KSI feels “like a god”.
The 29-year-old star is feeling “like a total alpha” as he prepares to box both Swarmz and Mexico’s Luis Alcarez Pineda on the same night in London on August 27.
KSI, whose real name is Olajide ‘JJ’ Olatunji, said: “Honestly, I feel like God. I feel like a complete alpha among other men.
“Not to be stupid, but I just feel like nobody can get ahead of me and nobody can hit me.
“I don’t feel like everyone else. I think it’s just because I’m super fit and super fit. I feel good too. I look at myself in the mirror, and I just look at myself for five minutes, just like, “Jesus Christ. I’m sick.” But I worked hard for it. I worked really hard for this, man.”
The rap star is currently focused on his upcoming fights at the O2 Arena in London.
But in the long term, he would like to fight and beat the undefeated Floyd Mayweather, who many consider one of the greatest boxers of all time.
The ‘Poppin’ hitmaker told Men’s Health magazine: ‘I want to be the first person to ever beat Mayweather. But you work on it. It doesn’t just happen. I’m the one working on it. These are all incremental steps. careers are about incremental steps. I never just flew to the moon. Everything was just working on the foundation and slowly improving.
“Even with my music, you can see where I started. My music wasn’t that good, but I steadily improved over the years. Now I’m getting number one albums and top five and top 10 singles. It shows that there is progress, and I enjoyed that it was a slow, steady, gradual progress, rather than taking off to the moon and then just having to deal with this huge pressure. There is no pressure for me.”
