Pokimane jokes about why she can't twerk at E3 parties

Twitch streamer Imane ‘Pokimane‘ Anys likes to have fun but she revealed that she can’t party the way she’d like to at an E3 party with a hilarious explanation.

E3 2019 is in full swing and while the conferences are over, the party has just begun as the show floor is open to attendees to try out many of the game shown off during the presentations.

While this is an exciting time of year for video game fans, it’s also a time of year where content creators can get together with one another, which is where E3 parties come in.

UbisoftJust Dance 2020 was announced at E3 for those who just want to dance.

Business or pleasure?

Pokimane explained how she’d like to go to a party but doesn’t feel like E3 is the right setting for her. 

“Sometimes it just feels like these parties are more so work than they are play for me and I don’t really like that,” she explained. “Like you just can’t twerk at an E3 party, it’s unprofessional or something, I don’t know, that’s what my manager says so I guess I have to listen. But then why would I go?”

Going to a conference like this can be exhausting and sometimes you just want to unwind after a long day, but she feels like that just isn’t an option for E3.

While it’s clear that’s she’s making a joke, E3 does tend to be more professional as there are numerous brands that go to the conference and chances are you’ll run into a couple of your sponsors.

During Dr Disrespects first IRL stream, which ended in a ban, he had a long chat with members from the G FUEL team, one of his sponsors. 

The Doc never got around to doing any twerking during his stream, but he did go into a bathroom several times, which Twitch clearly didn’t appreciate.

After months of back-and-forth, Jake Paul and Nate Robinson finally stepped into the squared circle for their highly-anticipated boxing matchup, but Jake Paul dominated and wrapped it up early.

YouTubers strapping on boxing gloves and squaring up with one another was a trend kicked off by KSI and Joe Weller back in 2018. Since then, the concept has exploded – including KSI forging rivalries with the Paul brothers and fighting Logan Paul in a professional bout in Los Angeles. 

Typically, it has been all about a YouTuber fighting another content creator, but Jake Paul’s next fight was a little different. He fought former NBA star Nate Robinson on the undercard of the Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. exhibition bout, and it was a dominant performance.

Paul and Robinson have been going back-and-forth for months, with their fight being delayed previously.

Jake Paul dominates Nate Robinson, Round 2 KO

Nate Robinson looked anxious right out of the gate, but it didn’t stop him from having an energetic start. He came in with his fists flying and tried to assert his dominance early on, although he looked a little clumsy at times.

Still, it wasn’t long before Jake Paul’s superior experience and skillset started to show. He dished out a series of calculated strikes and hugs to stop Nate in his tracks. It totally slowed down the momentum and even reversed it.

From that point onwards, Jake Paul was never in doubt. He downed Nate Robinson towards the end of the first round, but the former NBA star managed to get back on his feet and stay in the fight.

However, it didn’t last much longer. Jake Paul continued to dominate in the second round and sent Nate crashing down once again. He managed to get up one last time, but Jake Paul absolutely flattened him with an impressively powerful punch to knock him out and seal the deal.

Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. fight card

As for who else was in action on the card, it wasn’t full of YouTubers or other side shows like some of Paul’s other fights, but instead, actual professional bouts. Former undefeated light-heavyweight star Badou Jack was in action, moving to Cruiserweight, while the highly anticipated matchup between Tyson and Jones Jr was an electrifying affair.

  • Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr
  • Jake Paul vs Nate Robinson
  • Badou Jack vs Blake McKernan
  • Hasim Rahman Jr vs Rashad Coulter
  • Jamaine Ortiz vs Nahir Albright
  • Irvin Gonzalez vs Edward Vasquez
  • Juiseppe Cusumano vs Nick Jones

All in all, it was an impressive performance by Jake Paul. Of course, he was widely expected to win since he’s been in the game for longer than Nate Robinson.

Still, he moved and punched like a true professional, and has already set his sights on what’s next.
