Jake Paul criticizes KSI and his "gimmick" of fighting two opponents in one night

After the youtuber KSI announced his upcoming appearance in the ring against two opponents in the same night, Jake Paul was quick to take to social networks to express his opinion and, although he did not name him directly, he made it clear that everything is headed to be a publicity stunt.

KSI announced that on August 27 he will face rapper Swarmz and that same night professional boxer Ivan Nikolov (3-16-2) in fights to be held at the O2 in London.

And although for many it might sound strange that a boxer, or in this case KSI, would face two opponents on the same night, it has already happened, including four opponents defeated by former heavyweight world champion George Foreman.

George Foreman's four fights in one night

"George Foreman fought 4 people in 1 night and it was an awful showing," said Jake Paul on Twitter after Olajide Olayinka Williams Olatunji, better known as KSI, made the announcement of his appearance next August 27. "At first it seemed like a good idea but eventually it actually pissed the fans off because they realized all the opponents were put in to lose. It was was basically a stunt, not worth the price of admission."

That night in 1975 when Foreman faced those four opponents, there was even booing after his performance, as they were not opponents of his quality and it was very noticeable that they would be outclassed by the former world champion.

KSI was originally scheduled to fight Alex Wassabi, who had to withdraw due to a concussion. Now his opponents will be the rapper and Nikolov, who despite having three wins on his 21-fight record, has won more than any Jake Paul opponent, KSI said.

"He's going to be the most durable boxer I've ever faced, he loves to swing and has decent head movement; he can take punches. He's a professional boxer and he knows how to keep himself safe; what the hell what the hell am I doing! I know you're wondering what his boxing record is; he's 3-16-2, so yes, that's three wins and 16 losses, but that's still more wins than any of Jake Paul's opponents combined," he said.

Jake Paul and KSI to fight in 2023

Jake Paul and KSI agreed a few days ago on social media that they will fight in 2023, a fight where the winner would take all the proceeds from the fight and the one who comes out with the loss will go home empty-handed.
