KSI's battle against Alex Wassabi has ended and Jake Paul is available to step in
Lucky for Paul, he was supposed to return two days earlier, but his fight with Hasim Rahman Jr. was cancelled.
The social media star-turned-boxer offered to help and make sure that KSI and KSI could fight.
Paul accepted a deal that paid him nothing and requested that a contract be sent.
He tweeted: "My manager just said to me KSI was down, but only if he fights me for free and he keeps the revenue."
"That's what they offered... I said hurry up and send me a contract."
Paul, 25 years old, was originally scheduled to meet Tommy Fury (23 year-old), but the British ex Love Islander was denied entry due to a visa issue in the USA.
Before Rahman, 31, was replaced, KSI offered Paul the opportunity to fight Fury undercard.
He also referred to this in his reply to Paul, appearing not to be too enthusiastic about the possibility of them fighting in a short time.
KSI tweeted "You and MVP" First Tommy, Rahman, and now Wassabi.
"Even if you put on events, all you do it lie to your fans and increase your numbers by 50 percent.
"We are privy to your transactions with each promotion and what you make. It's a joke.
"The industry now knows that you are not what you portray yourself to be.
"Your stock is down badly and you don’t get to dictate what shit I do, mate. We knew you would pull something similar.
"Plus, you'll likely try to pull some shit and cause our event to cancel too much like your flop event.
"You tried drain Rahman so that he would have no life left when he fought with you using the rehydration clause.
"You fought a man just out of hip surgery. With just three weeks notice, you fought and defeated a Woodley who was well past his prime.
"You made Gib fight at weight you knew he would struggle with in such a short time.
The list goes on. "All of that isn't going to work for me, fam."
Paul responded: "You're deflecting!!! Hahahahaha. Tommy's team didn't respond to my request to make the fight happen. !
"They have not responded. STOP DEFLECTING !"
