KSI explains why Jake Paul is “washed up” ahead of AnEsonGib fight

YouTube star KSI may have defeated Logan Paul in the boxing ring, but his grudge with the Paul brothers is far from over, with Jake Paul notably calling him out for a potential fight — that is, if he defeats his upcoming rival AnEsonGib.

Jake Paul and AnEsonGib are scheduled to throw down in their debut professional boxing match on January 30, with Paul openly setting his sights on KSI, should he emerge victorious.

Whatever his chances may be, KSI is confident that the Team 10 founder is desperate to win over his British opponent, claiming that he needs a win to stay on top of his social media game.

The YouTuber addressed this matter in a Reddit reaction video on January 17, where he called the youngest Paul brother “washed up” and argued that he’d do “anything” for online clout after mocking his less-than-impressive Twitter likes.

“I think Jake feels like he needs to win this fight against Gib in order to remain relevant again,” he explained. “These guys are just clout-chasers, man. Jake, Logan, they just love clout. There are so many more YouTubers like that. Just obsessed over clout.”

KSI claimed that Gib would need to finish off his rival for Jake’s alleged clout-chasing ways to die down, knowing that he wouldn’t be able to challenge him after such a massive loss.

“This is why Gib needs to f**king do what he needs to do and destroy Jake, and get rid of him for good,” he continued. “At that point, once he beats Jake, Jake’s finished. Jake is done. He can’t come at me, because I’ll be like, ‘Bro, you couldn’t beat Gib! You think you can fight me?’”

With Logan Paul losing to KSI on November 9 by split-decision, Jake hopes to settle the score against the “Down Like That” rapper once and for all at a later date — but such a dramatic storyline hinges on his performance against Gib at the end of the month.

For now, all fans can do is watch and wait for the fight’s eventual outcome, which could add yet another chapter to an already historic YouTube rivalry.
