YouTube star Jake Paul’s highly-anticipated boxing match against former NBA pro Nate Robinson will reportedly not be taking place on September 12, and has instead been postponed to November.

Jake Paul is more than an online entertainer; the Team 10 founder has taken his talents to the boxing ring, and has already boasts two victories in his white-collar-turned-professional career.

After taking out AnEsonGib in his first-ever pro boxing match, Paul was slated to face off against none other than former NBA point guard Nate Robinson on one of the biggest fight cards to date — Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr.

Getting a spot on such a massive event was nothing short of legendary to the YouTuber, who made sure to say so via a number of social media posts; but now, it looks like both he and his fans will have to wait for his next stint in the ring.

When is Jake Paul vs Nate Robinson?

According to reports by The Ring’s Ryan O’Hara, Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr has been rescheduled for November 28 — over two months from the bout’s initial date and just two days after Thanksgiving.

The reason for this rescheduling isn’t due to current global events, either, as many had initially suspected; rather, Tyson’s team felt they could maximize revenue by pushing back the date, a decision that was also agreed upon by Jones.

Neither Robinson nor Paul have yet to comment on the match’s rescheduling, which comes just a week after Paul’s home was raided by the FBI over his appearance at a May 30 looting in Scottsdale, Arizona.

While fans are still waiting for further information regarding the situation, older brother Logan Paul has assured viewers that he is physically safe and has the full support of the Paul family.

TheGrefg breaks Ninja’s world record for most-viewed Twitch stream

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
