Originally, ‘The Nightmare’ was supposed to take on fellow YouTuber Alex Wassabi. However, Wassabi was forced to pull out of the fight with an apparent concussion. This led to the Brit deciding to fight two people on the same night.
Pineda was also not the first choice to be the Londoner’s pro boxer opponent. Originally it was Ivan Nikolov who was scheduled to face the social media star in the second main event. However, he was cut off from the event after he was seen having neo-Nazi tattoos that caused fan outrage.

Faze previously fought and won against King Kenny, while Blueface also scored a win against TikTok star Kane Trujillo.
