Joe Weller and JJ ‘KSI’ Olatunji have a well-storied history together, from friends, to enemies, to something in between. But now, Weller has revealed the real reason behind a secret parking lot fight they had before their February 2018 boxing match.

For a short while, KSI and Joe Weller were some of the biggest names on YouTube, especially in the lead up and aftermath of their boxing match.

The fight saw Olatunji make headlines as winner by Technical Knockout about 90 seconds in, but in 2019 he revealed it wasn’t actually their first fight — and they had gone at it before.

Weller has slowly managed to bounce back from his KSI loss and worked in boxing since — including with Sky at KSI vs Logan Paul 2 and doing ads with Anthony Joshua.

At the time, KSI said that their first fight — which took place off-camera in an underground London parking lot — was due to beef over a girl that he had relations with who Joe allegedly had feelings for.

Now, Weller himself has gone on JaackMaate’s Happy Hour podcast to reveal what really happened way before the idea for the official fight had even been penned.

“I was in my Mini Cooper and he was in his Porsche,” Weller said, “and he thinks it’s funny to go up to my car and slowly try to push it with his car. He’s probably doing more damage to his car, but obviously I’m f**king livid.”

He continued: “We get out and I literally go up to him and just floor him. I literally just grab him and shove him to the floor… It wasn’t really a fight, more just like… ‘don’t’.”

Joe goes on to discuss the initial implication made by KSI that it was over a girl, saying that it wasn’t and had nothing to do with her, but also added that there was always an “alpha male” type of rivalry between the two of them.

The funny thing is, both KSI and Weller agree that the latter won that first fight — but had he got the win when it mattered, inside the ring, the YouTube landscape could look pretty different right now.


LS reveals how xQc reached out to him during T1 fans backlash

Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare has revealed that Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel reached out to him during the T1 backlash offering his support and advice.

T1’s accidental leak that revealed LS was set to be the organization’s new League of Legends coach resulted in a wave of backlash against both parties.

Fans of the organization opted to send unjustifiable racial and homophobic abuse towards LS, as well as doxxing his grandmother and sending packages to her address. T1, from an outside perspective, did not handle the situation appropriately and seemingly offered little support to LS during this period.

This resulted in LS disabling his Twitter and going completely dark for a short period of time. This was no doubt due to the amount of hate and criticism he was receiving from T1 fans. One person who reached to support him was huge Twitch personality xQc.

xQc has over four million followers on Twitch.

xQc reached out to LS during T1 fans backlash

LS revealed on stream that the Twitch personality reached out to him in support. “Before I disabled my Twitter and went dark on everything, xQc was one of the very few people who reached out to me,” he said.

It was obvious LS was surprised he had reached out to him due to the streamer’s popularity: “Despite the fact that I’m like an insect compared to him, in terms of like brand and size and everything, it’s very nice.”

LS repeated multiple times that xQc is a “real one”, showing his appreciation for his support and care.

It’s clear that xQc reaching out to LS really meant a lot to him and helped him get through the difficult patch. Sometimes, just reaching out to somebody going through a hard time can make a world of difference.

Now, it’s just great to see LS back on track with the League of Legends content and streaming again.
