Ahead of his upcoming match against “ACE Family” YouTube star Austin McBroom, TikToker Bryce Hall has set his sights on another target: KSI, the YouTuber who famously defeated Logan Paul in a split-decision victory in 2019.
A boxing feud has been brewing between Hall, a 21-year-old influencer with nearly 20 million followers on TikTok, and KSI, a 27-year-old YouTuber with approximately 12.7 million subscribers.
KSI, whose real name is Olajide Olayinka Williams Olatunji, is no stranger to the influencer-boxer scene. His 2018 match against Joe Weller marked the beginning of the YouTuber boxing craze, USA Today reported.
It’s unclear exactly where the feud between Hall and KSI started, but it bubbled over on May 18 in a series of tweets that the two personalities exchanged.
“KSI just said he would f-ck me up in the ring HAHAHHAAH i wouldn’t wanna ruin the fitht you’ve been dodging with jake just because you lost to a tiktoker,” Hall tweeted the afternoon of the 18th.
“You’re literally easy work. Who do you think you’re talking to?” KSI responded in a quote tweet.

KSI has had notable boxing feuds with Paul and his brother, Jake. In early 2020, Jake said he wanted to “avenge” his brother Logan’s loss in his own fight with KSI, but the pair have yet to fight.
As the pair continued to spar on Twitter on May 18, Hall referenced those feuds, saying that KSI was “scared of jake paul” and KSI firing back that Hall was a “Jake Paul wannabe.” That particular exchange ended with KSI saying they could talk after Hall won his fight with McBroom.
Later that day, KSI tweeted a photo of Hall sparring with McBroom at a press conference for the “Battle of the Platforms” event.

In a May 22 tweet, Hall declared that his next fight would be against KSI, while fellow TikTok creator Tayler Holder’s would be against Deji, KSI’s brother and a fellow YouTuber.
