The next YouTuber boxing event is coming live from Dubai with Social Knockout, which will see Adam Saleh face off against Waleed Sharks. Here’s what you need to know.

For a few years now, YouTubers have been using boxing as a way for them to easily settle drama between one another.

Over time, the YouTuber boxing game has grown bigger and bigger, first with KSI and Logan Paul having a professional fight, and then with the Paul brothers stepping out from fighting other creators and taking on actual athletes and fighters.

These fights have mainly taken place in the UK and United States, but now, Social Knockout is hosting the first MENA region event, live from the Coca-Cola Arena in Dubai.

Thankfully, if you want to watch the action, you don’t have to stay up all night waiting. The fights get underway on July 30 at 4 pm BST/ 11 am EST, and 8 am PST.
