AnEsonGib has competed in numerous boxing fights — amateur, exhibition and professional — over the past few years. He will be competing in another bout on Sept. 10, a faceoff against fellow YouTuber Austin McBroom.
The fight will be held at Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles and contested under McBroom’s Social Gloves platform. AnEsonGib is used to facing YouTubers, most notably Jake Paul. In 2020, AnEsonGib fought Paul on a Matchroom Boxing-led card headlined by Demetrius Andrade vs. Luke Keeler. While the fight didn’t go his way, AnEsonGib is hoping he has learned from that fight.

What happened in Jake Paul vs. AnEsonGib boxing fight?
The fight started off hot as the YouTubers did not touch gloves before the opening bell. That was a product of a fight week that included plenty of trash-talking.
Both swung wildly at one another. AnEsonGib attempted to get low to make it impossible for Paul to strike him down. Paul connected with a few jabs to AnEsonGib’s face. One right hand later, and AnEsonGib was down. A few moments later, a left hook took AnEsonGib down to the canvas.
AnEsonGib was able to land a right to Paul’s nose and bloody him. AnEsonGib could not take advantage, however. One right hand by Paul later, and AnEsonGib was down on his knees. The referee stopped the fight immediately after.
