Taylor, who recently revealed a potential April 1st Floyd Mayweather fight, while drinking Prime heckled KSI, saying, “I got you next!” However, KSI, who barely wanted to pay Taylor any attention before his upcoming fight on January 14, warned Taylor with a reference to Idris.

“You can shut the f*ck up. You ain’t getting past Idris. Idris is sleeping you,” said KSI, addressing Anthony Taylor, who was heckling him. KSI is still unbeaten in the ring, and will definitely be a crowd favourite against FaZe Temperrr on January 14. While KSI is yet to concede a loss, Anthony Taylor has already suffered more losses than wins in boxing. Yet, Taylor lately spoke about an ‘Old money and New money’ fight against none other than ‘TBE’.

Anthony Taylor, who heckled KSI, has plans to fight Floyd Mayweather in the ring

Anthony Taylor is well-known for being a sparring partner of ‘The Problem Child’. In a recent interview with IFL TV, Taylor suggested that he will very likely fight Floyd Mayweather on the 1st of April, 2023. “He’s old money, I’m new money. We’re looking for this fight to actually happen I believe [on] April 1st. In California or at the Coca-Cola Arena. April 1st, and like I said it’s exclusive. Floyd Mayweather said he wants to fight me,” Taylor informed by saying.

Although Mayweather did not confirm any ongoing negotiations with Anthony Taylor on the 1st of April, he confirmed his return to the UK in February. Hopefully, Mayweather will soon shed light on Taylor’s call for a fight. What do you make of KSI’s fresh remarks on Anthony Taylor ahead of his fight on January 14?
