Jake Paul and KSI set to 'face off in ring' in London on August 27 with Problem Child working Alex Wassabi's corner | The Sun

JAKE PAUL is set to go face-to-face with KSI at London's O2 Arena – just three weeks after his fight at Madison Square Garden.

YouTube sensation KSI is set to throw down with fellow social media star Alex Wassabi at the hallowed O2 on August 27.



And the Brit will have to go face-to-face with Paul – who he's been itching to fight for the last two years – as The Problem Child will be in the corner of Wassabi.

That's according to YouTube and Instagram star Keemstar, who reportedly dropped the news on Twitter.

Neither Paul nor Wassabi have confirmed the partnership, which would throw a spanner into the works for KSI.

Should Paul corner Wassabi, he'll do so a mere three weeks after his showdown with Hasim Rahman Jr.

The former Disney star will throw down with Rahman Jr – the son of former heavyweight champion Hasim Sr – at Madison Square Garden.

KSI, real name Olajide Olatunji, hasn't set foot inside the ring since his controversial split decision victory over Paul's brother Logan in November 2019.

But he'll be more motivated than ever to have his hand raised against Wassabi – who defeated his younger brother Deji in March.

The 29-year-old is relishing the challenge ahead, saying: "I can’t wait to repeatedly punch the man I’ve had beef with for years.

KSI, however, is already compromised going into the fight as he recently suffered a BROKEN NOSE in training.
