Two months after the long-awaited KSI vs Logan Paul rematch, Jake Paul and AnEsonGib stand as the next YouTubers to throw down in the boxing ring. We’ve compiled everything fans need to know to catch the action live at the month’s end!
Although Jake initially pleaded with boxing promoter Eddie Hearn for a bout on the KSI vs Logan Paul 2 undercard, Hearn ultimately decided on a separate bout for the Team 10 founder further down the line.
Now, that match has finally arrived — and it may not be the last of Jake’s grudge matches against fellow content creators, either.

Why are Jake and Gib boxing in the first place?
In the spirit of the KSI vs Logan Paul rematch, Jake Paul initially hoped to fight major online personalities or even mainstream celebrities, calling out the likes of FaZe Banks and even rapper Soulja Boy.
Unfortunately, these challenges never came to fruition, and despite his pleas to fight on the November 9 undercard, Hearn ultimately set him up for a separate bout to kick off 2020.
However, British YouTuber AnEsonGib isn’t his first choice, with Jake notably calling out KSI for a fight as revenge for his older brother’s defeat.
With KSI ultimately agreeing to this proposition, should he win, the Team 10 founder called Gib nothing more than a “doormat” on his way to his true goal — a bout that would add yet another chapter to the already explosive KSI/Paul brother rivalry.
