Boxing: Jake Paul vs AnEsonGib Betting Odds and Prediction

Jake Paul vs AnEsonGib Betting Odds

If fans didn’t get enough excitement from the two KSI vs Logan Paul boxing matches that drew huge viewership, especially in their rematch in November, then have no fear as DAZN is putting on another boxing match with two YouTubers in Jake Paul, Logan’s brother, and AnEsonGib. The two will be the co-main event of the boxing card on January 30 in Miami as a six-round cruiserweight bout. Paul, who has just shy of 20 million YouTube followers, wants to avenge his brother’s loss and eyes a bout with KSI in the future, but AnEsonGib, with two million YouTube followers, looks to thwart Paul’s hopes.

Online sportsbook Bovada made AnEsonGib the slight -130 favorite with Jake Paul coming back at EVEN money. However, plenty of action has come in on Paul, flipping the odds to the point he is now the -145 favorite with Gib coming back at +115.

Jake Paul vs AnEsonGib

With KSI and Logan Paul’s rematch bringing 12,000 fans to the Staples Center and – according to boxing promoter Eddie Hearn – selling more than Anthony Joshua’s USA debut against Andy Ruiz five months prior, Hearn and DAZN are trying to catch lightning in a bottle once again. Instead of LA, Jake Paul and AnEsonGib will be on the East Coast fighting in Miami, Florida, at the Meridian at Island Gardens, not far from Hard Rock Stadium where Super Bowl 54 will be played just three days later.

Also on this card are three world title fights as Daniel Roman defends his IBF and WBA junior featherweight titles against Murodjon Akhmadaliev, Tevin Farmer defends his IBF junior lightweight belt against Joseph Diaz Jr., and Demetrius Andrade takes on Luke Keeler with Andrade’s WBO middleweight belt up for grabs in the headliner. People may recognize Keeler’s name from his public spat with UFC superstar Conor McGregor when the two agreed to have a boxing match last August, but the bout never came to fruition.

Jake Paul Boxing Analysis

Boxing isn’t uncharted territory for Jake Paul as he fought on the KSI vs Logan Paul I fight card, taking on KSI’s brother Deji. Jake won that bout with a fifth-round stoppage after Deji’s corner threw in the towel during a barrage of punches from the American. Jake had a really good game plan, working behind his jab, which was effective due to his reach advantage. He hurt Deji several times throughout the fight but was patient, choosing his shots and sticking to his jab, both high and low. When Deji had his back against the ropes, Paul was a little more aggressive, throwing combinations with a good mix between head and body.

Defensively, the 22-year-old relied on moving at the waist to avoid strikes or using his feet to escape danger. His hands were often found very low around his waist and he didn’t have a ton of head movement. That said, his reflexes are quite good and because he is so patient offensively, his stamina stays strong, allowing him to react to punches more effectively.

AnEsonGib Boxing Analysis

Similar to Jake, AnEsonGib also competed on the first KSI vs Logan Paul card as he took on Jay Swingler, he of 1.5 million subscribers. Gib won that bout by a score of 40-35 in a four-round bout with one round being 10-8 due to a knockdown. The United Arab Emirates native was very aggressive in the match, constantly dipping and bobbing left and right. There were little to no jabs thrown by either boxer; it was mostly sloppy hooks.

With Gib constantly moving and getting in Swingler’s face, he was able to land frequently because of the pressure and I was impressed that he was able to keep that pace for the duration of the four rounds. He did slow a little bit in the fourth, but not terribly so, though it’ll be interesting to keep an eye on that in a six-round bout with Paul. Additionally, with the lack of defense and jabs, Gib did get hit quite a bit throughout the fight. However, he wore the damage well and continued to stand his ground and swing from the hips.

Jake Paul vs AnEsonGib Prediction

It’ll be interesting to see if AnEsonGib can put Paul on his heels with his forward pressure, but the way Jake used his jab in his fight with Deji could stop Gib in his tracks. Additionally, I give the power advantage to Paul. If Gib slows down in the later rounds, that could play a big factor. AnEsonGib will have the speed advantage, allowing him to get on the inside of Paul’s range to land his hooks to the body and up to the head. In the end, though, I like Paul’s power and use of the jab to slow Gib down and ultimately win by decision.

Prediction: Jake Paul (-145) via decision
