KSI had opened the door to fighting Hafthor Bjornsson
Hafthor Bjornsson is 6ft 9in and weighs over 23st
And so too is Bjornsson – who played The Mountain on Game of Thrones – most recently beating strongman rival Eddie Hall.
The “heaviest boxing match in history” was discussed by KSI, 28, and his ‘Sidemen’ group.
Asked if he could beat Bjornsson, KSI responded: “Yes. Bro, he’d be slow. Obviously, if he catches me, yeah it’s long.”
He continued: “You’d have to be in and out, in and out, in and out.
“It’s one of those things, because he’s so slow, you’d just get out the way. And while he’s recharging to strike again you can hit him.”
KSI – real name Olajide Olayinka Williams Olatunji – first boxed in a 2018 exhibition beating Joe Weller, 26.
He then drew in a similar bout with Paul’s brother Logan, 26, but won the rematch a year later on points when they turned professional.
KSI is yet to return since the 2019 win but is rumoured to be in line for a summer comeback.

The Londoner last fought at 193lb (13st 7lb) making 23st 9lb Bjornsson, 33, not far from being TWICE his size – but he still backed his chances.
KSI said: “He’s almost double my weight. Because of the speed. Alright, Canelo or Thor?”
He added: “It does take one bang but it’s if you land that one bang.”
