Jake Paul Believes KSI Should Have Recent Boxing Win Vacated

While YouTuber KSI has not devoted himself as much to boxing as Jake Paul, the British star is still known to get into the ring from time to time. He is undefeated in seven fights (one professional, four exhibition, two amateur) and is well-regarded in boxing circles.

On May 13, KSI faced British boxer and businessman Joe Fournier. Fournier was 13-0 in his professional career but was coming off a loss in his most recent fight. In September 2021, Fournier loss by decision to David Haye. The fight was for the Misfits Boxing cruiserweight title, held by KSI. The YouTuber had won the belt in 2022 and successfully defended it in January 2023. While a hyped matchup, it was over quickly. KSI needed just two rounds to land a KO on Fournier. However, not everyone is happy with the result.

Jake Paul Claims KSI Threw An Elbow

Soon after the fight, Jake Paul took to Twitter, posting a video of KSI's knockout. I respect boxing too much to respect what that was. "If that was indeed a real boxing match it will be ruled a no contest or disqualification," Paul wrote. The YouTuber-turned-boxer was referring to the apparent contact between KSI's elbow and Fournier's face that scored the knockout. In the footage, Fournier appears to dodge a punch from KSI, only to make contact with the YouTuber's elbow. Paul reiterated his sentiment on Instagram.

At the time of writing, the fight has been officially called as a victory for KSI. However, that could change in the coming days. If DAZN, the boxing promoter who oversees and broadcasts Misfits Boxing, deems the incident worth of review, the result could become one of two things. Firstly, the Fournier could be declared the winner. If the elbow was ruled to be intentional, then KSI could be disqualified. However, the more likely outcome in the case of a review would be a ruling of no contest. This would come in the event that an illegal elbow was deemed to have been thrown but no intentionally.
