Austin McBroom challenged Bryce Hall to a fight

The drama between Austin and Bryce dates back to late 2020 when Austin repeatedly challenged Bryce to a fight.

He actually initially asked Jake Paul to fight, but he declined. So, he decided to ask Bryce whilst he was at it.

At the time, Bryce also declined the deal. But, in February 2021, he told paparazzi that he would fight if he got a $7.5million payout and a $1.5 million knockout bonus.

So, Austin offered him a counter deal.

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.

Bryce accepts Austin’s fight offer

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.

So, do they actually have beef?

Austin McBroom was challenging Bryce Hall to a fight for months, but they don’t actually have any beef.

They’ve never had any public feuds or disagreements. In fact, they probably didn’t actually know each other very well until the fight offer.

However, since the YouTube vs TikTok event was announced, they have trash-talked each other a number of times, and they even got into a scuffle at a recent press conference.
