Jake Paul has suggested that he would someday like to go one-on-one with Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji in the boxing ring, after defeating his YouTube rival Joe Weller. 

KSI has been strongly linked towards another bout with his Jake’s brother, Logan Paul, for quite some time, after their highly anticipated clash in August 2018 ended in a draw. 

However, Jake has now confirmed that he would only clash with the man his brother couldn’t beat, as long as there’s a repeat of what was dubbed as the biggest white collar boxing match of all time. 

@KSI, InstagramWho would come out on top between KSI and Jake Paul?

After successfully defeating Weller in the squared circle, he was asked whether or not he thought KSI only wants to fight him because he would have a better chance of winning. “Exactly, 100 percent” was his response. 

Jake Paul also discussed potential opponents that he could face in the meantime, seemingly edging towards other YouTubers that have a bigger reach – and he’s not talking in boxing terms. 

(For mobile readers, the post-match interview starts at the 3:45 mark in the video below)

“He doesn’t have enough clout,” he responded YouTuber AnEsonGib’s name was mentioned, but Paul certainly seemed interested in one particular opponent – Deandre Cortez ‘Soulja Boy’. 

“I really want to lock down the Soulja Boy thing, though. I think he needs money,” he said, before breaking into laughter. “Yeah, he needs a cheque.”

KSI was quick to respond to the comments on Twitter, suggesting that he will soon release a video review of Weller’s recent defeat. 

Whether or not we will see Jake Paul – or even Logan Paul – take on KSI in the near future remains to be seen, but it will be interesting to see how the latter responds in his response video. Will he issue a challenge? 


Mr Beast gives away $10k in most ridiculous Minecraft challenge yet

YouTube star Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson has given away another massive prize worth $10,000 to one random player in his latest Minecraft survival challenge.

Mr Beast is one of the biggest content creators on YouTube and is well known for his generosity, giving hundreds of thousands of dollars away to strangers in some of his past uploads.

During his latest video on his gaming channel, Mr Beast Gaming, the YouTuber revealed that he would be hosting a bizarre Minecraft challenge with a whopping $10,000 Subway gift card up for grabs.

Mr Beast has hosted plenty of unique challenge videos on his YouTube channel.

In one of his most ridiculous challenges yet, Mr Beast explained that this survival challenge would have plenty of interesting twists and turns before the winner was decided.

While it appeared to start off as a regular Minecraft ‘Hunger Games’ match, Mr Beast did not tell those participating that, instead of the border closing in on them from all sides, lava would begin to fill the map from down below.

This secret change seemed to catch plenty of players off-guard, after many of them immediately trekked down to the mines, in an attempt to gear up with diamond armor and equipment.

Mr Beast, who was spectating all of the action from above, would also spice things up by dropping rare pieces of equipment in front of a group to incentivize more fights.

In another twist, the YouTuber shared that the final player standing would not win anything, and that the full $10,000 Subway gift card would go to the person in 2nd place instead.

The final stage of the challenge was extremely close, with the last few players all falling into the lava at the exact same time. It was AltirixGaming though, the one who managed to claim the $10,000 prize.

Mr Beast has hosted other unique challenges on the sandbox title, such as his recent video where he gathered more players for an epic $50,000 Minecraft building competition.
