JAKE PAUL accused KSI of challenging him to “everything except an actual fight” as the YouTube rivals engaged in a Twitter feud.
KSI is set to return to the ring on August 27, two weeks before Paul was scheduled to fight next.
But the American has instead confirmed his comeback will come on August 6 in New York – three weeks BEFORE KSI does battle.
The announcement came after he got involved in a war-of-words with online rival KSI – real name Olajide Olayinka Williams Olatunji.
KSI, 28, tweeted: “You should fight on your own card on the 27th of August, so we can see who can get the most PPV’s.
“Especially since you might not even be fighting on the 13th anymore lmao. We can then see who has the real power.”

KSI hit back: “That will come soon brother, just need to let you and all of your fanboys know why I’m the A-side.”
The British celebrity has boxed three times before, firstly beating Joe Weller, 26, in 2018.

The same year he drew against Paul’s brother Logan, 27, before winning their rematch a year later by split-decision.
The former opponents are now business partners, owning sports drink Prime together.
But younger brother Paul is still very much embroiled in a rivalry with KSI which could lead to a future grudge match.
