The next YouTube boxing marquee matchup is apparently planned out and well on its way, as Jake Paul has revealed where and when he will be taking on YouTube boxing’s biggest name, Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji.

KSI has led the way for YouTube boxing over the years, with his debut amateur match against Joe Weller setting up for huge matchups against Logan Paul, including one professional fight at Los Angeles’ Staples Center.

Now, Logan’s brother Jake looks to be taking on KSI to avenge his loss and, although details on the fight have been up in the air – including questions over whether it will ever even go ahead – they’ve been as good as confirmed by Jake.

When is Jake Paul vs KSI?

Doing a Q&A on Instagram, one of Jake’s fans asked when his next fight is going to be, and rather than keep things under wraps as you would expect, decided to answer honestly.

He confirmed in his response that there will be a fight after the ongoing global health crisis is resolved and people are allowed to leave their homes, adding that Jake Paul vs. KSI will take place in New York’s iconic Madison Square Garden – home to some of the biggest names in entertainment history.

Madison Square Garden is one of the most prolific venues in the world, and to have a couple of YouTubers boxing in it seems absurd but, considering the great success of KSI vs. Logan Paul 2, it’s no surprise that people wanted to see a little more of what our favorite content creators can do.

Obviously, there’s no telling exactly when people will be free to travel again, so it’s impossible to tell how soon this fight will go ahead, with Jake and KSI themselves likely as much in the dark as their fans are.

At least, though, it gives us a venue, and fans in New York know they’re now in prime position to witness the fight in person.

Elon Musk pleads Overwatch to buff Torbjorn’s turrets

It’s no secret that tech billionaire Elon Musk plays video games, but on October 13, he shocked the internet when he revealed his Overwatch main and how he would buff the hero.

After making a rather random tweet about the “The Illuminaughty” – a clever play on words, YouTuber twomad asked the 49-year-old if he mains Torbjorn in Overwatch.

Regardless of how the weird topic got started, Elon replied saying “um… yes” confirming he does in fact play Blizzard’s hero-based FPS and mains the Swedish engineer.

The unlikely response earned Musk a whopping 26,000 likes. For much of Overwatch’s lifespan, Torb was considered a bit of a joke or throw pick who offered very little benefit on attack.

However, after a major rework, the DPS has grown increasingly stronger and is actually one of the most viable heroes in the game at all levels right now.

Sadly, Musk didn’t state how long he had been playing Overwatch or Torbjorn for that matter, so it’s possible that he had only played when the hero wasn’t as good or only after the big rework happened.

Even the official Overwatch Twitter account decided to get in on the fun and replied to Musk with a picture of a giant Torbjorn turret on Mars.

“We’ve been thinking about this for a while,” they captioned the humorous picture. “Call us.”

Furthermore, Musk went on to explain how he would buff Torbjorn and the ideas were interesting to say the least. “Please buff Torb’s turret!” he exclaimed. “Or maybe 2 weak turrets to allow more strategic degrees of freedom.”

It was certainly an interesting reply and a sign that we could be looking at one of the most ambitious crossovers in history if Overwatch takes Elon up on his idea.

Though it’s unlikely that we’ll see Musk’s ideas make it to the game, but there’s always the Experimental Mode, so it’s possible Elon could end up getting his wish.

Who knows – maybe next time you’re in a game and a player won’t swap off Torb, it may be Elon Musk of all people.
