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.

Twitch streamer banned after being denied partnership over age

Twitch streamer AverageHarry has been permanently banned after his partnership application was denied, and they discovered he allegedly signed up while under the age of 13.

AverageHarry has been through a bit of a roller-coaster ride lately. It started back in October 2020 when a video of him getting mocked by strangers and crying on stream went viral.

Since then, his popularity skyrocketed, and he applied to become a Twitch partnered streamer. However, the application was denied in January 2021 after discovering he made the account when he was less than 13 years old, which didn’t align with his account details.

But the drama doesn’t end there. Twitch also said he could lose access to his account because of the restriction. Now, it appears they have doubled down on that claim and made it happen.

Twitch: AverageHarry
AverageHarry went viral after some strangers laughed at him in public while he was streaming.

“I have just been permabanned on Twitch,” said AverageHarry. “For anyone wondering, this is why. He shared a previous tweet, which included a screenshot of the email he received when they denied his application.

“You’ve listed your age as 15, although this doesn’t appear to align with your account details,” said Twitch. “Please get in touch with Twitch support in order to see whether you can update your birthday to be accurate. Otherwise, you may need to make a new account with correct details.”

However, AverageHarry hasn’t given up yet. “I’ll have a video out tomorrow talking about it all,” he said. “I am allowed to make another account, but I have just lost nearly 90k followers.”

He might try and have the ban overturned, which could happen if enough people rally behind him. And it seems like they are, with many people sharing their support on social media. “He genuinely seemed like a good kid,” wrote one user. “Hope he makes a new account and stuff.”

“That Twitch account was made by his parents and given to him by his parents after he was 13 and provided proof for that,” wrote another. “But [he] still got his account removed. [I] hope the best for him.”

In the end, though, Twitch is treating it as a serious matter and won’t want to set a precedent. So, it will be interesting to see what happens and whether their decision is final.
