KSI has reportedly offered substantial cash incentives to his sparring partners, challenging them to land a knockout blow on him.
The renowned YouTuber-turned-boxer is poised to go head-to-head against Tommy Fury this Saturday at the AO Arena in Manchester. Both contenders will be putting their undefeated records on the line.
24-year-old Fury has already won over KSI’s longtime adversary Jake Paul, earlier this year. Now, he’s seeking yet another seemingly straightforward victory.
Yet, KSI appears to be elevating his training to an unprecedented level this time around. Reports suggest he’s offering substantial sums of money to anyone who can deliver a knockout blow.
With victories over formidable opponents like Joe Weller, Logan Paul, and Joe Fournier, it’s evident that KSI is leaving no stone unturned in his preparation for this upcoming bout.
His most recent YouTube upload showcases the extraordinary intensity he’s bringing to his training, often pushing himself until he can barely stand.
This transformation is glaringly evident, as attested by London Shootfighters head coach Alexis Demetriades. He recently remarked, “From where he was at when he first came to where he is now, he’s come on leaps and bounds.”
“He’s only sparring professional boxers, this whole camp, forget MMA fighters, forget amateurs. He’s sparring guys 14-0, 13-0, 12-2, 8-0, 6-0, all with knockouts and all ranked by the British Boxing Board of Control.”
“If they think that we’re not taking this seriously, we’ve got guys who are ranked higher than Tommy Fury in the gym. And they’re not just moving around, they’re trying to kill JJ and there’s bonus money on the table for them to knock him out.”
“From a coaching point of view, all I want to do is put the correct guys in front on KSI and see whether or not he can deal with that and if he can’t then he shouldn’t be fighting.”
