Since Joe Weller and Theo Baker fought in a Brighton gym in August 2017, YouTube boxing has inspired millions of pay-per-view buys and outrageous match-ups.

Weller fought KSI, the UK’s No.1 influencer, who beat him in front of thousands at London’s Copper Box Arena, and millions more at home. Deji Olatunji is KSI’s younger brother.  Here are five fighters like Deji Olatunji, who are also YouTube stars.

Jake Paul

There has been no one in the YouTube community who has had a boxing career on par with the younger of the Paul brothers. Unlike his elder sibling, Jake has racked up some great wins, including one over AnEsonGib that has held up exceptionally well over time.

Even though he’s not a boxer, he’s beaten legitimate fighters like former Bellator champion Ben Askren and UFC champion Tyron Woodley.

Some of the YouTube fighters would have had trouble with even Nate Robinson, who looked terrible when Paul brutally stopped him.



Olatunji might have taken the top slot if he had continued to fight following his surprise victory against Logan Paul in November 2019. In his London debut at the Copper Box Arena, he quickly dispatched Joe Weller, but he was no match for the elder Paul in Manchester the following August.

However, despite being dropped in their rematch in 2019, KSI managed to come from behind and defeat Logan by a split decision in his own nation to stop their feud.

Logan, a former exhibition opponent of Floyd Mayweather, stated KSI was the most challenging puncher he had ever encountered.


Logan Paul

However, it is impossible to put Logan Paul higher than any fighters with winning records on this list because of his lack of success in the ring. His two fights with KSI ended in a draw and a loss, although the second one was contentious because he has penalized two points for a foul shot after knocking down the Brit.

And despite his excellent performance against Floyd Mayweather, the YouTube sensation would have lost that fight handily if judges had been there.

Floyd Mayweather

Money and Pretty Boy Floyd Mayweather, Jr. is an American boxer whose mix of speed, power, and technical prowess earned him the reputation as one of the greatest pound-for-pound fighters in the history of the sport.

Mayweather’s unblemished face earned him the “Pretty Boy” moniker throughout his amateur career. When it came to the Olympics, he was a three-time winner of the national Golden Gloves. Still, his amateur career ended after losing to Bulgaria’s Serafim Todorov in the semifinals by a split decision.


Viddal Riley

Viddal  Ethan Danso Riley is a British professional boxer, rapper, and online sensation from London, England. He is well-known for being a boxing trainer and a friend of YouTube star KSI.

At the European Junior Boxing Championships in Anapa, Russia, in 2013, Riley won a silver medal for England. He has yet to lose in his short professional career of just five fights in his short professional career. As a result of Mayweather Promotions, Riley was promoted.

YouTube boxing promoter Ben-Shalom thinks Viddal Riley is “far above” Jake Paul and Tommy Fury. Riley became famous as KSI’s trainer, but he’s now signed an exclusive deal with Sky Sports Boxing and BOXXER to show off his boxing prowess.



Most of the greats, like Floyd Mayweather, have retired from the sport. Maybe the Paul brothers and other YouTubers like KSI are doing the sport a secret favor by bringing in a new generation of young people who don’t know much about boxing.
