Logan Paul and KSI announce boxing retirement on TikTok despite Jake’s progress

Logan Paul and KSI have announced their shock retirement from boxing despite Jake Paul's recent success in the ring.

The pair confirmed their decision after teaming up together to launch a new energy drink in the United States.

It marks a new frontier for the two social media stars who had previously been best of enemies rather than best of friends.

Paul and KSI have come to blows twice in the ring, with their first match-up as amateurs in 2018 ending in a draw.

After turning professional, the pair met again for a rematch in 2019, which the Briton won via split decision.

Despite Paul claiming that "boxing redemption" was on his list of goals for 2022, it appears he and KSI have now buried the hatchet, choosing instead to focus on their new business venture.

The two former rivals have been in Los Angeles to work on promoting their new Prime drink, which will arrive in the UK later this year.

As part of their promotional campaign, Paul and KSI appeared on the ItsDanielMac TikTok channel where they confirmed their retirement from boxing.

When asked what they do for a living, KSI responded: "Well we used to be boxers but we're retired now."

Paul added: "Yeah."

Fans of the social media stars were happy to see them join forces and become business partners, but were left disappointed that they wouldn't get to see another rematch between the pair.

Taking to Twitter, one person wrote: "Great to see how much Logan Paul has matured over time. Can't say the same for his brother unfortunately. Nice to see him and KSI bonding together."

And someone else added: "It’s so cool to see KSI and Logan Paul do business together."

Logan and KSI's rivalry lasted for some time, and the Brit is still at odds with his new business partner's younger brother, Jake, who is 5-0 as a professional boxer.

The younger Paul brother disagreed with the split decision defeat to KSI for a number of years, before finally admitting that he lost fair and square in a joint live stream earlier this week.

"I love you for real and I don't feel like fighting again," Paul admitted during the live stream. "That second fight I think you won fair and square."

"I think you won so congratulations man, we have been divided in the past but it's done.

"The division is over, 2022 is the year of love and we have come together to announce possibly the biggest thing we will ever build."
