Controversial YouTuber Jake Paul has revealed who he hopes to be next boxing opponent, as his beef with rapper Soulja Boy continues to escalate.

Paul uploaded an image to his Instagram story on February 20, in which he admitted that he hopes to fight KSI in the boxing ring.

“I want nothing more in life than for this to happen,” Paul said of the possibility, in response to TheBreadBatch’s post on the subject.

A legitimate fight between the two YouTubers may not be out of the question, either; KSI likewise expressed a desire to fight Jake, should he defeat Logan Paul during their rematch in November 2019.

However, Paul’s potential fight with KSI may have to wait, as the YouTuber is currently beefing with rapper Soulja Boy over social media – and their fight could make it to the boxing ring.

Paul tagged Soulja in a tweet on February 1, where he challenged the rapper to a boxing match.

Soulja replied to Paul’s tweet in kind, writing, “Boy, I’ll knock you out,” in response.

The two went on to have a heated conversation over Instagram live, where Soulja put a whopping $20 million on their bout – to which Paul responded by expressing some doubt that the rapper actually had the cash in question.

Since then, Paul has agreed to match Soulja’s $20 million on their fight, with Soulja claiming that the match is definitely “happening” – as well as calling Paul a “bitch” in the process.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
