Jake Paul and AnEsonGib playfully shoved, slapped and trash talked one another in their face-off last night during an LA press conference to promote their upcoming clash.
The grudge match between the two YouTube sensations will take centre stage as the co-main event of a huge night of boxing from Miami on January 30.
Jake Paul, 22, is the most viewed internet star in the United States with more than 35 million followers across YouTube, Instagram, TikTok and Twitter.
In addition to his huge success as a content creator on social media, the Ohio native, who now calls California his home, has flourished as a musician and actor in recent years.
Paul made his amateur boxing debut in 2018, where he defeated KSI’s brother via TKO in the fifth round.

AnEsonGib is a UK YouTuber who initially came onto the scene through his humorous videos and commentary on the popular football video game series FIFA.
Gib previously fought as an amateur, the first time on the KSI vs Joe Weller undercard in February 2018 and then again on the KSI v Logan Paul undercard in August 2018, coming away with victories in both contests.
The duo will be making their professional debuts at the end of the month and the fight will be the second pro boxing match between YouTube rivals promoted by Eddie Hearn, following on from KSI’s victory over Jake’s older brother Logan in November.
Paul, for this upcoming fight, is being trained by former world champion ‘Sugar’ Shane Mosely in the iconic Big Bear mountains.
AnEsonGib is trained by Viddal Riley, who previously oversaw KSI to his victory against Logan Paul.
After watching the face-off, fight fans will no doubt be unimpressed by the farcical actions of both men ahead of what could be one of the worst bouts the sport has ever seen.
