KSI’s brother – the first to taste defeat against Jake Paul – is stepping back into the boxing ring in a “YouTubers vs Tiktokers” fight card.
Deji, 24, was on the undercard of his brother’s bout against Logan Paul back in August 2018 to fight the younger American.
While the trash talk was intense, the Brit was handed a defeat by TKO in the fifth round of six by Paul.
The American YouTuber has continued in his boxing career, now set for a third professional fight against ex-UFC star Ben Askren.
But Deji has now been announced as part of a YouTube lineup to take on the stars of social media channel TikTok.
In an event provided by LiveXLive, the Brit is once again second on the undercard behind Austin McBroom vs Bryce Hall.
And he is taking on Vinnie Hacker, who boasts 6.6m followers on TikTok and 337m likes – taking on his first fight at 18 years old.
Deji shared the news on his Twitter channel, but fans were less than impressed with his boxing move.
“This is so cringe,” one said – spotting the spelling mistake in “entertainment” on the poster.
Another commented: “Who the f*** is Vinnie Hacker?”
While a third sent the 24-year-old a warning, with: “You better not call Jake out for a rematch after beating up some 5ft 8in Tiktoker with no boxing experience.”
And a fourth added: “Boxing is a joke.”
A fifth held nothing back, commenting: “Fight a real opponent and not someone who’s barely turned 18.”

With a final viewer simply saying: “If Deji loses this match can we all respectfully agree he shouldn’t fight?”
Deji teased the announcement on his Twitter page earlier this month, posting a photo of himself with red boxing gloves with: “Don’t doubt me.”
The 24-year-old has not fought since his bout at the AO Arena, Manchester.
But the Brit surprised fans ahead of KSI vs Logan Paul 2 when he wished his brother’s opponent good luck for the fight which he would lose.
Hacker rose to prominence for his short comedy and lip-sync videos on social media.
While the main fight of the night is between McBroom, founder of the ACE Family YouTube channel, and 19.5m-follower Tiktok star Hall.
