I’ve shared the ring with Jake Paul and Tommy Fury… KSI will lose to BOTH and will never fight me, says Anthony Taylor

KSI has celebrity money-fights with Tommy Fury and Jake Paul on his radar.

The YouTube, music and crossover boxing star has long been in a war of words with Paul, fuelling demand for a grudge fight.

But after Fury’s February split-decision win over the American in Saudi Arabia, KSI turned his attention to the former Love Islander, 24.

One man well placed to predict the pair of social media showdowns is MMA fighter-turned influencer boxer Anthony Taylor.

Taylor spent two training camps sparring Paul in 2021 and went on to lose over four rounds to Fury.

And he has backed both to beat KSI, who is unbeaten in his seven bouts.

Taylor, 34, told SunSport: “I think KSI loses both, personally. He hasn’t fought harder opponents. 

“Now his fans will go, ‘He’s undefeated.’ Look at the guys he’s fought, if Jake Paul fought the same opponents and finished them in the same fashion, you’ll be saying the same thing.” 

Paul, 26, snubbed a rematch after his first boxing loss to instead return on August 5 in Texas against ex-UFC man Nate Diaz, 38.

So KSI, 30, is instead closing in on a deal to face undefeated 9-0 Fury, with an October bout in the UK being lined up.

But as talks drag on amid disputes over weight and money, Taylor offered to step in.

Although he doubts KSI – who trains at MMA gym London Shootfighters – would be advised to take the fight.

Taylor said: “To be honest, it’s not realistic.

“KSI’s coach is not going to allow him to fight me because KSI has an MMA stance, I’m an MMA fighter. 

“I know how to read that stance quick and easy, I’d pick him apart.

“KSI’s being smart, he’s thinking, ‘If I’m going to lose to Anthony, it’s after I lose to Tommy and Jake.’” 

Taylor returns on Saturday in Nashville on a Misfits Boxing card promoted by KSI against Paul Bamba, 33, who is 5-3.

He said: “Kudos for stepping in that ring with me, he’s got heart but skills? He doesn’t have the skill set that comes near me. 

“He doesn’t work harder than me, he doesn’t train harder than me, he doesn’t train with the same sparring partners as me. 

“He doesn’t know what it’s like to dig deep and get that victory. He doesn’t know what a dog fight is.

“He doesn’t know the struggles of a fight, he hasn’t been fighting that long.”

How to Learn to Box for Exercise

Learning boxing will help you improve your self-confidence and physical fitness. Boxing has become a very popular sport. It involves strength, speed and agility.

Boxing is an excellent way to lose weight and feel great about yourself. You’ll love the activity and want to continue it.

There are many types of boxing training programs. Some take place at gyms or health clubs while others require you to train at home. You can also study online from any location in the world.

Be sure to consider your goals when choosing a program. Also, ensure it fits your lifestyle. Exercises that build muscle mass, flexibility, endurance, cardiovascular endurance, and improve overall well-being are the best.

Consider whether you prefer a beginner or advanced course. Beginner’s courses usually cover basic techniques such as shadowboxing or sparring, mittwork and punching combinations. Advanced programs often cover more complex movements, and include a greater variety of exercises.

Programs for beginners usually last eight weeks and cost less that $100. However, they don’t provide any guidance on nutrition, weight loss, injury prevention, or other aspects of boxing training.

Advanced programs typically last six months and cost around $300. They may include nutritional advice, stretching, warm-up exercises and instruction on proper technique. In addition, some programs incorporate resistance training (such as lifting weights) and aerobic conditioning (such as running).
