The ad stated that their match would occur on January 14, 2023, which coincided with when fans anticipated that the YouTuber would reveal his “PRIME” card.

Is KSI vs. Joe Fournier battle gonna happen?
Olajide Olayinka, better known publicly as KSI, has a promising future in the boxing ring. KSI presently has a 3-0 streak and is undefeated, which is extremely uncommon for newbies. He punches fairly hard and boasts an astounding 67% knockout ratio.
KSI has demonstrated that he is a worthy opponent in the ring because of his inherent talents and dedication.
Fans are always anticipating his bouts for this reason. Mams Taylor, the manager of KSI, responded to a fan’s post from his official Twitter account on October 7. If the rumors were real and if KSI was actually going to face Joe, the fan had inquired.
Mams responded, “If the people wanted it, why not,” implying that there is a chance the matchup will actually take place if there is enough support for it. However, KSI may anticipate some challenging times in the future if there is even a remote chance that this fight will actually take place.
Joe Fournier, who could be his rival, is not an easy opponent. Joe has established a solid reputation for himself by triumphing in all nine with Knockout. However, KSI is not lightweight. He fought Swarmz this year and won with a round-two technical knockout. Even a skilled fighter like Joe may find it difficult to overcome his undefeated record and innate talent.

If ksi beats joe fournier an actual pro boxer who would give ksi a hard fight then that changes this whole jake beats ksi story it would now be the other way around ksi beats jake
JOE would beat Jake right now. KSI is an idiot if he picks Joe. He is way way tougher than woodley as a boxing opponent. Man this match should be mid next year after 1 more. Joe went the distance with a retired world champ boxer. Not b baller or retired old smaller wrestler.
