CONOR McGREGOR has slammed “friendly little nerd” KSI for having a “nothing burger” boxing match with his former training partner, Dillon Danis.
YouTube star-turned-boxer KSI, 29, is taking on ex-MMA star Danis on January 14, 2023.
KSI was last in action against Swarmz and Luis Pineda in August, while Danis has never had a professional fight before.
And former two division UFC champion McGregor is in no mood to entertain the “nothing burger” boxing match, and slammed KSI as a “friendly little nerd”, while telling Danis to get back into MMA.
KSI responded to McGregor’s tweet talking about why he hasn’t spoken to Danis in a while, saying: “I’m sorry but I’m about do some serious damage to your boy.”
McGregor replied: “Brother you’re a friendly little nerd I don’t care.
“He should be back doing MMA if he is doing this little nothing burger match with you.
“I couldn’t care less about this genre of boxing, I am sorry. Have a good one.”
McGregor taking aim at celebrity boxing could end YouTuber Jake Paul’s hopes of landing a fight with him.
Paul, who boasts a professional record of 6-0 and recently beat UFC legend Anderson Silva, has claimed he would knock McGregor out.

And Matchroom chief Eddie Hearn has said the fight between the two would be competitive.
He said in 2020: “I think it’s reasonably competitive, especially with the weight difference.
“Jake Paul vs Conor McGregor is a lot more competitive than Conor vs Floyd Mayweather.”
McGregor last stepped inside the squared circle against unbeaten boxing great Floyd Mayweather in 2017.
A fight which he claims he “carried”.
In response to a dig from former UFC rival Nate Diaz, the Irishman said: “I carried Floyd.
“Not next time. Like in the pub. One shot. Nighty night I don’t give a rats, U too.”
The Irishman is expected to make his return to UFC next year.
