After his match with Faze Temper in January, “The Nightmare” has been sidelined. The British star was supposed to fight Dillon Danis that night. However, “El Jefe” bowed out of the bout just before fight week, leaving the Brazilian to fill in at the last minute.
The YouTuber-turned-boxer won by knockout in the opening round of the main event on DAZN’s pay-per-view service. After the match, he confronted Joe Fournier outside the ring. There has been much back and forth between the two about having a fight.
This will be possible in the month of May for the two. KSI has scheduled a fight with Joe Fournier for London, England’s OVO Arena Wembley. Similar to the YouTuber’s other battles, this one will also be shown on DAZN‘s pay-per-view service.
The 9-0 light-heavyweight is widely considered to be the toughest opponent the YouTuber has faced yet. When Fournier faced David Haye in a 2021 exhibition match, Haye won by decision, marking Fournier’s first and only professional loss.
KSI Reveals That His Fight With Joe Fournier Will Happen On May 13
KSI is unconcerned about taking on his greatest professional challenge yet. Thus far in his career, “The Nightmare” has not been tested by a legitimate professional boxer. Even though he has knocked out notable talents like Faze Temper and Luis Alcaraz Pineda, they haven’t had much success in the pros.
Fournier, meanwhile, has an unblemished record of nine wins and zero losses in his professional boxing career. Nevertheless, the businessman is a physically superior opponent, having sparred with the likes of former heavyweight champion David Haye. The YouTuber, though, is not concerned.
The battle between KSI and Joe Fournier was just announced. in an interview with Misfits Boxing, KSI gave a preview of the bout. There he bragged about the unbeaten boxer’s credentials, including the fact that he’s been in the game longer than both Jake Paul and Tommy Fury.
The British superstar, though, doesn’t think it will make a difference on fight night. The co-creator of PRIME has teased his upcoming comeback, saying:
“Fournier has more experience than Tommy and Jake. Even getting in the ring with David Haye just shows the levels that he is at. But the difference is, I’m KSI man. I am like no other, and as soon as people enter the ring with me, they understand they’re in hell.”

For those who don’t know, KSI is an Arsenal fan. He is a co-owner of the PRIME hydration drink. They are the official hydration partners of the Gunners. That is one of the other reasons that he is so popular, apart from his owner career.
His fan following is just growing and every now and then, you can see him trend on Social Media platforms like Twitter. It is just going right for him at present and ideally the Gooners will want their club to win the League title. It will be their first since 2004.
