Deen The Great went viral last weekend with an overly-extravagant celebration that failed miserably.
The social media star showed some silky skills on the way to defeating Evil Hero at London’s O2 Arena, stopping him in the opening round, exclusively live on DAZN Pay-Per-View.

He was fighting on the undercard of KSI’s ’Two Fights, One Night’ event in the capital and, after his win on Saturday night, face planted the canvas as he was unsuccessful in attempting a backflip, initially landing on his neck.
KSI outclassed Swarmz to secure a second-round victory, in what was his first bout of the night, before defeating Mexican pro, Luis Alcaraz Pineda, by stoppage after 54 seconds of the third round.
The American YouTube star Deen has been a hit promotionally and is signed to Daniel ‘Keemstar’ Keem and Yusef ‘Fousey’ Erakat’s Happy Punch Promotions.
Before his win, Deen was doing interviews with the media in which he said that he would like a crack at Ryan Garcia.
Garcia, 24, is an undefeated American talent with a huge social media following who is targeting massive fights in the lightweight and super-lightweight divisions, including a potential all-American showdown with Gervonta Davis, who is promoted by Floyd Mayweather.
‘King Ry’ returned from a hiatus earlier this year when he dropped former world champion Javier Fortuna en route to stopping him inside six rounds at the Cypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, leading to calls from the aforementioned Mayweather for the protegee to return to his natural division of lightweight and take on the man, Davis, who has the WBA ‘regular’ championship.
Evil Hero, who was on the wrong end of the fight against Deen The Great, is a star of the social media platform TikTok.
