Professional boxer Jake Paul backed out of KSI fight or what we call a planned summer bout.
For years now fans of the two YouTube stars have been waiting for both to touch gloves and it seemed like the day was almost here after they mutually agreed to fight in 2023.
After Jake's recent loss to Tommy Fury claiming the former is being long with negotiations, KSI might shift his focus to fight Fury instead.
Now the British YouTuber's manager explained Jake has surrendered to face-off KSI this summer, while others reporting he turned down a contract.
In a recent Twitter space, KSI was accused by one fan of dodging Jake , where then his manager Mams Taylor shed light on how Jake is the one holding up all the negotiations.
"Jake has the contract. It’s not in our hands, We redlined it and 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."
Mams then followed up revealing that he got a call from Jake's team who told him that Jake is not looking to fight KSI, this summer.
"I did get a call from Jake’s team saying, hey, Jake doesn’t want to fight KSI in summer like we wanted because of some excuses. Whatever. Basically, he doesn’t want to fight KSI. He wants to fight other people."
He continued, "We booked Wembley stadium, we were ready, and he’s backed out."
Furthermore, an interviewer Fred Beck also confirmed that a contract was sent to Jake two weeks ago, which he declined .
"Jake Paul was sent a contract to fight KSI by Mams Taylor two weeks ago. All material terms were agreed, but Jake Paul has declined."
Jake's Most Valuable Promotions has since disputed the claims, "Who at MVP did you check this with before tweeting it like it’s a fact?"
