Deji sells bloodstained gloves from Jake Paul boxing match

While KSI and Logan Paul might be YouTube’s most popular white-collar boxers, they aren’t the only entertainers to have stepped in the ring – and one of these content creators is looking to make a surprising profit off the sport.

KSI and Logan Paul faced off for the first time in August 2018 – but unlike their rematch, the undercard was filled with other YouTubers, including their own younger brothers.

Deji Olatunji and Jake Paul faced off ahead of their older siblings’ highly-anticipated match, with Jake Paul ultimately emerging the victor.

While Deji received a sound beating – losing to Jake by knockout – the British YouTuber showed that he was no slouch, managing to score several hits to the youngest Paul brother’s face during their bout.

Now, over a year later, Deji is revisiting their fight in a highly unexpected way. Rather than replaying their match for another reaction video, the YouTuber is selling the very gloves he used to pummel his opponent in an online auction.

Deji is selling his boxing gloves from his match with Jake Paul.

Their historical significance aside, there’s something about these gloves that Deji was intent on advertising – more specifically, the fact that they’re covered with Paul’s blood, as he made sure to mention in his video on the topic.

“You guys know, when I fought Jake Paul, I made him bleed,” Deji announced. “He was the only one who bled during our fight. They still have Jake Paul’s blood on them. They have not been washed or cleaned.”

Currently, Deji’s eBay listing has reached £65,800.00 from 69 bidders – but it’s not just fans who are hoping to get their hands on the coveted gloves.

Drama Alert’s Daniel “KEEMSTAR” Keem has likewise placed a bid on the bloodstained gauntlets, albeit differently, warning Deji that a Jake Paul fan might buy the gloves and destroy all evidence of his pounding in the ring.

“…a Jake Pauler will buy and destroy,” KEEMSTAR cautioned. “I know we have not seen eye to eye. But I’ll pay you a fair amount and will keep them forever. I have been collecting for the YouTuber museum. Please reach out.”

For now, it looks like the bidding is still on – but Deji has more on his mind than just money, announcing that he will make a return to the sport in the wake of his older brother’s split-decision victory on November 9.

Dr Disrespect trolls mobile gamers and players take the bait

Dr Disrespect has taken a cheeky swipe at mobile gamers on Twitter, asking how anybody can even consider it to be a “serious” way to play – but players are fighting their corner. 

The Two-Time has had a whirlwind 2020 by all accounts. He’s moved platforms from Twitch to YouTube, and while some might have expected his influence on the gaming world to perhaps decrease in that move – he’s still one of the best at stirring the pot.

Of course, a lot of franchises that made their name on PC and console, like Call of Duty, PUBG, FIFA and Fortnite, have brought their games to iOS and Android.

Though, Doc doesn’t seem to be a fan.

Dr Disrespect takes aim at mobile gamers

Dr Disrespect has turned into a mainstream symbol of the streaming world, and sure knows how to get people talking.

On November 26, literally out of nowhere in vintage Doc style, he decided to joke about the idea of playing games on mobile.

He said: “I’ve got 3 state-of-the-art 1ms speed color calibrated monitors staring at me, a keyboard with titan switch optical keystrokes and a mouse that weighs literally nothing backed by a 200k multi pc setup….and you have the guts to tell me mobile gaming is a serious thing?”

As you might expect, he’s sparked a huge debate in the replies – with some arguing for and against his point of view.

One user, by the name of Yettobegin, said: “Well Dr.D not everyone can afford a good PC setup and that’s why mobile gaming is so popular in southern Asian countries.. Anyways I don’t hear any mobile gamers fighting for validation as a “Gamer”.. If u want to play in mobile and have fun who cares?!”

If you thought that was a strong response, wait until you see this.

Tribe Gaming’s Ferg challenged the self-professed best video gamer in the world to a 1v1 in CoD Mobile, with $100,000 on the line. As of writing, that has not been accepted, but it shows there’s certainly a lot of people out there wanting to prove him wrong.

This was not the only challenge, with Elijah Jackson offering a $10,000 wager of his own.

XSET Juicy, who plays PUBG Mobile competitively, also fired back – saying maybe gaming on mobile is too “difficult” for Doc to handle.

Nothing might come from this or Dr Disrespect actually might take up one of the offers, in a way to shoot down mobile gamers who stand in his way.

No matter what, though, he’s certainly achieved his objective of drumming up some debate. What happens next should be interesting.
