The two YouTube stars looked destined for a meeting inside the boxing ring to end their long-standing feud, which has gone on since the summer of 2017. Banks had also referred to Paul as “actually human garbage” less than a year later.
Their rivalry heated up again in October 2018, after Banks had some heated tweets about Paul following his fight with KSI. The FaZe Clan member stated that he believed he could “ruin both of these kids with a tweet.”
Yet, despite apparent negotiations to strap on a pair of gloves and go toe-to-toe in the ring, the pair appear to have dropped the beef and moved on.
They were caught shopping in the same store in Hollywood and when they finished up, the pair stepped outside and played up to the cameras - acting as if they were going to throw punches. After getting closer together, each in a Boxing stance, they switched things up and immediately called out rock, paper, scissors.
However, despite Banks taking an early 1-0 lead, things didn’t work out the way he may have planned as Jake completed the reserve sweep to pick up a 2-1 victory.
After their mini-battle of wits was over, Banks explained the reasoning as to why they were together. “We’re just kicking it, we just ran into each other today and decided it’d be funny for the vlog,” he told TheHollywoodFix.
With the pair seemingly burying the hatchet, it appears as if there’s no more need for heated tweets and threats of a fight. Jake Paul has continued to call people out for another foray into Boxing but with Banks now potentially off that list, his choices are becoming more and more limited.
It remains to be seen as to who steps up and rivals Paul for the title of YouTube’s Boxing king and who will stay on the sidelines.
