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.

Streamers who are part of Dream’s SMP Minecraft server such as TommyInnit, Tubbo, Quackity, and more, are topping the list of the fastest growing streamers on Twitch following an SMP finale stream.

The Minecraft community has experienced a giant surge in popularity throughout the past year, with the 2011 game providing a central focus for a huge number of streamers who have seen a boost in their follower count recently.

Largely this resurgence in popularity is due to the huge multi-streamer server named the ‘Dream SMP.’ Dream is a popular Minecraft speedrunner and YouTuber, and while the SMP (survival multiplayer server) started off as a simple fun server, it quickly progressed into remarkably detailed roleplay and lore, which has captivated fans across the world.

The Dream SMP is full of many hugely popular streamers and YouTubers.

The story of the Dream SMP features wars, betrayal, revolutions, and more, and these plotlines are acted out and developed by a huge host of streamers who have all appeared in the server or in content relating to the server.

Dream SMP dominate fastest-growing channels

Following a ‘finale’ stream that saw an end to part of the developing story, many of these Dream SMP streamers are shooting to the top of the ranks on Twitch, dominating the fastest-growing streamers list.

According to SullyGnome, 16-year-old Tommy is the fastest-growing account on the platform, with his average viewers at a whopping 300,000. This follows his finale stream in which he peaked at around 650,000 viewers.

Close behind Tommy, and all within the top ten fastest-growing streamers for the seven days leading up to January 24, are fellow SMP streamers awesamdude, Tubbo, RanbooLive, Quackity, Foolish Gamers, Sapnap, and Philza.

To see this list dominated by one group of people is certainly a testament to the growing popularity of the Dream SMP group. With so many creators on board, the amount of content is practically endless, and clearly a huge amount of work has gone into developing the lore.

Now this finale has passed, fans will be keen to know what’s going to happen next in the world of the Dream SMP, and there’s no doubt that this interest will provide an even bigger boost in numbers for these streamers.
