YouTube superstar Olajide ‘KSIOlajideBT’ Olatunji has suggested that his next boxing fight will take place against Jake Paul, the brother of his previous opponent – Logan Paul.

In August 2018 KSI and Logan Paul fought one another in a pay-per-view boxing match streamed via YouTube, in what became the largest non-professional boxing fight of all time. The match ended controversially with a majority draw, 57-57.

There had originally been a rematch planned at an undetermined venue in the United States, but clashes over contracts and availability since the original fight have cast doubt on this.

ReutersThe previous fight became the largest white-collar boxing event ever.

Since then, KSI has put numerous YouTube videos up stating he is looking for a different opponent, and he now seems to have officially offered the fight to someone else: Logan’s younger brother, Jake Paul.

Jake, who beat KSI’s younger brother Deji Olatunji on the undercard in August, was called out on Twitter following a tweet from Logan Paul, who was speculating that KSI would “skurt the rematch”.

This prompted KSI to respond, arguing that Logan Paul had missed his chance for a rematch and that he would prefer to fight Jake, in order to “avenge my bro”.

The revelation comes amid long lasting speculation that the rematch will not take place, with KSI even suggesting he’d want to fight rapper Dax after the two had a heated exchange on social media.

Now, it appears to be confirmed that KSI is looking elsewhere for an opponent, going as far as to tweet Jake Paul by name, offering him the “main event” and asking Jake to prove that he is “trash” – in response to comments made by the American on the ‘Impaulsive’ podcast.

The exchange has caused a large-scale Twitter dispute between Logan and KSI, with the two going on to swap personal insults on the social media platform. On top of the Twitter trade-offs, KSI appeared on the March 8 edition of YouTube news show ‘Drama Alert’ – talking to host Daniel ‘Keemstar’ Keem about the potential fight.

KSI said that “if he’s [Jake Paul] actually serious about wanting to fight me, then I’m down,” while Keemstar himself indicated that he would prefer to see Jake fight KSI as opposed to a rematch with Logan.

The situation is yet to reach an official conclusion, but stay tuned to Dexerto for the latest. What do you think? Who would you rather see KSI fight?

Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg criticized viewers who flood his wife Marzia’s Instagram account every time he makes a comment on it to support her. The Swede hit out at the “simp” meme becoming overused.

With over 108 millions subscribers to his channel in 2020, PewDiePie is not only one of the platform’s biggest creators, but undoubtedly one of the most popular entertainers in the world.

The YouTuber has also become an icon when it comes to internet humor. In November, the star called out viewers overusing the popular “simp” meme every time he supports his wife Marzia, and explained why he’s tired of reading it.

PewDiePie hits out at “simp” comments flooding Marzia’s Instagram

While the modern use of “simp” goes back as far as the 1980s, the term has exploded in popularity in 2020, becoming one of the year’s biggest memes. However, during his November 27 upload, PewDiePie explained why it’s starting to become too much on Instagram.

“Instagram is even worse. I commented on Marzia’s post, and I swear to God every single comment… She painted the kitchen and I said “you did so good” because I know she worked hard on it. And it’s just “simp, simp, simp king” every single comment. It is so unfunny. Jesus Christ, dude!” the YouTuber exclaimed.

The star then went on to mock the way memes become tired quickly due to users jumping on the bandwagon and spamming it relentlessly online in comments. “Maybe if everyone says a joke, it becomes funnier,” he said sarcastically.

Hilariously, the star had a follow-up to the situation on November 30 when one fan pointed out that they actually had made a nice comment on Marzia’s Instagram post. “Me understanding that he just wants to be a good husband,” they wrote days prior. PewDiePie then apologized to the viewer. “I’m sorry tg_man 12. I did you dirty, I did you dirty,” he laughed.

While the content creator has made several videos on the simp meme, he has been critical of how its been used in the past and mocked users for their broad use of it. Now it appears the joke is starting to overstay its welcome with how often it’s being repeated.

The 31-year-old has had an incredible year so far, making a successful move to streaming after signing a major deal with YouTube in May to broadcast live exclusively on their platform. The entertainer also surpassed over 108 million subscribers in November, making him the most followed individual on the platform.
