American YouTuber Alex Wassabi, who defeated Babadeji Daniel Olatunji aka “Deji”, one of the most renowned YouTubers from England and the younger brother of Olajide Olayinka Williams “JJ” Olatunji Jr aka “KSI”, has expressed his desire to go after the latter and has taken a shot at the older sibling, calling for an encounter in the squared circle at 175.
Drop some weight, let’s get it: Alex Wassabi wants to fight KSI at 175
Alex Wassabi and Deji featured in the main event of a stacked fight card which took place on 5th March at the OVO Arena Wembley. The fight ended in a split decision victory for Wassabi, with Deji losing his third fight with KSI as well as former unified world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua’s presence in the ringside.
The five round had gone the distance, with Wassabi coming out as the better boxer. At the end of the five rounds, one judge scored the fight 49-47 for Deji, while the other two (50-46, 48-47) picked Wassabi. Winning on his debut as a pugilist and putting Deji down to 0-3, Wassabi has been oozing with confidence and for his next appearance in the squared circle, the 31-year-old has decided to go after none other than his Brit opponent’s older brother KSI.
“Yeah I’m down,” said Wassabi on fighting KSI after his win over Deji, “KSI let’s go, drop some weight, let’s get it… It depends on him if he wants to drop weight or not. I think he can do it. I don’t remember exactly what he weighed when he first fought Logan [Paul] but I think it was 180. I fought at 170, we can come it at 175. Let’s go.”
KSI has made two boxing appearances so far, both against Logan Paul and has remained undefeated. While their first fight, a white-collar boxing amateur boxing match, ended in a majority draw, their second encounter was a sanctioned pro bout with KSI picking up a split decision victory over Paul.
