KSI reckons Tommy Fury will "s*** himself" and lose his grudge match with Jake Paul in Tampa, Florida on December 18.
Love Island star Fury will take on the YouTuber in his eighth professional bout and first headline pay-per-view event.
Fury, brother of heavyweight champion Tyson, is the favourite for the fight thanks to his family's famous boxing heritage.
Paul, however, is used to fighting on the big stage after beating AnEsonGib, Nate Robinson, Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley.
And KSI, who fought Paul's older brother Logan twice in 2018 and 2019, believes the American's PPV familiarity will be the difference.
Will Tommy Fury beat Jake Paul? Let us know in the comments below!
As quoted by The Sun, the British YouTuber and rapper said: "Yeah, I see Tommy losing, you know why? I see him s***ing himself on the big stage.
"I think that's it, he [Paul] knows you've got everything, you're ready, you could f*** him up, but will you be able to act on the night? And he's just not sure."
Victory for Paul could see him face KSI next year in an event that would generate millions of pounds in revenue.
The American recently said he's willing to pay KSI $5million to face him in a boxing ring – insisting the Brit is "scared" to face him.
Paul said last month: "I think KSI should retire from everything he's doing.
"[He has] Seven million monthly listeners, that means he makes $30,000 a month from Spotify. That's $360,000 a year, versus fighting me for $5m. You can see why he's scared."
Fury will be feeling the nerves ahead of his first headline PPV event – but so will Paul, who hasn't faced a boxer with professional experience before.
Speaking to BT Sport, Fury's father John believes the fight will define both of their boxing careers. He said: "It's make or break, for both men.
"But it’ll hit Tommy harder because Tommy’s supposed to be a professional boxer. Tommy will work hard, he’ll do what he’s got to do.
"Has Tommy got the skill to beat him? Yes. Has he got the power to knock him out? Yes. All it is with Tommy – he’s young, can he handle the big occasion on the night?"
Fury's older brother Tyson, who is currently training the Love Island favourite, has told his sibling to quit boxing if he loses to Paul.
Is Tyson Fury the greatest British boxer of all time? Have your say!
Tyson said: "If Tommy can't splatter Jake Paul, I'll retire him from boxing myself. If he can't beat Jake Paul, forget about boxing.
"Because he's got ambitions of being a world champion, never mind beating some YouTube guy. But it's a great fight for the social media world and for all the kids out there who support them both.
"It's a great fight to watch, it's a spectacle. But Tommy – his name's Fury. If he can't beat Jake Paul, I'll have to change his name."
