Logan Paul has waxed lyrical over KSI’s work ethic ahead of his upcoming fight with Tommy Fury.
The pair are set to clash on October 14 in Manchester and on the same card, Logan will take on MMA fighter Dillon Danis.
Fury has previously beaten KSI’s biggest rival and fellow social media star, Jake Paul, by split decision in February earlier this year.
And so this will be an extremely tough task for KSI, given that Fury comes from a professional boxing background and has been involved in the sport his whole life.
Meanwhile KSI has only fought a handful of times, including twice against Logan, winning one and drawing one, but the pair have since become friends and business partners, co-founding the drinks company, Prime.
And Logan has witnessed first hand how seriously KSI is taking his fight with Fury, as the American revealed on the Flagrant Podcast: “JJ (KSI) works so hard, I’ve never seen anything like it.
“Twice a day, six times a week.
“If I did that I’d crash in two weeks, he’s insane.”
Meanwhile, having watched a video of Fury training alongside his older brother and WBC heavyweight world champion, Tyson Fury, KSI is incredibly confident going into their bout.
“If this is his training, then I’m gonna absolutely destroy him this October,” KSI tweeted after watching the video.
Paul recently made a bold claim when comparing KSI to boxing legend Floyd Mayweather – insisting he is a tougher fighter than the five-weight world champion.
Explaining his decision, he stated: “He’s just a dog. He has this tenacity and this intensity that I’ve never seen.
“When you’re in a ring with him, he wants to kill you. It’s the only thing he cares about. He can’t lose.”
