Morning Report: KSI revels in Jake Paul’s loss to Tommy Fury: ‘I stay winning!’

After this weekend, KSI appears to be on top of the world.

On Sunday, Jake Paul suffered the first defeat of his boxing career, losing a competitive split decision to Tommy Fury in their long-awaited grudge match. Though Paul did score a knockdown in the final round, he struggled to deal with the jab and combinations of Fury for much of the fight, and in general struggled to get consistent offense going. And no one was happier about this than KSI.

Tweeting during the bout and then after the official decision was announced, the British YouTuber engaged in some good, old-fashioned schadenfreude at Paul’s expense, mocking Paul’s performance and claiming he’d make short work of his fellow YouTube boxer.

“Hey, yo! [Mimics smoking] Ah! Don’t mind me, just smoking on that Jake Paul pack! Honestly, Jake Paul, trash! Tommy Fury, trash! [Cackling laughter]”

As the two most prominent names in the “Influencer Boxing” scene, KSI has been pursuing a fight with Paul for some time, calling Paul “a fraud” and saying he wanted to be the one to expose “The Problem Child.” Paul, meanwhile, previously said he’s losing interest in the bout because KSI has yet to beat anyone with any combat sports experience at all, instead knocking out fellow influencers. And that interest has waned even more following his loss, as Paul said he intends to exercise his rematch clause immediately for another shot at Fury.

The timeline still could work out though, as KSI previously said he wants to face Paul in December in Cardiff Stadium. Before then he will have his own hurdles to get past as he’s targeting a May boxing match against either Tyron Woodley or Joe Fournier, either of whom would be a step up in competition for him. In the meantime though, KSI seems content to simply enjoy Tommy Fury’s great victory.

“Jake! You see, the problem with you, man, the reason why you lost, is because you weren’t drinking Prime, baby. [Cackling laughter] I stay winning! I stay winning, b****!”
