Due to the ever-growing popularity of live streaming, more and more internet personalities are using platforms like Twitch and Mixer to broadcast their daily lives – but some of these streamers are more unique than others.

Twitch offers a variety of content for viewers across the board, from IRL streams to competitive gaming, sleight of hand tricks, tarot readings, and more.

A popular category on the site is it’s “Just Chatting” section, which allows broadcasters a chance to relax and interact with their fanbase, as well as being a kind of “catch-all” for activities outside of Twitch’s list of categories.

One such “Just Chatting” streamer goes by the tag “FoxenKin” – and she has an interesting way of welcoming new members into her fanbase.

While most streamers offer a simple shoutout or “thank you,” to new subscribers and followers, FoxenKin offers a rather “violent” activity in celebration of their addition to what she calls the “fox den.”

This celebration was recently demonstrated during an October 3 broadcast, when a new member subscribed to her channel while she was lounging with a beverage.

To honor her new subscriber, FoxenKin got up from her chair and delivered a sound kick to a punchbag sitting nearly out of frame of the camera, shouting, “Welcome to the fox den!”

The streamer then revealed that she’s been training in kickboxing for two years, after which she received two more followers, going back to deliver two additional kicks to her heavy bag as a means to welcome the new viewers.

FoxenKin’s “Just Chatting” streams are rife with athletic activities, from yoga to kickboxing work and more – which she’s obviously not afraid to incorporate into her fan interactions, as seen by her explosive welcome to new followers.

Twitch is a haven for all manner of unique content, but kickboxing isn’t in its usual repertoire of broadcasts – although many IRL streamers have caught a slew of unexpected moments during their time on the site, such as when one Korean streamer’s cat nearly set her house ablaze after turning on her infrared stove.

Needless to say, it’s always refreshing to find unique streams on Twitch, and it looks like FoxenKin is delivering big time.

Conor McGregor explains why YouTube boxing is “good business” for the sport

Jake Paul and Logan Paul helped popularize ‘YouTube Boxing’ in recent years, although it’s often described as a mockery of the sport. However, Conor McGregor explained why he isn’t against it and thinks it’s good business.

Conor McGregor has been focused on his upcoming UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier for a while now. However, that hasn’t stopped Jake Paul from doing his best to rope the former double champion into an exhibition boxing match.

Jake first called him out back in November 2020 after he knocked out Nate Robinson. Then, he taunted him to accept a $50 million fight offer several weeks later and has been flailing about ever since. 

He still hasn’t managed to get his attention. However, his antics did draw out comments from UFC President Dana White and Conor’s coach, John Kavanagh. Now, Conor has finally shared his thoughts on YouTube boxing as a whole, and here’s what he had to say.

Jake Paul has tried and failed to bait a response from Conor McGregor.

“A lot of people are criticizing [YouTube boxing] as maybe making a bit of a mockery of fighting,” asked an interviewer. It’s the predominant view among fans of combat sports. “I want you to weigh in on that for me.” 

“If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting, right?” said Conor. “They’re getting in, and they’re competing. I am not so much against it. The YouTube kid and the NBA star competing [was] good business.

“Am I into those competitions myself? It’s not the most high level if any level… [but] as they say if it makes dollars, it makes sense,” he added. “I know Dana and the UFC are not really into it, but… I’m not so against it. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”

Conor’s opinion might come as a surprise to fans who expected him to make scathing comments. However, as a businessman himself, it seems like he’s all for it. Plus, as he said, YouTube boxers are still fighting and giving it their all.

On another note, Conor didn’t seem too incensed about Jake. He barely mentioned him at all. 

Still, it’s only a matter of time before Jake responds, and there’s no doubt he won’t be too thrilled about being referred to as “the YouTube kid.”
