With the head guards whipped off, it isn’t just the YouTube pair that are weighing in with their opinions. As more attention is drawn to the professional bout, the sport’s biggest names are stepping forward into the spotlight — including former unified champion of the world, Anthony Joshua.

Regardless of the controversy surrounding the lack of YouTubers on the undercard of the rematch, the event is set to surpass previous pay-per-view records, as Eddie Hearn and co. have landed an exclusive multi-million dollar broadcasting deal with global sports streaming service, DAZN.

In light of this, Joshua (who is promoted by Hearn’s brand, Matchroom Boxing) has come forward with a positive outlook, stating that he thinks the spectacle is “sick” for boxing.

“So KSI and Logan Paul have a bigger following than me and most of the heavyweights combined”, Joshua admitted. 

Joshua told The Independent: “People look at them as a joke now, and they doubt them, but if they take it seriously and they put on a good performance, people might scratch their head and say, ”Hang on a minute, this wasn’t such a bad idea.’”

As more big names from the sport share their thoughts on the event, and with high-profile professional boxers set to compete on the undercard, it’s quite plausible that the event will drum up interest from outside of the YouTube community. 

Given the increased interest and exposure, this could be the start of things to come, with the potential for more events of this nature to be on the cards moving forward.

Mr Beast destroys brother’s house with “elephant toothpaste” foam prank

Mr Beast took a playful science experiment with ‘elephant toothpaste’ and turned it into a monstrous explosion to destroy his brother’s house, with the help of foam master and fellow YouTuber, Mark Rober.

As someone who’s mangled his fair share of houses, Mr Beast is no stranger to the best ways of ruining multiple rooms at once. This time, he targeted his own brother CJ ‘MrBro’ Donaldson, who was in the middle of trashing another house belonging to someone in their crew.

The ‘prank-ception’ was primarily aimed at CJ, seeing as Mr Beast recruited Rober, who had just got done completing world record foam videos himself – which were about to be outdone by Beast’s twisted mind.

After successfully distracting the homeowner, Mr Beast filled CJ’s house with barrels containing a grand total of 500 gallons of Hydrogen peroxide, almost double of Rober’s world-record feat.

CJ wasn’t ready for his whole house to be rigged with foam by Mr Beast.

“Yeah, I think windows will get broken,” Rober said, as the entire crew prepared to let the ‘fuse’ rip from a safe distance.

The collective buried gallons of the chemicals throughout the house’s rooms including the living room, his bedroom and bathroom with enough material to really do some damage.

With CJ in tow, Mr Beast put in the call to let the chemical reaction go off, and the ensuing mayhem even surprised the people who formulated the prank.

In mere seconds, every inch of the booby-trapped structure was filled with green foam. Ovens, home decor, and beds all fell victim to the engulfing surge of foam that sprang to life once Rober got the signal.

One of the most enjoyable details of the prank was the steady stream of steam that instantly shot out from the chimney caused by the massive chain reaction of chaos inside.

Once everything settled, CJ and the crew could barely open any of the doors before they were met with a cloudy burst of green sludge that was still developing from inside.

Of course, Mr Beast pranks wouldn’t be complete if it wasn’t immediately followed up by an extravagant gift to make up for it, which came in the form of a new house to replace CJ’s ruined one.

Although, if anything is clear about Mr Beast and his antics, the YouTuber is probably already devising how to ruin his brother’s new house in a more destructive manner.
