KSI wants to sensationally up the stakes for his grudge match with Tommy Fury – with a whopping £1million bet on himself.
The YouTuber-turned-boxer locks horns with the younger brother of heavyweight champion Tyson in an eagerly-anticipated influencer showdown next month.

During a live stream with the controversial Adin Ross, he said: "I’m trying to put a million down on myself."
KSI quickly revealed that bookmakers will allow him to bet on himself, just not the eyewatering figure he wants to lay down.
