JJ is one of the most prominent/influential celebrities on the internet today. From content creation to entrepreneurial ventures, JJ has established himself in various fields. The one that he is currently shining in is boxing. And every fan knows that his main goal at the moment is to have a fight with his biggest foe, Jake Paul. The star has considered this to be one of the biggest fights in this category of boxing.

So, when Wade Plem stated that a Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury rematch would sell more tickets than KSI vs Jake Paul, it infuriated JJ. Wade did not out of the blue stated these comments. When Jake stated that a rematch with Tommy Fury has more potential to garner larger ticket numbers, Wade felt at the moment that is a huge possibility.

But this statement led to a fight between KSI and Wade, and reportedly the sports commentator was removed from the Misfits panel following the turmoil.

A few people on Twitter came forward posting a supposedly deleted post by KSI that shows the star ranting against Wade Plem. These deleted Tweets were pointing toward some harsh statements that KSI said about Wade. He was seen calling the commentator ‘fake’ and ‘snake’ in these posts.

Following these statements by KSI, Jake Paul tweeted in support of Wade. Jake was calling KSI ‘insecure’, adding further spice to their hatred for each other.

KSI later released a statement justifying his statements and admitting that he did so in a fit of anger.
