YOUTUBER turned boxer KSI has called out Conor McGregor but wants to face rival Jake Paul first.
The Brit returns to the ring at the weekend to face fellow internet star FaZe Temperrr after initial opponent Dillon Danis withdrew.
KSI has his sights set on facing Paul later this year and he will need to win at Wembley Arena to help the likelihood of a future bout against the American.
The 29-year-old has plans that involve beating Paul and then taking on UFC star McGregor.
KSI told MMA Fighting: “After I flatline Jake, how cool would it be to have a go at the king?”
McGregor has interacted with the Sidemen member before, jumping in on his social media spat with Danis, who rose to fame as he trained with the Irishman.
The MMA legend referred to KSI as a “friendly little nerd.”
Paul has often called out McGregor, but he has never got a response.
KSI found it hilarious that he got a retaliation and his enemy hasn’t, adding: “I was gassed, I was like ‘oh, rah, Conor tweeted at me?’
“Jake has been on Conor’s a*** but Conor’s said nothing.
“I mentioned Conor once and he fired back, I was like ‘I’ve got the sauce like that.'”
KSI will be aiming to continue his unbeaten run in the ring that includes five bouts across amateur, exhibition and professional level.
He has not fought since August last year when he knocked out Swarmz and Luis Pineda on one night.
Meanwhile, McGregor has not been in action since sustaining a broken leg in his loss to Dustin Poirier in July 2021.
As for Paul, he has been busy trying to organise a fight with Tommy Fury, while also finding time to argue with KSI in a heated Twitter Live row.
