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.

xQc’s attempt to weed out Mario Kart stream snipers goes hilariously wrong

Stream snipers are up there with some of the most annoying things that streamers have to deal with, but Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel couldn’t stop laughing when he tried uncovering them in a Mario Kart broadcast.

As far as stream snipers go, xQc has got to be one of the most affected on Twitch, but that’s almost to be expected when you’re one of the most popular names on the platform.

No matter what he’s playing or the attempts he makes to keep himself hidden, xQc will always have multiple snipers coming after him and hunting him down in-game.

Now, it turns out even Mario Kart isn’t a safe space for him, as he found out in hilarious fashion during his January 21 stream.

xQc has become arguably the biggest name on Twitch.

While streaming the iconic animated racing game, the Canadian star was becoming increasingly suspicious of how many stream snipers he was being swarmed by throughout the races.

So, before a race started, he took it upon himself to speak to his stream and ask them not to move forward if they’re stream sniping. “Guys, Hold B, so you at least don’t go forward,” he asked of those who were listening. Then, as it started up, he reiterated the point once more, urging snipers to not go forward.

Expecting maybe a small handful of the other players to stay still, xQc switched to the back camera — and when the race started, eight of the 11 opposing players started hopping around him at the start line, clearly having fun at his expense.

Luckily, xQc saw the funny side, immediately dropping his head and laughing before backing out of the race, unable to speak through the laughter.

Simply saying that he’s “done” and cracking up at the “bulls**t” he had to endure, even xQc couldn’t be mad at how his games were ruined, in disbelief at the level of commitment his viewers showed.

While stream snipers in games such as Warzone, Fortnite and others must get increasingly frustrating, it’s impossible not to see the funny side of something like this — even if it does cost you some Grand Prix wins.
