YouTubers Vitaly Zdorovetskiy and Bradley Martyn got into a heated exchange that saw punches thrown during a confrontation at the November 9’s KSI vs Logan Paul boxing match.

The action inside the STAPLES Centre came thick and fast, with Paul and JJ ‘KSI” Olatunji wailing on each other for six rounds, before the Brit was announced as the winner via split decision from the judges.

The action wasn’t just confined to the ring however, with Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem uploading footage to Twitter which shows YouTube prankster Vitaly and fitness guru Bradley Martyn trade blows in the crowd.

In the footage, which appears to be recorded on a cell phone, Vitaly and Martyn can be seen exchanging words, with the Russian stepping forward, getting into the American’s face, before shoving him with both hands around the fitness expert’s throat.

Martyn immediately responded, throwing a right hand of his own which forced Vitaly, who has over 10 million subscribers on YouTube, to cover up from an onslaught of punches.

The pair were eventually separated, with Vitaly appearing to immediately calm down after facing off with Martyn, with no more shots thrown by either man.

With KSI vs Logan Paul touted as the biggest event in YouTube history, it’s no surprise that a number of popular influencers and content creators were in attendance, with Bryan ‘RiceGum’ Le and Yousef ‘FaZe Apex’ Abdelfatta both standing in camera shot stunned by the events.

Even 24 hours later, FaZe Apex was still stunned by what happened, replying to an image showing his shock by saying he “couldn’t believe (his) eyes” when the pair started exchanging blows.

Isiah ‘FaZe Sensei’ Ocasio also weighed in on the scuffle, joking that the clip was where the phrase “knocking sense into someone” comes from.

What started this scuffle remains unknown, but it appears that there were words exchanged between the pair before the incident took place.

Neither man has officially commented on the fight, although both have been active on social media since, with Martyn simply tweeting out “Woah,” while Vitaly challenged KSI and Logan Paul to a boxing match with a picture of him standing inside a ring.

Whether the 27-year-old Russian will actually step inside the ring to compete remains to be seen, but with KSI seemingly uninterested in a rematch with Logan Paul, he could be tempted into a fight with the prankster.

Of course, his feud with Bradley Martyn may not be over either, and could become YouTube’s next major boxing rivalry.

Logan Paul reacts to Jake calling him a “fake fighter” before Floyd Mayweather bout

YouTube star Logan Paul is set to throw down with undefeated professional boxer Floyd Mayweather this February — but little brother Jake Paul isn’t a fan of their upcoming bout, even calling his sibling a “fake fighter.”

The Paul brothers have unexpectedly shifted from their careers as top-tier YouTubers into white-collar boxers. Ever since August 2018, the two have dedicated their time to training and scoring high-profile matches; and Logan may have taken the cream of the crop.

On December 6, 2020, it was announced that Logan would be fighting 50-0 pro boxer Floyd Mayweather in a “Super Exhibition” match in February 2021. This news seemed to overshadow Jake’s 2nd round KO over Nate Robinson a week prior, which may have influenced his thoughts on his older brother’s upcoming match.

“My brother is f**ked,” Jake taunted in an interview with TMZ. “It’s bad for the sport. I think it’s just for clout. You know, my brother’s a fake fighter. I’m the real fighter. He’s 0-1, I’m 3-0.”

A week later, Logan has finally responded to his little bro’s scathing words — and it’s safe to say that he’s a little confused as to where the venom is coming from, although he’s completely unfazed by the insults.

“I’m like, little brothers up to some s**t, like he wants to get some attention for a sec, go for it,” he said of the matter. “But I fully support Jake — whatever drama he wants to stir or create, it really doesn’t bother me. ‘You’re a fake boxer.’ Okay. Let’s box, because Jake is the kid that gets beat up by my sparring partners.”

“I’ve become like rubber sheet metal, dude,” he continued. “In this fight, everyone’s sayin’ a lot of things, and for good reason. I’m fighting Floyd f**king Mayweather! So I’ve literally become immune to every — I’ve heard it all.”

Jake isn’t the only one unsure of his brother’s chances; even Mike Tyson claimed that Floyd would “beat [Logan’s] f***kin’ ass” when it comes time for their match.

While the odds are certainly against Paul, there’s still a chance that he might surprise his critics and go the distance against his formidable opponent.
