It seems like every major YouTuber from across the UK and the USA are currently in Los Angeles in anticipation of the big rematch, set to take place in the Staples Center on November 9, with KSI’s first boxing opponent Joe Weller creating content around the spectacle.

This led to Weller infiltrating an interview Paul was having with another outlet to question him for showing “no respect” in a YouTube upload earlier in the year, showing Weller being knocked out during a sparring session.

KSI/YouTubeJoe Weller took part in the first YouTube boxing fight, losing to KSI in London’s Copper Box Arena.

Asking why he put his video out the day before their agreed date, the former-Disney star simply said “I do what I want,” before telling Weller that “at that time, I didn’t have respect for you.”

When Weller starts to question his judgment and why he would choose not to respect people like that, Paul gets heated and accuses Weller of trying to make him look stupid in the interview.

The two continue to act slightly hostile towards each other, with Weller eventually questioning whether Jake would be acting in this way if there were no cameras around.

Paul, naturally, defended himself, saying that he’s the same person on- and off-camera, calling Weller “childish” for being “upset at what time videos are posted at.”

The pair eventually have a chat off-camera, and Joe said that Paul was different backstage, telling him he respects him and loves his content. Weller says he believes that they’re cool but he’ll just let him “do what he wants to do.”

With both internet personalities taking to the ring for the first two YouTube boxing events, they’re evidently not afraid of physical confrontation, so maybe a match between these two could be on the cards one day.

Internet personalities Lexi Rivera and Ben Azelart have explained why they broke up after three years together, in an emotional video posted to YouTube.

Lexi Rivera is known in association with her brother Brent who is one of TikTok’s biggest creators with 35 million followers, while Lexi herself has more than 14 million followers on the app. The siblings also have a combined 19.5 million subscribers on YouTube.

Ben Azelart is also heavily associated with the siblings and has himself built up a huge following of 11 million followers on TikTok. But fans were devastated to find out this week that the duo were no longer a couple.

Lexi and Ben posted a video explaining why, saying that they thought they owed their fans the truth. Lexi said: “I have so much respect for Ben and he’s like literally one of the best people I’ve ever met in my entire life.” Ben responded, “I mean the same goes for me, Lexi is one of the nicest, sweetest, funniest people I’ve ever met.”

Addressing their viewers, Lexi explained why it took so long for them to officially break the news: “I know that it’s been super confusing for you guys and that is because it’s been just as confusing for us we’ve been very just on and off again and I don’t think we were really sure what we wanted to do until now.

“Having a relationship is one thing, but having a relationship online is a completely different story and it was very confusing for us. Honestly, it wasn’t easy being young like we were 15 and 16.

Lexi went on to say that the relationship no longer made them both happy. “We both had so much fun doing it, but I think as years went on it just became a little too complicated…I think what was hard is we want to make you guys happy as well as make ourselves happy.

“Ultimately we just didn’t do both and I think what’s most important was focusing on ourselves for now.”

Lexi and Ben finished by saying that they’re not parting ways forever and that they both felt it was just the wrong time to be together.
