To win such a fight, KSI shared that he would have to dodge the Icelandic boxer whilst being quick on his feet, bobbing in an out at the right time:

“So it’s kind of it’s one of the things where because he’s so slow” …  “you just get out of the way and then while he’s like recharging to strike again you can [hit him a few times]”
