    Reality TV star Joey Essex has joked he would "leather" KSI if the two were ever to meet in a boxing ring.

    Essex spoke to IFL TV after KSI was defeated by Tommy Fury in the YouTubers Misfits promotion. The TOWIE star said it's been a dream of his to step into the ring – and he could do so against KSI.

    He said: "If I was to do boxing, I'm doing that for me, you know what I mean? I've never done that before, but I've got it written on my bucket list. In my life I want to win some kind of gold medal, and this will be my gold medal and I'll absolutely leather someone…"

    Essex was then asked if we had any beef with the individuals in the social media boxing space – such as KSI or Jake Paul. And he responded: "Someone told me that KSI's got a problem with me, but there's no problem here – unless he wants a problem.

    "I would leather him I reckon, especially after seeing that fight the other week!"
