Boxing event organizer Social Gloves has responded to allegations from Josh Richards, Vinnie Hacker, and Fouseytube who have claimed that everyone who took part in the "YouTubers Vs TikTokers" event has not yet been paid.

The YouTubers vs TikTokers event, also called the Battle of the Platforms, was organized by Social Gloves and featured a variety of YouTubers boxing Tiktokers with a total of five rounds each. The event was hosted at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, FL, and began at 8 p.m. EST.

The headlining fight was between the ACE Family's Austin McBroom and TikTok's Bryce Hall, with the latter losing by knockout in the third round. The event has since announced a part two.

Josh Richards claims no one was paid

On Thursday evening, Vinnie Hacker, along with Josh Richards, claimed on an episode of the BFFS podcast that those who partook in the Battle of The Platforms event have not been paid.

Dave Portnoy, who co-hosts the show with Josh, asked him if the fights didn't get paid. Josh said:

"Nope. Fighters didn't get paid, artists didn't get paid, no one got paid I'm pretty sure. From what I know, all the reports have said no."

Josh Richards continued by saying he was sure Social Gloves had gone out of business.

"I am 95% sure that they have filed for bankruptcy like two days ago. This stuff isn't supposed to be public at all but it is now."
