Alex Wassabi has suffered an injury and is out of his fight with KSI on August 27.

The pair were due to meet at London’s O2 Arena in three weeks’ time, however on Friday night social media was gripped by rumours that the bout is now in jeopardy.

YouTube reporter KEEMSTAR – who accurately first broke the Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury injury news late last year – reported that Wassabi could be out of the fight.

In a video posted on Friday night, KEEMSTAR said: “Ladies and gentlemen, this is breaking news – Wassabi is injured.

“It’s coming from a source from close to Wassabi’s camp.

“I have double checked, crossed by Ts, dotted my Is on this – Wassabi is injured and there is a fear right now that he won’t be fighting KSI on August 27.

“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 months ago and Misfits Boxing has always said if someone pulls out of the fight, they will be replaced.”

As yet, this is all unconfirmed with no announcement from KSI’s promotional company Misfits Boxing or broadcaster DAZN.

However, Jake Paul – who represents Wassabi via his Most Valuable Promotions company – has spoken out to confirm the news himself.

Jake tweeted: “Heard that Alex is out because of a concussion.

“F***ed up. This was a big opportunity for Alex. He will be back.

“KSI… everything happens for a reason.

“I’ll come fight in your hometown. Your boxing company. You are A-Side.

“I also agree to make 180 pounds for August 27. You accept?
