Popular YouTuber Joe Weller may be gearing up to touch gloves with Jamaican soccer player Jeremy Lynch, as hinted at by a Tweet published by Lynch's freestyle soccer group ‘F2 Freestylers’ Twitter account.

F2 posted a possible poster for the bout on December 26, which featured Weller facing off with Lynch in what appears to be a mock boxing match.

While no concrete date has yet been set for the potential fight, the poster claims that the event is “coming soon,” leaving fans to speculate as to its outcome - and its inception.


Although no recorded beef has been noted between the YouTuber and soccer player, Weller posted a picture of himself and a masked individual in a gym on December 23, outfitted with boxing gloves and athletic gear. With the poster now published, fans can assume that Weller was teasing his upcoming fight with Lynch - which he has yet to publicly speak out on.

This wouldn’t be Weller’s first time in the boxing ring, though; the YouTuber faced off with social media star Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji in February of 2018, just ahead of KSI’s eventual bout against Logan Paul in August.

Weller’s match against Lynch could likely mark an upcoming video for F2’s YouTube channel, which features a slew of freestyle soccer tricks, pranks, and other such content. 

However, with the KSI vs Logan Paul rematch on the way, it could mark a timely prelude to the battle - although their fight has yet to see a solid date, either.
