What has KSI said about the fight?

Speaking to the press ahead of the fight KSI said: “I mentioned at the press Conference that Dillon was being haunted by me. He made his excuses and knew he couldn’t handle what I bring to a boxing ring. This answers the quesiton whether he’s a fighter or not. He’s a warrior alright, a keyboard warrior, and hopefully he’s learnt to leave the real men to speak with their actions rather than hollow words.

“That being said, my focus won’t be distracted from the task at hand and that’s FaZe Temperrr. We’ve come head-to-head plenty of times with the Sidemen and FaZe clan competing against each other, and it looks like we have a another challenge on our hands. Credit to Temper for stepping up like a real fighter.”

FaZe Temperrr added: “I showed exactly what I can do in my last fight. At any moment in the fight, I can catch my opponent and you can see how they respond when that happens. The Sideman have been on top for too long, and it’s time for FaZe and I to show them exactly what we’re made of. Sure, KSI is a huge name, but only one man is going to come out of this victorious. I hope he’s as prepared as he says he is, because I’m coming to London to do one thing, and that’s claim a massive win inside that ring.”
