Logan Paul and KSI have inspired a new generation of social media influencers to become boxers.
A new boxing event is taking place in June and it’s being dubbed as the “Battle of the Platforms.” Some of the biggest stars from YouTube are fighting the biggest stars from TikTok. There are eight total fights, including two in the free undercard segment and six in the main event.
The biggest draw is a fight between YouTube’s Austin McBroom and TikTok’s Bryce Hall. McBroom gained fame as the founder of The ACE Family on YouTube, a page that boasts over 19 million subscribers and 4.2 billion views. Hall is a popular TikTok creator with 19.9 million followers on the platform.
This is the biggest event of the night given the history between the two content creators. McBroom challenged Hall to a fight in December 2020.
