Popular British YouTuber and rapper Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji has hit back at Jake Paul’s claims that he’s ‘scared’ of a boxing match, as the wait for a fight between the two men goes on. 

Despite the pair being heavily rumored to be setting up a fight for months now, a boxing match between KSI and Jake Paul has not yet materialized. KSI has now overcome Jake’s older brother Logan across two fights, while the younger Paul brother beat out Deji before breezing past AnEsonGib in the first round.

This, along with the war of words that has raged between the two men for the past few months, led many to believe that one final fight was on the way. However, Paul has since been confirmed as fighting ex-NBA star Nate Robinson on September 12.

The fight with Robinson means that any bout between KSI and Jake Paul will likely not happen until 2021, but the pair’s verbal battles have continued.

In an August 7 YouTube video, KSI addressed the Paul brothers once again, and responded to claims made by Jake that he is “scared” of a potential fight.

Asked by older brother Logan whether he was worried about “over-performing” and scaring KSI, Jake responded: “I think KSI is already scared.”

In reply, KSI laughed and said: “Says the guy who made a fake contract, and tried to get me to sign said fake contract. What? I’m scared? Jake, I am not scared, I want to fight you. Trust me. I want to beat the living sh*t out of you.”

“But I can’t!” he continued. “You know why? Because we’re in a pandemic right now. I know you don’t care about the pandemic because you literally threw a party during it… can you be more dumb? That’s just incredibly selfish.”

Criticism of Paul’s behavior during the ongoing health crisis has been widespread, but some, including Jake himself, have defended it.

The pair do look set to fight each other at some point but, as KSI makes clear, the current global situation is not one conducive to travel or large groups of spectators gathering.

We will have to wait and see how this one unfolds but, for the time being, neither man is backing down.


Pokimane reveals plans for Twitch VODs after DMCA takedowns

Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys has revealed her plans for her Twitch VODs, after many creators on the platform, including some of the very biggest, were hit with DMCA takedown notifications over content in their back-catalog.

On October 21, some of the most popular names on the platform revealed that they have been getting these DMCA notifications, with people such as Seth ‘Scump’ Abner, Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar, and more finding that clips and VODs from past broadcasts have been deleted.

Obviously, in recent months there have been issues with streamers using copyrighted music on their stream, with many opting to stop so as to avoid any legal issues, but now their past content is being sifted through and checked, and the results are wiping out some of these creators’ favorite moments on stream.

While many streamers are doing all they can to keep their content on their Twitch channel available, Pokimane has revealed her plans for past VODs.

Pokimane has been streaming full-time since 2017, but may have to remove a lot of her content to avoid DMCA takedown requests.

After a viewer told Poki that fellow streamer Saqib ‘Lirik’ Zahid was to delete all of his VODs he’s built up over the years, she suggested that the same might be the case for her own channel.

“Lirik’s going to delete all his VODs? Well, guess what, it’s not just Lirik,” she told her viewers during her October 22 stream.

She continued: “Today, tomorrow, at some point, you guys are going to come across my channel and there’s going to be zero content. Sucks to say, but it is what it is.”

Of course, there will be many top streamers considering that reality right now: that the content they’ve put out over however many years could simply be erased due to the music being played in the background.

Some content creators have already started taking down old VODs and deleting clips, and Pokimane may be just one of many that do so to avoid being banned from the platform altogether. We might see some creators start transferring their content to YouTube, but this would likely require a Herculean effort, too.

At the time of writing, Pokimane’s VODs haven’t been wiped from her channel.
