British YouTube personality-turned-boxer KSI wants to add another Paul to his haul following his victory over Logan in November of last year, if feisty scenes following Jake Paul’s midweek bout with AnEsonGib are anything to go by.
Paul the Younger had only mere moments to recuperate after stopping his opponent in the first round in Miami, after dropping him twice in the opening minutes, before he was tete-a-tete with his sibling’s bitter nemesis KSI.
Pretty soon KSI may very well be facing up to the entire Paul clan, perhaps pooch Paul may well be a potential pugilist.
While Logan was ecstatic in the crowd following his sibling’s victory, as Paul perched himself atop the ring, AnEsonGib’s mate KSI was soon thrust into the action. Facing Logan at the Staples Center, Los Angeles, at the tail end of last year, KSI was awarded the result via split decision and that feud and narrative show no signs of abating.
“KSI’s next,” declared Jake Paul in the ring.
“Where is that *****? KSI is going to get clocked next.”
The statement of intent prompted KSI to wade out of his compatriot AnEsonGib’s corner to confront the cocky Cleveland native and produce his own retort.
“You just wait, I f***ed up your bro didn’t I? You’re worse than your bro.”
“You had to beat my bro by a bad call," Paul replied.
KSI then replied: “A bad call? I lost two points as well b****, shut up," before Paul announced "Let’s make it happen,” coming so close to his rival he could probably lick his dreadlocks.
It was handbags at dawn from the two social media sensations, with them having to be separated by security. The pair certainly know how to whip up a storm.
There certainly seems to be no love lost between the two camps, with Logan soon subsequently placed back in the spotlight.
“Your brother feels like he needs to avenge your loss… to redeem the Paul name. Is that something that is in your heart and your mind?” Logan was questioned by Sky Sports, “Does he need to do that for you?”
Logan, however, felt the need to turn attention back onto his brother’s midweek success story:
“I think Jake proved tonight that tonight was all about him. This has nothing to do with me.
“It’s noble that he wants to ‘redeem the Paul name’ but I think he’s doing an amazing job.
“Jake is his own person and tonight he proved that.”
YouTube stars taking the boxing headlines has proven divisive and controversial, but this particular saga shows no signs of abating.
