Joe Fournier has confidently stated that Jake Paul will emerge victorious in the anticipated bout against KSI. In a recent interview, when asked about his former opponent taking on the rising influencer turned boxer Jake Paul, Fournier didn’t hesitate to favor the 27-year-old over the British rapper.

Joe explained how Jake Paul trains for his every fight. He compared the training camp of Jake with the Canelo Alvarez camp and drew similarities between his and KSI’s training camps. He mentioned how the proper team works with Jake Paul, where strength and conditioning coaches and nutritionists are also involved. Fournier mentioned having multiple training partners and having a size advantage over his opponent.

The British businessman said, “He’s [KSI] fast, but Jake negates that pretty easily. He’s got much more experience, much better technically, and a much bigger frame, so whatever weight they play out, And I don’t think Jake’s interested anymore; Jake’s made millions doing whatever he’s doing, and I hope he continues.”

Joe also talked about Jake’s ability to secure the victory mentioning that after two to three rounds, KSI’s intensity starts fading.
