Jake Paul’s Team 10 business partner is set to join the YouTube fighting world
Who will own the city of England?
The Team 10 member who famously sang “England is my city” will get the chance to prove it against another U.K. YouTuber who’s intent on knocking him out in a boxing match.
With the Logan Paul-KSI boxing match reportedly simmering for August, and with Jake Paul set to fight ComedyShortsGamer on the undercard in a battle of younger brothers, the newest match for that event is apparently Nick Crompton vs. Ethan Payne, aka YouTube star Behzinga.
KSI began a month-long feud with the Paul brothers after he knocked out Joe Weller in the first YouTube boxing match that attracted more than 22 million YouTube page views in February, but he doesn’t seem to have much of a beef with Crompton, who’s also the COO of the Team Ten brand, and Behzinga.
KSI mentioned the idea of a Crompton vs. Behzinga match in a recent video, and in response, Behzinga posted his own video earlier this week, challenging Crompton to a fight.
“I want to fight you,” said Behzinga, a member of the gamer group The Sidemen who has 2.8 million subscriptions. “No one else. I want you, OK?”
Behzinga also said if Crompton didn’t respond, he’d be YouTube’s “biggest P-word.” On Wednesday, Crompton—who has 385,000 subscribers—had a comeback.
“I don’t know why you called me out—I feel like it’s a lose-lose for you,” he said. “We all know how the world works. Unfortunately, I think if you win, they’re going to say you beat up a gay guy. If I win, they’re going to say you got beat up by a gay guy. So, I don’t see the light at the end of the tunnel for you.”
But Crompton accepted anyway, and now, the fight is on. The city of England, I imagine, can’t wait to see which YouTuber will be its rightful owner afterward.
