KSI still wants to take on Jake Paul in “the blockbuster fight of crossover boxing” with promoter Kalle Sauerland saying a clash between the YouTubers “would fill any stadium in the world.”

Paul suffered a split-decision loss to Tommy Fury in Saudi Arabia on Sunday night but did knock his opponent down in the eighth and final round.

KSI’s promoter Sauerland, of Wasserman Boxing, told Sky Sports that he has “no reason” to believe Paul does not want to face KSI and expects the two to meet this year.

Londoner KSI beat Jake’s brother Logan in a six-round professional bout in Los Angeles in November 2019.

Sauerland said of a potential KSI-Jake Paul clash: “Regardless of [Sunday night], it’s still the blockbuster fight of crossover boxing.

“It’s a fight I expect to take place. We’ve been in discussions before Sunday and we’ll see what happens now with the situation of the rematch.

“But KSI and our side have made it very clear we want that fight and I have no reason to believe that Jake Paul and his team don’t want that fight either.

“It’s a fight that will fill any stadium in the world, and a fight that I do believe will happen this year.”

Speaking after his split-decision loss to Fury, Jake Paul said: “I have a lot of room to grow and improve and that is what I will be doing.
