YouTube boxing has become the latest trend to catch fire with KSI, Jake Paul and his brother Logan Paul all competing in the ring.
Now look, we know it’s not championship-level boxing, but they’re still giving it a good go despite having little-to-no previous experience.
Paul, 25, reminded fans on Saturday why he deserves to be at the top of the pecking order.
The American social media star bested UFC legend Anderson Silva via unanimous decision over the course of eight rounds in their intriguing cruiserweight contest.
And it’s no surprise he sits above KSI in GIVEMESPORT’s top ten P4P list, despite the Brit’s two wins over Swarmz and Luis Pineda.
Fellow stars Deji, Slim Albaher and Salt Papi also feature on the list.
But there is no room for Austin McBroom following his loss to AnEsonGib in September.

Take a look below at how GIVEMESPORT.com has rated the top 10 best YouTube boxers in the world.
Honourable mentions: Alex Wassabi, Faze Jarvis, RackaRack, Deen The Great.
1. Jake Paul
Jake Paul tops GIVEMESPORT’s YouTube boxing rankings
Record: 6-0 (4 KOs)
Love him or hate him, Paul has looked head and shoulders above the rest, with the 25-year-old yet to taste defeat from his six fights.
He has won four of his bouts by knockout, with three of his last five victories coming inside the distance.
Fans are hoping to see him in a celebrity grudge match against his bitter rival KSI at some point later next year.

Record: 3-0 (2 KOs)
Speaking of KSI, it’s his turn up next.
Training out of London Shootfighters in Wembley under the Demetriades brothers, KSI made his highlight anticipated return to the ring earlier this year, winning twice in one night – and in convincing fashion.
However, it’s arguably the level of opponents he has faced which has let him down at the moment, although that’s through no fault of his own despite his best efforts.
3. Slim Albaher
Slim Albaher is the first YouTuber to win ICB titles in two weight divisions
Record: 5-0 (4 KOs)
Having knocked out all but one of his opponents, it’s safe to say Slim Albaher has dynamite in his hands.
Following his knockout victory over Faze Temperr, the American has recorded four KOs in five wins, with a ratio of 80 per cent.
Shades of Prince Naseem Hamed, this one.
4. Salt Papi
Record: 2-0 (1 KO)
Whisper it quietly but Papi has the potential for greater things.
The TikTok star stopped Andy Warski in August to set up a potential blockbuster bout against Albaher.
He has also arguably got some of the best footwork we’ve seen out of the whole lot.
5. Logan Paul
Logan Paul went the distance with Floyd Mayweather
Now granted, Logan may not have got a win yet, but going the distance with Floyd Mayweather takes some doing regardless of how he did it.
He’s reportedly eyeing a return to the ring early next year once he’s finished competing in WWE.
Dillon Danis and Andrew Tate have been touted as potential opponents.
Record: 4-1 (3 KOs)
Gib didn’t get off to the best of starts after his disappointing loss to Paul in 2020.
But he has since returned to winning ways after defeating Tayler Holder in convincing fashion.
Before following that up with the biggest win of his career against McBroom last time out.
Deji is set to take on Floyd Mayweather in Dubai on November 13
Record: 1-0 (1 KO)
Who would have thought Deji would still be fighting after three consecutive defeats?
Now he’s set to take on Mayweather in an exhibition bout in Dubai on November 13.
Let that sink in.
8. King Kenny
With over 2 million subscribers on YouTube, Kenny is also best known for being a member of the Beta Squad, where he regularly films videos with Filly and Chunkz.
And while he has had mixed success in the ring, he holds a majority decision win over Faze Sensei.
(We still refuse to accept that he beat Sensei by the way.)
9. Jay Swingler
Jay Swingler is the ICB super-middleweight champion
Record: 1-1 (1 KO)
One half of TGFbro, Swingler is coming off a win over Cherdleys, who he knocked out in the first round.
The first-round knockout was the first of his career.
In truth it was a complete mismatch but we won’t hold that against him.
10. Faze Sensei
Record: 1-1 (1 KO)
A former MMA fighter, Sensei should probably be number one on this list at least in terms of technique at least.
But as his record suggests rightly or wrongly not every result has gone his way.
So going by that it’s hard to put him anyplace higher but it would also be wrong to leave him off it completely.
