IShowSpeed has again challenged KSI to a duel, and fans are hoping it to be true this time. 

On January 21, 2023, YouTuber IShowSpeed celebrated his birthday alongside Adin Ross. The former hosted a special stream, inviting thousands of fans. It was one of the biggest days in Speed’s life as he featured multiple snippets that became headlines. For instance, he asked out the underdog rapper Ice Spice on a date, which was a rare sight to watch. After all, all Speed fans know his relationship with girls, so this wasn’t something they expected.

 Plus, Adin Ross took the spotlight after he gifted Speed a life-size Ronaldo statue and a signed ball. However, there was a certain bit in the stream that stomped over moment as it featured the ‘Sidemen Star,’ KSI.

Here’s what he said, “You want to fight they fight anything. you want to sleep bro, let’s fight I’m ready bro. I promise you I will beat you, but I will beat your a** bro.” Speed then also got up to show his moves only to get turned down by KSI. “Bro what is this man you look like you’re handicapped,” JJ gasped. This somehow angered Speed, as his further statements felt like he was hurt. After all, he jumped too much into the topic, claiming to book a venue, sell tickets, and have an actual fight.
