KSI names THREE potential opponents for next fight including ex-UFC champion, undefeated boxer and YouTube star

KSI has named THREE potential opponents for his next fight as he prepares for a massive Grudge Match with Jake Paul.

The YouTube, music and crossover boxing star returned to the ring against online rivals Faze Temperrr last Saturday at Wembley Arena.

KSI, 29, was scheduled to face Dillon Danis, 29, a 2-0 MMA fighter commonly known as Conor McGregor’s training partner.

But Danis withdrew less than two weeks in advance, and 29-year-old player Temperr was called up from the undercard as a backup.

In the end, it didn’t matter who was in the other corner as KSI knocked out Temperrr with a two-hit combo in round one.

He then called Paul, 26, but insisted he’d have one more fight with the American before a blockbuster later this year.

And KSI discussed who his next fight might be with in a Twitter Space discussion Tolbzter.

He said: “Look, I have several options. I think I’ll have a little call with my team tomorrow and find out what we’re going to do.

“There are many opportunities. We may host a few MisFits events to try and help with our options.

“But obviously a lot of people are saying me versus Salt Papi and you know that could be an option.

“A lot of people say me and obviously [Joe] Fournier, me and Woodley, etc.”

Salt Papi, 28, rose to fame on TikTok but impressed in the boxing ring with three wins.

He has scored two brutal knockouts on KSI’s undercard, most recently at Wembley against vlogger and MMA fighter Josh Brueckner, 27.

Fournier, 39, was also in attendance to watch KSI win.

The pair faced each other after Temperrr’s elimination, fueling speculation of a summer fight.

And Woodley, 40, the ex-UFC welterweight champion, switched to boxing twice, losing to Paul.

He was beaten on points in August 2021 before suffering a brutal KO loss in the rematch four months later.

Both Woodley and Fournier were considered before Danis signed to fight KSI only to withdraw.

KSI has admitted he’s keeping his options open and refuses to be nailed to a next opponent.

He said: “No one is set in stone. I said before there are levels and I’m on a different level.

“I didn’t want to fight another YouTuber in that area, I kind of wanted to fight someone like Dillon, then me versus Fournier, and then Jake.

“I didn’t want to go around bullying the other YouTuber influencers in this space because I’m trying to help them grow.”
