There is no doubt that boxing and the world of influencers have collided in a big way in the past few years. From the moment Joe Weller and his friend Theo Baker had the first YouTube boxing fight, and KSI‘s said he would fight the winner, a seed was planted. Following this KSI went on to fight and win against Logan Paul who only recently fought in an exhibition with the undefeated boxing legend, Floyd “Money” Mayweather, and the rest we could say is history.
Until now, wherein one event, Social Gloves: Battle Of The Platforms is about to happen. And if you’re just a fan of the content creators involved or a boxing fan, or like this writer, both, it’s safe to say we’re about to be fed with some epic content from some of the largest creators on both popular platforms.
With massive names in social media signed up to fight and the main ticket being The ACE Family, Austin McBroom and YouTuber and TikTok star Bryce Hall are going head to head. It’s set to be an event that’s inarguably shining more light on the sport of boxing and bringing new eyes and younger people into the sport.
The controversial, entertaining, and amusing stars that have also signed up for this include KSI’s brother Deji whose first-ever fight was with Jake Paul, but despite his loss in that match, he is so far the only person who has gone against Jake and can say he was not KO’d or TKO’d. So, it will be interesting to see his fight against Vinnie Hacker. Both of them have been very respectful of each other on the run-up to this fight.
