Popular YouTuber Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji had a hilarious encounter with a fan during one of his ‘one question’ videos – and the interaction got a bit out of hand.

The fan popped up in KSI’s discord with a simple favor: it was his mother’s birthday, and he wanted KSI to help her celebrate – and even give her his phone number.

“I need a favor from you, alright?” the fan asked. “My mom turns 50 tomorrow and my dad walked out on us… so could you wish her a happy birthday and like, give her your phone number, maybe?”

KSI entertained the fan’s request, which led to a hilarious conversation between the three parties that ultimately ended in an apology from the YouTuber.

KSI also revealed some pertinent information regarding his boxing rematch with Logan Paul, which he’d slated for November of 2019. Despite his previous announcement on the subject, a fan wanted to know an exact date for the bout – which KSI admitted has not yet been officially scheduled.

“I’ve no idea,” KSI answered. “I’m hoping November.”

KSI likewise confirmed that the match would not take place on the East Coast in a previous ‘one question’ video, which he expressed some frustration about due to the potential cut in viewership from his UK-based audience.

KSI vs Logan Paul, YouTubeKSI and Logan Paul are set to throw down in a rematch for 2019 – but no official date has been given, other than a projected time in November.

The YouTuber likewise denied any claims of breaking his contract with Paul, instead blaming his opponent for not scheduling a venue on time – or even a state, for that matter.

After months of back-and-forth, Jake Paul and Nate Robinson finally stepped into the squared circle for their highly-anticipated boxing matchup, but Jake Paul dominated and wrapped it up early.

YouTubers strapping on boxing gloves and squaring up with one another was a trend kicked off by KSI and Joe Weller back in 2018. Since then, the concept has exploded – including KSI forging rivalries with the Paul brothers and fighting Logan Paul in a professional bout in Los Angeles. 

Typically, it has been all about a YouTuber fighting another content creator, but Jake Paul’s next fight was a little different. He fought former NBA star Nate Robinson on the undercard of the Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. exhibition bout, and it was a dominant performance.

Paul and Robinson have been going back-and-forth for months, with their fight being delayed previously.

Jake Paul dominates Nate Robinson, Round 2 KO

Nate Robinson looked anxious right out of the gate, but it didn’t stop him from having an energetic start. He came in with his fists flying and tried to assert his dominance early on, although he looked a little clumsy at times.

Still, it wasn’t long before Jake Paul’s superior experience and skillset started to show. He dished out a series of calculated strikes and hugs to stop Nate in his tracks. It totally slowed down the momentum and even reversed it.

From that point onwards, Jake Paul was never in doubt. He downed Nate Robinson towards the end of the first round, but the former NBA star managed to get back on his feet and stay in the fight.

However, it didn’t last much longer. Jake Paul continued to dominate in the second round and sent Nate crashing down once again. He managed to get up one last time, but Jake Paul absolutely flattened him with an impressively powerful punch to knock him out and seal the deal.

Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. fight card

As for who else was in action on the card, it wasn’t full of YouTubers or other side shows like some of Paul’s other fights, but instead, actual professional bouts. Former undefeated light-heavyweight star Badou Jack was in action, moving to Cruiserweight, while the highly anticipated matchup between Tyson and Jones Jr was an electrifying affair.

  • Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr
  • Jake Paul vs Nate Robinson
  • Badou Jack vs Blake McKernan
  • Hasim Rahman Jr vs Rashad Coulter
  • Jamaine Ortiz vs Nahir Albright
  • Irvin Gonzalez vs Edward Vasquez
  • Juiseppe Cusumano vs Nick Jones

All in all, it was an impressive performance by Jake Paul. Of course, he was widely expected to win since he’s been in the game for longer than Nate Robinson.

Still, he moved and punched like a true professional, and has already set his sights on what’s next.
