After securing victory against Paul, KSI was caught backstage by AB Boxing News when he was asked about facing the ‘Baby’ singer in the ring.

He laughed off the proposal, and said: “Bieber, please. I’d slap Bieber.”

Before the fight, KSI – real name Olajide ‘JJ’ Olatunji – branded Bieber “an idiot” for supporting his rival.

“Bieber is an idiot for backing Logan Paul, I don’t know why he would want to do that,” he said.

“If he is going to be at the fight I’ll make sure to lock eyes with him so he can see his boy get knocked out.

“I’ll be sure to laugh at him as well.”

Bieber admitted to Sky Sports before the bout that he was unsure who KSI was.

“I don’t really know KSI and I guess I’m just a fan of Logan’s,” he said.

The Canadian crooner was left fuming by the judges’ decision to award victory to KSI, however.

Speaking after his victory, KSI said: “KSI was scared to fight last time, scared to touch him, this time I went in there.

“Fans saw how much bigger he was, his physique. So I thought screw that! I'm going to work my a*** off.

“I want to thank my team, they've helped me so much. Your boy has done it, I am victorious.

“I'm a dog, I keep saying it. He hit me in the back of the head, it was outrageous. Your boy is happy, victorious, happy days.”
