KSI explains why he couldn’t drop Logan Paul in their first boxing match

Popular YouTubers Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji and Logan Paul took their beef to the next level in August 2018, settling the score by throwing down in the boxing ring in YouTube’s largest pay-per-view event to date: but things didn’t pan out as they’d expected, with their fight ultimately resulting in a disappointing draw.

While both fighters predicted a victory by knockout, the judges’ decision was final, setting up the two YouTube stars for a rematch the following year.

However, Logan Paul and his team have allegedly been dragging their heels in organizing the event, leaving KSI visibly frustrated – but he’s confident that he’s going to turn “Super Saiyan Three” in their next bout, and even explained why he couldn’t get the drop on LP back in summer 2018.

KSI opened up about their previous fight in a video on July 13, where he admitted that he was disappointed in his own performance and lacked the strength to knock out his blonde-haired enemy.

“Obviously, with the last fight, I was disappointed in how I fought,” KSI said of the matter. “I connected with him several times, but I just didn’t have enough power to actually drop him. Until now, of course.”

KSI also joked that “bulking season” is over, claiming that he’s now dedicated to preparing for their rematch after traveling for his “New Age” music tour – but he isn’t the only one gearing up for the bout, by far.

Logan Paul shared footage of his training regime while traveling to Stockholm, Sweden the week prior, as if to taunt KSI in the middle of his tour.

KSI mocked Paul’s video with a clown emoji via The Bread Batch’s Instagram post, later uploading his own training footage shortly thereafter in response to LP’s veiled callout.

Although the two are now in full-on training mode, neither an official date nor a venue have been selected for their rematch, which is scheduled to go down sometime in November 2019.

As the months go by, their rematch draws ever closer, with both fans and KSI himself awaiting an updated announcement for the fight.

Ninja shocks Valorant star with huge donation after Twitch refund scam

Chargebacks are a Twitch streamer’s worst nightmare, as Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins knows it all too well, so when he saw Valorant star ‘AverageJonas’ get scammed out of over $5,000, he knew he had to step up and help.

There’s few Twitch scams more infuriating than chargeback scams. When you have avid viewers donate to your stream, it’s a wonderful feeling.

However, some viewers do it maliciously, with the intent of taking, not giving. After donating hundreds, or even thousands of dollars, viewers dispute the charge with PayPal or their bank, saying they were hacked and didn’t actually donate the money.

The money then goes back to the donator, and the Twitch streamer is left without the donations, and most of the time, also has to pay a fine on top.

That’s exactly what happened to AverageJonas ⁠— a Valorant Twitch star with over 130,000 followers. He had a viewer refund $5,400 worth of donations, which ended up costing the streamer $5,800 after accounting for transfer fees.

“I have received over $5,400 in several donations from one person on Twitch which have all been refunded even though donations are supposedly non-refund. To top it off, I have been personally charged $400+ in refund fees from PayPal,” Jonas said on Twitter.

“This person used me and my community to gain clout and other benefits by acting like an extremely wealthy and giving human being. The person also pretended like the refunds were a mistake.”

Fortunately, Ninja got wind of the fellow Valorant streamer’s woes.

After all, Jonas is one of Valorant’s biggest content creators, and Ninja is slowly working his way to the top of the pro scene. With all of Jonas’ informational content, it’s the least Ninja could do to put his fandom to use.

Ninja replied to Jonas’ tweet with a simple “fixed.” What he meant by that was he donated AverageJonas $5,800, to cover not only the Twitch donations from the user, but the PayPal fees as well.

Jonas was shocked: “Dude thank you so much you’re such a legend omfg.”

It’s a big win for Jonas, however, it highlights a much bigger issue with Twitch donations. If Ninja hadn’t caught wind of the streamer’s troubles, it’s likely nothing would have been done.

Chargebacks are still a big issue, and there’s nothing you can really do about it as a streamer if PayPal or Twitch don’t step in ⁠— like what happened in Jonas’ case.

However, now he can go back to doing what he does best ⁠— sharing Sova line-ups for every Valorant player to learn.
