This past weekend the SSE Arena, Wembley, housed the biggest Influencer Boxing event of 2022 presented by Showstar Boxing. The UK vs. USA event took place on March 5th and was streamed globally to fans all over the world. Fil-am Creator and Actor Alex Wassabi took the ring alongside fellow creator Deji in the main event and came out on top as the winner. Check out Alex's vlog below that takes you behind the scenes of that night.
The last two rounds are where the action really took place with Alex and Deji, both landing hits that played critical roles in the final judges' decision. Alex's training and stamina really pulled through as he capitalized on an exhausted Deji in those final rounds. As the fight came to a close, Alex was announced the winner by split decision.
You can catch Alex later this year in a new episode of our MYX Original Series, Making it in America.
