KSI and Tommy Fury erupted into a Twitter spat amid rumoured talks for a celebrity boxing fight between the two.
YouTube, music and influencer boxing star KSI looked on course to finally settle his score with arch rival Jake Paul this year.
But those plans look to have faced the KO after Paul was beaten by Fury in February by split-decision in Saudi Arabia.
KSI has since revealed he now wants to instead face Fury and finish what Paul started.
He tweeted: "I’d much rather fight and beat Tommy Fury so I can ruin Jake Paul’s legacy."
But a shocked Fury, 23, responded: "Wait. Beat who?"

To which KSI, 29, bluntly fired back: "Beat you. Can you not read?"
Paul, 26, snubbed a Fury rematch or talks with KSI to instead return on August 5 in Texas against 38-year-old ex-UFC star Nate Diaz.
So KSI will refuse to wait around for Paul and instead try to one-up his arch enemy by beating Fury.
He told SunSport: "I want Tommy Fury, simple as that. I'm not going to waste my time with Jake Paul.
