Watch: Conor McGregor releases footage of himself sparring in boxing after Youtuber KSI calls him out

KSI is set to face FaZe Temperrr today at the Wembley Arena in London because of Conor McGregor’s teammate Dillon Danis’ last-minute withdrawal.

Prior to the fight, the English YouTuber spoke with talkSPORT about his desire to take down the UFC’s biggest star, Conor McGregor.

“In this world, anything is possible. If you had told me five or ten years ago that I could be fighting Conor McGregor, I would have laughed in your face.”

KSI clarified that as his brother has faced Mayweather, it is possible that he will fight Conor.

“Then my brother ended up fighting Floyd Mayweather, so literally anything is possible. I’m ready for anything.”

But before squaring off against the Notorious, KSI wants to flatline former Disney star Jake Paul, and the fight is scheduled for December this year.

“I was thinking, after I’ve flat-lined Jake [Paul], how cool would it be to have a go at the King [Conor McGregor]?

“I believe in myself so much that I believe I can take on anyone, within reason. I don’t want to fight [Artur] Beterbiev or Anthony Yarde.”

The British fighter confirmed that he will not just fight; he wants to win the game as he is there to build his legacy. 

“It’s not like I want to just fight and get money, I want to fight and win, because that is special. Taking part is dope, but winning, nothing can compare.”

After hearing the call out, Mystic Mac did not respond directly, but he posted a video of sparring from his Instagram account, where he was seen practicing boxing skills.

Notably, Conor began his career as a boxer before transitioning to MMA, and in his professional boxing career, he only fought against Floyd “Money” Mayweather and lost the fight. Currently, the 34-year-old is in the recovery phase after suffering from a tibia and fibula fracture at UFC 264 and is expected to return in the first quarter of 2023.
