KSI starts crude Jake Paul chant at Wembley as he confirms return to boxing
YouTube sensation KSI has reignited his long-standing feud with Jake Paul after getting Wembley Stadium to sing a rude chant about him over the weekend.
The 28-year-old, whose real name is Olajide Olatunji, was performing at the Capital FM Summertime Ball in front of 80,000 fans at the national ground, and managed to get most of them chanting "f*** Jake Paul".
Like Jake and his brother Logan Paul, KSI gained massive notoriety on YouTube before dabbling in boxing. His rivalry with them began in 2018 after defeating fellow YouTuber Joe Weller boxing in his debut. After the bout, he called out both brothers before going onto fight Logan that August, with Jake facing KSI's younger brother Deji.
The bout between KSI and Logan ended in a majority draw, but the pair fought again in 2019 – this time under professional rules – with the Brit securing a narrow split decision victory.
Since then, KSI has been focusing primarily on his burgeoning rap career, but with Jake now an accomplished fighter with five wins under his belt, fans are pushing for the two to face each other.

To further stoke the flames, KSI helped launch a boxing promotion last year and announced that he'll be returning to the ring for the company's first event this August.
In preparation for the fight, which is rumoured to be against influencer Alex Wassabi, KSI has been hitting the gym hard and has got himself back into boxing shape following two-and-a-half years away from the ring.
He also pledged to "f*** Jake Paul up" when he gets the chance, but whether Paul would want to take the fight is another question, especially with a high-profile bout against Tyson Fury's brother Tommy in the works.
