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?

Californian YouTube Among Us sensation Corpse Husband has apparently appeared out of nowhere, but who exactly is he?

It’s safe to say that every gamer, non-gamer and Youtube fanatic knows about Among Us, the newest party game that sees players attempt to decipher who the impostor is before they brutally murder all of their comrades and win the game.

Thousands of streamers have jumped on the Among Us bandwagon, with names like xQc, Valkyre and Trainwrecks dominating the Among Us Charts. The game has even attracted political figures, namely American Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez who used the game as a platform to reach out to the gaming youth of today.

On YouTube, however, the Among Us scene rests firmly within the grasp of Corpse Husband (or Corpse, who has become an overnight Among Us sensation. Despite his synonymity with the game though, Corpse has a long and varied streaming past despite only being the tender age of 23.

The underground YouTube star has become an Among Us sensation.

From YouTube spook to Among Us fame

Corpse’s Youtube career began in the dark realms of horror story narration. Citing online CreepyPasta narration channels such as Mr.Nightmare, Be.Buster and Lazy Masquerade as inspiration, Corpse created his own iteration of a horror narration channel, with his distinctive deep voice adding to the spookiness of his videos. This mystery was only amplified by Corpse’s decision to hide his face in the online sphere.

While Corpse’s YouTube still provides every horror fan with a video playground, his most recent Among Us videos have racked up millions of views, blowing his creepier videos out of the YouTube waters in terms of views.

Focusing on how to win the game as the impostor – even if you have admitted you are the impostor – the three current Among Us videos on his channel have earned him a total of 26.5 million views. That’s hardly a number to smirk at.

Being the impostor in Among Us certainly requires the gift of a silver tongue, something that Corpse clearly possesses. It’ll be interesting to see whether his popularity fades as the game slips out of the mainstream media, but judging by his views that doesn’t seem too likely. After all, if you’re not watching him for Among Us right now is the perfect time of year to sit back, relax and be terrified.
