Successful YouTubers in Boxing
Published by NYSB Staff
Last Updated: 20. Dec 2023.

In recent years, boxing has become an increasingly popular sport worldwide, in part thanks to the influx of celebrities who have decided to pick it up as a hobby. However, most of these have one thing in common – they are all YouTubers! 

Back in 2018, internet stars Joe Weller and KSI began the trend, going head-to-head in the ring. The tickets for the match sold out and brought in plenty of revenue for the organizers, Copper Box. In fact, there were a combined 20 million viewers, both in person and online.


Nowadays, more and more YouTubers have seen potential in this trend and are following suit, and whilst former boxers such as Mike Tyson say that it's keeping the game alive, others believe it's causing controversy on the scene.

Even if there is a divide in opinion among boxing fans, they can't deny how much profit and new supporters YouTubers have brought to boxing, not to mention an increased interest in betting on boxing matches, which has done wonders for the sport.

So let's get ready to rumble, and explore the most prominent YouTubers to have entered the boxing world.

About Jake Paul

Subscribers/Followers: 20.4 million (YouTube), 21.4 million (Instagram)

Estimated Career Earnings: $38 million (accumulated net worth)

Weight Class: Cruiserweight

Height: 6’ 0" / 183cm

Reach: 76” / 193cm

Born: Jan 17, 1997 (Cleveland, Ohio, USA)

Nickname: "The Problem Child"

Paul began his career in 2013 by posting videos of himself on Vine. By the time this platform was discontinued, he had gained 5.3 million followers, so he decided to launch a YouTube account, where he became known for posting pranks, controversies and producing hip-hop music. 

After accumulating even more subscribers, the Disney Channel hired him to feature on their show, Bizaardvark, but he left midway through the second series to focus on more adult roles.

Combining music with boxing his career, Jake has also released a single titled Champion, which alluded to his rival, Deji Olatunji, a fellow YouTuber. He has since set up an organization called Boxing Bullies, which aims to tackle bullying among children, and has become committed to his sporting dreams.

A controversial figure, he has repeatedly called out the likes of UFC President Dana White, accusing him of underpaying his fighters, as well as top UFC fighters such as Conor McGregor, the latter of whom he has challenged to a boxing match on numerous occasions.

Career Highlights

Jake Paul won his first professional boxing match by knockout against fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib. He faced former NBA player Nate Robinson in his second pro fight and won by second-round knockout, becoming the first YouTuber to win a professional boxing match on pay-per-view. 

He then faced former UFC fighter Ben Askren and won by first-round TKO. This fight was a major step forward for his career, as it earned him the biggest payday of his career and further cemented him as a legitimate boxer with mainstream appeal. 

Paul defeated another UFC fighter, Tyron Woodley, by sixth-round knockout in their second fight. Recently, Paul suffered his first loss in an 8-round match against boxer Tommy Fury, before bouncing back to defeat MMAfighter Nate Diaz going 10 rounds.

Reach: 76” / 193cm

Born: April 1, 1995 (Westlake, Ohio, USA)

Logan Paul has since moved away from boxing and into the world of professional wrestling, signing on to compete in the WWE.

Career Highlights

Logan Paul began his career by fighting long-time rival and now business partner KSI in an amateur bout, resulting in a draw, before losing the rematch at professional level.

He has since managed a controversial exhibition fight draw with boxing legend Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr, and secured his first professional win against Dillon Danis in 2023.

About Deji

Subscribers/Followers: 10.7 million (YouTube), 3.1 million (Instagram)

Estimated Career Earnings: $5 million (accumulated net worth)

Weight Class: Cruiserweight

Height: 5’ 8” / 172cm

Reach: 69” / 173cm

Nickname: "The Tank"

Born: December 9, 1996 (London, England, UK)

Deji Olatunji had always wanted to be a famous UK internet star, and his parents allowed him to follow his dreams after seeing how successful careers in this field could be. 

A smaller YouTuber than some of the rest on this list, he was born in London and built his following with videos on pranks and gaming, as well as a few acting contracts for major broadcasting networks.

As the younger brother of KSI, Deji followed in his brother's footsteps and made the jump from YouTube to the fighting ring. 

He took on his first match against Jake Paul, to whom he lost, but he is debating organizing a rematch against the US star. He also faced off against the legendary Floyd 'Money' Mayweather, losing by TKO in the sixth round.

Career Highlights

Deji began his boxing career with a loss to Jake Paul in 2018 due to a corner stoppage, with his corner throwing in the towel in the sixth round. He returned to the ring to fight TikTok star Vinnie Hacker, losing via TKO, before taking on fellow YouTuber Alex Wassabi in a bout he lost by split decision.

He made his professional boxing debut against Alex Wassabi, earning his first boxing victory with a TKO in the third round. 

He also lost an exhibition fight with Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr, who at this point seems to be intent on taking down the whole of YouTube! Despite this loss, Deji was pleased enough with his performance against the boxing legend, claiming "I gave Floyd a black eye" on Twitter. 

In his next match, Deji won by unanimous decision by going 4 rounds against Swarmz.

What Next for YouTuber Boxing?

Our list features some of the most notable YouTubers in boxing, but that list could be much, much bigger. With more YouTubers, celebrities and influencers getting involved all the time, the world of YouTuber boxing looks set to only get bigger.

Despite its detractors, it's obvious that YouTuber boxing is here to stay and we can expect to see many more social media stars enter the ring in future. 

Some show a decent amount of skill, and victories for the likes of Jake Paul - who is successfully crossing over into professional boxing - have given the sport a sense of legitimacy. 

Whether it's for personal gain, or as a creative opportunity to raise money for charity, it's undeniable that the phenomenon has had an impact on the popularity of the sport, especially amongst a younger audience. 

The fact that serious boxers and martial artists, such as legends Floyd Mayweather Jr and Anderson Silva, have been willing to step into the ring with these guys, certainly shows that it's an opportunity to make money, at the very least! 

The PPV figures speak for themselves, legitimate boxing promoters all want a piece of the pie and sports broadcasters such as DAZN regularly broadcast their events.

With YouTubers having already fought against professional boxers and MMA fighters including the likes of Nate Diaz and Tommy Fury, we wouldn’t be surprised to see the likes of Conor McGregor and Andrew Tate involved in more influencer crossover boxing matches sometime in the future.
