KSI has once again chimed in on a potential boxing matchup against Jake Paul, explaining how he would knock the younger Paul brother out if push ever came to shove, and how he’s finally ready to step into the ring with his YouTube rival soon. 

Just 24 hours after Jake Paul said he was “done” calling out KSI, the YouTube star has added more fuel to the fire. In a recent sitdown with ‘The British Entrepreneur,’ KSI painted the picture of what’s shaping up to be his next boxing showdown.

“I will f***ing finish you,” he said bluntly. Whenever the ongoing global crisis calms down to make way for a big crowd, KSI believes he will “finally finish” his feud with the Pauls.

A spectacular finish is what he has in mind, as KSI appears to have all the confidence in the world ahead of the potential high-profile YouTube scrap.

“Even my bro gave him a tough challenge,” he said, referencing Paul’s amateur debut against Deji in 2018. While Paul won that fight via fifth-round stoppage, Deji still made him work for it, according to KSI. “I’d slap my bro easily, so I’m just there like, I beat your older brother so I can beat you.”

“I know he fears me,” he added. “[Jake] thinks he’s the sh** because he beat up Nate Robinson. He never boxed in his life. Yes he beat Gib but again… I can beat Gib.”

The younger Paul brother is currently locked in for a fight against former UFC contender Ben Askren. KSI, though, could very well be his next target. 

“He knows I’m on top of the world right now. I’m on a different level to him, he can’t compare to me. Best believe once I can train again, he’s finished.”

It’s obviously still early days yet but it seems like there’s no avoiding an eventual fight between these two. KSI even revealed that he intended to fight Jake before his series with Logan. “I wanted to fight [you] first but [you] was too pu***,” he said.

For now, we’re not far off from seeing both Paul brothers stepping into the ring once again. Jake’s fight with Askren is lined up for April 17 while Logan is set to take on Floyd Mayweather sometime in the near future.

What are TikTok cults and how can you join one?

Many TikTok users have been left baffled by hundreds of comments that appear under random videos promoting ‘cults’ relating to celebrities or memes, but why exactly are these cults so popular?

Over the past year in particular, TikTok’s userbase has expanded to include not just more users in general, but more communities, with the app being a hub for content relating to various fandoms and hobbies.

More often than not, these communities tend to stay relatively self-contained, as TikTok’s bizarrely accurate algorithm generally does a good job of suggesting the most relevant content for each individual user. This means two people can use the same app but have totally different experiences in terms of the content they see.

However, a new trend sees some groups of people banding together to make their community stronger, spreading the word by putting copy-and-paste messages in comment sections of unrelated viral TikToks.

A key element of the cult trend, is that participants will change their profile to the exact same picture, usually a meme, and they use this to identify each other so they can follow each other back.

Subjects of the trend so far have included singer Lana Del Rey and a viral image of a random hamster, but it’s looking like more cults are in the process of forming.

Why do people join TikTok cults?

The purpose of the trend is fairly innocent, with people generally wanting to make friends with similar interests to them. Having a matching profile picture makes it easy to see who wants to participate in the trend, thereby making connecting with people easier.

Posting the comments about the cult under popular TikToks serves as another way in which users can find each other, and many people have experienced a huge surge in followers since they joined in on the trend, proving to be appealing for those who want to grow their account.

How to join a TikTok cult

After identifying which community you want to be a part of, you’ll need to locate the picture that everyone is using as their profile picture. The images that are used are generally popular memes, so by typing a few keywords in on Google you should easily be able to track down the image.

Once you’ve changed your profile picture, keep an eye out in comment sections of popular TikToks for other participants, and make sure to follow these accounts. As you begin to follow people you should have others follow you back, and you can speed up the process by posting comments yourself.

However, it’s worth noting that not everybody is on board with the cult trend, as sometimes comment sections can be overtaken.

Regardless, it seems like the popularity of TikTok ‘cults’ is on the rise, so if you see these kinds of comments while browsing the app, you’ll know why there are so many of them.
