Five opponents for KSI's next fight including Tommy Fury, Jake Paul and former UFC star after controversial Fournier KO | The Sun

THE influencer boxing world is waiting with bated breath for KSI's next move following his controversial win over Joe Fournier.

The YouTube sensation stayed unbeaten on Saturday night with a second-round knockout of the self-proclaimed billionaire at the Wembley Arena.

But replays showed The Nightmare laid out Fournier with an illegal elbow – which is reportedly set to be investigated.

Despite the cloud hanging over his latest win, KSI is looking forward, not backwards.

And with that in mind, SunSport thought it'd only be right to run through the five men in contention to face the Brit next.

Tommy Fury

The seed for a showdown with the former Love Island star was planted several weeks before KSI threw down with Fournier.

And the interest in seeing the social media celebs trade blows is now sky-high following their post-fight face-off and near scuffle.

It may not end up being the most technical of fights, but a KSI vs Fury bout will no doubt be a box office smash.


Jake Paul

KSI's rivalry with fellow YouTuber turned boxer Paul has stretched back the best part of five years.

The pair have repeatedly traded verbal jabs and took part in a fiery face-off in 2020 after Paul's stoppage win over AnEson Gib.

Fans of the duo are desperate to see them trade blows – although Paul wants to fry bigger fish after his August showdown with former UFC star Nate Diaz.

Anthony Taylor

Former Bellator fighter Taylor has made quite the splash in the influence boxing world – locking horns with ex-Love Islanders Fury and Idris Virgo.

'Pretty Boy' has become one of Misfits Boxing's go-to fighters to fill their cards and they could very well pivot to him should KSI struggle to land an opponent.

Tyron Woodley

Former UFC welterweight champion Woodley could be a shock opponent for KSI should bouts with Fury and Paul fail to come to fruition.

The duo have gone back and forth with each other on social media over the last year – with KSI repeatedly mocking The Chosen One's knockout loss to Paul.

Woodley has gone 0-2 in his post-MMA boxing career and would no doubt jump at the opportunity to get his hands on KSI and try to pick up his first win in the sport.

Joe Fournier

Given the illegal manner in which their fight ended, a rematch with KSI and Fournier makes the most sense.

KSI may deny finishing the fight with an elbow, but he can't escape the clear fact he landed an illegal blow.

The honourable thing for him to do would be to acknowledge the accidental strike and run it back with Fournier.

But that seems unlikely now that he's got a big money fight with Fury in the palms of his hands.
