KSI’s fight against Alex Wassabi is now in doubt after the YouTube star picked up an injury.
The bout between the two is due to take place on August 27, but an injury to Wassabi has thrown the fight into doubt.
According to American YouTuber ‘Keemstar’, who hosts the YouTube news channel DramaAlert, Wassabi has picked up an injury in training.
He said: “Ladies and gentleman, this is breaking news. Wassabi is injured.
“Now I’ve heard two different injuries, I’ve heard concussions, I’ve heard a broken hand. It’s coming from a source from close to Wassabi’s camp.
“I have another source close to Wassabi’s camp. This is what is happening right now. I have double checked, I have crossed my t’s, dotted my i’s on this.
“Wassabi is injured. And there is a fear right now that he won’t be fighting KSI on August 27.”
British YouTuber and Musician KSI has not fought in the boxing ring since beating Logan Paul in 2019, and the pair now sponsor Arsenal with their drink PRIME.
Wassabi meanwhile, beat KSI’s younger brother Deji in March of this year.
Despite Wassabi’s potential injury, KSI will still fight on the day due to a replacement having already been lined up.

Keemstar added: “Will the event be cancelled? No.
“I can tell you for a fact the event will not be cancelled, though, because I talked to Misfits Boxing (the event organisers) months ago, and they’ve always said if someone pulls out of the fight they will be replaced.
“So I don’t think August 27 has any chance of ever being cancelled. But there is a chance we won’t see Alex Wassabi.”
KSI, 28, has undergone a stunning body transformation ahead of the fight, showing off a shredded figure in a post on social media.
And shortly before the revelation KSI posted a cryptic message on his Twitter, saying: “Life is so funny sometimes,” followed by a plethora of laughing emojis.
Jake Paul, who is rumoured to be in discussions to fight controversial figure Andrew Tate and Logan’s younger brother, followed this up by tweeting: “HAHAHHAHAHAHA KARMAS A B****”.
