Jake Paul calls Gib a doormat he’s ‘wiping his shoes on’ before fight vs. KSI

first_imgJake Paul and AnEsonGib had their first press conference Wednesday to promote their fight on Jan. 30, and things got interesting.While the two YouTube stars did exchange profanities, the press conference wasn’t nearly as personal as the one held by Paul’s brother Logan in 2019. Wednesday’s meeting between the two fighters was short and to the point, with a few insults mixed in. Paul seemingly has an advantage in the fight because he’s been preparing a lot earlier than Gib. It was announced during KSI’s win over Logan Paul in early November that Jake Paul had become a professional boxer. So he knew he was going to fight, but didn’t know who.Gib admitted during Wednesday’s press conference he just arrived in America earlier this month, and started his training once he got here. Paul joked, “You used all of your American Airlines miles to get knocked the f— out.” We’ll know for sure who takes the victory on Thursday, Jan. 30 in Miami. The fight will be streamed live on DAZN as an undercard match where there will be three world title fights held. The main event will be Demetrius Andrade putting his WBO middleweight title up for grabs against Luke Keeler.

We saw KSI defeat Logan Paul in December, and Jake says he wants to avenge his brother’s loss. When asked about this Wednesday, he explained that point in more detail.”Gib’s a doormat to me,” Paul said. “He’s merely something I’m wiping my shoes on, on the path to avenge my brother. My brother lost because of a two-point deduction, it was a controversial win for KSI. But KSI got the win — and all respect to him — but I’m a different fighter and I have a different mentality. And after I beat Gib, KSI is going to get the smoke. KSI’s already said he’s down, so to me this is where this is naturally all going. I’m going to be here again in a couple of months after this fool gets knocked out.”When asked if it seems like Paul is overlooking him to fight KSI, Gib responded, “That sounds like his problem, not mine.”Paul and Gib have a boxing history, although very brief. Paul fought as the co-main event for KSI vs. Logan Paul (the first fight) and beat KSI’s brother, Deji. Gib was also an undercard on the initial fight, where he defeated Jay Swingler, another YouTube personality.Today’s “Face-Off”#PaulvsGib pic.twitter.com/scEsBZY05V— DAZN USA (@DAZN_USA) January 8, 2020When asked why Paul decided to fight Gib, he got honest for pretty much the only time in the entire press conference.”To be fair, he has a strong loyal fanbase that has KSI’s fans behind him,” Paul said. “I did a Twitter poll asking people who I should fight, and he won the poll.”Other names mentioned in the poll were FouseyTube, FaZe_Sensei, Soulja Boy, Dillon Danis and Jeff Wittek. Join DAZN to watch Paul vs. Gib and 100+ fight nights a yearlast_img
