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.

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.

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.
