On May 14, 18 creators gathered together for an influencer boxing event unlike anything we’d ever seen. Orchestrated by iDubbbz, ‘Creator Clash’ took a slew of unconventional influencers and pitted them against each other in the ring for a night full of laughter, punches, and high-stakes combat — all for a good cause.
- Doctor Mike takes home Creator Clash main card fight against iDubbbz
- Yodeling Haley and JustaMinx made history with first women’s influencer boxing event
- 10,000-person arena event sold out in Tampa, Florida
While Creator Clash boasted a massive fight card, audiences were most excited for the main event of the evening — OG YouTuber ‘iDubbbz’ vs certified health professional and entertainer ‘Doctor Mike.’
The cruiserweight bout saw iDubbbz land numerous, impressive body blows on his opponent and slide through punches with slippery evasiveness, but Doctor Mike hit his fellow YouTuber with more than a few powerful headshots with careful precision.
Despite going up against an opponent with more boxing experience, iDubbbz displayed inspiring tenacity and was unwavering against Doctor Mike. The two fiercely exchanged blows in the later rounds before exhaustion and bloody noses took hold.
Doctor Mike ultimately won the bout by unanimous decision from the judges after fighting the full five rounds.

Creator Clash: As it happened
Matt Watson vs Dad
Humanoid robot ‘Dad’ took the win in round one by TKO after hitting Matt Watson with a few punches to the head, kicking off Creator Clash with a huge bang.
Ryan Magee vs Alex Ernst
These two influencers truly went the distance. Both fighters refused to back down, each landing an impressive amount of body blows and head shots. Despite great effort from both parties, Ernst emerged the victor by unanimous decision from the judges.
Both YouTubers hugged it out, showing impressive sportsmanship after their fierce flurry of fisticuffs.
Internet Comment Etiquette vs DJ Welch
Creator Clash’s first heavyweight bout saw DJ Welch face off against Internet Comment Etiquette. Welch’s previous experience in combat sports certainly showed, as the Animators vs Gamers creator took the victory by TKO in the second round.
Of course, a little mortal combat wasn’t going to drive a rift between these two influencers, who hugged it out and promised to meet each other in the ring again someday.
I Did a Thing vs TheOdd1sOut
In another short bout, Australian YouTuber I Did a Thing secured the win early on in the fight, taking the victory over birthday boy TheOdd1sOut by TKO in the first round – even giving the ref a bit of the evil eye when stoppage didn’t come as early as he thought it should.
Yodeling Haley vs JustaMinx
The first-ever women’s influencer boxing match was a nail-biter all the way through. Both fighters held their ground and boxed like champions.
After four rounds of fierce punches, JustaMinx secured the win by TKO, securing her name in influencer boxing history.
Hundar vs AB
These influencers went the distance, taking the fight for nearly the full five rounds before referee stoppage crowned Hundar the winner by TKO.
This fight was certainly a nail-biter, with Hundar starting out as the underdog as AB appeared to dominate with good footwork and solid punches that knocked Hundar down early in the bout.
Graham Stephen vs Michael Reeves
In one of the most highly-anticipated bouts of the evening, financial and real estate guru Graham Stephen faced off against robotics YouTuber and OfflineTV member Michael Reeves.
Reeves displayed impressive technical skill in comparison to his opponent and landed several clean head shots on Stephen, earning him the victory by TKO in Round 2.
While Reeves says he won’t box again, his performance certainly stole the show ahead of the co-main and main events.
Epic Meal Time’s Harley vs Game Grumps’ Arin Hanson
The second heavyweight bout of the night saw OG YouTuber Harley ‘The Sauce Boss’ face off against the Game Grumps’ Arin Hanson. Harley’s massive size difference certainly came as an advantage for the Epic Meal Time YouTuber, who scored the victory over The Video Game boy in the second round by TKO.
This is far from Harley’s last bout… The 6’5 fighter called out none other than Dr Disrespect for his next fight. Only time will tell if the Two-Time Blockbuster Video Games Champ responds.
Thus ends one of the biggest influencer boxing events in history. These bouts were fought with a ton of heart, all in the name of charity.
With plenty of the participating influencers itching for another fight, it looks like a second Creator Clash is highly requested… and iDubbbz himself said “the sky is the limit” in regards to future events.
