Popular YouTuber Joe Weller has been under fire after it was claimed he was paid to lose a boxing sparring session against Jake Paul, but the British star has now responded.

Weller, who made his boxing debut against Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji, travelled to Paul’s residence for a sparring session that both YouTube stars agreed would make great content.

It was Paul who reigned victorious, hitting Weller with a well-timed body shot as the first round came to a close which left the Englishman unable to continue, sparking celebration from Paul’s vast entourage.

The fight has been widely criticized with Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem suggesting that he might have been paid to lose the fight and KSI questioned why Weller would walk into Paul’s ‘trap’ as well as featuring in a diss track aimed at himself.

Eager to address the fake fight claims, Weller released a video on his YouTube channel stating that he did take a hard hit and wasn’t paid to lose.

“If someone was going to fake a boxing match, you’d do it with a convincing knockout punch,” he said. “Not something that just looks shit.”

KSI said in his reaction video that Weller should have simply ignored Paul’s request for sparring session but Weller believes that would have been “boring”.

He said: “That’s just boring. I liked the idea of going to his back garden and fucking going for it.

“Most people would have pussied out of that, but who gives a fuck.”

YOUTUBE/JOE WELLERJoe Weller feels that YouTube drama isn’t all what it’s made out to be.

Weller also had some choice words for KSI’s brother Oladeji ‘Deji’ Olatunji who also released a reaction video to the fight and mocked Weller for featuring in Paul’s diss track video.

He claimed that the drama between Paul and Deji – who fought on the same card as KSI’s fight with Logan Paul – wasn’t what it was made out to be.

“Jake said that him and Deji text – they sorted it all out after the fight,” Weller said. “All of this YouTube drama and diss tracks – it’s all for the cameras. It’s not as deep as it’s made out to be.”

Weller went on to criticize Paul, after he released his video a day before the pair had agreed to, but admitted he may have done the same thing if the tables were turned.

He also said that Paul manipulated the filming of the music video and placed it before the fight to make him look like “his bitch”.

Despite officially retiring from boxing in his version of the fight, Weller might well be interested in entering the ring again should the right opponent present themselves.


Asmongold defends Forsen after learning the real reason for Twitch ban

Popular Twitch star ‘Asmongold’ went to bat for fellow streamer Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors after the Swede was banned from the platform on November 26.

At first, no one knew the real reason for Forsen’s ban, with some thinking it may have been DMCA-related. However, viewers soon discovered that for a brief moment in a recent broadcast he showed a gif of a horse in a very inappropriate scene.

Despite this, Asmongold decided to stick up for Forsen during his own broadcast and call out Twitch for banning him due to an honest mistake.

“How the f**k is that going to be TOS? If…I don’t understand. You’ve got other people and they’re going around showing Animal Planet,” he explained. “Like you see literal animals killing each other, but you see a horse’s d**k?”

To this, Asmongold makes an interesting point. There are streams on Twitch that document animals in the wild and they can get into some rather freaky situations that, while natural, aren’t exactly the kind of thing you’d show your boss.

“Listen, horses don’t wear clothes, you know that?” the streamer sarcastically stated. “So, if you look at a horse, you’re going to see their d**k. Like, that’s all there is to it. It’s weird, man.”

However, right after making this argument, the streamer learned that it wasn’t just the horse that got Forsen banned, but the girl who was in the gif with the animal that changed the whole conversation. Briefly, anyway.

“Okay, that’s a little bit different,” he confessed. “It’s a little bit more than what I thought it was.”

Despite this, Asmongold still defended Forsen for the mistake of showing the gif. “I don’t think it’s really that big of a deal. You show that for like a second, right? Cause it’s an accident.”

According to the popular World of Warcraft player, one second of footage shouldn’t determine a whole Twitch career. “That seems stupid to me,” he added. “But you know, here we are.”

Unfortunately for Forsen, the streamer says this time, his ban is indefinite and it’s unclear when, if ever, he will be unbanned.

Hopefully, with Asmongold speaking out, Twitch can agree to let this incident slide and let Fors back on the platform so he can stream again.
