Behind ‘iDubbbz vs Dr. Mike’ Boxing Fight for ‘Creator Clash’
The most anticipated fight — iDubbbz vs Dr. Mike — in the main event of a YouTube boxing tournament is around the corner, and YouTube star iDubbbz is all set to to the ring against Dr. Mike Varshavski.
The internet personality, who boasts over 7.5 million subscribers on the video streaming platform, will make his boxing debut against his opponent Dr. Mike, who similarly has a huge following of around 9 million.
What's more? The YouTube boxing event will also see some of the leading influencers in the content creator space, including Farley (Epic Meal Time), who will face EgoRaptor in the co-feature bout.
But more importantly, none of the fighters or the social media stars, so to say, on the boxing card will be paid for taking part in their fights.
Instead, the YouTube boxing tournament is organized in such a way that all financial proceeds would be donated to the American Heart Association and other charities which are set to be announced.

iDubbbz's debut YouTube boxing appearance against fellow star Dr. Mike will take place on Saturday, May 14, in Tampa, Florida.
The social media star had been trying to set up a clash with fellow content creator Ricegum since 2018 but has now opted to create the charity tournament to show his love for the sport.
"I'm here to announce something that is going to excite and titillate you for the past however many months I've been trying to get this [Ricegum] to box," he said in his recent YouTube video.

He added, "I need to find someone who is cooperative, not an idiot, and can fight. That's basically all I'm looking for," while revealing he found his opponent.
He then shared that he approached the likes of Jeff Wittek and Taylor Holder. But those creators had their situations to say no to him.
Later, he found Dr. Mike, whom iDubbbz described as smart, more talented at boxing, and the most charitable person.
An official venue, however, is yet to be confirmed. But the announcement about that must be on its way, too.
