Controversial British TikToker Mizzy, known for his boundary-pushing pranks, has issued a public challenge to fellow influencer iShowSpeed.
In the challenge, Mizzy has proposed a boxing match between the two internet personalities.
The Rise of Influencer Boxing
Influencer boxing matches have grown into a lucrative venture over the past few years, thanks to figures like KSI, and brothers Jake and Logan Paul.
Various celebrities have also stepped into the ring to duel it out with social media influencers, solidifying influencer boxing as a new sub-genre in combat sports.
Companies like KSI’s Misfits Boxing are now hosting regular events where YouTubers, streamers, and other content creators engage in boxing matches, regardless of their size or status.
Mizzy’s Debut in The Ring
After a series of media appearances, brushes with the law, and viral moments for reasons many deem unfavorable, Mizzy—whose real name is Bacari-Bronze Constantine O’Garro—seems ready to enter the boxing ring. Mizzy has set his sights on a high-profile match with Speed to make his boxing debut.
The Proposed Mizzy vs. Speed Match
On June 13, Mizzy took to Twitter to announce his intentions. Sharing a graphic titled “Fight of the Year,” Mizzy called out Speed.
The post featured a match graphic pitting iShowSpeed against Mizzy, with the Misfits Boxing logo prominently displayed in the background.
Mizzy’s call to action came with a blunt message, “Don’t be pussi,” directly challenging Speed.
Awaiting Speed’s Response
At the time of writing, Speed has yet to respond to Mizzy’s challenge. Interestingly, Mizzy hinted that he might have had another run-in with the law just a day before his call-out to Speed.
Speed, meanwhile, has been dealing with personal issues. Recently, he was attacked by a spectator during the FA Cup Final between Manchester United and Manchester City.
Speed later disclosed that they had settled their differences after the game.
A New Chapter for Influencer Combat Sports?
As Mizzy awaits a response from Speed, the world watches to see how this match could impact the future of influencer combat sports.
Will this boxing match be another viral moment for Mizzy? Or could it signify a shift in his public persona from controversial prankster to serious sportsman? Only time will tell.
