LOGAN PAUL has claimed KSI was a TOUGHER opponent to fight than boxing legend Floyd Mayweather.
The internet sensation drew with KSI in their 2018 bout before losing the rematch a year later when they controversially turned professional.
He then returned in June 2021 for an exhibition bout and took American great Mayweather all eight rounds.
Paul outweighed the unbeaten icon by TWO STONE and revealed sharing the ring with KSI was more gruelling.
He told Misfits Boxing: “Oh, who’s tougher? Honestly, KSI. It was a harder fight, he’s just a dog.
“He’s got this tenacity and intensity that I’ve never seen. When you’re in the ring with him he just wants to kill you, he can’t lose!

“He made a documentary called ‘Can’t Lose’ and I think he really believes that in his heart so he tries as hard as he can.
“I think Floyd Mayweather knew he wasn’t gonna lose.”
In the years following their fights, KSI and Paul turned business partners with the successful launch of their Prime drink.
And they are now set to share a boxing card again but in separate bouts.

“Twice a day, six times a week. If I did that I’d crash in two weeks, he’s insane.”
