KSI explains why he’d beat 50 Cent, Migos, & more in boxing match

YouTube star KSI defeated rival Logan Paul by split decision in their long-awaited boxing rematch, but the jury isn’t completely out on other celebrity boxing matches for the internet sensation.

Following their rematch, boxing promoter Eddie Hearn claimed that he’d received “five or six calls” from “probably the highest-profile people in their field,” citing actors, athletes, and musicians without naming names.

While fans may never know exactly who gave Hearn a ring regarding a potential fight, Hip Hop news outlet “HipHopDX” took this possibility and questioned KSI on which celebs he’d be down to dance with in the ring.

KSI, InstagramKSI reigned victorious over longtime rival Logan Paul at their November 9 boxing rematch.

Of these celebrities were listed rappers like 50 Cent, Wiz Khalifa, and even the Migos – all of whom the YouTuber felt he could defeat in a legit boxing match.

“That would be a good matchup, I think!” KSI laughed of the 50 Cent query. “Stamina-wise, I’d just, yeah. I’d be all over him. …I love 50, man. He’s such a clown on Instagram.”

50 Cent, InstagramKSI felt fairly confident of his chances against rapper 50 Cent.

KSI felt much the same about Wiz Khalifa, who was even present at his fight, stating, “I think he’s got quite a skinny frame. Again, if I just hit him, he’d just be like, ‘Yeah, I’m good.’”

In a bit of humor, the interviewer even asked if KSI could take on all three members of the Migos, at once – a challenge that he’s apparently down for.

“They’d come in swingin’, man!” he laughed. “But yeah, no, I’d be able to take them all, for sure.”

(Segment begins at 5:14 for mobile readers.)

HipHopDX didn’t stick with rappers, alone: they also questioned KSI on his ability to take fellow YouTubers, such as Vitaly Zdorovetskiy and even viral philanthropist Mr Beast.

“I’d destroy him, man, yeah,” KSI said of a possible bout with Vitaly. “Nothing, easy. On roids or off roids, I’d destroy him, yeah. Even if he does substances, I’d still finish him.”

Vitaly Zdorovetsiy, YouTubeKSI made a not-so-subtle jab toward Vitaly’s alleged use of steroids.

In spite of his jab toward Vitaly, KSI was rather complimentary toward Mr Beast, claiming that he’d feel bad for fighting the charitable star because he’s “such a nice person.”

While there’s no telling who KSI may fight next in wake of his musical success, it doesn’t look like the YouTuber is turning down any potential offers from top personalities and celebrities, just yet.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
