1. Ryan Johnston (YouTube) vs. Cale Saurage (TikTok)
The event started off really strong as Cale Saurage and Ryan Johntson engaged in a back and forth war. They exchanged blows all fight, but Saurage was the better fighter at the beginning of the fight. He won the first two rounds but gassed out after that.

2. Landon McBroom (YT) vs. Ben Azelart (TT)

3. Faze Jarvis (YT) vs. Michael Le (TT)

5. Deji (YT) vs. Vinnie Hacker (TT)
One of the strongest fighters on the card, Deji lost to Jake Paul in his first boxing fight. However, the British YouTuber started this fight well after he won the first round of the fight.
