YouTube star Jake Paul is set to face off against former NBA player Nate Robinson on September 12 — but in spite of Robinson’s status as a star athlete, rival influencer KSI thinks Paul might have the drop on the pro baller.

Jake Paul has been teasing a match with KSI for some time now, but it looks like their proposed bout is taking the backseat to Paul’s upcoming fight against former NBA point guard Nate Robinson.

With the match taking place on the undercard of arguably the biggest boxing event this year — Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. — it’s easy to see how this is a huge moment for YouTube athletes, but KSI feels it could be even bigger than fans already anticipate.

In fact, KSI predicts a win for Jake Paul, expressing dismay about his potential victory during a July 27 video, where he watched footage of Robinson’s mit work.

“Mans is five foot nine and can do a madness!” KSI said of Paul’s opponent. “But when it comes to boxing, I just don’t see it! …with pads, anyone can look good on pads. The best way to see how good of a fighter someone is, is through an actual fight!”

“I’m looking at this man, and I’m just… I’m not impressed,” he continued as he watched footage of Robinson hitting the pads. “He just looks stiff, fam. He’s not rotating the body, it’s just… oh, man. Jake’s gonna f**ing win this. Jake’s gonna f**king win this, and this is gonna boost his ego even more.”

However, a win for Jake could spell good news for his potential fight with KSI, as the British YouTuber claimed that, should he lose, all hype for their bout would be equally destitute.

“If Jake loses, this just deads our fight,” he laughed. “Like, it kills the hype and everything. I don’t know why he’s decided to do this. If he wins, then yeah, this is gonna hype up our fight even more.”

KSI isn’t the only one predicting a victory for Paul, either; his former boxing coach, Viddal Riley, likewise feels that he has the win in hand.

Despite predictions, only time will tell how Jake will fare against an NBA superstar in the ring — but considering his near-constant boxing practice, it’s safe to say the Team 10 founder is in peak fighting shape.

A Pokemon Trading Card Game livestream ended in disaster after it was quickly discovered that the booster packs were fake. The YouTube channel spent over $375k on the 1st Edition base set box, only for it to be resealed. 

Despite making its debut in 1999, the Pokemon TCG has exploded in popularity over the past two years. The hobby hit an all-time high in October when influencer Logan Paul opened a base set booster box he paid $216k for while livestreaming.

However, things didn’t work out as well for another YouTube channel who paid $375k for the same item. The livestream unboxing of the rare collectible quickly turned tragic when it was discovered that the TCG item was actually fake.

Rare Pokemon TCG box opening ends in complete disaster

The event was hosted by YouTube channel ‘Dumb Money Live’ and included popular Pokemon content creators such as Lee ‘Leonhart’ Seinfeld. The rare 1st Edition base set booster box was bought for a record-breaking $375 through Logan Paul’s collectible trader ‘Collectables Guru.’

“The owner of the box supposedly bought three boxes when he was a child. They sat in the gun safe the entire time,” the Pokemon dealer explained. However, they quickly realized something was amiss after breaking the seal. Several booster packs were different colors, and some weren’t even 1st Edition.

“Oh no. That is a major f**king deal!” Guru exclaimed. The personality opening the box then revealed the problem: “It’s not even base set cards, these are Jungles! Wow. This is a resealed box. It’s random!”

(Topic starts at 35:41)

Upset, Collectable Guru called up the seller and explained that the box was resealed. “We opened the box literally live and they’re resealed packs. There is like base set 2 mixed in, half of them are 1st Edition. But they are all resealed, this is absolutely unacceptable. How is this going to be taken care of immediately?”

Stunned by the whole thing, Leonhart stood by and said, “Oh my gosh, I was not expecting that.” Guru came back and updated the group and explained that the seller had two other boxes that they were going to open first before bringing them back to the YouTubers.

The YouTubers were floored after the rare Pokemon box was fake.

To add salt to the wound, the box opening was done on stream for charity. Dumb Money Live gave an update and addressed the situation a day later stating: “I don’t know a single person in my network that hasn’t been defrauded as an investor. You have to give sellers a benefit to make this right.”

At the time of writing, the situation has not been entirely rectified. The channel will open a booster pack on October 30 live to verify that the second box is actually real. However, it appears that if this one is fake as well, the seller claims they will refund the content creators their $375k.
