During HAchubby’s visit to the United States in January, fans speculated whether the popular Korean Twitch streamer could be joining OfflineTV after visiting their house for a collaboration broadcast with Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys.

HAchubby was one of the breakout stars of Twitch in 2019, as the Korean streamer connected with viewers on her journey to learn English with her chat through meme culture.

However, after her second visit to the United States, speculation grew as to whether the personality could eventually be joining OfflineTV after she posted a photo wearing their merchandise.

Could HAchubby join OfflineTV?

The streamer visited the United States for the second time on January 16th, and documented her trip meeting up with American-based streamers such as AngelsKimi, MayaHiga, and TheSushiDragon.

However, the Twitch personality joined Pokimane for a stream on January 21 where the two discussed a variety of topics, such as her journey to learn English. “If you move to Los Angeles, you would learn English in six months. Done!” she told the Korean.

The following day on January 22, HAchubby joined the rest of the OfflineTV crew, which included LilyPichu, Fedmyster, Pokimane, and Michael Reeves, for a group IRL broadcast at Universal Studios in California.

While doing collaboration streams is not proof of her joining, HAchubby has showed interest in moving to America in the past, and when newest member YouTuber Michael Reeves joined the streaming group, he had hung out with them on numerous occasions before it became official.

Fan speculation was fueled further when the Korean streamer posted a photo on her Instagram on January 24, wearing an OfflineTV hoodie, which she had sported during their Universal broadcast.

After posting the photo, fans wondered if she could be the latest member to join OfflineTV, such as user ‘oceanic_pears’ who jokingly cracked “Lmao Hachu new offline.tv member confirmed?” – a sentiment that was seen in the chat during the group’s broadcast.

Fans speculated whether she could be joining the streaming collective.

Only time will tell if HAchubby will ever move to the States to stream or whether she will land at the OfflineTV house, but fans can’t help but think of the possibility after her recent vacation.

At the time of this article, the Korean personality has amassed over 162k followers, which is all the more impressive considering she gained almost all of her viewers in just under a year since gaining popularity in 2019.

After months of back-and-forth, Jake Paul and Nate Robinson finally stepped into the squared circle for their highly-anticipated boxing matchup, but Jake Paul dominated and wrapped it up early.

YouTubers strapping on boxing gloves and squaring up with one another was a trend kicked off by KSI and Joe Weller back in 2018. Since then, the concept has exploded – including KSI forging rivalries with the Paul brothers and fighting Logan Paul in a professional bout in Los Angeles. 

Typically, it has been all about a YouTuber fighting another content creator, but Jake Paul’s next fight was a little different. He fought former NBA star Nate Robinson on the undercard of the Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. exhibition bout, and it was a dominant performance.

Jake Paul dominates Nate Robinson, Round 2 KO

Nate Robinson looked anxious right out of the gate, but it didn’t stop him from having an energetic start. He came in with his fists flying and tried to assert his dominance early on, although he looked a little clumsy at times.

Still, it wasn’t long before Jake Paul’s superior experience and skillset started to show. He dished out a series of calculated strikes and hugs to stop Nate in his tracks. It totally slowed down the momentum and even reversed it.

From that point onwards, Jake Paul was never in doubt. He downed Nate Robinson towards the end of the first round, but the former NBA star managed to get back on his feet and stay in the fight.

However, it didn’t last much longer. Jake Paul continued to dominate in the second round and sent Nate crashing down once again. He managed to get up one last time, but Jake Paul absolutely flattened him with an impressively powerful punch to knock him out and seal the deal.

Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. fight card

As for who else was in action on the card, it wasn’t full of YouTubers or other side shows like some of Paul’s other fights, but instead, actual professional bouts. Former undefeated light-heavyweight star Badou Jack was in action, moving to Cruiserweight, while the highly anticipated matchup between Tyson and Jones Jr was an electrifying affair.

  • Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr
  • Jake Paul vs Nate Robinson
  • Badou Jack vs Blake McKernan
  • Hasim Rahman Jr vs Rashad Coulter
  • Jamaine Ortiz vs Nahir Albright
  • Irvin Gonzalez vs Edward Vasquez
  • Juiseppe Cusumano vs Nick Jones

All in all, it was an impressive performance by Jake Paul. Of course, he was widely expected to win since he’s been in the game for longer than Nate Robinson.

Still, he moved and punched like a true professional, and has already set his sights on what’s next.
