Months after Conor McGregor’s call out, KSI “interested” in boxing bout with ex-UFC double champ

KSI has recently set the combat sports world abuzz with a possible future match against none other than Conor McGregor. This tantalizing prospect emerged following an intriguing encounter between KSI and MMA superstar McGregor at the O2 Arena last month.

The former two-division UFC champion, McGregor, was present at the event as a sponsor for his Forged Irish Stout brand, and he played a significant role for the promotion of the boxing event alongside Eddie Hearn.

KSI is interested in fighting Conor McGregor

KSI recently shared his perspective on potentially boxing Conor McGregor, calling him out in the aftermath of Anthony Joshua’s fight in an interview with Misfits Boxing. He recounted the moment, noting that McGregor’s criticism of him didn’t align with the fact that Anthony Joshua is friends with KSI.

KSI delved deeper into the intriguing fight prospect, commenting that McGregor recognized the monetary benefits of fighting him, which is what led the Irishman to call him out. The YouTuber remains undefeated in professional boxing, although his opponents have generally been considered less challenging. His most notable boxing victory came against Logan Paul, his friend and business partner.


Paul is scheduled to face Tommy Fury, the younger half-brother of Tyson Fury in the main event of the MF & DAZN: X Series 10 – The Prime Card on October 14, 2023. The event is billed as a double main event with Dillon Danis and Logan Paul squaring off against each other. The pre-fight press conference for the event already garnered massive attention as Danis and Paul exchanged barbs with each other.

Conor McGregor challenged KSI at a boxing event

What unfolded after Anthony Joshua’s triumphant performance was unprecedented. Conor made a grand entrance into the ring and issued a challenge to the YouTuber for a bare-knuckle fight. This left fans and spectators in awe, as McGregor had previously shown no interest in fighting YouTubers.

The prospect of a fight between the YouTuber and The Notorious has sparked considerable interest among fans. McGregor wants to do a bare-knuckle boxing match, which is something that both the fighters have not fought yet. McGregor recently faced off with Mike Perry after his victory at bare-knuckle where Perry is a big star.


The potential matchup represents an opportunity to prove himself in the world of boxing for KSI. The YouTube sensation has demonstrated dedication and skill in the sport with notable KO victories. A clash with McGregor would undoubtedly be his most significant challenge. However, a win could solidify his status as a legitimate boxer.
