Popular content creators Logan Paul and JJ ‘KSI’ Olatunji faced off in yet another boxing challenge ahead of the AnEsonGib vs Jake Paul match on January 30.

The popular YouTube stars seemed to have a lot of bad blood between them ahead of their rematch, which saw KSI walk away with a split decision victory on November 9.

However, in the lead up to his brother’s professional debut against AnEsonGib, Logan Paul and his former rival, KSI have appeared to have moved on, even appearing next to each other on DAZN’s pre-fight show.

KSI narrowly beat Logan Paul with a close split decision during their rematch.

Surprisingly the pair did not hold back from giving one another props on their fighting abilities and revealed what they had been up to following their close fight in November.

The British and American stars were quite cordial on stream and began to discuss their future plans for their boxing career, with KSI admitting he was quite open to the possibility of the Jake fight if he was to get the win.

They were then pitted against each other once again, although this time the stakes were much lower, as they attempted to set the highest score on a punching machine outside of the venue.

Logan started off strong with a high score of 848 and KSI was unable to match him, falling just short with a total of 783.

Despite losing out on the challenge, the British YouTuber managed to get in a subtle jab against his former opponent reminding him that he got the victory where it counted most, “I’ll lose that, I don’t mind.”

However, Logan leaned into the joke, expressing that he was happy to get a win over KSI regardless of the arena, “I was going to say, it feels good to win something against KSI.”

Although the two seem quite friendly as of now, it will be interesting to see if things change between the pair if the possible Jake Paul vs KSI fight is scheduled in 2020.

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.
