Following the shocking results of KSI vs Logan Paul 2 on November 9, Jake Paul has claimed his brother’s loss was “rigged” and explained how it’s “bullsh*t” if the decision isn’t overturned. 

KSI faced off against Logan Paul in Los Angeles, CA on November 9, as the two YouTube stars met in the boxing ring for a rematch, after their first bout in 2018 ended in a tie. 

However just like the first match, the results were shocking when Logan lost after being deducted two-points in a nail-biter finish. Now, his younger brother has come to his defense.

Jake Paul says the results were “rigged”

After the event wrapped up and KSI was declared the winner by a split decision, Jake Paul spoke to the press. “I think the committee should contest it,” he argued. “And if they don’t flip that decision, then it’s bullsh*t!”

The YouTuber went a step further, and shockingly claimed the whole sport of boxing is fake. “I’ve been in this sport for a year now. I shouldn’t be saying this. But all this f*cking sh*t is rigged!”

The younger Paul brother then explained why he felt these events are not fair. “You see people wining and dining each other. You see people at Staples Center. Who was at the Staples Center last night with KSI?” he asked.

While it’s not entirely clear who he’s talking about due to noise in the background, the YouTuber seemed to be suggesting that KSI spent time with someone involved in the event.

While his younger brother doesn’t seem too happy with the results, Logan Paul has so far been gracious about his loss, and has not made any claims of the results being unfair. When the match ended, KSI and the YouTuber shook hands, and exchanged compliments, burying their feud.

Logan even posted on his Twitter on November 10 to praise KSI, and congratulated him on his victory. “Two random kids who made stupid videos turned into professional boxers, sold out the Staples Center. Congrats to the champ, KSI. I can’t wait to see what you do next!” he said.

While it remains to be seen if the YouTube star will change his mind on the results after having time to analyze the fight, for the time being he seems to be keeping his head high.

Love them or hate them, there is no denying that KSI and Logan Paul got millions of people to tune in, and most of the reactions of the fight have been positive. So both came out as winners in the end.

Dr Disrespect calls out Activision & Warzone tourney admins for hacker drama

Following scandal over a disqualified cheater in a Warzone tournament, Dr Disrespect is calling out Activision’s lack of an anti-cheat and Twitch Rivals’ lack of a formal process for investigating hacks.

In hours of drama that rocked the competitive Call of Duty: Warzone community, a smaller streamer, ‘Metzy_B,’ was accused of cheating during the $250K Twitch Rivals Doritos Bowl tournament. Prior to the final match of the event, his team was disqualified by tournament admins and stripped of any chance at tournament earnings.

Twitch Rivals have remained relatively quiet on the issue, practically ignoring it during the broadcast and offering up a minimally worded explanation over Twitter. In their explanation, the admins simply explained that Metzy “was ruled to be cheating” and subsequently “removed from the event.”

With that lack of transparency, rumors and accusations flew. Former Call of Duty League pro, one of the highest Warzone earners currently, Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren spent hours interrogating the accused and having a friend take control of Metzy’s PC to dive through his logs for any proof of hacks. This all leads to Dr Disrespect asserting that, with or without an Activision anti-cheat, tournament organizers need to do better.

As shared by ‘WickedGoodGames,’ the Two-Time has a clear perspective on this issue. If the developers can’t institute an effective anti-cheat, then every single tournament must “define a process in finding out if he is [cheating] or not … obviously outside of the whole Call of Duty not having an anti-cheat kind of software built in.”

The drama was obviously divisive, as most participants in the tournament believed Metzy (and others) to be cheating, while others weren’t so sure. With no one knowing precisely how Twitch handled the situation, the community was left to investigate themselves.

As Dr Disrespect has heard, the “purple snakes” disqualified Metzy based on “a couple suspicious clips” and without asking to check his computer. This is echoed by the accused himself, who has since commended Tommey for trying to figure out what the admins had failed to.

That account goes directly against others, as fellow competitor BobbyPoff reacted by alleging that Metzy was, in fact, originally reluctant to display his task manager logs.

While the truth may be impossible to find at this point, as Twitch Rivals have given no explanation of their process and any number of files could have been deleted by the time Tommey got access, Dr Disrespect’s point is proven by the drama.

If Activision can’t deliver a functioning anti-cheat and tournament organizers don’t have a strict, transparent policy for hackers — then community infighting over a “grey area” is unavoidable.
