YouTuber Austin McBroom has said he’ll be back in the boxing game “real soon” with a big announcement coming up, and added that he would “most definitely” fight Jake Paul if they crossed paths.

2021 has been a big year for influencer boxing, with more fans than ever invested in seeing creators like the Paul brothers step into the ring and try their hand at the sport.

June’s ‘Battle of the Platforms’ event turned out to be surprisingly popular, and in the headline fight between the ACE Family’s Austin McBroom and TikToker Bryce Hall, it was ultimately McBroom that ended up taking the win.

The end of the event was shrouded in controversy when he and event organizer Social Gloves were sued after several fighters revealed that hadn’t been paid, but it looks like that isn’t stopping Austin from stepping into the ring once again.

It’s not yet clear what Austin is planning to announce in the coming weeks, but people are already wondering who the YouTuber could be fighting.
