Although their older brothers match ended in a draw, the fight between Jake Paul and Deji Olatunji had a clear winner.
The undercard match may have been more satisfying than the headliners because of their decision to name a winner. Jake Paul surprised everyone with his win because most fans and critics believed Deji, aka ComedyShortsGamer, would beat him. Deji’s loss was even more surprising because he landed a great punch that left Jake with a bloody nose. Fans comforted 21-year-old Deji by letting him know that was an achievement on its own.
Deji was so down on himself because he lost, not realizing he became a legend anyway to most of his fans just for doing this to Jake Paul’s nose. 😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/auCNgtmnp8

The Paul brothers are known for being cocky and after Jake’s win he did not disappoint. He used the entire fight as a marketing platform for his new line RNBO which stands for Rise n’ Be Original. Jake was RNBO’d down to the socks. His entire outfit from his headgear to his jacket featured the RNBO logo. When it was time for him to enter the ring he had boxing legend Michael Buffer announce the label as well. His confidence paid off because over 800,000 viewers saw the match against Deji and the victory speech that followed.
Like Logan, KSI and Deji, Jake mentioned wanting to go pro in his speech and called out Chris Brown! He mentioned the adversity he’s faced in the past year which led to him creating RNBO. We’re guessing he’s referring to the dissolution of the original Team 10 and the drama that ensued.
Well, RNBO’s message is a bit more positive than the earlier part of Jake’s year and fans are feeling it.
