YouTube stars KSI and Logan Paul are set to throw down in the boxing ring once more on November 9, but word is still out on an undercard - but social media celeb Yousef “Fouseytube” Erakat has his own plans for the event.
While Fouseytube took a year-long hiatus from content creation, the YouTuber is back and better than ever, scheduled to box fellow YouTuber Slim Albaher in September - but Slim isn’t the only opponent Fousey has his eyes on.
Erakat made a major callout toward popular YouTuber Jake Paul in a video on August 21, challenging him to step in the boxing ring for “personal” reasons that he didn’t want to air out publicly.
“My endgame is Jake Paul,” Fouseytube stated. “Jake, I want all the smoke. You know who my coaches are, you know who my trainers are - you have history with them. Well, they’re my coaches now. And we want all the smoke!”
Paul wasn’t the only YouTuber Fousey went after, either: he also responded to a sparring challenge issued by Deji Olatunji, KSI’s younger brother, who claimed that Fousey was “nowhere near ready” to fight him.
“Deji, I don’t know what you’re thinking,” Fousey responded. “I don’t know who you thought you were against Jake, but you are not about that life. If you want to spar, you can get it any time.”
Although Deji originally wanted a rematch against Jake, the youngest Paul brother denied his request, claiming that he wanted to fight someone with “clout” - and while he has yet to respond to Fousey’s callout, another YouTuber has also risen to the challenge.

Instagram star and bodybuilder Bradley Martyn replied to news outlet “TheBreadBatch’s” coverage of the subject, responding with a “wave” to indicate that he would take on the Team 10 leader.
Although Martyn is nowhere near the same weight class as Paul, their bout would make for an interesting matchup, considering the bodybuilder’s huge muscle against Jake’s leaner physique.
With nothing set in stone just yet, fans are waiting with bated breath for further details on the fight, which will throw down in the Los Angeles Staples Center in just three months.
