Update 1:27 a.m. ET Both fighters are heading to the ring, and we’re about to be underway from Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles.
The world of social boxing has quite the set of crossover bouts scheduled for Saturday, September 10. FITE.tv will be airing a PPV card topped by AnEsonGib vs. Austin McBroom and including former NFL running backs Adrian Peterson vs. Le’Veon Bell. Additionally, the card features former NBA player Nick “Swaggy P” Young facing self-described “celebrity videographer” Malcolm Minikon.
Young was scheduled to fight Blueface, but the latter was pulled from the card when he could not get a boxing license from the California State Athletic Commission. Minikon was called on as a replacement for the exhibition bout. This is Young’s boxing debut, while Minikon lost a four-round exhibition decision in his March debut against Armz Korleone.
You’ll be stunned to learn DraftKings Sportsbook has not posted odds for this bout. Nonetheless, we’ll have live updates with round-by-round scoring when the fights gets started. The main card is reportedly starting at 9 p.m. and this is the third fight of that card. It’s unclear how many rounds this fight is scheduled for, but we’ll be scoring whatever it is!
Nick “Swaggy P” Young vs. Malcolm Minikon round-by-round results
Round 1: 10-9 Swaggy P
Neither of these guys are any good, but Young did land a right hand that scored. Unless Minikon can get inside the longer former NBA player, he’s not going to be able to land much.
Round 2: 10-9 Swaggy P
An original push from Iggy Azalea’s ex- saw a left followed up with a right that saw Minikon run to the corner. The follow up from Young was pretty ineffective, but it’s the biggest scoring moment so far.
Round 3: 10-9 Swaggy P
The closest thing Minikon did to damage was an illegal rabbit punch, which Young was given some time to recover from by the referee. Young doesn’t seem to like to get hit, but thanks to his reach and speed he’s not getting touched very much at all.
Round 4: Uhhhh Minikon wins??
I have no idea what happened. During what looked like a break, Young took a forearm to the head and actually fell out of the ring. But the referee called it a clash of heads, and the fight has been stopped.
"SWAGGY P" NICK YOUNG GOES THROUGH THE ROPES— Tyler Lapband (@MrMason251x) September 11, 2022
Since it’s an exhibition and Young certainly didn’t look like he wanted to continue, really not sure how we call this. I think Minikon wins as Young was outside the ring and then clearly wanted the fight stopped, but if this was a real boxing bout we’d go to the scorecards where Young is ahead.
But at least it’s over.
