KSI underwent an incredible body transformation in 2022 before his return to the ring, against Alex Wassabi, on August 27.
The YouTuber, whose real name is Olajide Olayinka Williams “JJ” Olatunji, is returning to the sport for the first time since beating Logan Paul in 2019 in his professional debut, but not his first boxing experience.
KSI first entered the boxing ring four years ago to take on Joe Weller in a white collar contest.
His second fight later that year was an amateur draw with Paul, who went the six round distance. When they met again in their rematch, both men agreed to enter the professional ranks.
KSI won that fight via split decision in America and hasn’t boxed since.
The 29-year-old entered the year in poor form but after months of preparation for his next fight at London’s O2 Arena, he is now in the best shape of his life.
Posting a video of his body on Instagram, he claimed that TikTok wouldn’t allow him to post it.
“TikTok’s age limited my video because it mistook my chest for boobs. So I’ll just post it here,” he wrote alongside a clip that showed a comparison of him in January and now.

Just two hours after his post, the social media celeb has already garnered over 500,000 likes from the likes of influencer Chunkz, former footballer Adebayo Akinfenwa and British MMA fighter Darren Stewart.
However, he will be very happy to see UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou give his approval to the body transformation as he is arguably the craziest man in combat sports.
KSI is enjoying a few weeks after it was recently announced that he and Logan Paul have joined forces with Arsenal on a new hydration deal.
The Gunners have announced PRIME, founded by KSI and Paul, as the club’s new official drink, replacing Gatorade.
Speaking to Arsenal’s website about the deal, KSI said: “I honestly can’t believe it, it’s been a dream of mine as a kid.
“From seeing Arsenal tearing apart the Premier League in the early 2000s to now being officially associated with Arsenal with PRIME is a dream come true and I still pinch myself!
“It’s a huge moment and I’m so happy it’s with the team I support.”
