Ex-One Direction singer Liam Payne called out Youtuber KSI and mega-superstar Justin Bieber for a fight.
Celebrity boxing isn’t going away; in fact, it is probably here to stay. The latest celebrity to potentially fight is Ex-One Direction singer and Teen Choice Awards winner Payne.
On a recent episode of Impaulsive with Logan Paul, Payne revealed that he is a massive fan of boxing and, if given the chance, he would box against two particular people.
“I love boxing as a sport and I think it’s fantastic. I would just enjoy the challenge and the road up to it would be great. Yeah I would fight KSI he would have to come down a few weight slots. But yeah I’d fight him. I like him too much though. I will fight whoever you want. But I don’t think Justin Bieber would do it. For the same reason I wouldn’t fight Trippie Redd, I don’t think he is on my level. But if he did want to do it I would,” Payne said.
Bieber to boxing?
According to The Mirror, Bieber has been training very hard in the sport getting ready for a movie, and is thinking about becoming the next celebrity turning pro boxer, like Jake Paul.
“Bieber has recently been training in the sport for a role in a film about boxing promoter Dmitry Salita, and has been tipped to be the next Jake Paul in the ring. The Canadian musician has been tipped by screenwriter Gregory Howard to make the switch after showing skills in sparring.”
Howard told The Mirror, “From what I’ve seen of Justin Bieber, he has the talent and the boxing skill to crossover from an entertainment background into boxing.”
If Bieber is as good as his screenwriter thinks he is, Payne better watches out.
KSI, on the other hand, who actually has a professional boxing match under him, is planning his return to boxing for the first time since his Paul rematch in 2019. It will be under his own promotion, Misfits Boxing, and looks to be taking place in August.
