Social Knockout was a highly anticipated influencer combat event organized by TK Fight Nights, in collaboration with Dubai Sports Council that was held on July 30 Friday. TK Fight Nights is an MMA, Boxing, Muay Thai, and KI event organizer, one of Dubai’s pioneers.

The founder of TK Fight Night, Tam Khan, revealed a new event called Social Knockout after taking a brief hiatus from the industry. Social Knockout was the first combat event to accept payment solely in cryptocurrencies and took place at Coca Cola Area in Dubai.

About the Event

Social Knockout marked the boxing debut of a promising young athlete and Emirati influencer, Rashed Saif Belhasa. Rashed is a nineteen-year-old YouTube star with millions of fans that know him best as Money Kicks. He has been training for the last few months with Tam Khan to prepare for the fight. Another international YouTube sensation, Adam Saleh, will also be making his Middle Eastern boxing debut.

“Preparing for this fight is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do,” said Rashed, “they are pushing me to my limit at TK; I’ve never had to train this hard, but it will all be worth it.”

Rashed was up against a prominent social media influencer in the Middle East, Anas Al Shayib, in the first-ever combat event funded solely by one cryptocurrency. Anas Al Shayib is a famous influencer who has gained over 1.8 million followers on Instagram and over 2 million subscribers on YouTube. Rashed was ultimately the winner in the final round.

TK Fight Night fans and the followers of the influencers participating in the event were super excited for Social Knockout as it included several surprises, such as performances from some of the most popular global artists like Guru Randhawa, Fat Joe, and A Boogie wit da Hoodie. These artists performed live in the event setting the mood for the evening with their greatest hits.
