KSI didn’t devote time to his boxing career after scoring a win against Logan Paul. However, that hasn’t shrunk his confidence about getting into the ring, as he recently sent a stern message to Floyd Mayweather.
After Logan Paul’s appearance against ‘TBE’, the KSI vs Mayweather matchup may not seem bizarre anymore. While the five-division champion had actually posted a social media callout to KSI in the past, it may now have garnered a negative opinion for the unbeaten boxer. Speaking with his former opponent, Logan Paul, on the IMPAULSIVE Podcast, KSI claimed that he would beat Floyd Mayweather in a potential fight.
“I mean I would f*** up [Floyd] Mayweather, but that’s another (laughs),” said the Internet celebrity.
50-0 as a pro, Mayweather had a tough time against Logan Paul who was relatively stronger and larger. While KSI will relish a similar advantage in a possible clash, it’s hard to picture Floyd Mayweather doing something different from what he did in his last fight.
That said, as the five-division champion has shown little interest in doing any other exhibition appearances, we may never see KSI vs Floyd Mayweather happen.
Despite all the confidence about beating Logan Paul, Mayweather couldn’t offer much action. The bizarre matchup didn’t validate judges’ decisions. Hence, as neither boxer could secure the KO, Mayweather had to depart win-less against a YouTuber boxer.
Did KSI find a loophole in Floyd Mayweather’s game?
Aged 44, Mayweather has clearly passed his prime. KSI and several other people saw flaws in his performance. Nevertheless, despite being the bigger boxer, Logan Paul struggled to crack Mayweather on June 6.

The bigger puncher, who almost ran across the ropes to injure Mayweather, planted all his shots in vain. Floyd Mayweather showcased his defensive abilities and guarded himself throughout.
Meanwhile, he also returned with action frequently and hurt Logan Paul. Hence, given ‘Money’s fight IQ and defensive abilities, KSI might have to re-think his claim. Even if he has found a loophole, a past his prime Mayweather proved he is still leagues above the celebrity fighters.
