Inching ever closer is the much-hyped about YouTube vs TikTok fight event this weekend – with social media sensations Bryce Hall and Austin McBroom headlining the show.
Of course, as you can imagine, the Logan Paul vs Floyd Mayweather fight has dominated the headlines recently.
But it is this weekend’s highly-anticipated YouTubers vs TikTokers event that will jump into the limelight and see a new generation of social media stars foray into the world of boxing – because apparently, that’s what people want to see.
The biggest draw is a fight between YouTube’s McBroom and TikTok’s Hall.
In the lead up to this fight, the two have been slinging mud at each other across social media. Most recently, Austin mocked a mug shot of Bryce Paul from when he got arrested.
The pair also scrapped at their press conference last month and nearly clashed again in a recent brawl.
Both Bryce and Hall have since met during Saturday’s weigh-in – and it was clear that there was no love lost between them.
Dubbed the ‘Battle of the Platforms’, the boxing event will have eight fights in total, including two in the free undercard segment, while six will be part of the major event.
Also fighting on the card and flying the flag for the Brits will be Deji, KSI’s younger brother, and AnEsonGib – who both have boxing experience, having come up against Jake Paul in recent years.
You can watch the trailer for the event below, but be warned – you will, almost certainly, cringe.
Don’t expect to see the next Saul Canelo Alvarez or Manny Pacquiao, either – the standard is more than likely to be appalling, to say the very least.
With all that said, though, let’s take a look at what we know about the event so far.
