KSI hits out at Jake Paul following Diaz fight ahead of Tommy Fury match
| Last updated
Paul defeated the UFC fighter following a 10-round fight on Saturday evening, which saw Diaz knocked to the ground during the fifth round. The judges' vote was unanimous.
It was a disappointing result for Diaz, being his first time in the boxing ring, but he swiftly stated that he wanted to return to the championship. Paul offered him a rematch at the Octagon immediately after the result decision was made.
Despite the impressive win for Paul, long-standing rival KSI took to X (Twitter) to knock the fighter down a few pegs.
The feud between KSI and Jake Paul has been longstanding, beginning in 2019 when the British YouTuber-turned-boxer defeated Paul's brother, Logan, during a bout.
Since then, the pair have been having digs at each other whenever one of them comes back into the limelight. It's unsure whether their rivalry is serious or just in jest.
Following yesterday's fight, KSI wrote: "That Jake Paul performance was terrible. October 14 you get to watch a real fight and challenge", along with a promotional picture showcasing his and Fury's fight.
Despite the disagreement between the YouTuber and the Paul brothers, Logan Paul and KSI set aside their differences when they collaborated on the highly popular energy drink, PRIME.
The drink sent young fans into a frenzy, causing some to pay up to £100 and above to be able to own a single bottle.
Aldi stocked it for a short while and shoppers were filmed as chaos broke out between hopefuls trying to secure the drink.
KSI hasn't only come for Paul though, he's also taken jabs at Fury earlier this year following Paul's defeat in February saying that he would 'destroy' them both.
KSI also struck again, claiming that Paul was avoiding having a fight with him after he'd asked to challenge him in the ring.
Paul responded: "$30million to the winner, 0 to the loser if you want me to agree to your request of 180 pounds and rehydration clause. Agree to that and I’m in. You just supposedly bet £10m so this should be easy to contract right?"
The back and forth ended with KSI blowing up, writing:'It's been 5 years. We're both ready, just sign the contract and let's fight you p****."
