KSI has announced his sparring session with YouTuber IShowSpeed at the worst possible time for his boxing rival Jake Paul.
The pair will live stream a match for charity at the exact time as the Jake Paul vs Andre August bout on December 15th.
Speed, 18, real name Darren Jason Watkins Jr called out KSI at the end of November to take on the streamer in the ring.
The two will now battle it out in an event to raise money for the Anthony Walker Foundation.
KSI shared the news on his Twitter account on Tuesday with the caption "December 15th 😈."
But the pair have decided to go head-to-head at 4am UK time when Paul and August are expected to make their ring walk.

Paul, 26, returns against August, 35, having beaten ex-UFC star Nate Diaz, 38, two months ago.
But KSI's sparring session could cause an issue for The Problem Child as he may struggle for views as two of the biggest names on YouTube take each other on.
And the Brit's fans agree as they shared under his post that they will be tuning in to his fight over Paul's later this month.
One fan said: "I speak for all of us when I say we WONT be watching the Jake Paul fight🤝."

And a second agreed: "The only fight we’ll be watching💯."
Another added: "WE WILL BE THERE."
The timing of KSI's live stream was surely no coincidence as he and Paul have a long and bitter feud.
In 2018 KSI challenged Jake and his brother to an amateur bout.
However, he only faced Logan in the ring, who he beat and now co-promotes the Prime energy drink with.
KSI and Jake were due to fight in August but the American pulled out and chose to fight Nate Diaz instead.
Then in October after KSI's defeat against Tommy Fury, the American called him a "sore loser" after demanding an appeal.
Earlier this year Jake lost via a split decision against Fury in Saudi Arabia.
