KSI believes Ben was not even trying to fight

KSI’s lasting outing has already made him a prime opponent that Jake could face in the upcoming days. He took up the matter on his video and offered his reaction to Jake’s dominant victory over the top-rated wrestler.

” Don’t get me wrong, Jake hit him hard and dropped him. But it just felt like Ben wasn’t even trying. He literally looked and acted like a journeyman, coming in to just get his paycheck. I mean, my man was laughing after he got knocked down. Like look, what’s going on, he is smiling with his Mrs, literally laughing to the bank.”

Fans called for KSI to put on the gloves once again, as he already holds a victory over Jake’s older brother Logan Paul. He also stated that Jake’s opponent was not very good in boxing, as Ben excels as a wrestler only.
