YouTube sensation JJ ‘KSI’ Olatunji has doubled down on his promise to fight Jake Paul, provided the American can overcome his challenge to defeat AnEsonGib.

YouTubers stepping into the boxing ring and settling their differences has been all the rage since KSI and Joe Weller kicked things off back in February of 2018, before the former kicked it up another notch by defeating his then-rival.

Since then, KSI has remained at the top of the mountain, slugging out a draw in his first fight with Logan Paul before defeating the popular YouTuber in their long-awaited rematch that was held at the Staples Centre. Yet, KSI could very well look to do the double over the Paul family following Jake’s upcoming fight.

Logan Paul has already been giving Jake advice ahead of his second boxing match.

While Logan has switched his focus to possibly fighting NFL star Antonio Brown, his brother Jake has stuck in the world of YouTube boxing, getting ready to finally take on AnEsonGib. 

If the Paul brother can beat the popular British YouTuber, he and KSI have already floated the possibility of donning the gloves once again and making another fight happen – which the latter has doubled down on making happen. 

“I don’t like Jake and I think the whole world doesn’t like Jake. If he does manage to get past the big Gibber then yes, I will fight Jake 100%,” he said, per an Instagram post from TheBreadBatch

Offering up a prediction for the fight, though, KSI isn’t all that confident that the Paul brother can live up to his end of the deal by taking down Gib.

“But, I mean, that’s not going to happen (Jake winning),” he added. “I don’t think he’s ready for Gib at all and it’s going to show on January 30th. I see Gib winning this hands down and that will be the end of the Pauls.”

Whether or not KSI will be proven wrong by Jake remains to be seen, but a win from him would be huge, especially considering the back-and-forth leading up the bout.

Fans don’t have all that long to wait, however, as Jake and Gib will square off on Matchroom Boxing’s January 30th event, live from Miami, Florida.


Greekgodx banned from Twitch for second time

Streaming star Dimitri ‘Greekgodx’ Antonatos received a surprising ban from Twitch on November 30, nearly a year after being hit with a suspension from the platform in September 2019.

Greekgodx is a famous name among live streaming circles; known for his hilarious on-stream antics and shocking weight loss journey, Greek has amassed a massive audience on Twitch, boasting well over 1.3 million followers.

However, Greek’s fans were surprised to see him hit with a ban on November 30 for no apparent reason, leading to a slew of speculation as to why the streamer was suddenly suspended form the site.

Although there has been no direct confirmation from neither Twitch nor Greek himself, some theories claim that he may have breached the platform’s Terms of Service by allegedly watching street fight videos.

Still others theorize that it may be the result of yet another DMCA claim, with the broadcaster potentially streaming copyrighted music or other material on his channel.

This isn’t the first time Greek has been banned from the site; in September 2019, the streamer was hit with a 14 day suspension over what he claimed was a “silly comment about gender” regarding SoundCloud’s options when its users make an account.

Having stated that SoundCloud was “catering to cucks,” the British broadcasting star quickly apologized for the comments in a subsequent Tweet, claiming that it was “just a joke” and that he was “really sorry to anyone I offended. I didn’t mean to be hurtful or hateful.”

While there’s no telling what the reason for Greek’s most recent ban is at the time of writing, fans are hopeful that he won’t be away from the platform for too long — although considering the recent wave of Twitch bans lately, he’s certainly not alone in being unable to broadcast.
