KSI is returning to the ring following his recent win against Faze Temper, who stepped in after KSI’s original opponent Dillon Danis dropped out of the contest a few weeks prior.
The Sidemen co-founder will take on professional boxer Joe Fournier in London this May and his recent comments have proved he is feeling confident about the outcome.
Fournier is 9-0 as a pro fighter, having knocked out all of his nine opponents. He once went the distance with former heavyweight world champion David Haye.

Despite his slight weight disadvantage, Fournier does have the upper hand in terms of experience.
