KSI criticized Conor McGregor for “embarrassing” himself at Anthony Joshua’s fight.
Both stars were ringside in August and watched Joshua knock out Robert Helenius.
After the win, AJ did a lap around the ring and collided with both McGregor and KSI.
And McGregor was caught berating KSI until Joshua stepped in to support his “guy”.
KSI has since revealed the bizarre incident and claimed the Irishman was trying to talk his way into a mega fight.
He told Misfits Boxing’s Youtube channel: “It was pretty strange, if I’m honest.
“I think I had heard Conor say that I can’t box and this and that. It was quite embarrassing for him because AJ said, ‘No, that’s my type’, so he looked a bit stupid there.”
“But with Conor I definitely think he wants a bite of the cherry, he wants a piece of the king and he understands that this is exactly where the money is at stake.”
“Everyone is a normal person at the end of the day, just like me, just a normal guy, and I treat everyone the same.”
“Just because he’s Conor McGregor doesn’t mean anything to me.”

McGregor, 35, surprisingly called out KSI, 30, while mocking his fighting skills in the ring immediately after Joshua’s knockout win.
He said, “I know your husband is KSI in the crowd and he wouldn’t be able to pack eggs if he worked in an egg packing factory.”
“So if he wants to get in here, I’ll give him one final yoke, with my bare fingers if you want!”
