Jake Paul broke down his fight with Deji in a YouTube video, where he also revealed an upcoming collaboration with another YouTuber and teased his next opponent in the ring.
Paul began the video by addressing fan concerns over his absence. He assured his audience that he had been taking a break since the fight, as well as working on a collaborative project with another personality on the YouTube platform.
Jake stated that his fans likely already knew of the project in question, and showed a gif of YouTube star Shane Dawson - whether jokingly or as an actual tease, we have yet to find out.
However, a collaboration with Shane Dawson wouldn’t be out of place. Dawson has already created a documentary around controversial social media figure and makeup guru Jeffree Star, so a film around Jake Paul would appear to fit in with this trend. The two have also gone back and forth about the idea on Twitter, rendering it a high possibility.
As for Jake’s next opponent, he didn’t say - but he did cite a few figures he’d be down to fight in the rematch card, stating that he would make a full reveal in a future video.
“There’s a lot of people who want to fight me. There’s an NFL player, there’s more YouTubers, there’s some Instagram people who wanna fight me… we’ll see.”
Jake threw down with Deji in the KSI vs Logan Paul fight card on August 25, where he took the win over Deji in the fifth round.
Although Paul didn’t score a knockout in the first round as he predicted, Deji ended up throwing in the towel before the final round could begin.
Jake admitted that the fight marked one of the best days of his life, and that he wants to continue fighting in the future.
