YouTube star and Team 10 founder Jake Paul is gearing up for his first-ever professional boxing debut against AnEsonGib — something that isn’t as “boring” as vlogging has become for the internet celeb, apparently.

While Paul has previously expressed a desire to move away from YouTube in light of his professional fighting career, he delved deeper into the topic on January 14, during a mini-documentary uploaded in partnership with Matchroom Boxing.

In the doc, the YouTuber took fans through his current training camp with coach and former boxing pro “Sugar” Shane Mosley, which included everything from uphill bear crawls to intense sprints at high altitude.

YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul gave fans an inside look at his training camp with “Sugar” Shane Mosley.

During a quiet moment in the hot tub, Paul explained that he’s come to find YouTube “boring,” claiming that the sport of boxing excites him more in light of the many opportunities its apparent rebirth might bring for internet stars.

“When you’re progressing at something, that’s always like, when you’re having the most fun,” he explained. “If you’re doing something… you keep on doing it, it’s the same exact thing, then it just gets old. It’s kind of what YouTube was for me. Post every day for two years straight. Cool. Get five million views, get ten million views. ..it’s just like alright, cool, I’ve done this.”

Paul claimed that the sport of boxing is an “untapped vertical” in regards to profit for big-name YouTubers.

In comparison, the youngest Paul brother finds greater allure in boxing, calling the sport an “untapped vertical” ripe for the taking in terms of content and profit.

“There’s a huge lane for ‘celebrities’ or whatever you want to call us to make a lot of f**king noise and sell tickets,” he continued. “At the end of the day it’s a f**king business, and if we can sell the most tickets, we’re gonna make the most money and draw the most fans.”

Of course, Paul couldn’t finish out the video without calling out his opponent, AnEsonGib, reminding him that “judgement day is coming” ahead of their January 30 bout in Miami, Florida.

Whether Paul will come out victorious remains to be seen, but both he and brother Logan are hellbent on becoming pro fighters, come hell or high water — even if they can’t ever leave their YouTube roots behind, for good.

Twitch streamer Jadeyanh terrified after stalker hijacks broadcast

Twitch star Jadeyanh had a terrifying night after a stalker kept harassing her by ordering food and even calling the police to her house.

The Germany-based streamer has quite an audience on the platform boasting over 200,000 followers. Now, it seems like one of them has begun to harass the Twitch personality.

During a November 23 broadcast, the streamer’s door began to ring prompting her to go answer it. While she didn’t take the camera with her, she soon revealed food she never ordered was delivered.

“Okay, I guess you’re watching,” she began, addressing her stalker directly. “I have a stalker and that person keeps ordering food for me. This is now the third time the person did that. Officially, please stop doing that.”

As it turns out, the individual had previously ordered 25 pizzas and had them delivered to Jadeyanh’s house.

“I’m shaking. I haven’t left my apartment in days because I’m terrified of doing my groceries,” she added. “So please, stop doing that. I feel like I’m in a prison.”

The streamer went on to explain that her neighbor, who is also a follower, sometimes opens up her packages without her consent. Now, she has another follower who is harassing her with food.

As she took a sip of her drink, her doorbell started ringing so she got up to answer it, but couldn’t bring herself to open the door because the light outside wasn’t on.

Eventually, right before Jadeyanh ended the stream, firefighters showed up at her door because someone told them there was a gas leak and then the police were coming.

“I don’t know who the f**k you are, but it’s your number you called them with and we’re going to get your f**king ass, you dumbass!” she exclaimed. “What the f**k is wrong with you? 25 pizzas! Twenty f**king five!”

At this point, Jadeyanh was so distressed she decided to end the stream, but soon after on Twitter revealed that since she did, six more deliveries have come for her.

“I was stalked when I was living with my grandparents. I’m being stalked in my new apartment after only 2 months of living here. I just want to rest. I’m so tired of everything,” she said in a follow-up tweet.

Hopefully, the police can get to the bottom of this so the streamer can finally start to feel safe again and not have her broadcasts ruined by stalkers.
