Popular YouTubers Jake Paul and Joe Weller threw down in a last-minute boxing match on March 23 – but their bout is earning some hilarious criticism from other creators in the space.

YouTuber Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji uploaded a reaction to the match on March 29 after announcing the video two days prior, taking some scathing shots at both combatants in the process.

Although KSI felt that the entire match was set up as a “trap” to make Weller look bad from the beginning, he acknowledged that Paul threw a decent body shot near the bout’s end, which ultimately took Weller out – although he didn’t miss an opportunity to insult Jake in doing so.

“Joe has literally just been embarrassed this whole video,” KSI said of the match. “Literally this whole video was just a Jake Paul ego-flex.”

KSI also roasted Paul’s diss track against Weller, calling the clip “embarrassing” due to Joe’s own role as a backup dancer in the video despite the diss track being against him.

“Are you really going this low for clout?” KSI asked. “…Jake Paul is literally mugging off Joe Weller in front of his face, and Joe Weller is pointing at himself! …Joe, have some dignity, man.”

KSI even popped off on Jake after watching the diss track, claiming that he hated him more than his long-time rival Logan Paul – and even gave a possible peek at a fight with Jake in the future.

“If I have to fuck up your big bro to get to you, Jake, then I’m fucking down, bro,” he said pointedly.

Jake Paul and Joe Weller made plans for an impromptu boxing match after Weller announced his seven-day trip to Los Angeles on March 18, leading to a quickly organized fight in Paul’s backyard.

Weller ultimately lost the bout after sustaining a well-placed body shot by Paul to the gut, prompting some fans to speculate that Jake had paid Weller off beforehand.

Despite the widespread criticism, Weller denied any accusations of taking money from Paul, claiming that he would “never take money to look bad and take a loss” in a self-deprecating Tweet on March 27.

In the midst of the speculation, KSI confirmed that his rematch with Logan Paul is still a-go, despite previously shrugging off Logan in favor of Jake. 

While the fight was scheduled for November 2019, no further details for the rematch have yet been released.

YouTube star Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson has given away another massive prize worth $10,000 to one random player in his latest Minecraft survival challenge.

Mr Beast is one of the biggest content creators on YouTube and is well known for his generosity, giving hundreds of thousands of dollars away to strangers in some of his past uploads.

During his latest video on his gaming channel, Mr Beast Gaming, the YouTuber revealed that he would be hosting a bizarre Minecraft challenge with a whopping $10,000 Subway gift card up for grabs.

Mr Beast has hosted plenty of unique challenge videos on his YouTube channel.

In one of his most ridiculous challenges yet, Mr Beast explained that this survival challenge would have plenty of interesting twists and turns before the winner was decided.

While it appeared to start off as a regular Minecraft ‘Hunger Games’ match, Mr Beast did not tell those participating that, instead of the border closing in on them from all sides, lava would begin to fill the map from down below.

This secret change seemed to catch plenty of players off-guard, after many of them immediately trekked down to the mines, in an attempt to gear up with diamond armor and equipment.

Mr Beast, who was spectating all of the action from above, would also spice things up by dropping rare pieces of equipment in front of a group to incentivize more fights.

In another twist, the YouTuber shared that the final player standing would not win anything, and that the full $10,000 Subway gift card would go to the person in 2nd place instead.

The final stage of the challenge was extremely close, with the last few players all falling into the lava at the exact same time. It was AltirixGaming though, the one who managed to claim the $10,000 prize.

Mr Beast has hosted other unique challenges on the sandbox title, such as his recent video where he gathered more players for an epic $50,000 Minecraft building competition.
