YouTube stars KSI and Logan Paul are set to throw down in a highly-anticipated boxing rematch on November 9 – but despite Eddie Hearn’s claims of an all-pro undercard, it looks like two more celebs will be throwing down at the event.

According to the manager of American rapper Soulja Boy, both he and YouTuber Jake Paul will touch gloves at KSI vs Logan Paul 2 in the Los Angeles Staples Center, following the rapper’s early release from prison after violating terms of his probation.

“Soulja Boy has been FREE since July 14th of this year!” Miami Mike wrote. “He is ok and ALIVE and well. As a matter of fact, he’s doing so well that he’s gained 50 lbs… he’s gonna speak about new music and his new documentary ‘This Can’t Be Real’ and his upcoming boxing match with Jake Paul in LA.”

What’s the beef between Jake Paul & Soulja Boy?

Although Eddie Hearn claimed that he wanted to undercard to be “pros only,” this bout between Soulja Boy and Jake Paul doesn’t come as too great of a surprise, considering the two have a beef spanning back to February of this year.

In fact, it was Jake Paul who called out Soulja Boy first, taunting the rapper in a simple Tweet that read, “I wanna box Soulja Boy.”

As fate would have it, the rapper seemed up for the challenge, replying with, “Boy, I’ll knock you out” – but that wasn’t the end of their feud, by far.

The two went on to have a heated conversation over Instagram Live shortly thereafter, with Paul putting a whopping $20 million on their proposed fight.

Things almost “got physical” between the celebs after Paul visited Soulja’s mansion a few weeks later, which ultimately ended with the two shaking hands on a potential boxing match – a proposal that has finally come to fruition after months of radio silence.

While it seemed that MMA pro Dillon Danis was set to face off against Paul for the rematch, it looks like Soulja Boy is keeping his end of the bargain – but there’s no telling if he’ll actually “tell ’em” in the ring.

Tfue teases Fortnite return after huge Season 5 update

Fortnite Battle Royale’s Season 5 update might well have tempted Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney into returning to the battle royale, after the creator dropped a big teaser on social media. 

Epic Games rolled out a bumper new patch on December 2, following the huge Galactus event to seal the end for Season 4. Since that time, we have discovered major changes in the game — including new online quests to replace challenges, Mythic Items, and a new currency called Gold Bars.

With the majority of the community excited about those changes, things might be about to get ever better — as Tfue has hinted at an incoming stream on the game.

You know what that means… It could finally sneak back onto his daily Twitch schedule — or not!

There’s new Quests, Bounties and other things for Tfue to explore.

Tfue Fortnite stream?

On December 2, the former Fortnite esports star — who even competed in the World Cup — has set out the terms fans need to follow to get him back playing. It’s quite simple, too.

He tweeted: “Use code “Tfue” and I’ll stream Fortnite tomorrow.”

Whether or not the player will be looking to stream it for hours on end, or just a brief period of time, remains to be seen. One thing is for sure, though, the new patch certainly is jam-packed with new content to work through.

In October, the streamer revealed two years was too much for him to stick to one game. He said: “Two years of cranking 90s was just too much. I had to spice it up and play other things. Plus, I felt like I milked the game so much that, like, me playing it was almost digging myself into a pit.”

Fortnite’s latest update is very much up and running now though, with a number of further changes are expected. New loot bosses are expected to drop alongside The Mandalorian at different locations throughout the season, which will keep the majority of people occupied.

Will Tfue be part of that? We’ll have to wait and see.
