Controversial YouTuber Jake Paul called out singer-songwriter Chris Brown for a potential fight after his pay-per-view boxing match in August 2018 - and now, the two have finally faced off, thanks to a charity basketball game held by YouTubers ‘The Ace Family.’
Massively popular family vloggers known as the ACE Family held their annual charity basketball event on June 29, which saw the participation of massive YouTube stars like MrBeast, RiceGum, and even A-List celebrities like Lil Pump and Chris Brown.
This marked a major turning point for Jake Paul, who’d called out the controversial music artist for a potential fight nearly a year ago - and even called him a “bitch” during a following vlog in November 2018.

Thanks to the ACE Family’s charity basketball event, Paul was able to confront Chris Brown face-to-face, leading to some hilarious trash-talk on the court.
“You can hide from me calling you out on the fight, but you can’t hide now,” Paul challenged in the middle of their game at the Los Angeles Staples Center.
Things heated up as Paul attempted to guard Brown just inside the three point line, before Brown hit him with a quick crossover before draining an easy jumper - ultimately throwing Paul’s challenge back in his face without ever saying a word.

Brown went on to score yet another three-pointer in Pauls’ face, with the YouTuber begging him to “please don’t do that again” - a fact that he admitted was pretty embarrassing, after hyping up his skills ahead of the game.
While Paul’s team ended up winning the game, he didn’t get the chance to square off with Brown in the boxing ring, marking yet another failed boxing attempt in light of his beef with rapper Soulja Boy in early 2019.
Although Paul hyped up a potential match with FaZe Banks as well, it seems like Paul’s upcoming opponent in the KSI vs Logan Paul rematch is still up in the air - that is, if the rematch ever gets properly scheduled, in the first place.
The ACE Family’s charity basketball event saw $100,000 raised for The Painted Turtle, a charity that aims to aid children with chronic illnesses, marking a heartwarming end to a heated basketball event.
