Responding to a call-out from popular YouTube personality Jake Paul, Isiah ‘Sensei’ Ocasio of the FaZe Clan seems ready to put on some 8oz gloves to settle the beef.

Following a majority draw in their first bout on August 25, 2018, YouTube stars KSI and Logan Paul are set to get back in the ring for a rematch in the Los Angeles Staples Center on November 9. 

While the undercard for the popular main-event currently features a number of professional boxers and even the likes of undefeated world champion Billy Joe Saunders, there’s a good chance we see additional YouTubers thrown into the mix, such as Logan’s brother Jake Paul.

Jake, who earned a fifth-round TKO victory over KSI’s brother Deji Olatunji at the first event, has made it clear that he’s looking for an opponent for the upcoming undercard.

In a recent clip, he essentially called out FaZe Sensei, another popular YouTube personality who similarly earned himself a TKO victory against Overtflow at the first KSI/Logan Paul bout.

“There’s another guy named FaZe Sensei, who got a million views on the re-upload of his fight,” Jake Paul said, alluding to the prospect of lining up a boxing match against the FaZe member.

FaZe Sensei responded to the comments made by Jake Paul, Tweeting: “I mean if he’s asking for it…”

He also followed up on Instagram, stating that “I never called @jakepaul out because I didn’t think he would be willing to fight me. Let’s give him what’s he wants. #FaZeUp.”

Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn recently commented on the potential of adding Jake Paul to the undercard, stating that “it’s just about strategy moving forward. We can’t make our business like, ‘Oh yeah, everybody – do you wanna go? Do you wanna go? There’s got to be strategy and there’s got to be skill.”

Thus, it remains to be seen whether Jake Paul will even be competing on the undercard, let alone if his opponent will be FaZe Sensei or any other YouTube personality for that matter.

KSI vs Logan Paul Part 2 will take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA on November 9, 15 months following their initial matchup, which ended up in a famous draw.

Small Warzone streamer gets 3 million Twitch followers overnight

A Warzone streamer has been thrust into the top 30 of most followed Twitch streamers after receiving a huge, and unusual, boost in one go. 

Building up a following and community on Twitch can, obviously, be a slog if you’re starting from scratch. Streamers can stream for weeks and months on end without even having their talents recognized and blow up in popularity like others. 

Some others can take shortcuts, be it because they have a following on another platform, or because they decide to inflate it with fake accounts. 

This has happened before, with casino accounts smashing records in a bid to advertise their platform, while smaller streamers have been hit with huge boosts in an attempt to troll them for one reason or another.

NeonSniperPanda has become the fastest growing streamer for October.

Warzone streamer NeonSniperPanda has become the newest content creator to be struck by these boosts, as his channel has rocketed into the top 30 of most-followed Twitch streamers. 

The streamer, who had previously built up a modest following of nearly 10,500, received the unusual boost in early October, jumping up to over 3.3 million followers. 

As previously mentioned, this figure puts him up there with some of Twitch’s biggest names like Fortnite World Cup champion Bugha and Spanish content creator Ibai, though, NeonSniperPanda hasn’t inflated the figures himself.

NeonSniperPanda jumped up over 3.3 million followers on Twitch.

The Warzone streamer has called on Twitch a number of times to help him out, noting that he’d been botted out of the blue and given the ridiculous amount of followers.

“Yo quick reminder, I was follow botted 3.3 million and there’s no way to delete them @TwitchSupport @Twitch can you help me out bro bro,” he tweeted. 

Previously, the aileybeanssa channel had been hit with a similar botting, as they rose up to have over 4.64 million Twitch followers in September. However, those figures have since been removed. 

Given that Twitch has been able to scrub channels of botted followers, they should be able to do the same for NeonSniperPanda, but it remains to be seen as and when they might do so.
