    When is YouTube vs TikTok boxing? Date, UK start time, fight card and live stream

    Influencer boxing isn't going anywhere soon, as the 'Social Gloves: Battle of the Platforms' event rolls into Miami's Hard Rock Stadium this weekend.

    Top YouTube and TikTok stars will go head-to-head in amateur bouts with hundreds of millions of followers between the 16 fighters on the card.

    In the main event, former NCAA basketball standout Austin McBroom, whose channel 'The Ace Family' on YouTube has over 19million subscribers, will face Tik Tok star Bryce Hall, who has 20million followers on his platform.

    The event, which is not endorsed by either platform, will also see the boxing returns of former Jake Paul opponents Deji Olatunji and AnEsonGib (Ali Al-Fakkri) against Vinnie Hacker and Tayler Holder respectively.

    The show will also see musical performances from Grammy winner DJ Khaled as well as top rap acts Migos, Lil Baby and Trippie Redd, similar to Jake Paul's fight with Ben Askren.

    Here is everything you need to know about the event – and how to watch it…

    When is YouTube vs TikTok boxing?

    The event takes place on Saturday, June 12 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.

    The undercard will kick-off at 6pm local time, with the main card taking place at 7pm and the main event expected around 10pm.

    Due to the shortness of the bouts, five rounds of two minutes, expect this card to be a little bit shorter than your standard boxing card.

    What time will it start in the UK?

    The event will kick off at midnight on Saturday night in the UK.

    The first of three British fighters; Faze Jarvis, will fight in the second fight of the night, so expect his ring walk around 12.30am on Sunday morning/Saturday night.

    Then in the fourth bout of the night, Deji competes against Vinnie Hacker. It's hard to estimate ring walk times due to the musical acts, but we'd imagine he will fight between 1.30am and 2am.

    AnEsonGib vs Tayler Holder is the co-main event of the evening, and will begin after the Deji bout.

    The main event ring walk is expected around 3am British time.

    How to watch via live stream

    The event will be broadcast on LiveXLive, a concert streaming platform which is taking it's first foray into the world of boxing pay-per-view.

    Fans can purchase the pay-per-view for £35 by visiting the official website.

    Every PPV order comes with an exclusive NFT (Non-fungible token), which is a piece of digital artwork to commemorate the event.

    Quotes corner

    Austin McBroom: "My trainer wants me to take it kind of slow, be relaxed in the first round, it won't go past the second round, he thinks it'll end in the second.

    "I've been training hard for this, I've got a lot to prove not only to myself but to my family and my fans, and I don't think he's taking it that seriously.

    "You can't play boxing, you can get very seriously hurt, so he better be taking this seriously."

    Bryce Hall: "He wanted this fight, I don't need this fight, he begged for me and I said no seven times.

    "I don't think this guy has ever been in a real fight, I can't wait to slap this guy, I'm going to put him to sleep."
