YouTuber KSI has boldly claimed that he could beat boxing legend Mike Tyson in a match.

The star – who won against fellow YouTuber Logan Paul in his debut in boxing last year – thinks he would win against the 54-year-old as he has ‘age on his side.’

Before beating Logan in their pro fight last year, KSI had two white-collar stints – with one win against Joe Weller and one draw against Logan.

In the latest Sidemen video, the 27-year-old was questioned on whether he could beat the icon and he said: ‘I actually could though, I actually could. I’m undefeated, no-one has beaten me.’

The Sidemen absolutely lost it at KSI’s confidence, with one calling him ‘delusional’ for believing he could defeat the former boxer.

‘Have you seen Mike Tyson?’ pal Tobi Brown exclaimed in frustration.

Mike began his career in 1985 and had a total of 50 wins out of his 58 fights – with 44 of those happening by knockouts.

Still think you can beat him, KSI?

Mike had his final professional win in 2003, a 49-second first-round knockout. He lost a few bouts in 2004 and 2005 and finally retired the same year.

Meanwhile, there have been rumours flying around that Logan Paul might be fighting Floyd Mayweather.

KSI responded to the rumours, and simply tweeted a photo of a baseball cap, indicating that he doesn’t think there’s any truth to the speculation.

‘My thoughts on Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul,’ he asserted.

While neither Paul nor Mayweather have addressed the rumours, speculation has been rife online, with sports analyst Pat McAfee claiming: ‘A contract has been signed’.

However, TMZ has since reported that while Mayweather has been approached for the fight, no deal has been made and the boxer is actually ‘leaning towards no’.

Mike versus KSI and Logan versus Floyd is something we’d definitely tune into.
