KSI has shown he means business ahead of his rematch with Logan Paul after footage emerged of him brutally knocking down a sparring partner.
The YouTuber has been training in Las Vegas ahead of his first professional fight, which will take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California on November 9 and judging by his preparation he looks hell bent on making a statement.
In a video released by the Mayweather Channel, Watford-born KSI, softens up his opponent with a four-punch combination. He starts with a right to the body, before landing an uppercut and then a left/right, before the session is brought to a close.
Wearing Arsenal’s ‘Bruised Banana’ away kit, KSI, 26, paces around the ring, as his sparring partner is checked over by ringside trainers.

Former super featherweight world champion and uncle to boxing legend Floyd Mayweather, Jeff was impressed with what he saw.
“Great work,” he tells the camera. “The kind of work we need before the fight.
“Going into the fight, you need to feel confident about what you’re doing so this is perfect moving forward.”
While KSI and Paul could not be separated in their first fight in August 2018, their six-round white collar bout ended a draw, the Brit has vowed to get the job done second time around.
“November 9th I’m knocking him out by round five. There’s nothing he can do about it,” KSI told talkSPORT’s Gareth A Davis.
“He can lift as many logs or trees or tyres as he wants. He’s getting finished.
“I don’t know what he’s going to be doing, I don’t care… I do not like Logan.”
The fight is being promoted by Matchroom chief Eddie Hearn and will be streamed on DAZN.
It will also be shown live on Sky Sports Box Office pay-per-view in the UK for a price of £9.95.
