YouTube star-turned-boxer KSI may have won his 2019 rematch with “The Maverick,” but that isn’t the end of his rivalry with the Paul brothers, thanks to a newfound grudge with Team 10 founder Jake Paul.

Jake is set to face off with British YouTuber AnEsonGib on Thursday, January 30 in their debut as professional boxers.

However, Gib isn’t Paul’s final celebrity opponent, with Jake calling his upcoming fight nothing more than a mere “doormat” on his way to his real goal — KSI.

YouTubers Jake Paul and AnEsonGib will throw down on January 30 in their debut as professional boxers.

While KSI initially brushed off his first attempts at a potential bout, it seems that his tune has since changed, with the Sidemen member ultimately agreeing to a fight with the American YouTuber, should he take the win over Gib.

It’s looking like their potential grudge match is turning into the real deal, too, thanks to a pointed warning KSI sent to Jake Paul via Twitter on January 28 that was captioned, “F**k Jake Paul. End his career AnEsonGib.”

KSI emerged the victor of his November 9 rematch with Logan Paul.

In his video post, KSI squared off with a typical boxing arcade game, the speed bag of which had been painted with Jake Paul’s face.

“F**k Jake Paul!” KSI shouted before giving the bag a solid punch, which tallied up to a score above 907. The camera then panned to KSI comically dancing to She Wes’s “Mo Bamba.”

Despite its humor, the customized threat sent a serious message to the youngest Paul brother — that KSI is more than ready to throw down if “Big Gibber” falls in the ring.

While Jake has yet to respond to KSI’s latest taunt, it comes as little surprise that he’s challenging YouTube’s biggest boxing champ, hoping to avenge his older brother’s loss by a two-point deduction in the fourth round of their November 9 rematch.

Although Logan appealed the decision, his request was ultimately denied, which he gracefully admitted in a video on the topic shortly thereafter.

Thanks to Jake’s highly-publicized challenge, it looks like the grudge between KSI and the Pauls isn’t over, just yet — although the actual possibility of a bout between the two depends on the outcome of the January 30 fight.

S1mple banned again on Twitch for fourth time over “aggression”

CS:GO star Oleksandr ‘s1mple’ Kostyliev has apparently been banned again on Twitch, for his fourth time in total on the platform.

The Ukrainian is the star of Natus Vincere’s CSGO squad and generally considered one of the best CS:GO players in the entire world, but even that isn’t enough to save you from the wrath of Twitch mods.

S1mple is no stranger to temporary bans from the site, and it seems he added to his tally again on Oct. 30, with his channel being taken offline out of nowhere.

It seems that like in the past, the pro has once again been banned for using a slur while streaming, but this latest episode isn’t quite like the others.

Shortly after news of the ban dropped, s1mple Tweeted that he was banned for using a Russian slur, but he claims he only said it because he was upset with another player for saying it on his stream.

“It’s funny that I get banned for aggression towards a person that says the word “Pidor” and specifically tries to ban me on the platform,” he wrote. “I try to condemn him for this and say the forbidden word because I have a negative attitude towards it (because of rules).”

While s1mple filled fans in on why he was banned, he didn’t mention how long he would be off of the platform for. Looking at his past infractions though, and it’s safe to say he’s probably looking at a 7-day break, at the very least.

The site has been known to ban repeat offenders for longer if they continue to get in hot water for the same thing, but considering how big of a name s1mple is and the circumstances surrounding this particular incident, it’s hard to say.

A good number of his fans noted that Twitch was quick to ban the Na’Vi pro after he slipped up, but still haven’t taken action against any one of the countless channels that rebroadcast s1mple’s streams to try and steal viewers.

Still, the pro doesn’t seem so much bothered by the ban as he does annoyed, which makes sense because he doesn’t really need to stream so to speak, considering all the money he’s made playing CS:GO professionally. That doesn’t really help his fans though, who will have to find someone else to watch while they wait for his return.
