UFC star Khamzat Chimaev gave a brutal response when asked whether he could beat KSI in a brawl. He responded by asking back who KSI is.
Olijadi Olatunji aka JJ or KSI is arguably the biggest influencer in boxing right now. The 30-year-old is a huge Youtuber and has become one of the most famous influencers right now. His presence has also spread to the combat sports community when began competing in boxing in 2017. He has had several boxing matches against fellow influencers which were pretty successful.
Despite being an influencer boxer, KSI took the sport pretty seriously and has a decent skill. His only boxing match against an actual professional boxer was during his most recent bout, where he took on Tommy Fury last October. KSI performed pretty well but lost via unanimous decision. The result was controversial as many fans and athletes believe it was a very competitive match.
His success in boxing raised questions among fans about how legitimate KSI skill really is. Recently, a fan asked UFC star Khamzat Chimaev whether he could defeat KSI in a brawl, and his response was hilarious.
“Hey Khamzat, do you think you could beat KSI in a fight?” A fan asked with huge enthusiasm.
However, Chimaev’s honest response was pretty brutal. ‘Borz’ simply doesn’t know about KSI. He asked the fan back about who KSI is.
“Who is this, brother?” Chimaev hilariously responded with a huge confusion on his face, to which the fan responded with a laugh.
Despite Chimaev not knowing who KSI is, some fans began speculating about the outcome of the match. The majority of people believe that Chimaev would finish KSI within seconds with mixed martial arts rule. Meanwhile, if it’s boxing, some believe that KSI would probably stand a chance.
Khamzat Chimaev possesses a phenomenal and aggressive wrestling skill and has proven it through his successful UFC career. The 29-year-old defeated most of his opponents in a dominant fashion and is currently still undefeated with a total of 13 matches.
His latest bout was last October when he took on former welterweight champion Kamaru Usman in a middleweight bout. It was undoubtedly his toughest match. But, Chimaev still came out victorious via a split decision.
After struggling making weight, Chimaev will be competing in the middleweight division from now. He is yearning to have a title bout. However, his next outing is yet to be confirmed.
