KSI accuses Jake Paul of 'DUCKING' fight after being sent contract as his manager says Wembley is booked for grudge bout | The Sun

KSI has accused Jake Paul of "DUCKING" him after his manager booked Wembley to host their grudge match.

The bitter YouTube rivals are yet to settle their score in the ring despite talks to so this year.

KSI had wanted to fight Paul at the end of 2023 but those plans took a hit after the American's loss to Tommy Fury.

It has left the British social media, music and crossover boxing star to hit out at his great nemesis.

KSI said in a Twitter Space: "They look like they just want to do the rematch or they want to look for another opponent.

"It doesn't seem like they are keen to fight me any time soon, which is funny because he was the guy who said I was ducking.

"But, I'm not ducking anyone, man. I've literally told everyone the reason why I came back into boxing was to fight Jake Paul.

"And now he doesn't want to fight me."

KSI, 29, beat Paul's brother Logan, 27, in their 2019 rematch after drawing a year beforehand.

And although the two are now business partners with hydration drink Prime, the bad blood is still brewing with brother Jake.

KSI has won three times since returning to the ring but Paul, 26, was recently beaten in Saudi Arabia on points by Fury, 23.

It looks to have put a dent in KSI's hopes of facing the self-proclaimed Problem Child this year.

His manager Mams Taylor claimed talks were going back and forth with Paul's team with Wembley even booked for the fight.

Taylor said: "Jake has the contract. It's not in our hands.

"We redlined it, sent it back to him, he redlined it, sent it back to us, we redlined it, sent it back to him.

"And now the ball's in his court but I did get a call from Jake's team saying, 'Hey, Jake's not going to fight KSI in the summer,' like we wanted.

"Because, he's some excuses, whatever. Basically he doesn't want to fight KSI, he wants to fight other people.

"So, all that s*** about, 'I'll fight him tomorrow,' and all that stuff, well we booked Wembley Stadium, we were ready and he's the one that backed out."
