A YouTube vs TikTok boxing event has been confirmed and features some of your favorite social media stars. Here’s everything you need to know about the fight.
For months, YouTuber Austin McBroom has been challenging TikTok star Bryce Hall to a boxing match, but he has always refused.
Finally, Bryce accepted the deal after offering a $5 million fee, and the fight is officially on.
But it’s not just Austin and Bryce who will be fighting. It’s now turned into a huge YouTube vs. TikTok event, promoted as a “battle of the platforms.”

TikTok stars are fighting YouTubers in a ‘Battle of the Platforms’ as the influencer-boxing boom continues
Austin McBroom vs. Bryce Hall
Main Event. Hall and McBroom have some history with each other after McBroom named Hall in a now-deleted Instagram post in late 2020. The two then exchanged a few tweets on Twitter in March and the fight was announced a few days later.
AnEsonGib vs. Tayler Holder
We have seen AnEsonGib fight before when he suffered an embarrassing TKO against Jake Paul in the first round in 2020. AnEsonGib is looking to bounce back from that ugly loss in a fight against TikTok’s Tayler Holder. In a video released before the fight, Holder had some concerns about the weight disparity, saying he weighs 165 pounds while AnEsonGib weighs closer to 190-195 pounds (per Holder).
Deji vs. Vinnie Hacker
Deji, KSI’s brother, also lost to Jake Paul, although it was before Paul became a professional boxer. Deji will face Vinnie Hacker, a TikTok star with 7.2 million followers on the platform. We’ll see if Deji’s boxing experience plays a role in this fight.
DDG vs. Nate Wyatt
Both DDG and Nate Wyatt are musicians and give this fight a theme. Although neither have any obvious beef with each other. However, DDG said that he is planning a KO against Wyatt.
FaZe Jarvis vs. Michael Le
FaZe Jarvis is a member of the FaZe clan. He gained popularity when he played the game Fortnite, but he was banned from playing the game after he was caught Aimbotting in Fortnite. Le is a popular dancer on TikTok with 48.5 million followers, which is the eleventh most on the platform.
Tanner Fox vs. Ryland Storms
Tanner Fox is a YouTuber best known for his stunts. His videos have garnered over 2 billion views combined and helped him reach over 10 million subscribers. He faces off against popular TikTok star Ryland Storms, who has 4.3 million followers on the platform.
Landon McBroom vs. Ben Azelart.
As you can probably tell from the last name, Landon McBroom is the brother of Austin McBroom, who fights in the Main Event. He will be taking on Ben Azelart, who is technically in the TikTok category, but is a successful YouTuber in his own right with over 1 billion views on his main channel.
Ryan Johnston vs. Cale Saurage
There are more family connections here, as Ryan Johnston is the brother of Catherine Paiz, who is married to Austin McBroom. He will be fighting against TikTok star Cale Saurage in this undercard bout.
