YouTube star Austin McBroom put on quite a show Saturday night in Florida when he knocked the crap out of TikTok star Bryce Hall in an electrifying boxing match. McBroom and Hall headlined the “Battle of the Platforms” fights, promoted by LiveXLive and Social Gloves, that went down at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, FL.
McBroom was a man on a mission from the moment he entered the arena, as he was led to the ring by rapper Lil Baby while columns of pyrotechnic flames shot in the air.
Austin McBroom dominated the fight against Bryce Hall, and after drawing blood on the TikTok star with a haymaker, the fight was ruled a TKO and stopped in the 3rd round. Those in attendance went absolutely crazy after McBroom was awarded the W, but none more than his wife, Catherine McBroom, who was ringside supporting her husband and keeping a close watch on the action.
Before the bout, Austin McBroom was seen leaning over the ring and giving his wife a kiss as she wished him good luck … and clearly it worked.
Although there was plenty of good-natured trash talk between Austin McBroom and Bryce Hall leading up to their big fight, the two were class acts and showed each other nothing but respect after the bout. In perhaps the ultimate gesture of sportsmanship – for a digital influencer – Hall has already taken to social media to congratulate his opponent on a hard-fought battle.
“great fight @austinmcbroom you impressed many along with myself with your skill set! im going back to my youtube / tiktok shit and im looking forward to takin a few shots with you tonight,” Bryce captioned a photo of the two taken shortly after the fight was stopped.
