KSI takes on arguably his toughest opponent to date, Joe Fournier, when he returns to the ring at OVO Arena, Wembley on 13th May.
The YouTuber has been at the forefront of celebrity crossover boxing after taking on Joe Weller and Logan Paul in amateur bouts in 2018.
Interest has continued to grow during the interim and KSI has featured in three exhibition contests and also faced Logan Paul in a professional bout, winning by split decision in 2019.
KSI is yet to taste defeat across exhibition, amateur or professional trips to the ring but Fournier looks set to offer a very stern test.
Fournier took up professional boxing in 2015 and was signed by Hayemaker Promotions - a company operated by former WBA heavyweight and undisputed cruiserweight champion David Haye.
He won nine of his 10 fights inside the distance, but was forced to retire from boxing due to a scaphoid injury and moved into business.
The 40-year-old also met Haye in an exhibition contest in September 2021, losing by unanimous decision after eight rounds.
KSI has made no secret of his desire to take on Jake Paul in the future but he'll need to overcome this Fournier-shaped obstacle first.

No official belts are on the line for this exhibition bout but KSI will be defending the MF cruiserweight title.
KSI has fought on six occasions but has just one professional contest on his record.
He defeated Logan Paul by split decision after six rounds at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
In amateur contests, KSI has won one and drawn one, beating Joe Weller via TKO in round three at Copper Box Arena and drawing with Logan Paul at Manchester Arena.
The 29-year-old has three knockout wins under his belt in three exhibition matches, beating Swarmz, Luis Alcaraz Pineda and FaZe Temperrr.
Fournier made his professional debut in October 2015 when sealing a first round TKO victory over Jorge Burgos, while he needed just 38 seconds to stop Manuel Ragalado the following month.
The Badass Billionaire was very active the following year, fighting seven times in 2016 with six of those ending in victories inside the distance and one being deemed a no contest after Fournier tested positive for banned substances.
He won the vacant WBA International light-heavyweight title courtesy of a win over Wilmer Mejia in December 2018, and moved up to number 11 in the rankings.
After a lengthy break due to injury, Fournier competed again in April 2021 against Colombian reggaeton singer Reykon, winning via corner retirement after the first round.
