He said on The MMA Hour: “If it’s a no-contest, fine.

“I’ll be p****d if it’s a disqualification, because I didn’t intentionally try to hit him with my forearm or my elbow or whatever.

“Like, I came through with a right hook to try and knock him out while he was coming in to clinch me, because I knew he was going to scramble to save his life after I hit him with an overhand.

“At least now Joe Fournier doesn’t look like a loser. He can be like, ‘Ah, because of the whole no-contest, it doesn’t really count.’ Even though I was all over him, but yeah.”

“They’re like, ‘Alright, cool. Let’s see how you do against Tommy Fury. If you delete him, then fine, you’re the GOAT, and then we’ll never say a bad word again.’

“But right now it’s like, they want to see me get tested.”

KSI has set his sights on fighting Fury next, following his win over Paul by split-decision in Saudi Arabia in February.

It came after the American instead chose to return against ex-UFC star Nate Diaz, 38, on August 5 in Texas.

KSI – returned to boxing to fight Paul – is ready to face Fury next instead of rematching Fournier.

He said: “I’m at peace with a no-contest. I don’t really mind because, for me, I’m a fair guy. If it is a no-contest, it’s a no-contest.

“It is what it is. I don’t need a win. For me, the reason I came back was to knock out Jake Paul.
