KSI reacts to Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul fight rumour

KSI seemingly does not believe his old rival Logan Paul will be boxing Floyd Mayweather anytime soon.

Rumours swirled on social media on Wednesday suggesting a fight between the pair was a ‘done deal’, however it’s understood this is not the case.

According to TMZ, Floyd has been approached about the exhibition, but is leaning towards a ‘no’.

It’s claimed the bout is ‘far from a done deal’ and appears unlikely to happen as things stand.

The 50-0 multi-weight world champion has been retired since 2015, only coming back to beat Conor McGregor in 2017.

He also travelled to Tokyo for an exhibition bout with kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa at the end of 2018.

In the aftermath of that easy win, Mayweather said he’d be open for further exhibitions, but the crossover against YouTube star Paul appears very far-fetched.

KSI reacted with a post on Twitter which simply read: “My thoughts on Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul.”

It was accompanied by a picture of a cap – meaning he believes the rumour is false.

Mayweather has been back sparring though, and tipped to return by the man he’s shared the ring with recently – Denis Douglin.

Douglin has said via Vegas Insider: “100 per cent I think he could come back.

“As a fighter it’s amazing to see another fighter, especially an African-American fighter, doing so well, making so much money, having fun, milking the game – so why not keep going?

“If you’re safe and you feel protected and you’re smart, I wanna say keep going.

The 43-year-old remains in peak physical condition

“I don’t think he’ll come back and fight the top guys like Errol Spence or Terence Crawford.

“But I do think he’ll come back and probably do some exhibition matches because he loves the sport and being a competitor.

“But I don’t think, at this time, he’ll put himself in a position to seriously hurt himself.“
