Boxer Joe Fournier says Reuben's salt beef is a knockout

The businessman also said he was looking for a rematch with Youtuber KSI


Boxer Joe Fournier may still be smarting from his last fight – but today he decided to refuel at his favourite kosher hotspot. Pictured tucking into a world-famous Reuben’s salt-beef on rye bread sandwich, Fournier also devoured falafel and shawarma washed down with a glass of kosher white wine - also with sides of matza ball soup, Israeli salad and hummus.

Speaking to the JC from the London restaurant, the 40-year-old said: “This is the second time I’ve come here, and we are not playing around. This time we are feasting on falafel and shwarma at Reuben’s, which is the best kosher restaurant in the country! If I lived nearby, I would be here everyday.”

Dining with his friend, Orthodox entrepreneur Jonathan Moradoff, who he first met through work, he added: “Reuben’s salt beef sandwich is my favourite dish on the menu, but I’ve also sneaked in a cottage pie.”

Since meeting Jonathan, Fournier has joined the Moradoff family for Shabbat dinner, enjoying a range of home-cooked meals by Mr Moradoff’s wife Odelia, who has a kosher catering company.

“She cooked up a storm,” he said. “There was homemade Challah bread, the matzah ball soup was amazing and there were kosher steaks.”

Fournier faced YouTube star KSI at Wembley Arena this month for the MF cruiserweight title. Replays showed KSI elbowing Fournier during the finishing sequence as he attempted a right hook, with the Professional Boxing Association ruling it as a no-contest

“I am ready for a KSI knockout after that salt beef sandwich,” said Fournier. “I would love a rematch, unless he is too much of a coward to take the fight.”
