TYSON FURY advised Jake Paul to beat KSI in a YouTuber battle.
A grudge match has been going on between the social media superstars for almost three years – ever since Paul defeated KSI’s brother Deji.
The pair have often dealt verbal jabs on social media, but WBC heavyweight king Fury reckons Paul – his brother Tommy’s rival – will deliver the decisive blow if they ever strike down.
When asked who would win between the two, The Gypsy King said ESPN: “Jake Paul, every day all day.
Fury, 34, was pressed further on his prediction, replying: “I just think he’s beating him cold.”
Paul, 25, called out KSI – real name Olajide Olatunji – after watching his rival win back-to-back fights at the O2 Arena in August.
But The Problem Child is adamant the Brit will never share the ring with him.
Late last month, he tweeted a mock-up of himself taking out KSI with the accompanying caption, “Enjoy this pic because he’ll never fight me.”
However, KSI is adamant that one day he will fight younger brother Paul – who he hopes to end his boxing career against.
He said: “I found out, you guys won’t be happy until I fight Jake Paul.

“That’s why I don’t see the zeal that you want me to fight Jake Paul so quickly.
“I said I will fight him in 2023, the only reason I returned to the boxing scene is to fight and beat Jake Paul.
“So I don’t really understand why people complain about the people I fight.

“Why don’t we just enjoy the trip? Enjoy the ride because ladies and gentlemen, once I fight Jake Paul, I’m done.
“I don’t box anymore, I would have consolidated my legacy and then I’ll hang up the gloves forever.
“Why do we want to rush this?”
Paul plans to return to the ring early next year after a unanimous decision victory over UFC greats Anderson Silva in October.
KSI, meanwhile, will throw off with mixed martial artist Dillon Danis on January 14th.
