Talking about his rift with celebrity boxers, the only name that comes to everyone’s mind is KSI. Until now, both Paul and KSI have gone all out against each other with their verbal blows. However, ‘The Problem Child’ recently spoke about concluding his beef and a possible fight with the British YouTuber.

Speaking to Mike Majlak, he said, “I think I’m done, bro. He needs me more. Like I’m getting paid more like multiple 8 figures for fights. And he’s like coming in and wants like $3 million-$4 million. That’s like 2 years ago. And he’s afraid, let’s be honest, he understands. He admitted on his videos that I’m a better boxer.”
