Main Event: Gib knocks out McBroom in brutal finish
The Main Event for Social Gloves: No More Talk features two YouTube megastars. Austin McBroom of The Ace Family facing off against multi-million subscriber AnEsonGib.
Gib came to the arena with one goal in mind: to knock off the head of Social Gloves Austin McBroom. And with more experience and a better record, the odds were seemingly in his favor.
But McBroom was focused on his future in boxing beyond Gib. Whether an advantage or a detriment, McBroom continued to claim that beating Gib would be his golden ticket to securing a match with massively successful influencer boxer KSI.
McBroom started the bout looking far more relaxed than Gib, and an early round knockdown by McBroom did little to bolster the confidence of his opponent. Even after landing a couple of shots of his own, Gib still bounced around the ring on high alert.
Round two saw several bullet-like punches from both McBroom and Gib, but Austin won the round with a few big shots delivered to Gib’s face.
McBroom may have been too relaxed going into round three as Gib found several holes in his defense. Landing blow after blow to the jaw of McBroom, the Ace Family Man was knocked to the mat twice by Gib before he was saved by the bell.
Round four saw a similar story with McBroom falling to the mat within seconds. The official warned McBroom that if he didn’t start protecting himself, the fight would be over. A second knockdown would come moments later, with a final warning for McBroom.
And as anyone could have predicted at this point in the match, a massive blow to the face of McBroom would send him to the mat for the final time. This time, he wouldn’t bounce back up as he had before. Gib came, saw, and accomplished his goal of knocking off the head of Social Gloves.
Cory Wharton vs Chase DeMoore recap
A match made for television, two reality TV stars stepped into the ring to finally settle their beef. They had to be separated multiple times during press conferences and even attempted to throw hands a few days early during a weigh-in on September 8.
Physically, DeMoore outmatched his opponents by considerable margins. Height, reach, weight, and age all leaned in favor of Chase. But DeMoore fought harder to keep his mouthpiece in place than he did to take down Wharton. His left hand was completely out of commission while it held his mouthguard in place.
Despite his stature, Wharton’s speed and tenacity were on display during the matchup. Landing several blows that staggered his towering opponent, but failed to capitalize on that moment in the first two rounds. In fact, both fighters took a break in the middle of the second round to taunt each other.
The next two rounds would consist of some fairly unprofessional fighting with the officiator at one point in time informing Wharton that his maneuvers “weren’t boxing”.
The fifth and final round would begin with a flurry of punches from both fighters with none of them actually connecting. The gassed fighters would slow to a crawl, with both fighters checking the big screen several times to see how much time remained.
The exhibition ended without a score, but the commentators agreed that if the bout was scored, Wharton would have run away with the victory. However, it might have been easier to judge their taunting abilities rather than their combat skills.
Adam Selah vs Landon McBroom recap
Austin McBroom’s younger brother Landon and his opponent Adam Saleh put it all on the line to compete for the title of ICB International Middleweight Champion. But the fight was for more than just a belt – it was a battle between the East Coast and the West.
Scheduled for four rounds, viewers expected to see a better show of boxing than the fight prior. But the matchup leaned in Saleh’s favor as he brings a lot more experience to the ring.
The first three rounds of the match came and went without any considerable punches being landed. Despite the lack of action, McBroom controlled the pace of the fight with his presence. Yet, heading into round four, Saleh turned it on and pressured his opponent.
Both fighters exploded at the start of the final round. Respect for one another’s abilities was abandoned as McBroom and Saleh took chances throwing risky punches. Despite two right hooks from McBroom late in the fourth round, the judges scored the match a unanimous draw.
Le’Veon Bell vs Adrian Peterson recap
Making the transition from NFL runningbacks to professional boxers has proved a challenge for Bell and Peterson, and the ruthless competitors are taking their intense desire to win from a 300-foot-long field to an 18-square-foot ring.
The 200+ pound heavyweight fighters used their reach to their advantage early on respecting the power behind each other’s potential blows. Both fighters stayed busy during the first two rounds, they had a difficult time getting in range and finding the confidence to take meaningful shots.
As Bell and Peterson grew more comfortable with each passing round, their footwork and movement started to shine through. But they were running out of time to earn the points they so desperately needed.
After patiently chipping away at Adrian Peterson’s armor, Le’Veon Bell started the fifth found hot by unloading a massive right hook. Peterson saw stars looking straight to the sky before falling backward onto the mat.
Nick ‘Swaggy P’ Young vs Minikon
Swaggy P was set to take on rapper Blueface, but 48 hours before the event, Minikon stepped in as the rapper’s replacement. Even though he was only given two days’ notice, Minikon claimed that was all the time he needed to prepare to beat Swaggy P.
Both fighters came out of the gate swinging showing a level of aggression the two previous fights lacked. And early into round two, Nick Young would throw a series of punches that would knock the mouthguard out of Minikon’s mouth. But it wouldn’t take long for Minikon to throw a brutal punch of his own.
In round three, the official would call the match after Nick Young fell to the mat and rolled out of the ring. He claimed that Minikon threw a headbutt, but the replay makes the hit look like a rake from Minikon’s forearm.
It’s hard to say what would have happened had the fight gone on longer, but the commentators believed that Minikon could have secured a KO against Young.
