Internet Roasts ‘YouTube Boxer’ KSI for Copying Mike Tyson’s Popular Neck Exercise Ahead of Match: “What a Circus, LOL!”
The king of boxing, Mike Tyson's fans are roasting the 'YouTube boxer' KSI for "copying" the boxing legend's signature neck workout while preparing for his upcoming fight. KSI was spotted doing Tyson's scariest workout during a media workout session on MisfitsBoxing Twitter handle. But fans believe he is nowhere near.
KSI is gearing up for his upcoming boxing match with his rival boxer Joe Fournier. The YouTube star's wild workout video is getting hyped up but the internet trolls him for one particular workout he performs, which they claim is the boxing champion's forte. KSI has been fighting fellow YouTubers up until now but this particular match is awaited because Fournier is the first professional boxer KSI will be face to face with. An altercation between Fournier and JJ happened at his last bout against Faze Temper, which resulted in this game.

The duo is equally enraged ahead of their face-off on May 13, 2023. However, it won't be an exaggeration to say that KSI is up for some big challenge because Fournier is a tough nut. So far, Fournier has had ten professional bouts with nine wins and 1 NC while the YouTube boxer has an amateur record of 1-0-1 and a pro record of 3-0, per LADbible. Only time will tell what is in store for KSI but one man outshined in the boxing sport and he is none other than Mike 'Iron' Tyson. The legacy he has left behind is unmatchable and boxers that followed have looked up to him, including his fitness and workout regimes. So did KSI. But Iron Tyson's fans dragged him for "copying."

The famous 'neck bridges' technique strengthens neck muscles and boxers like Tyson have been an ace at it. In his early years, when he was around 18 years old, Iron Mike developed a 20-inch neck. He used an in-ring rolling neck workout that is as dangerous to perform as it appears. Other athletes like Anthony Joshua have relied on this strenuous technique. It prepared the boxer's neck to take the punch from their opponents and come out unharmed. Similarly, KSI tried to mimic the same neck workout as Tyson but Twitter users quickly jumped in and accused him of "copying" Tyson.
A Twitter user, @DexterousAVI commented, "Bro thinks he's Mike Tyson." Another Twitter user, @carlimorton quipped, "My neck game is stronger." @BallinKy_ added, "He thinks he's Mike Tyson." LOL. The trolling game got continued as another Twitter user, @Cool1Molo joked, "What a circus! lol." @Tizbomb69 compared him to a 'ghostly act' and wrote, "That's what you see in the corner of your room at night." @Tarang_Mo said, "This is done by the street artist of my country for money."
Bro saw the mile Tyson video and tried copying it 😂— Gio (@FUT_G10) May 10, 2023
Well, we'll get to see his boxing prowess in some days. However, KSI made some controversial statements in 2020. He made claims of beating Tyson in a Sidemen video. When KSI was asked if he could beat Tyson, he replied boastfully, "I actually could though, I actually could."
