Jake Paul has accused KSI of “ducking” him regarding their potential boxing match, though the British YouTuber has dismissed claims that the pair have already got a contract in the works for a fight. 

Ever since KSI took down Logan Paul in their boxing rematch, he has appeared to be on a collision course to fight Jake Paul. The pair even squared off after Jake defeated AnEsonGib in Miami back in January.  

Since then, there has been intense speculation about an apparent match, with the pair going back and forth in their verbal jabs. Jake has claimed that there is a location and date in the works – even going as far as saying that KSI is trying to avoid getting in the ring to face him.

Jake Paul and KSI faced off after Paul’s win over AnEsonGib in January, further solidifying a potential fight between the two stars.

In a recent Instagram story post, saved by TheBreadBatch, the popular American YouTuber implored the Brit to “stop ducking” and “sign” the contract that has apparently been drawn up.

Paul even took personal jabs at his fellow content creator. “He wants the fight to be in 2021 cause his fat FIFA gaming ass knows he needs time to train,” Jake said, showing off part of their apparent contract.

However, KSI didn’t waste any time in firing back, claiming that he’s “never seen” that contract in his life.

He also disputed the fact of whose name would be first on the marquee – seeing as he is the YouTube champion, after all.

When it comes to the claims about him needing a whole lot of time to train, he even had an answer for that. “You’re acting like a pandemic isn’t happening right now,” added KSI with a whole host of laughing emojis attached.

Now, KSI’s comments aren’t exactly saying that he will never fight Jake, but it doesn’t appear to be happening anytime soon. Matchroom Boxing’s Eddie Hearn has even noted that plans for the fight are on the back burner as he’s got irons in the fire for other professional bouts.

It seems unlikely that the two YouTubers will square off anytime soon, but if they do manage to agree on a deal, you’ll be able to find the latest updates right here.

Twitch streamer confronts DoorDash driver after console war trash talk

Console wars are nothing new to video game enthusiasts. From schoolyard debates to forum threads 500 pages deep, console loyalists have fought tooth and nail since the dawn of time. Now, the battleground has shifted with even DoorDash drivers getting in on the action against customers.

During a Twitch broadcast, streamer Jameskii was playing Minecraft while waiting for DoorDash to deliver his order. Suddenly, he received a text message on his phone.

“Hold on, is my drink here?” he wondered as he grabbed his mobile device. “Oh my God! Oh my God!”

As the streamer stared down at his phone, he could hardly contain his disbelief at the message he received from the driver.

“My food delivery guy just messaged me ‘Xbox is trash as f**k,” he laughed. “I’m not kidding. My f**king DoorDash just messaged me. It says, ‘Hello, DoorDash has arrived with your order’ and the next message is ‘Xbox is trash as f**k.’”

As it turns out, the driver actually tried to call the streamer, but when Jameskii didn’t pick up, he felt the need to trash talk Xbox.

Despite all this confusion and the out of context attack on Microsoft’s console, Jameskii wondered if he should call the driver back.

“Say yeah, PlayStation is better, woo!” his friend suggested as the streamer began to redial the number.

Eventually, someone on the other end picked up. “Alright, what did you say about Xbox?” Jameskii asked point-blank.

After a few moments of silence, the driver doubled down on his earlier comment and shouted, “F**k Xbox!”

The remark had the streamer in stitches and made him burst out laughing at the absurdity of the whole situation.

While console wars have a long history dating beyond even the 90s when Nintendo and Sega duked it out, it’s unlikely that the phenomenon ever reached a point where delivery drivers partake. It just goes to show that we’re living in a strange timeline.
