YouTube stars Logan Paul and KSI threw down for the final time in the boxing ring on November 9 – but it doesn’t look like their fighting careers are ending anytime soon.

Both YouTubers have expressed an ardent desire to further their status as professional fighters, with Logan Paul notably petitioning UFC president Dana White for a chance at stepping in the octagon after his first fight in 2018.

Although White claimed that Paul would “get murdered” in MMA, his boxing rematch with KSI has put the YouTuber on the map, once more – and this time, the odds put him in favor of fighting with boxing legend Floyd Mayweather.

YouTubers Logan Paul & KSI faced off for the final time on November 9, with KSI winning by split-decision.

With Mayweather announcing that he’s coming out of retirement for the fourth time, boxing fans are rampant with speculation as to who the undefeated legend will fight, and apparently, one of his potential opponents could be Logan Paul.

UK betting platform Betfair placed both KSI and Logan Paul as possible candidates to take on Mayweather in the ring – although the odds are not in their favor, putting the YouTubers at 33/1 against the boxer.

Betfair.comThe odds of Mayweather choosing KSI and Logan Paul for his comeback boxing match are quite slim – but they exist.

Although near-impossible, it doesn’t look like Paul is dissuaded by his odds, expressing his curious excitement at the news on Twitter and even issuing a challenge toward Mayweather.

“Bring it,” Paul wrote over a screenshot of Sport Bible’s article on his odds.

While Mayweather has yet to respond to Paul’s callout, some fans aren’t sure that he’s even returning boxing. There’s speculation that he may be switching to MMA after he posed for a photo with Dana White promising to “bring the world another spectacular event in 2020.”

Though the chances of Paul actually taking on Mayweather might be slim, such a change would work in his favor, with the YouTuber claiming that his future lies within the sport during an interview DAZN following his rematch with KSI.

Having already gunned for MMA in the past, it doesn’t look like he’s giving up the dream anytime soon – but the odds are still out on his actual chances of even sparring with Mayweather in the ring.


Hasan calls out ‘doppelganger’ Spanish Twitch streamer after hilarious rant

Hasan jokingly called out a Spanish Twitch streamer named IlloJuan who made a hilarious rant after his fans told him they looked similar.

Hasan Piker, better known as HasanAbi, has met his match. Not in terms of political commentary, but rather, his appearance. It happened after the fanbase of a Spanish streamer named IlloJuan described the two of them as doppelgangers.

IlloJuan reacted hilariously to the comparison live on stream. Somebody captured a video of it, and it went viral. Eventually, it found its way to Hasan, who watched it live on his stream.

Hasan streams games, but his priority is to keep viewers updated on major political events.

“This guy? This guy me?” said IlloJuan. He pointed to the picture of Hasan. Then, he pointed to himself and flexed his biceps. “I am stronger.” But he didn’t look too convinced about his claim, and neither did Hasan.

“Hey! Hey! Listen,” said Hasan, while jokingly cracking his knuckles. “It’s on-site, mother f**ker.” He sat back and listened to the rest of IlloJuan’s rant.

“No, I mean, with glasses, maybe,” said IlloJuan. “But no, this guy is very strong. He kills me with one punch. Dangerous guy, this guy. What does this guy stream? He seems like he streams Team Fight Tactics.”

“What?” said Hasan, in disbelief. It seems like he thought that was the last game he’d be associated with. His viewers were in stitches, and so was he. They spammed the chat with laughter.

Fortunately, somebody told IlloJuan what he actually streams.  “Politics? He streams politics?” he said. “Ah, he speaks about politics, oh okay. Well, yes, with glasses, yes, he’s a smart guy.”

Hassan burst out laughing and stopped the video. He couldn’t get over the fact IlloJuan thought he streamed Team Fight Tactics. “Mother f**ker said Team Fight Tactics, bro. What?” he said.

“I think English [speakers] and Spanish speakers are [coming together on Twitch]. A lot of Spanish streamers are talking about English speaking streamers, too. What’s going on? I mean, listen, I’ve got a big Latina community in my audience too, so.”

Hilarious rants and reactions aside, it seems like Hasan could be on to something here. The two communities have overlapped quite a bit in recent weeks. For example, TheGrefg broke his own viewership record and became a household name among English speakers.

Hasan and his reaction to IlloJuan is another example. Who knows, maybe the two of them will collaborate in a doppelganger steam at some point. Perhaps it’s something their viewers would love to see.
