Sadly, the Paul brothers were back in the ring this week. This time, younger brother Jake Paul cut his teeth as a boxer against fellow YouTube star AnEsonGib. Paul won the fight in the first round via technical knockout, although the "highlights" of that fight show that it's nowhere near as dominant as the result might attest on paper.
Not only did we see a real lack of punching power or defensive ability from either guy, but we saw one of the most technically undisciplined "boxers" that ever stepped in to a ring in the Big Gibber.
When you make no effort to protect yourself in a boxing match, you're going to get washed. Wrecked. Dusted. You don't need to be any kind of expert-level analyst to figure that out.
The world of YouTube celebrity boxing has officially wriggled its way into being "a thing" -- at least in the eyes of streaming service DAZN and Matchroom Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn -- and Logan and Jake Paul appear to be at the forefront of this burgeoning industry, as cringeworthy as it may be. Based on the skills Jake showed in this fight, along with Logan's rematch against KSI in November, neither of these guys will be getting a crack at Canelo Alvarez anytime in the next millennium or so.
