TikTok star Bryce Hall has called out famous influencer boxers Deji, KSI and Austin McBroom for a fight, conceding that if his opponents were too afraid to fight bare knuckle then he would be willing to fight with gloves. Hall has previously fought Austin McBroom in the ring, a bout which he ended up losing, though he has carved out a unique niche for himself in the influencer-fighter scene thanks to his interest in bare knuckle fighting. This is not the first, and certainly will not be the last time Hall calls out McBroom or Deji. The popular TikToker has had numerous very public feuds with the two figures in the past.
Previously claiming that Deji doesn’t scare him and he is open to fighting him any time, Hall is supremely confident of beating Deji not only bare knuckle but also with gloves. Hall hasn’t fought an influencer since 2021, when he lost to McBroom. This hasn’t stopped him from persistently calling out influencers though, as he mentioned Joe Weller in the past. His confidence is well founded, having just won against veteran Gee Perez in a bare knuckle fight on Friday.
Post his win over Perez, Hall said, “Honestly, KSI, Deji, Austin McBroom. Any of those pussies can get it. They won't do bare knuckle, but if you want some pillows on your hands I’m down.”
Calling influencer boxers cowards, Hall further stated, “I think a lot of these influencers that dedicate their entire life and career path to it, good luck with it. But I’m just doing this for fun, and I’m probably gonna pass all of them anyway. They would never do [Bare Knuckle], they don’t have balls. I’ll fight them with the pillows on their hands.”
Hall wants to put McBroom loss behind after beating Perez at BKFC 48
Bryce Hall is coming off the most important victory in his fight career, forcing opponent Gee Perez to throw in the towel during their bout at BKFC 48 in New Mexico. The TikTok star managed to fill out the Tingley Coliseum with fans as he redeemed himself after a brutal loss to Austin McBroom in 2021.
The loss to McBroom, his only public fight before Friday, had left a bad taste in Hall’s mouth. He has never quite been able to move on and people haven’t quite let him forget it either. The brutal fight went viral because of the beating Hall took and how bloodied his face became.
Speaking about the event, Hall said, “hopped in there with two months, not even a legitimate two months of serious training. Ref was clearly on Austin McBroom’s side. If you just rewatch the fight you can see all the bulls–t. If you genuinely put all your hatred for me aside, and you just watch that fight, you can see all the bulls–t that was going on in that fight.”
He added, “Taking the L on the chin as a 21-year-old, with millions of people watching, was a massive learning experience for me. I just took the loss, there wasn’t really much I could say. I just cannot wait until everyone can shut up after Aug. 11. I am a completely different fighter. I generate so much power, nobody understands.”
