Bryce posts screenshots of a text conversation on Twitter
On March 10th, Bryce posted screenshots of a text conversation he’d had with Austin on Twitter.
In the texts, Austin challenged Bryce to a fight again, and Bryce tweeted: “All this because I won’t accept his little fight and now he’s crying because he can’t pay his cleaning lady.”
Austin responded to the screenshots by writing: “But you keep running…you’re all Twitter fingers, you wanna fight randoms out in public but too scared to fight me for millions.”
“You know my terms… this isn’t 2016 anymore bud, I’m not fighting for the same amount as you,” Bryce said, referring to his $7.5million pay out and a $1.5 million knockout bonus offer.
“Perfect!!! I’ll take less and give you an extra million dollars if you win…fair enough lil boy???” Austin replied. This content could not be loaded
Days after he posted the screenshots, Bryce uploaded a photo of a fight offer contract to Instagram.
On the paper, it said “McBroom (Opponent)” and a $5 million figure.
Bryce captioned the photo: “Now we’re talking… @austinmcbroom you FINALLY got my attention.”
He then posted an Instagram Story of himself in the gym with the caption “first day of training”, confirming that he had accepted Austin’s $5 million offer.
Then, on March 18th, Austin posted the first official YouTube vs TikTok boxing poster.
Austin McBroom and Bryce Hall appear to be following in the footsteps of the Paul brothers as they look set to fight each other in a boxing match. The YouTuber and TikTok star have finally decided to put on their boxing gloves after going back and forth at each other on several occasions.
According to recent reports, Austin McBroom and Bryce Hall were scheduled to headline the YouTubers vs TikTokers card on June 12. The two were recently involved in a brawl at the Fred Segal store in West Hollywood while they were promoting their upcoming fight.
McBroom believes he’ll have the upper hand in this weekend’s brawl
Hall and McBroom have been publicly feuding for months, with Hall posting a text message conversation between the pair in March and the pair getting into a scuffle at the May press conference.
“Him and I definitely dont like each other,” McBroom told Insider. “We have real beef, I wouldnt say I hate him but just dont like him. Hes young and immature and Im going to teach him a lesson.”
According to McBroom, he originally had three potential targets on his list: Logan Paul, Jake Paul, and then Bryce Hall. With Logan fighting Mayweather last weekend and Jake going a “different direction,” this left Hall who he described as “young and immature.”
For the past three months, McBroom says that hes been training every day with regularly running, preparing at the gym, and cryotherapy. Hes taken this opportunity to try and transition his content out of the family-friendly vlogs that have allowed him and his wife Catherine Paiz to become successful influencers who in 2019 purchased a $10 million Los Angeles home.
“My brand is a lot different than all these other guys,” McBroom said. “Im able to step outside my brand a little bit with this event and let people know I have to do things a little differently in order for this to happen.”
Though family vlogging and lip-synching might be two different forms of content, both McBroom and Hall are linked in their affinity for being tied up in internet drama.
Having a feud or a beef helps build the excitement for the match and McBroom believes it is crucial for fan engagement.
“Fans want to see beef, whether its real or fake, it doesnt matter,” McBroom said. “We cant just go up there and say we are best friends, I dont think anybody would be interested in that. There definitely has to be some animosity.”
