KSI, whose real name is JJ Olatunji, has a thriving YouTube channel as well as an undefeated boxing career. The 29-year-old is set to face unbeaten professional boxer Joe Fournier on Saturday, 13 May at the OVO Arena Wembley in London.
While he previously stated that he wants to retire from boxing at the end of the year, it now seems the Brit has a number of international fights on his mind including Manchester-man Tommy.
Speaking on the Misfits Boxing YouTube channel, KSI said: "I’ve got some sick ideas like me fighting [Amanda] Nunes in Brazil, I think that would be dope. Or me fighting Salt Papi in the Philippines would be nuts. Then me fighting Jake Paul whenever he f***ing wants to fight me.
"Or me fighting Tommy Fury in Wembley or the Manchester Arena. Bro, these are the things that I want to do, I want to do big things and I’m prepared, I’m always ready, always training hard and you can see every single camp and every time you see me at the weigh-in I’m ripped and I’m ready.
"I’m prepared because I put my all into it. Then, while I’m putting my all into it, I’m still promoting the fight. I’m still doing Sidemen videos, still doing music, I’m still doing Prime and all of these other things so there’s no excuse. For me, it’s all ‘go, go, go’ and let’s just win."
KSI believes he could beat Tommy, 23, despite the Love Island star having the number one YouTube boxer Jake back in February.
He previously told TalkSPORT: "I think Tommy Fury would be a great test for me.
"I love being tested, I love pushing myself and what I also love is that everyone is instantly counting me out. This happened when I fought Joe Weller, this happened when I fought Logan Paul, it just constantly happens.
"People think I’m the underdog and there’s no way I have a chance of winning, but I’m like ‘cool, put me in there then, let’s see’. I love it, I’m here for it and imagine when I come through and knock him out. I feel that I can [KO] him, I have the power and the pace.
“Tommy let’s f***ing do this bro, don’t be a b****, don’t be a p****. I’m here, I’m ready, I’m going to do what Jake Paul couldn’t do, I’m here for it. I think it would do crazy numbers and for me that’s what I want.”
