KSI insists Logan Paul has piled on too much muscle and will gas out again in the latter rounds of their Saturday night fight.
In the original exhibition bout in Manchester in August 2018, the American dominated the first two rounds with a string of heavy shots landing on the Watford internet icon.
But KSI had boxed the previous February and was being well trained by professional cruiserweight Viddal Riley and paced himself better to nick some of the late rounds and secure a draw.
The Staples Center six-round decider is a professional bout, with no headguards and 10oz gloves, and both YouTube stars insist they have trained like seasoned pugilists.
But KSI, real name Olajide Olayinka Williams, insists his bulked-up opponent will be too heavy for the cruiserweight clash.
He said: “He has got bigger and built muscle so he will tire late again.
“He will start fast but then that doesn’t work if he is too f***** to last the six rounds.
“I have the stamina to last all six. I will be going at a pace to make him really uncomfortable. I will cut out his jab he will have to do a lot more than a jab.”
Despite Paul’s new bulging biceps and ripped abs, KSI believes he will be most vulnerable to the body.
The 26-year-old will mix up the levels to target to Paul’s torso, as well as his famous face, and he hopes that – and his boosted boxing IQ – will help him get revenge.
He said: “Bodyshots hurt more than head punches. Getting properly punched in the body really slows you down.
“I will be aiming for the body, I did last time and I will again. I did it last time and he clung on every time I caught him so he could recover.
“He was lucky last time that I did not really know how to get out of the clinch but now I do. And I cannot wait to get in the ring and show the world how good I am.
“I feel different mentally, because in the first fight I was afraid of getting hit, no one likes it.
“I wanted to hit and not get hit but I'm passed that barrier now and am calmer, I don't panic, I am smarter.”
