KSI calls Logan Paul’s boxing workout "pretty standard"
Even with the help of former heavyweight champion Shannon Briggs, Logan Paul’s workout regime isn’t scaring, or even impressing KSI.
KSI vs Logan Paul 2 is just a few weeks away and both entertainers are working hard to shift their definition from ‘YouTuber’ to ‘professional fighter’. According to KSI himself however, Paul’s workout routine and endurance is nothing more than “pretty standard”.
There’s little which is standard about Paul’s supposed workout schedule. The man himself explains that he not only eats 36kg of food per day, but he also drinks the blood of cows. The 24-year old is also getting the help of Shannon Briggs, former heavyweight boxing champion and veteran of the sport.
Love it or hate it they are putting in that work! @loganpaul in great shape at the open workout in LA yesterday - 17 days to go! #ksiloganpaul2 @dazn_usa @skysportsboxing @staplescenterla pic.twitter.com/b7KoPtSVYd— Eddie Hearn (@EddieHearn) October 23, 2019
Footage of Paul’s training alongside Briggs shows the man working for 20-minutes non-stop, boxing, skipping, sparring, you name it. Sport Bible reveals that KSI wasn’t impressed with this showing, saying that he expected more from his American opponent.
"It was pretty standard, I probably expected more from him." KSI said after watching the workout. “He was skipping for five-10 minutes and he just looked knackered.”
"The jabs were weak, his hand positions were all over the place. There's a lot to decipher from that and compared to mine, he's finished.”
KSI did however praise Paul, who is apparently aspiring towards MMA, for his physique. "He looks really good, big, bulky and heavy. I'm sure that's going to do well for him over six rounds..."
Paul is far more public and vocal on his preparation for the boxing rematch, continuously sharing images and saying how he’s now a professional fighter. KSI however doesn’t release many details on how his training is going. Most recently he shared a training video where he did some boxing drills with Anthony Joshua, another former heavyweight champ.
The pair are set to rematch in L.A.’s Staples Center on November 9. Their previous match resulted in a draw under an amateur ruleset. The rematch however will be played under a professional ruleset with no headgear and is even being streamed on DAZN – a dedicating sporting streaming service.
