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.

James Charles sparks heated beef with rapper Asian Doll over makeup artist fees

YouTube star and makeup mogul James Charles has started some unexpected beef with rapper Asian Doll after she made a divisive tweet over the price some makeup artists charge for their work.

James Charles is known for getting into the occasional Twitter spat with high-profile celebrities; in August 2020, the YouTuber called out music artist Alicia Keys for her then-unreleased skincare line, which he mistakenly interpreted as another celebrity cash-grab in the makeup biz. (This was not the case.)

Now, it seems that Charles has struck up a feud with none other than Dallas-based rapper Asian Doll — the first female rapper to be signed to Gucci Mane’s very own record label, 1017 Eskimo Records.

It all started over a post Asian Doll made on January 15, where she took issue with makeup artists charging hefty fees for their services.

“If you charge over $150 to do a face of makeup, you can go to hell, respectfully,” she wrote.

Charles was quick to clap back: “What a stupid tweet. One foundation can cost $50, artists have to buy EVERY SHADE for their kit, & thats just the first step…Either pay an artist’s rate for their time & skill, do it yourself, OR get it done at a counter and risk looking busted.”

It seems that Charles’ reply has sparked an avalanche of backlash against him from Asian Doll’s fans, with many accusing him of overstepping his bounds.

Charles has apparently messed with the wrong rapper, as Asian Doll was also quick to fire shots at the beauty guru in a series of additional tweets.

“What a dumb a** to be in my business replying to something that has absolutely nothing to do with you. I’m having a debate about HOOD PRICES baby, stay over there in HOLLYWOOD where they having you looking GHOST,” she wrote — most likely referring to the infamous photo of James Charles wearing foundation several shades lighter than his natural skin tone.

“Literally stop robbing the poor,” the rapper added in a now-deleted reply. “All I’m saying is people shouldn’t have to pay over $150 for a face, DATS IT!”

It seems that Asian Doll’s post has stirred up quite the debate regarding the value and pricing of makeup artists’ time and work in her comments section — but James’ involvement in the conversation has sparked another kind of conversation, altogether.
