Jake Paul Tells KSI 'You're Next' After Winning Boxing Match With AnEsonGib In First Round
Jake Paul has called out fellow YouTuber KSI for a fight after winning a boxing match against AnEsonGib in the first round.
Paul had barely celebrated his technical knockout win against the YouTuber before he was finding his next target.
The 23-year-old jumped up to the ropes and lapped up the cheers from his adoring fans and then looked for KSI in the crowd.
Once he found him, Paul pointed at him with his gloves.
KSI, real name Olajide Olayinka Williams "JJ" Olatunji, admittedly looked pretty shocked that the match was all over before the bell sounded for Round 2.
But once all the pomp and ceremony had finished, KSI jumped into the ring for a bit of face-to-face action with Paul. The pair started mouthing off against each other before Paul said: "You're next...let's make it happen."
KSI was pretty confident in himself, telling Paul that he beat his older brother Logan in a match last year.
The YouTuber defeated Logan by split decision 56-55, 57-54, 56-55, despite Paul outlanding KSI 61 to 56, according to CompuBox.
In the ring tonight, KSI didn't seem to take the bait for a new feud, insisting that he beat Logan fair and square and didn't need to prove himself. That didn't tame Jake, with the fighter continually asking him to make the fight happen.

The first round win certainly shocked everyone who had spent hours watching undercard fights, only for one of the main events to be wrapped up in a couple of seconds.
Paul came out swinging in the opening round and was a fierce competitor. His opponent did his best to deflect the attacks but each knock to the head left him more and more dizzy.
The referee eventually called the match and awarded Paul, who boasts a whopping 19.7 million subscribers, the win on a technical knockout.
But Paul will not only be celebrating the boxing win, but also being able to keep his home. The YouTuber says he was going to bet his Team 10 house on his fight against AnEsonGib.
Team 10 is a group of aspiring social influencers who live with Paul, and will probably be collectively breathing a sigh of relief that they're not homeless.
One fan told Jake that they had bet two different people $100 (£77) that he would win. This must have got Jake all excited because he then responded with a photo of the Team 10 house.
He wrote on Instagram: "If you were smart, you would bet your whole house on it like me."
Replying to another fan, he ripped into Logan's coach Shannon Briggs. He posted: "My coach who is a legend @ShaneMosley but who is also very humble & realistic thinks I take him out in the 3rd [round] and he knows boxing like the back of his hand."
