MMA fighter Keith Lee challenges MrBeast to a boxing match amidst influencer-boxing craze


The world of influencer boxing continues to capture attention, and now, MMA fighter and TikTok sensation Keith Lee has thrown his hat into the ring. Following a candid training snapshot of YouTuber MrBeast alongside Logan Paul, excitement grew about the potential for MrBeast’s foray into the influencer-boxing phenomenon. The anticipation escalated further when Keith Lee extended a compelling challenge to the YouTube mogul.

With the social media space buzzing over names like Logan Paul and KSI gearing up for an October 14 showdown. The intrigue deepened when MrBeast shared a photo of himself training with Paul.

Keith Lee’s Bold Challenge

On August 22, just a day after the training snapshot emerged, Keith Lee presented MrBeast with an open challenge. Lee, despite a year away from fighting, expressed readiness to face off with MrBeast. He stated,

“I used to fight at 135 lbs. But right now, I’m about 185 lbs. I’m solid, though. I think MrBeast is about 190 – 200 lbs, so the size discrepancy shouldn’t be that big. If anything, I can bulk up.”

Lee substantiated his challenge with glimpses of his training regimen, showcasing his preparation for a potential bout.
