KSI And Jake Paul Involved In Bizarre Face-Off At End Of Fight
By Mike Parrott
KSI and Jake Paul look to be the next, and most likely last bout of YouTube Boxing. After Jake Paul's victory against Aneson Gib, KSI and Paul looked set for a future fight.
In the now fourth event of YouTube personalities Boxing, Jake Paul came on top, dominating British YouTuber, Aneson Gib (birth name: Ali Loui Al-Fakhri), knocking him out within the first round.
With KSI being coached by the same Coach (Viddal Riley) as Gib, JJ was at the fight and promptly came into the ring moments after the fight had ended.
KSI and Jake Paul has been rumoured for many years now with KSI initially calling out Jake Paul after his debut fight against Joe Weller.

Promptly after JJ's call-out, Jake rejected the challenge saying he didn't need the fight for his reputation, in which Logan Paul, Jake's Brother, accepted the challenge.
After a draw and a points decision KSI seemed destined to hang up his gloves and move on from Boxing (much to the delight of Boxing fans), however, the Jake Paul situation seems different.

With Jake Paul constantly calling the Gib fight a stepping-stone to KSI, the English personality seems like he has no choice but to fight the other Paul Brother.
The both seem up for it too. KSI and Jake Paul shared a face-off after the Paul-Gib fight with it seeming like they confirmed a future fight with a date set to be decided.

The face-off might be mocked constantly by fans alike due to the level of cringe. And they could both admit that this, and their respective press conferences have been extremely high in terms of cringe.
However, all these YouTubers are still putting their safety on the line when fighting so Boxing fans have to respect that at well.
One thing for sure though, is that YouTubers Boxing isn't going anywhere.
