KSI has announced that he's returning to boxing, with a fight lined up for August. He shared the announcement in a very dramatic video, which you can watch here:
The YouTuber-turned-boxer teased a bout on 27 August, though it is not clear who he'll be up against just yet.
Naturally, a lot of people are speculating that it could be fellow YouTuber-turned-boxer, Jake Paul:

KSI has previously fought Jake's older brother Logan on two occasions - the first amateur boxing match was declared a draw, while the second professional bout KSI won by split decision.
One slight problem with the theory that KSI could be facing his second Paul brother is that Jake has already announced that he is next fighting on 13 August, and even these YouTuber boxers would surely not be silly enough to fight twice in a couple of weeks.

Another potential candidate could be Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, aka The Mountain.
The behemoth recently took on fellow former strongman Eddie Hall in Dubai, and was declared the victor by unanimous decision.
Now, obviously, Thor is considerably bigger than KSI - real name Olajide Olayinka Williams Olatunji - but he's seemingly not intimidated by the man mountain; in fact, he reckons he'd beat him.
When asked if he could beat Björnsson on the Sidemen YouTube channel, he said: "Yes, bro, he'd be slow.
"You have to be fast, in and out, in and out. It's one of those things because he's slow, while he's recharging to strike, you can hit him."
Meanwhile, Björnsson wasn't sure whether or not to take him seriously.
On Instagram, he wrote: "Interesting. I wonder if he truly believes he can beat me or if he's just fooling around. What do you guys think?"
Either way, it sounds like Alex Wassabi - yet another YouTuber-turned-boxer - is top of KSI's wish list.
He said: "I honestly want to f*** up Alex Wassabi.
"Have you seen the videos he is making? He actually thinks he can beat me. He was like 'you better not get in my weight class or you are done'. He said that I only have weight and that is the difference between me and him.
"I'm like bro I don't think you understand who you are talking to. I am not some guy who is going to get walked on. When I put my mind to s*** it's a very different energy."
