The 30-year-old is currently preparing for his battle with the former Love Island star

KSI has named Conor McGregor among the three fighters he'll look to take on once his boxing fight with Tommy Fury is out of the way.

The 30-year-old is preparing for one of the biggest nights of his life, with Saturday's showdown in Manchester creeping closer.

KSI, who was born Olajide Olayinka Williams Olatunji, has won five boxing fights so far.

He's secured victories over Joe Weller, Logan Paul, Brandon Scott, Luis Alcaraz Pineda and Thomas Oliveira.

In Fury, however, he's arguably going into his toughest test yet.

KSI and the former Love Island star have had numerous public spats in the build-up to the main event.

The former YouTuber even spat at Fury's father, John Fury, as tensions boiled over earlier in the week.

And KSI has now admitted he'll feel 'lost' once the scrap is out of the way.

However, he's also revealed McGregor, Floyd Mayweather and Jake Paul are some of the fighters he's eyeing for the future.

KSI told The Sun: "I know after this fight I’m probably going to feel a little bit lost and think, ‘I'm going to need something to excite me again.’

“And just going to figure it out, whether that’s a fight with Conor McGregor, Floyd Mayweather, Jake Paul, whatever, we’ll see.

“But right now I'm just trying to enjoy this moment because so many times there’s a destination point that I’ve got and I reach it and I’m like, ‘Now what?’

“So right now I’m just enjoying this moment and taking it all in and once I do what I said I was going to do, over and over again, yeah I get to enjoy it.

"Relish it.”

KSI has befriended Logan since their fight in 2019.

But it's a different story when it comes to the American's brother, Jake.

Jake will be in attendance to watch the fight with his sibling set to go up against Dillon Danis.

The 26-year-old has also struck up a friendship with Fury, who believes the former Disney star is 'more of a man' than KSI.

And KSI has revealed he won't exchange blows with Jake if he beats Fury - but will mock his rival instead.

He said: “No. I’m just going to laugh at him and be like, ‘This is the person you lost to.’

“Because now I’m in the driving seat, now I’m in the highest chair and I get to choose who I want.”

Speaking to the BBC, KSI also admitted he regretted the ugly scenes at his news conference before the Fury fight.

He aimed a homophobic taunt towards John Fury on Thursday after being repeatedly insulted by his opponent's father.

"There's so many things I wish I didn't do," he said.

"But it's just life. When I make a mistake, I learn from it and I improve.

"I want my audience to understand that and just get better over time."
