Two YouTube stars will fight one another in a boxing ring. Austin McBroom and AnEsonGib are ready to entertain the masses while settling some internet beef. The bout takes place on September 10 inside Banc of California Stadium.
McBroom is a former college basketball player who went undrafted in the 2016 NBA Draft. McBroom owns Social Gloves, a global platform that streams events combining boxing and entertainment. In 2021, McBroom fought Bryce Hall and knocked him out.
Talking to TMZ, McBroom believes this fight against AnEsonGib won’t last three rounds.
AnEsonGib started his YouTube channel in 2012, providing content for FIFA. He started boxing in amateur bouts in 2018. In his first pro fight, AnEsonGib lost to Jake Paul in 2020 via TKO.
In 2021, AnEsonGib competed on the undercard of McBroom’s YouTubers vs. TikTokers boxing event against Taylor Holder. Declared a majority draw, the result was deemed controversial. AnEsonGib stated he was “robbed.” The fight was later overturned, with AnEsonGib getting the unanimous decision win.
“I’m going to shower Austin in suffering,” AnEsonGib told TMZ. “He’s going to be in pain from the moment the bell rings because he’s never faced an opponent like me.”

This is a grudge match following the controversy surrounding AnEsonGib’s last fight on a Social Gloves card. The two have done a great job promoting the bout online. Can that result in an entertaining fight?
This fight will not be a Fight of the Year contender. It can still be a strategic bout that may entertain the fans tuning in to watch these two go after it.

AnEsonGib’s boxing experience is something that can give him a true edge. The 26-year-old has competed in three exhibition bouts and one legitimate one against Jake Paul. He beat Max Nugent via KO and Jay Swingler via decision. While he would get knocked out by Paul, AnEsonGib acted accomplished on his YouTube page. Why? Because he has the experience under his belt.
The amount of time he has spent in the ring, especially after beating Tayler Holder, is valuable. Only facing Bryce Hall, McBroom’s lack of experience may be his downfall. His win over Hall via a right hook, however, is a good sign that he can end a fight whenever he wants.
Something to consider is AnEsonGib’s health. He had to back out of the fight before after doctors wouldn’t allow him to compete. If McBroom is motivated enough after he had to reschedule the whole card, and AnEsonGib is not 100%, it could be an easy fight night for McBroom.
Don’t blink, as there will be some quick action in this one. The Social Gloves leader may end up leaving the ring with a win.
Austin McBroom vs. AnEsonGib will take place on Sept. 10. The main card will begin at 11 p.m. ET | 4 a.m. BST | 1 p.m. AEST. McBroom and AnEsonGib should make their way to the ring around 1 a.m. ET | 6 a.m. BST | 3 p.m. AEST, depending on how long the undercard fights last.
