Here, SunSport runs down who could be next on the social media sensation’s road to Paul.

Joe Fournier

Fournier, 39, is a millionaire nightclub tycoon-turned unbeaten 9-0 boxer who has tirelessly called out KSI, 29.

He was ringside in London to watch as Temperrr, 29, was left out for the count and faced off with KSI afterwards.

It leaves Fournier as a frontrunner to fight KSI next.

Tyron Woodley

Woodley, 40, crossed over to the boxing ring for his pair of bouts against Paul, 25, which ended in points and KO losses.

The ex-UFC champion was considered as KSI’s next fight until 2-0 MMA fighter Dillon Danis, 29, was selected, only to pull out.

KSI has poured cold water over fighting Woodley but the fans have made it clear they would like him to face the American next.

Salt Papi

Filipino Salt Papi, 28, has emerged as one of the most talented celebrity fighters, who is now 3-0 with two brutal KOs.

He knocked out MMA fighter and vlogger Josh Brueckner, 27, at Wembley and received praise from across the boxing world.

Papi would be a high risk and low reward fight for KSI, but the TikToker called out the internet mega-star.

Tommy Fury

Fury, 23, has been caught up in the celeb boxing space after trying twice to fight Paul, talks which still resume.

And the 2019 Love Islander has made it clear Paul and KSI are the only two social media personalties he would entertain fighting.

KSI has also opened the door to facing Fury in the past but again it could pose as a risky bout to take due to the experience disparity.

  • Defense
  • Combination
  • Rotation

Punching Techniques

There are seven types: Left Hook (right hook), Right Hook (uppercut), Cross (cross), Straight, Overhand, Underhand. Each punch has its own technique. Some punches need more power than others. For example, an uppercut is a powerful punch. A straight punch, on the other hand requires less power and is quicker than other punches.

There are many combinations of punches. These are combinations that combine punches to accomplish a particular goal. A combination can contain multiple parts. A left hook followed with a right-cross will cause injury to the opponent’s jaw.

Guard Techniques

A boxer protects himself by using his body. He does this using his legs and arms, elbows as well as hands, knees and feet.

A boxer must use his legs to defend against kicks. If he gets kicked, he raises one leg and turns away from his attacker. If the attack comes from the front, then he bends his knees to avoid being kicked on the side. But if the attack comes in the back, he will stand straight and block the kick using his foot.


Elbow strikes are very effective because they inflict much pain. You can either deliver an elbow strike directly, or indirectly. Directly, you strike your opponent with your forearm. Indirectly, you hit him with another portion of your arm.


Boxers use their hands to block incoming blows. Boxers raise their fists to block incoming blows and then move in the direction of the attacker’s attack. Then they make contact with the attacker’s fist.


When receiving a blow to the stomach, abdomen or chest, a boxer should bend his knees to absorb the impact. For defense purposes, knee strikes are common.

When attacked, a boxer should step back and deliver counter-attacks. This allows him to put distance between himself, his opponent, and the ring. Boxers should also keep their balance when counter-attacking.


In order to box effectively, a boxer needs to establish a stance. His stance will determine how he defends. It defines where he faces his opponent and how he positions his body. There are many positions that boxers can adopt. Here are some of the most common ones:

  • Low stance
  • High stance
  • Southpaw stance
  • Western stance

The Body Movement

In order to win a fight, a boxer must move around his opponent. This means changing your speed, position and rhythm.


When a boxer throws a punch, he rotates in order to increase the reach of his arm. The rotation is done at different speeds depending on the type of punch.


The timing of each punch determines the effectiveness of a combination. A combination that is effective starts with a strong punch, and ends with one that is weak.
