People in stitches as KSI does push-ups mid-knockdown in both fights
| Last updated
KSI proved himself to be an icon once more at the O2 Arena last night - not only did he land two wins in one night, but he was also seen doing a few push-ups mid-knockdown in both fights.
The YouTuber-turned-boxer broke new ground by fighting twice in the same night yesterday (27 August), kicking off by KOing rapper Swarmz in the second round.
Next up, the 29-year-old took out 2-5 professional boxer Luis Alcaraz Pineda in a third-round knockout, becoming reigning champion of the night.

Clearly it was a walk in the park for KSI, as he was seen casually doing a few pushups after knocking down his opponents mid-fight.
Dozens of people have flocked to the comments section of the clips, and while some were critical of KSI's 'disrespect', others thought his mid-show workouts were hilarious.
"Must of been training hard he’s got the endless stamina," wrote one, while another said: "Bro that s**t is funny how he doing push ups during a knock out. Respect for KSI."
A third wrote: "KSI doing push ups whilst fighting Pineda," alongside a laughing face emoji.

KSI spoke to the crowd post-victory to say: "Ladies and gentlemen, are you not entertained? Two fights, one night, two KO’s. I talked the talk and I walked the walk."
He also took the opportunity to call out a number of potential future opponents, including vlogger Slim, Andrew Tate and Tommy Fury, among others.
"Slim [Albaher] looks good, I want a piece of that," he said. "Austin [McBroom] vs AnEson Gib, I want the winner of that.
"Andrew Tate, I want a piece of that. Tommy Fury, I want a piece of that. I’m warmed up and I’m excited. Nothing can harm me."
Despite previously being his boxing opponent, Logan Paul and KSI - real name Olajide Olayinka Williams 'JJ' Olatunji - are now friends and business partners, having launched an energy drink brand called Prime.
And you can bet Logan was there to congratulate his pal, saying: "JJ's my best friend and business partner. I'm actually really proud.
"I'm proud of what he's put on, I'm proud of Misfits' promotion. Everything he's done here looked fantastic. He's made history tonight."
The reaction to KSI's win wasn't quite as positive from Logan's brother Jake Paul, however, who took no time at all to react to the boxer's decision not to name him in the post-match callout.
When asked about why he didn't name Jake, KSI later explained to DAZN: "There's so many more and that's why I was calling out everyone, bro.
"There's so many people I have to go through before I get to Jake. Jake is definitely the main goal, but soon come. Soon come."

Massive opponent announcement this week.
Jake has since taken to Twitter to write: "Smart man KSI is not calling me out. He knows the truth," adding: "Nate Robinson would beat KSI."
He later teased a potential upcoming fight, stating: "Just got the call. Massive opponent announcement this week."
Will we be seeing KSI vs Jake Paul in the coming months? Time will tell.
