A streamer decided to make his dog the center of attention while he restreamed the Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz Jr rematch live on Twitch.

In recent years, piracy has become a major problem with sporting and pay-per-view events. It doesn’t take long to find an illegal stream of an event, game, or fight – be it on a website like Twitch or something that is designed especially for a one-off.

Even hugely popular content creators like Logan Paul and KSI aren’t safe, as their first fight was restreamed illegally on YouTube and Twitch, as some streamers found even found very clever ways to rebroadcast the rematch. However, in the case of the Joshua and Ruiz rematch, there were no special tactics to avoid suspicion, but instead, a special entrant into the boxing ring.

As Joshua looked to reclaim the Heavyweight belts that he had lost to Ruiz back in June, streams popped up on Twitch and made it easy to watch the bout live from Saudi Arabia.

In the case of the ‘masterluiso’ channel, the streamer left his television in full view of a camera and allowed viewers to watch a slightly askew angle. Every now and again, he poked his face on stream and had something to say but at one point, he made his dog the focal point.

With the bout drawing to a close, the streamer picked up his small pup, held it aloft and placed it on-camera. He followed the boxing action around the screen before taking the dog’s paws and started throwing combinations of punches for a few seconds. 

The dog didn’t seem to mind it’s new heavyweight boxing status, but eventually, the streamer placed it back down and allowed viewers to carry on watching the remainder of the fight.

Of course, Joshua went on to reclaim his heavyweight crown, but it was probably the pup that won the hearts of the viewers of the illegal re-broadcast with close to 60,000 people re-watching the highlight clip.

Internet personalities Lexi Rivera and Ben Azelart have explained why they broke up after three years together, in an emotional video posted to YouTube.

Lexi Rivera is known in association with her brother Brent who is one of TikTok’s biggest creators with 35 million followers, while Lexi herself has more than 14 million followers on the app. The siblings also have a combined 19.5 million subscribers on YouTube.

Ben Azelart is also heavily associated with the siblings and has himself built up a huge following of 11 million followers on TikTok. But fans were devastated to find out this week that the duo were no longer a couple.

Lexi and Ben posted a video explaining why, saying that they thought they owed their fans the truth. Lexi said: “I have so much respect for Ben and he’s like literally one of the best people I’ve ever met in my entire life.” Ben responded, “I mean the same goes for me, Lexi is one of the nicest, sweetest, funniest people I’ve ever met.”

Addressing their viewers, Lexi explained why it took so long for them to officially break the news: “I know that it’s been super confusing for you guys and that is because it’s been just as confusing for us we’ve been very just on and off again and I don’t think we were really sure what we wanted to do until now.

“Having a relationship is one thing, but having a relationship online is a completely different story and it was very confusing for us. Honestly, it wasn’t easy being young like we were 15 and 16.

Lexi went on to say that the relationship no longer made them both happy. “We both had so much fun doing it, but I think as years went on it just became a little too complicated…I think what was hard is we want to make you guys happy as well as make ourselves happy.

“Ultimately we just didn’t do both and I think what’s most important was focusing on ourselves for now.”

Lexi and Ben finished by saying that they’re not parting ways forever and that they both felt it was just the wrong time to be together.
