YouTubers and TikTok stars will take to the ring to face off tonight, but don't expect it to be a complete bloodbath given the limited ruleset.

Unlike Logan Paul's exhibition bout with Floyd Mayweather, fights will have a winner after going the distance, but it will be missing some key components.

Only two of the fighters on the card have competed at any level of boxing; AnEsonGib fought twice in the amateurs before losing his pro debut to Jake Paul, who has also beaten Deji Olatunji who competes on Saturday for the first time since that bout.

And AnEsonGib's fight with TikTok star Tayler Holder won't be counting towards his professional record due to the 'exhibition' rules of the fight.

It is expected that due to some particular mismatches, there will be stoppages at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, but there will be a number of safety precautions being taken.

Here's what you need to know about the rules…


Fights will take place over five rounds.

Each round will be just two minutes long due to a ruling from the Florida Athletic Commission, much to the dismay of former professional AnEsonGib, who knows the difference between twos and threes after his three bouts.

It is expected that breaks between rounds could be as long as one minute, but that has yet to be confirmed.

Fighters will be forced to wear 16oz gloves, despite protests from fighters on both the YouTube and TikTok side of the divide.

The Florida State Athletic Commission would have allowed them to wear gloves as light as 12 or 14 oz, had they agreed to wear headgear like the original YouTuber boxing bouts like KSI v Joe Weller or KSI v Logan Paul.

This has been another point of contention for fans on all sides, but the fighters opted for the aesthetically less jarring decision to go without headgear.


There will be a decision made by judges after each fight, but we are unsure if that means a team of three judges, or if the referee will make the decision.

Florida guidelines appear to indicate that there will be a panel of three judges, although Social Gloves have not made this information public yet.


There will be knockouts and knockdowns scored in this event, with the stoppage at the discretion of the referee and the corners of each fighter.

However, one rule which will anger fans is the controversial decision around cuts.

Should a fighter receive a cut, the bout will be immediately stopped and the cut fighter will be ruled as having lost by TKO.


AnEsonGib on Tayler Holder: "He isn't going to be used to what I'm throwing at him, those 16oz gloves will feel like 10 to him, and I believe I will stop him, he isn't used to this!

"He's had no fights, from what I know, and even if he has I've been there before on the big stage three times, I fought twice before I faced Jake Paul, so I'm the most experienced one!

"I've got a different hunger for this fight, I'm coming off the loss, I've put the work in, many of these other YouTubers don't that, they've said they're doing it for money."
