UK YouTube star “AnEsonGib” is scheduled to touch gloves with Team 10 founder Jake Paul on January 30 — but he’s not the only Paul brother Gib has his eyes on, apparently.

With their Miami bout marking both YouTubers’ first-ever professional boxing match, tensions are higher than ever as Jake seeks his real goal at the end of the road by fighting KSI.

However, it seems that Gib is similarly open to fighting another social media star after their bout, no matter who wins — and he doesn’t seem fazed about his chances against them in the ring, whatsoever.

Jake Paul, DAZN - TwitterJake Paul and AnEsonGib are set to face off in Miami on January 30.

In an interview with Hollywood Life following his January 7 press conference, Gib spoke out on potentially fighting Logan Paul, who is currently in talks to box the NFL’s Antonio Brown.

According to Gib, a bout with the eldest Paul brother isn’t much to sweat about, with the YouTuber claiming the “Maverik” would be “easy pickings” due to his current fight record.

Logan Paul, InstagramLogan Paul, aka “The Maverick,” is currently 0-1 in his boxing career – something that Gib claims makes him “scared to get hit.”

“That would be easy pickings,” Gib said of the possibility. “The man hasn’t won a fight yet. He’s had two losses! That’s the thing, he’s got the worst YouTuber record. Official!”

That’s not all: Gib went on to claim that Logan wouldn’t want to meet him in the ring, arguing that fighting might not be Paul’s strong suit.

“He don’t want the smoke,” he continued. “It’s clear. …he’s scared to get hit. That’s a fact. The thing of it is, I think it’s another situation where he trained hard, and he’s obviously athletic, but I don’t think fighting’s for him, if I’m honest.”

Gib’s sentiment is one largely shared by many of those following Logan’s fighting career, but the YouTuber isn’t giving up one inch, after claiming that his boxing match with Antonio Brown is “closer than anyone expects.”

With Paul likewise hinting at a career in MMA, it seems both he and little bro Jake are looking to expand their opportunities outside of the vlogging camera — although there’s no telling how successful they’ll be until the time arrives (which, for Jake Paul, is less than a month away).

Tyler1 amazes Smash Ultimate pros after battling MkLeo on Twitch

Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp faced off against the number one Smash Ultimate player, Leonardo ‘MkLeo’ López Pérez, in what was meant to be a fun T1 crossover. Instead, the League challenger got to work, trash talking and smashing about the best in the world.

Tyler1 doesn’t do anything by halves. He’s loud, and has the personality to match. He revs up his Twitch stream to hundreds of thousands of adoring fans daily, who are there not for the gameplay, but for the Tyler1 ride.

Those who caught the streamer’s November 27 cast were certainly in for a ride. The League of Legends star collided with Smash Ultimate’s biggest name, MkLeo.

It makes sense a crossover between the two was inevitable ⁠— with both being part of prestigious organization T1 ⁠— but the action exceeded everyone’s expectations. Of course, Tyler1 got trounced by MkLeo. However, that doesn’t mean he wasn’t able to get a stock or two, and the League streamer let the Smash pro know about it.

“Leo, I don’t think you’re that good dude. How bad are Smash players if I almost f**king beat you,” Tyler1 said, while struggling to get more than half a stock on average every game.

MkLeo didn’t take it lying down though. “You’re so bad that you’re really good at the same time,” he hit back with.

Tyler1 kept frying the big fish though. Next on his stop of trash talk was Leffen. “Leffen is a scrawny p*ssy a** b*tch. Kid sucks at f**king Smash. Rages at a children’s game, f**king loser,” he said, which had MkLeo in stitches. He had enough slaptalk for Samsora and other pros too.

Fans were also treated to some iconic Tyler1 reactions, and there was none bigger than the streamer’s bewilderment at Arsene, Joker’s Persona. “What the hell is that? Did you just enter a cheat code, bud? Are you cheating?”

After it was all said and done though, the crossover did what it intended to do. It united the League of Legends and Smash communities, and entertained everyone in the crossover that no one really wanted, but they definitely enjoyed.

“Playing and chilling with [Tyler1] really made me realize what it is to be a streamer and a gamer. Loved his personality and him as a person, looking forward to more collaborations like these,” MkLeo said on Twitter.

“T1 playing smash with Leo was actually so godlike. Makes me actually want to play league more and see if I can get to further than Masters,” Samsora also added on Twitter.

Tyler1 kept his side of the story nice and quaint though: “It was pretty fun.”
