Jake Paul responds to undefeated boxer Ryan Garcia’s fight challenge

Jake Paul has responded to undefeated pro boxer Ryan Garcia’s Tweet in which he said he wanted to fight Jake, following the announcement that his brother Logan Paul has signed a contract to fight boxing legend Floyd Mayweather. 

The collision of the YouTube world and the pro-boxing world is one that no one could have predicted ten years ago, but the huge profits garnered from YouTuber KSI’s fight with Joe Weller in 2018 and he’s even bigger fight with Logan Paul later that year have proven the unlikely collaboration to be a lucrative one.

Challenging people to fight has in recent years become somewhat of a trend among the influencer community.

In August even TikTok star Bryce Hall claimed he tried to set up a fight with Hype House leader Thomas Petrou, something that never came to fruition.

Following the September 16 announcement that Logan Paul and retired boxer Floyd Mayweather had agreed to a fight contract, it became clear that the two worlds were truly merged, and that it’s no longer exclusively a YouTuber vs YouTuber match format.

This clearly tempted American professional boxer Ryan Garcia to get involved, taking to Twitter on September 19 to issue a new challenge. “If Mayweather can fight Logan Paul then I’m fighting Jake Paul.”

Jake did not back down in the face of a challenge from the undefeated champion, however, instead slamming him with “it’s a little too early for your first loss peewee.” Ryan was unfazed by the belittling comment, simply coming back with “if he dies, he dies.”

If they were to fight, it wouldn’t be Jake’s first time in the ring. He holds wins over UK YouTuber’s Deji and AnEsonGib – and he’s also scheduled to fight former NBA first-rounder Nate Robinson.

Perhaps this fiery exchange will result in an additional pair of fighters added to the Paul vs Mayweather event, giving Jake another chance to step into the ring and prove his growing skills.


Alexandra Botez responds to creepy Twitch viewer asking to see her feet

Twitch streamer and chess guru Alexandra Botez wasn’t going to put up with trolls asking to see her feet during a live stream.

During the broadcast, as Botez was challenging players in chess, a viewer decided to ask the streamer if they could see her feet – something that promoted a hilarious response from Alexandra.

“Sir, you’re not seeing… you know what,” the frustrated streamer began, before pausing with a smirk. “I’m going to show you what’s on my feet, and you’re going to stop asking.”

With that, the 25-year-old lifted up her shoe and showed it off in front of the camera.

“I’m wearing these clogs, okay? This is all you need to know. And if you would ask me that in person, I would turn into Romanian Botez,” she added.

Next, Alexandra pretended to smack the person with her clog while rambling on in Romanian.

“And I would hit you in the head with my shoe,” she warned. “And you wouldn’t see feet because your vision would be blurry.”

Amusingly, after that whole rant, the streamer went right back into challenging whoever she wanted to play next, as if the whole foot fiasco never even happened.

Fans have requested feet before

This isn’t the first time that Alexandra has been asked to show her feet, oddly enough. Earlier in 2020, a viewer donated $3 and asked the streamer to reveal her highly fetishized body part.

Instead of showing them off, however, she simply drew a foot on a piece of paper and held it up for the camera, which confused her two on-stream guests.

“Someone donated to show feet,” she explained, prompting some laughs in the chat.

While Botez has handled the foot remarks quite well thus far, the next time someone dares to ask the chess queen to slip off her shoes to expose her feet, they could be getting a clog to the skull.
