The undercard of the main fight is providing its own set of storylines, with ComedyShortsGamer and Jake Paul duking it as the main co-event of the evening.

Popular personality Joe Weller was convincingly beaten by KSI in February, but he wants back in the ring for the fight on Saturday August 25th, and fellow YouTuber Syndicate wanted the challenge.

Following Joe’s offer to fight anyone at the event, Syndicate Tweeted out that he wanted to make it happen, and set about looking for a suitable bootcamp to train.

With only a month and a half before it’s all set to take place, Syndicate confirmed on July 4th that he hasn’t been able to sort out a deal to fight Joe.

Syndicate explained that he had attempted to acquire the services of the trainers at Ricky Hatton’s gym, a former boxing champion, but they had turned him down.

“It won’t be going ahead and it does really suck. I’ve had everyone scrambling around to try and make this happen as fast as possible. We truly did try and jump on this opportunity. We had a month and like 25 days to do this, I said from day one that if I’m going to do this I want to work with the Hatton team because they’re literally around the corner for me.

Sadly the team and everyone reached out to say “yo, this is the opportunity, if Tom’s got like a month and a half to get fit, he’s willing to give his all, he’ll be there every day”. They said they loved the opportunity but the simple fact is that they are full in-house.

Unfortunately, they are completely filled with the fights with the pros with the trainers they’ve got at the moment, that they can’t actually give me that time to focus on this fight. If they managed to turn me around from this fitness level to a capable of standard of fighting and then win the fight, it would have been absolutely incredible.”

Syndicate goes on to explain that he will be fighting on the undercard of the next fight, but he’s unsure currently about who he’ll be going up against as it’s all up in the air.

You can view the segment about the boxing in his Vlog from July 4th at the 8-minute mark.

After months of previous attempts – some that ended in disaster – the stars finally aligned for Lengyel on October 13 when he managed to complete the title incredibly fast.

Using the Nether bed trick to slay the Ender Dragon quickly, the former Overwatch pro was able to take down the final boss and achieve a speedrun record of just 33 minutes. “Holy s**t!” he screamed as beast died.

Elated, the star exploded in celebration over his new time. “33! Beat that s**t!” He then hilariously called out Forsen who has also been speedrunning Minecraft. “Beat it, Forsen! Beat it! 33:49! Nearly sub-30!” he said, slamming his fists on the desk.

xQc challenged the fellow Twitch personality to attempt to beat his record. “Beat that, baby! Forget it. Forget variety, Forsen. It will take months to beat that s**t!  Forget the variety streams, dude.”

According to Lengyel, everything seemed to just click and fall into place during his latest Minecraft run. He was even able to achieve a “perfect” kill of the Ender Dragon using his strategy, which he had been practicing in the past month.

On October 14, Forsen responded to the challenge simply stating, “Alright. Alright. Let’s do it!” Only time will tell if the Swede will be able to match or beat xQc’s incredible 33-minute time, but the rivalry has been entertaining to say the least.
