THE influencer boxing world is waiting with bated breath for KSI’s next move following his controversial win over Joe Fournier.
The YouTube sensation stayed unbeaten on Saturday night with a second-round knockout of the self-proclaimed billionaire at the Wembley Arena.
KSI locked horns with Joe Fournier on Saturday night
The YouTuber controversially knocked Fournier out with an illegal
KSI is now plotting his next move
But replays showed The Nightmare laid out Fournier with an illegal elbow – which is reportedly set to be investigated.
Despite the cloud hanging over his latest win, KSI is looking forward, not backwards.
And with that in mind, SunSport thought it’d only be right to run through the five men in contention to face the Brit next.
KSI faced off with Tommy Fury after his victory over Joe Fournier
The seed for a showdown with the former Love Island star was planted several weeks before KSI threw down with Fournier.

KSI and jake Paul are long-time rivals
KSI’s rivalry with fellow YouTuber turned boxer Paul has stretched back the best part of five years.
The pair have repeatedly traded verbal jabs and took part in a fiery face-off in 2020 after Paul’s stoppage win over AnEson Gib.
Fans of the duo are desperate to see them trade blows – although Paul wants to fry bigger fish after his August showdown with former UFC star Nate Diaz.
Former Bellator fighter Anthony Taylor is a contender to share the ring with KSI next
Former Bellator fighter Taylor has made quite the splash in the influence boxing world – locking horns with ex-Love Islanders Fury and Idris Virgo.
‘Pretty Boy’ has become one of Misfits Boxing’s go-to fighters to fill their cards and they could very well pivot to him should KSI struggle to land an opponent.
Former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley could be an option for Jake Paul
Former UFC welterweight champion Woodley could be a shock opponent for KSI should bouts with Fury and Paul fail to come to fruition.
The duo have gone back and forth with each other on social media over the last year – with KSI repeatedly mocking The Chosen One’s knockout loss to Paul.
Woodley has gone 0-2 in his post-MMA boxing career and would no doubt jump at the opportunity to get his hands on KSI and try to pick up his first win in the sport.
Given the illegal manner in which their fight ended, a rematch with KSI and Fournier makes the most sense.
KSI may deny finishing the fight with an elbow, but he can’t escape the clear fact he landed an illegal blow.
The honourable thing for him to do would be to acknowledge the accidental strike and run it back with Fournier.
But that seems unlikely now that he’s got a big money fight with Fury in the palms of his hands.
