YouTube stars Jake Paul and AnEsonGib threw down in their first-ever professional boxing match on January 30, adding an entirely new chapter to the already explosive storyline of YouTube fighting.

After over a month of back-and-forth banter, British content creator AnEsonGib and Team 10’s Jake Paul met in the ring to settle their differences once and for all, with Paul coming out on top by TKO.

Their Miami-based fight ended in the very first round, with Paul dropping Gib three times with his jab, alone. As Gib lost his footing due to his unique crouching stance, Jake Paul was able to use his consistent training in Big Bear, CA to end their grudge in a jaw-dropping performance.

With Paul under the guidance of former professional boxer “Sugar” Shane Mosely and Gib being coached by Viddal Riley, it’s safe to say that both social media stars brought the pain to their January 30 meeting — but Paul’s victory comes as little surprise to fans, considering his infamous grudge with rival KSI.

Since KSI won his 2019 rematch against Logan Paul, Jake is seeking out revenge for his older brother’s loss; and as KSI ultimately agreed to a bout with Jake should he defeat Gib, it seems like he’s got yet another fight with the Paul brothers coming his way.

“That was lit,” Jake admitted after his win. “I caught the boxing bug. I put the work in, and I’m in love with this sport. My power, my speed took him out in the first round.”

Having referred to his bout against Gib as nothing more than a “doormat” on his quest to defeat KSI, it looks like his next fight is already determined, although its exact logistics have yet to be announced at the time of writing.

That’s not all: Paul even got into a post-fight kerfuffle with KSI that saw the two go head to head in a heated exchange that nearly got physical, with both YouTubers being forced away in a confrontation that promises for another explosive fight between them at a later date.

Taking place on yet another all-pro fight card, Jake Paul vs AnEsonGib continues YouTube’s foray into the world of professional fighting — and it doesn’t look like online entertainers will be giving up the sport anytime soon.
