Given they always take shots at each other, have engaged in football matches, and are now set for a boxing showdown, the question arises: Is there any rivalry between them? Let’s dive in to find out. 

Are KSI and IShowSpeed Truly Rivals?

In September, KSI’s Sidemen played a charity football match against YouTube All-Stars. The All-Stars lost, and during the game, Speed, CR7 fan, missed a penalty while KSI was in goal, leading to some playful mockery. And not just this, we have seen each other talking shots at each other on the internet.
