Details for the Jake Paul vs AnEsonGib press conference have finally been revealed, after the two YouTubers were officially announced to throw down in the boxing ring at the end of January.

After failing to secure a fight on the KSI vs Logan Paul rematch undercard, younger brother Jake Paul is set to face off with fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib as the main event for their own fight.

Taking place in Miami, Florida, the Jake Paul vs AnEsonGib fight is scheduled for January 30 — but news of a press conference was few and far between, until recently.

DAZN, AnEsonGib - TwitterJake Paul and AnEsonGib are set to touch gloves on January 30.

Influencer management company OP Entertainment revealed details for the press conference on January 3, including a time, date, and streaming information for the event.

What time will the Jake Paul vs AnEsonGib press conference go live?

The YouTubers’ press conference is scheduled for January 8, and will go live at 1 PM PST (9 PM GMT for the United Kingdom).

This marks less than a week until the two face off ahead of their scheduled bout — and with plenty of trash talk already going down between the pair, there’s no telling what explosive insults will be flung at their in-person meeting.

Where can fans watch the Jake Paul vs AnEsonGib press conference?

The January 8 press conference will be streamed via AnEsonGib’s YouTube channel, as well as combat sports streaming platform DAZN, who will also host the bout on their platform on fight night.

With Paul having parted ways with wife Tana Mongeau, it seems like the Team 10 founder is completely focused on his upcoming match, with older brother Logan Paul claiming that Jake was “locked away” training during Christmas, New Years, and even his own birthday.

However, Gib claims that he’s been carrying the entire fight on his back — something that Paul later contested, brewing some high tensions ahead of their conference.

Jake will also likely look to take the fight in wake of his older bro’s loss to KSI in November, putting the Paul family name back on top and kicking off 2020 with a solid start to his own pro boxing career.

KSI calls out Jake Paul after YouTuber KO’s Nate Robinson in boxing bout

It’s been no time at all, but Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji has already called out Jake Paul ahead of their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, saying that after his performance against Nate Robinson, Paul stands no chance.

It was the fight everyone had their eyes on November 28. On the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr, YouTuber Jake Paul was set to bout with NBA star Nate Robinson.

What we got instead was a bloodbath. Robinson was trounced by Paul, getting knocked down multiple times before Paul laid the final blow in the second round. Robinson barely laid a glove on Paul despite coming out all guns blazing.

While millions watched, there was one spectator on the sidelines with more on the line than most ⁠— Jake Paul’s next prospective opponent, KSI.

The YouTuber has already faced off against Paul’s older brother Logan, beating the American not once but twice. Jake fancies his chances a little bit better, but KSI wasn’t impressed by the younger brother’s skills against Robinson.

As soon as the fight ended, KSI already started the war back up with the Pauls. “I saw nothing special from Jake lol. Soon come,” he said on Twitter.

The thinly-veiled threat at Jake Paul is alluding to their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, pending the current global situation.

Paul has been pretty vocal about making sure the fight goes ahead, saying he has a point to prove against the British YouTuber. “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,” he said in September.

While Paul didn’t direct address KSI post-fight ⁠— instead calling out Conor McGregor for a bout ⁠— the rivalry between the two YouTubers is fierce.

One can only hope they do actually make good on their promise and get in the ring.
