Constantly bouncing on his toes and throwing jabs from distance, KSI stepped in and threw a big right hand which landed flush on Temperrr’s face.
He then followed it up with the left hand that knocked Temperrr out in devastating fashion.
Temperrr tried his best to get up, but fell over in his attempt to do so.
The victory sparked wild celebrations from KSI and his team as he improved to 5-0-1 in just his third fight in over three years.
It was an unfortunate result for Temperrr given he stepped up to fight KSI on just 10 days’ notice after his original opponent, the highly controversial Dillon Danis, pulled out.
Jake Paul, one of the most successful influencers-turned-boxers, watched the fight with keen interest and shared his thoughts immediately after the fight.
“I love when KSI wins because it gives him more confidence for him to actually get in the ring with me,” Paul wrote on Twitter.
KSI has fought Jake’s older brother, Logan, twice before and has both drawn and beaten the American.
In his post-fight speech, KSI called out Joe Fournier and former UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, claiming he wants “one more test before I reach that final level, that final point — Jake motherf*****g Paul!”
