KSI accused of ‘copying Mike Tyson’ as he performs ‘exorcism’ neck training

KSI has been accused of copying a viral video of Mike Tyson after he showed off a very similar neck training routine.

The YouTuber took part in an open workout yesterday (May 10) ahead of his fight against Joe Fournier this weekend. All eyes were on him as he took to the ring.

And both those in attendance and fans watching on at home were shocked when he started performing neck bridges, a technique made famous by Tyson. A clip of the boxing legend recently resurfaced on social media.

So fans were all left saying the same thing about KSI. "Just copying Tyson," wrote one, before a second echoed: "Bro saw the Mike Tyson video and tried copying it."

A third commented: "Mike Tyson did exactly this, but a little more extreme." And a fourth joked: "I thought I was watching the exorcist for a second there."

Do you think KSI will beat Fournier? Let us know in the comments section.

A fifth slammed: "This guy man. He's doing this because Tyson did this 30 years ago. We all know now that this is a one-way street to a compressed spine, but KSI here wants to look like he knows what he's doing."

While a sixth warned: "I wouldn't do this, Mike Tyson is famous for this and said it messed his neck up."

Tyson grew his neck to a mega 20 inches by the age of 18 thanks to the neck rolls, but he later admitted regret at the relentless routine.

Appearing on the Joe Rogan Experience in 2020, he said: "Remember when I used to do those rolls on my head? They destroyed me.

"I would do them for three minutes and then stop a minute. I'd do it for five or six or eight rounds."
