KSI has confirmed he will finally make his long-awaited return to the boxing ring this summer.
The YouTuber, rapper and 1-0 boxer is set to return to the sport for the first time since his win over Logan Paul in 2019.
KSI will be 29 years old when he steps into the ring again, over four years on from his first white collar contest against Joe Weller.
His second bout later that year was a white collar draw with Logan 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.
KSI vs Alex Wassabi: Date and how to follow
The event is set to take place on Saturday, August 27, at the 02 Arena in London.
KSI has made it clear that his long-term goal is to beat Jake Paul but he first must get past Alex Wassabi, who beat his brother Deji in March.
On Thursday night, the Spanish version of DAZN’s website revealed that KSI has signed a new broadcast partnership deal with them.
DAZN costs £7.99 to subscribe to in the UK, but the streaming service are likely to add a pay-per-view arm to their model this year.

KSI vs Alex Wassabi: What has been said?
KSI has offered Jake Paul the chance to save his fight with Tommy Fury by fighting on his UK card in the co-main event.
Fury was set to fly out to America on Monday to attend the pair’s first press conference but was prevented from doing so, just days after his brother, Tyson, was banned from entering the US.
KSI then tweeted to Paul: “Clearly your card is dead in the water at this point. So lemme give you a lifeline.
“If you TRULY want to fight Tommy, fight on my card as the co main event. I’ve got everything set up for you.
“Best believe you owe me though. Ball is in your court.”
