Jake Paul has challenged KSI to a boxing match in London later this month amid reports the British fighter's upcoming bout with Alex Wassabi is set to be called off. Watch the video below:

But the event is now in doubt amid reports Wassabi has sustained a concussion in training and is no longer able to fight.

"The @KSI x @AlexWassabi fight that was scheduled for 8/27 is off. Wassabi has a concussion and isn't cleared to fight," tweeted Ariel Helwani.

It was set to be KSI's first fight since he defeated Jake Paul's older brother, Logan Paul, in their rematch in 2019.

But the event, which was set to take place on Saturday, was cancelled with seven days' notice due to a disagreement over the weight class for the bout.

The @KSI x @AlexWassabi fight that was scheduled for 8/27 is off. Wassabi has a concussion and isn’t cleared to fight. @jakepaul, I’m told, has offered to fight his long-time rival KSI at 180 pounds on the same date/same venue.

Paul has now issued a challenge to KSI and says he is willing to travel to the UK to fight him as a late replacement for Wassabi.

"F****d up. This was a big opportunity for Alex. He will be back. KSI… everything happens for a reason. I'll come fight in your hometown. Your boxing company. You are A-Side.

"If he doesn't accept a fight with me, we all know that he's scared," added Paul.

Only this week, KSI had mocked Paul over the cancellation of his fight against Rahman Jr, who was drafted in as a replacement after original opponent Tommy Fury was prevented from entering the United States.

"Clearly your card is dead in the water at this point. So let me give you a lifeline," KSI tweeted.

"If you TRULY want to fight Tommy, fight on my card as the co main event. I've got everything set up for you.

"Best believe you owe me one though. Ball is in your court."
