KSI has undergone an amazing body transformation in 2022 ahead of his return to the boxing ring, against Alex Wassabi, on August 27.
The YouTuber, whose real name is Olajide Olayinka Williams “JJ” Olatunji, is returning to the sport for the first time since beating Logan Paul in 2019 in what was his professional debut, but not his first boxing experience.
KSI first stepped into the boxing ring four years ago to take on Joe Weller in a white-collar contest.
His second bout later that year was an amateur draw with Paul, which went the six-round distance. When they met again in their rematch, the pair agreed to step into the professional ranks.
KSI won this fight by split decision in America and has not boxed since.
The 29-year-old entered the year out of shape but after several months of preparing for his upcoming fight at the O2 Arena in London, he’s now in the best shape of his life.
Posting a video of his body on Instagram, he claimed TikTok didn’t allow him to post it.
“TikTok age restricted my video because it mistook my chest for tits. So imma just post it here,” he wrote alongside a clip that showed a comparison of him in January and now.

Just two hours after his post, the social media celebrity has already got more than 500,000 likes from people such as influencer Chunkz, former footballer Adebayo Akinfenwa, and British MMA fighter Darren Stewart.
However, he’ll be most pleased to see UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou gave his seal of approval to the body transformation, as he’s arguably the most jacked man in combat sports.
KSI is enjoying a great couple of weeks after it was recently announced he and Logan Paul have teamed up with Arsenal in a new hydration deal.
The Gunners announced PRIME, founded by KSI and Paul, as the club’s new official drink, replacing Gatorade.
Speaking to the Arsenal website about the deal, KSI said: “Honestly, I can’t believe it, this is a childhood dream of mine.
“From watching Arsenal tear up the Premier League in the early 2000s to now being associated with Arsenal officially with PRIME, it’s a dream come true and I’m still pinching myself!
“This is a huge moment and I’m so glad it’s with the team I support.”
