Piers Morgan Says He Would 'Crush KSI Like A Gnat'
Piers Morgan has slammed KSI, saying he would 'crush him like a gnat'.
The outspoken presenter was speaking to the YouTuber on Good Morning Britain following his victory over rival social media star Logan Paul this weekend.
But despite the Brit defeating the American by split-decision at the Staple Centre, Los Angeles, on Saturday night, Piers said he would have no such trouble.
Responding to the (presumably pretty slim) possibility of fighting the 54-year-old, KSI, real name Olajide Olayinka Williams 'JJ' Olatunji, said: "I think that would be a lovely fight. I'm very down for that. I think that should happen in a few weeks' time."
Hitting back, Piers said: "I would crush you like a gnat."
To which KSI replied: "Come on then!"
But not content with calling out the ageing television 'personality', KSI went one further and said he would beat seven shades of s**** out of popstar Justin Bieber.
Piers said: "If Justin Bieber actually wants to fight me then obviously we'll make it happen.'
He added: "Call him out, be a proper boxer.'
However, KSI didn't take it seriously, saying the Canadian should 'stick to singing'. He said: "Well, no. I'd destroy him. There's no point, it would be nothing. Justin Bieber is nothing, he doesn't know how to fight, he doesn't know how to do anything combat sports wise. Let him just stick to singing.'
Co-presenter Susanna Reid then added: "It wouldn't be a fair fight, would it?"
To which KSI replied: "Yes, obviously. I beat Logan Paul? Why would I fight Justin Bieber?"
This hilarious piece of television comes just a couple of days after KSI defeated Paul in a six-round boxing match.
The 26-year-old defeated Paul in a narrow victory, with the judges scoring the contest 56-55, 57-54, 56-55 in KSI's favour.
Following the win, KSI said: "I've never worked so hard. In the ring, in camp it was tough but I just kept going. I was ready, I was on fire. He couldn't deal with my jabs to the body tonight."
The two had previously battled in August last year, in a fight which was declared a draw.
