YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul is gearing up for his January 30 bout with fellow content creator AnEsonGib — but big brother Logan Paul had some key advice to share before their Miami beatdown.
Logan Paul’s latest boxing event saw him lose to longtime rival KSI, who took their November 9 rematch by split-decision from the judges (and a two-point deduction against “The Maverick.”)
Although he later contested these results, Paul’s appeal was ultimately denied, and now he’s using his prior experience to coach his little brother ahead of his own debut fight as a professional boxer.
However, this match is more than a mere debut fight: Jake has openly declared war on KSI as revenge for his brother’s loss, claiming that Gib is nothing more than a “doormat” on his way to the Sidemen member.
As such, his bout with Gib marks a crucial point in his quest, prompting Logan to offer him a key piece of advice in preparation for the possibility of a match with KSI.
Logan revealed this advice in a YouTube video on January 22, after what appears to be a training session with his little bro. In fact, his advice stems from his own boxing loss, which he claimed was ultimately responsible for the fight’s results.
“My one piece of advice, and I’ve told you this a hundred times, I’m gonna say it on camera for the first time,” he prefaced. “Do not underestimate him. That’s where I f**ked up. I think I wasn’t realistic about the outcome of the fight with KSI. I think that’s where I went wrong, and I lost on the day.”

Of course, his advice also comes at the behest of his pocketbook, as Logan revealed he’d bet a whopping $50k on Jake’s victory.
Confident in his chances against Gib, should he win, his victory could mark yet another chapter in the already explosive rivalry between the Paul brothers and KSI — as well as a nice payday for Logan.
Jake Paul vs AnEsonGib is set to throw down on January 30 in Miami, Florida. The match will be live streamed via DAZN.
