We’ll attempt to find out the answer to that question on Saturday in Battle of the Platforms, an event pitting YouTube stars against TikTok stars in a boxing match. The headline fight will be Austin McBroom vs. Bryce Hall, which has some intrigue as the two have had a back-and-forth before the fight started.

Other opponents include two YouTube stars who have lost to Jake Paul — AnEsonGib and Deji — and popular TikTok influencers like Tayler Holder, Nate Wyatt and Michael Le among others. While AnEsonGib and Deji lost to Paul, they at least have some boxing experience, which is more than others on this fight card can say.
Nevertheless, it should be an interesting event. Even beyond boxing, there’s reason to watch as there will be a number of musical performances throughout. The musical guests include DJ Khaled, Lil Baby, Migos, Trippie Redd and more.
