Jake Paul says fight with KSI will “100% happen”

YouTube star Jake Paul is more than an influencer; the social media mogul has also taken his talents to the boxing ring, where he hopes to face off with rival KSI in a fight that he claims will “100% happen.”

For those out of the loop, KSI and the Paul brothers have a historied rivalry. From the initial KSI vs Logan Paul boxing match in 2018 to their final professional bout in 2019, the two have famously butted heads; but KSI’s grudge isn’t limited to Logan, alone.

The British YouTuber has expressed a particular disdain for Jake, which he has returned in kind. This mutual hatred came to a head after his first-round victory over AnEsonGib in January, where the two quite literally butted heads in what seemed to be a promise for their own forthcoming fight.

However, thanks to the current global health crisis and travel restrictions, it seems that Jake Paul vs KSI has been put on hold indefinitely; but Jake isn’t taking “no” for an answer.

In a September 30 episode of the Mom’s Basement podcast, he claimed that his bout with KSI is definitely going to happen, in foul or fair weather.

“It has to happen,” Paul said of the matter. “KSI vs Jake Paul is 100% gonna happen. If I die without that happening, I would be so upset. It has to happen, for the culture.”

That’s not all; he also hit out at KSI’s music, which, admittedly, isn’t a super surprising development, considering the two have been dunking on each other’s songs for quite some time now.

“KSI has all features,” he continued. “I don’t even think his fans like his music. I think they just save the song because it’s the other guy on it that’s carrying him. So if you build your whole career off of that, then when you drop a song by yourself, it’s just gonna fall flat.”

While older brother Logan has been rumored to fight Floyd Mayweather in a potential exhibition match — even claiming he’s started up training camp — Jake is slated to fight on the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr., but it doesn’t seem like this star-studded affair comes close to the fire he feels for a possible fight with his long-term rival across the pond.

Call of Duty

Dr Disrespect explains how Black Ops Cold War could be “so much more fun”

Dr Disrespect has chimed in on the much-maligned SBMM system used in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and other titles, and although he doesn’t blame Treyarch, the Doc is less than impressed with the system and wants it removed.

Dr Disrespect is all about violence, speed, and momentum. However, he hasn’t been able to spread his wings in Black Ops Cold War and fly like the eagle he was born to be, and he blames it all on SBMM.

SBMM, which stands for skill-based matchmaking, is a system used in many popular games to try and balance out lobbies.

Some players and developers think it’s a good thing, but many others believe it tends to ‘punish’ higher-skilled players like Dr Disrespect. It throws them into lobbies with other elite players, which results in ‘sweaty’ games where everyone is good and trying really hard to win.

The game becomes more serious and less casual, and it demands more effort, which is less than ideal for streamers like the Doc, who want to entertain.

Treyarch
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is one of many games that uses SBMM.

Dr Disrespect has never been one to hold his tongue and mince his words on matters important to him. In his latest stream, he had a frustrating time playing Black Ops Cold War due to SBMM and shared his thoughts.

Man, that SBMM, what a… what a…” he said, struggling to find the words to summarize his rage. “SBMM results to exact same fight every single time.” It’s a sentiment shared by players from many different games and skill brackets.

“It has nothing to do with… game design,” he added.

“Treyarch knocks it out the park… I just think it has something to do with a lot of the technical stuff… I would take that tech out.”

Dr Disrespect isn’t one to hold back on his opinions, especially when it comes to games.

Dr Disrespect knows that it isn’t Treyarchs fault. Instead, he refers to a “third-party” who works with them and “manages all the data and everything.” He says, “they’re able to make all these tweaks, and all that stuff,” and the fact that SBMM is implemented at all is “such a bummer.”

“I want some sheep in my lobbies,” he said. “I want a couple triple peekers. The game could like just be so much more fun. I don’t understand why they have it.”

Dr Disrespect isn’t the first person to express his concerns about SBMM, and he won’t be the last. However, the Doc is a pillar in the gaming community. He has also been involved in some behind-the-scenes level design, so his opinion has some weight.

Either way, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is still loads of fun. SBMM might even help you become a better player if you’re willing to embrace it.
