The future of YouTube boxing is yet again uncertain. On Friday, August 5th, 2022, the #DramaAlert news team learned that YouTuber Alex Wassabi has suffered an injury ahead of his bout with YouTuber KSI. Many fans now fear that such an injury may result in the Misfits Boxing event being canceled — though such cancelation seems unlikely.

Early Friday evening, rumors of Wassabi’s injury began to spread behind closed doors, with many influencers possibly taking to social media to speak on the situation. First, boxing fans saw a tweet from Jake Paul. This was quickly followed up by a KSI tweet. Both of these tweets alerted fans that something may be going on behind the scenes.
