FaZe Clan owner Ricky ‘Banks’ Banks had a very public falling out with Fortnite pro Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney in 2019 – but has now explained how NFL great Tom Brady helped the two reunite.

As a lifelong New England Patriots fan, Banks has made no secret of the fact that Brady is his idol in life, even suggesting that he would do some unsavory things to the six-time Super Bowl champion as a sign of gratitude.

So, despite the dominant quarterback’s move to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in March 2020, Banks still has a lot of love for the man – and Tfue decided to put aside their differences thanks to Brady.

Tfue’s ‘Release the Contract’ video, slamming his FaZe Clan contract, went viral.

Appearing in an episode of Impaulsive co-host Mike Majlak’s ‘The Night Shift’, in which he showed off the new FaZe house, Banks described what went down between the three of them.

After revealing that he and Tfue played Fortnite with Brady’s son, Banks added that he got to have a conversation with the man himself, saying: “Turner reached out, because he’s from Tampa… solid move on Tfue’s part [because] obviously we’ve got some sh*t up in the air.

“But he knows my love for the Patriots and Tom Brady. He FaceTimed me and I was like, ‘what the f**k could this be about?’ and he says: ‘Yo, I’m about to be talking to Tom Brady, hop on Fortnite’.”

Banks even added that it wasn’t “bittersweet” because of Brady signing for the Bucs – in fact, if it wasn’t for that, Tampa-native Tfue may never have had the chance to connect with Brady at all.

As Banks says, this is a solid move on Tfue’s part, knowing how much he loves Brady and putting aside their differences to help him meet his idol.

It suggests that, despite ongoing lawsuits between Tfue and FaZe Clan, there’s still a bit of love between the two, and Tom Brady might just be the man to bring them back together.

Report claims Logan Paul vs Floyd Mayweather fight postponed

News outlets are reporting that highly-anticipated boxing match between boxing legend Floyd Mayweather and YouTuber-turned-amateur-boxer Logan Paul is being postponed.

Irish sports journalist Donagh Corby, who reports on behalf of MMA Island, claimed in a Tweet that he was told the match – which was scheduled for 2o February – had been rescheduled. He claims he was told this by Kelvin Moore, Logan Paul’s coach.

This comes after Moore posted about the fight being postponed on his own social media before deleting it.

The special exhibition fight, which Mayweather was set to come out of retirement for, was meant to be a pay-per-view event sponsored by Fanmio, a business offering video messages by celebrities.

Adding fuel to the rumors, fans noticed that Mayweather has since taken Fanmio out of his Twitter bio. JLeon also hinted that a reschedule was on the horizon during the latest episode of Jeff Mayweather’s podcast, where he said that he was “still waiting to hear the official date” of the fight.

Although Boxing News 24/7 reported that the fight has been delayed due to a “distinct lack of interest”, there is no official reason for the supposed reschedule.

Fans have had mixed reactions to the alleged postponement. One Twitter user claimed that “this has been known by some fans for a couple of weeks now”, while others were amused that “lack of interest” is the alleged reason for the postponement. A fan on Twitter said of the “lack of interest rumours: “That’s really the worst for Logan Paul -not humiliation or losing but nobody giving a s**t.”

Others are sceptical that a “lack of interest” is the true reason for the rescheduling, with one Twitter fan pointing out that it couldn’t be postponed due to lack of interest because the fight “hasn’t been promoted at all.”

This led to Twitter users speculating that the postponement is actually due to a struggle to secure a venue and confirm undercards.

Neither Paul nor Mayweather have spoken out publicly about the alleged postponement.

At the time of writing, Fanmio are still selling PPV access to the fight, with their website saying that the fight is set to happen in 27 days.
