YouTube sensation KSI has made his retirement plans official, announcing his intention to leave boxing by the end of 2023. The 28-year-old played a significant role in pioneering influencer boxing, with his bouts against Joe Weller and Logan Paul helping to break new ground for content creators.
Despite taking a lengthy hiatus from the sport, KSI made his comeback in 2022 and managed to secure victories against Swarmz, Luis Pineda, and FaZe Temperrr, enhancing his record. However, fans are still keen to witness a long-awaited boxing bout between him and Jake Paul, despite the latter’s recent loss to Tommy Fury.
KSI has revealed his retirement plan and confirmed that he intends to say goodbye to boxing by the end of this year.
YouTuber and PRIME Hydration founder has set out a plan for his last few boxing ventures. He is scheduled to box Joe Fournier on May 13 on the Misfits 007 card and then wants to face the winner of the Kingpyn Tournament on August 26. KSI plans to make his final appearance in the ring on December 16 and has expressed a desire to box either Jake Paul or Tommy Fury before retiring for good.
According to KSI, his retirement plan would enable him to focus on making music again. He tweeted on March 13, “Retire and go back to music. Sounds like a good plan to me.”
KSI would probably box AnEsonGib from the Kingpyn event, but it’s unclear if he’ll face either Jake Paul or Tommy Fury. Tommy Fury’s comfortable victory against Jake in their last outing could affect KSI’s plans to face Jake Paul.
