Paul vs Gib live stream telecast from Meridian at Island Gardens, Florida, USA WBO Middileweight championship estimated ringwalk Thursday 7PM.
While they’re on the undercard, YouTubers AnEsonGib and Jake Paul have carved out their own share of the spotlight heading into their fight on Thursday night.
For AnEsonGib, the gamer/fighter feels the pressure and spotlight of his first pro fight will “eat” Paul alive inside the Miami Gardens.
“I think madness is embedded into my DNA,” Gib told Sky Sports. “For him, when push involves shove, he likes to possess control in every situation of his life. this is often a kind of situation when he doesn’t have control. He doesn’t have control of his opponent, he won’t be on top of things of the fight, so i feel that sort of pressure will eat him a touch bit.”
“For me, I thrive there. you’ll just see my walkouts. Those moments are where I thrive. The fight itself is where I thrive.”
“Realistically, everyone knows what I’m bringing,” said Gib who is being trained by his friend/mentor KSI’s trainer, Viddal Riley, while Paul is being mentored by former world champion Shane Mosley. “He’s bringing athleticism, he’s the higher boxer out of the Pauls and what am I bringing? I’m bringing heat. Twelve rounds of action to a six-round fight and we’ll see if he can affect it. It’s war. That’s what’s it, the fight is war.
“It’s within the USA, so Jake goes to possess the house crowd, but you recognize what, boo me, boo me, because once I beat your man ahead of you, I’m getting to have my hand raised and I’m getting to check out everyone in their eyes.”
Headlining the cardboard on January 30th are going to be WBO middleweight champion Demetrius Andrade’s defense against Luke Keeler, with Tevin Farmer defending his IBF super featherweight title against Joseph Diaz.
