Former FaZe Clan member Jarvis has confirmed his boxing return after being seen sparring with Floyd Mayweather after a nearly two-year hiatus from the ring.

While the 21-year-old has continued to be fairly active on YouTube with occasional boxing videos, it’s been almost two years since his last bout.

Also doubling as his debut fight, Jarvis made quick work of his opponent Michael Le with an early second-round knockout, and fans have been waiting for his return to influencer boxing ever since. Now finally, the Fortnite star is gearing up for a bout.

According to the announcement, Jarvis will return to boxing as one of the High Stakes Tournament fighters in Kingpyn’s first YouTube boxing tournament — which will showcase eight fighters across three events.

While fans are certainly hyped to see Jarvis make his return, some were left puzzled as to why the YouTuber didn’t sign with another promoter. “Should’ve signed with Misfits or happy punch honestly,” one wrote. “Would’ve gotten way more recognition,” another added.

It’s unclear who he’ll be stepping in the ring with just yet, with more announcements soon to come. However, fans have suggested many potential matchups for the ex-FaZe Clan member, posing that he steps in the ring with the likes of some big names such as Deji, Bryce Hall, or even Alex Wassabi.
