Jake Paul has been branded as “scared” by fans after unseen footage emerged of his reaction to KSI’s devastating first-round knockout of FaZe Temperrr.

KSI chalked up another win in his fledgling boxing career on Saturday night after making quick work of rival FaZe Temperrr at Wembley Arena in London.

Following on from his win at the Misfits Boxing event, KSI seized the opportunity to call out fellow YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake for a super-fight.

Jake immediately hit back at KSI and dismissed his win over FaZe Temperrr, with the YouTube star mocking ‘JJ’ for gaining “more confidence” from the fight.

“When you repeatedly admit your career is based on reaching me as the final level, the final point, you are acknowledging that I am the A-side,” he tweeted on Sunday.

“Same for me when I reach Canelo [Alvarez] as my final level. Canelo is the A-side.”

However, footage has now emerged from an alternative angle to show Jake’s reaction straight after KSI’s win.

Jake was subdued with his responses when asked about KSI’s knockout, appearing to pretend that he didn’t watch the moment it happened.

Responding to the idea of KSI wanting to fight him before the end of 2023, the 25-year-old American insisted that it was “lots of talk” and “talk is cheap.”

Footage of Jake’s reaction, which can be viewed in the video player above, quickly made the rounds of social media.

However, KSI’s legion of fans were far from convinced with Jake’s lackadaisical reaction and believe the undefeated boxing star is “looking nervous” now.


“Jake looking [a] bit scared,” one fan said.

Another TikTok user posted: “Jake looks so scared. How can [you] say talk is cheap when he just knocked someone out?”

“Jake is looking nervous,” a third added.

Someone else commented: “Jake putting a brave face on, fair enough. The man is lost [right now].”

And a fifth fan wrote: “Him not reacting to the fight shows that he’s worried.”
