Tik Tok star DK Money brutally knocked out in one round by YouTuber King Kenny

British YouTube star King Kenny viciously knocked out Tik Tok sensation DK Money when the pair met in the boxing ring last night at Misfits Boxing's third event.

The Watford native was defending his ICB international cruiserweight title for the first time on his Stateside debut, and faced DK Money who had been training for a longer period than his rival. However, the skills that the champion had accrued working under his brother, renowned trainer Daley Perales, saw him look a slicker mover throughout the contest.

Kenny had faced controversy for his previous two fights with Faze Clan members Thomas 'Temperrr' Oliveira and Isaiah "Sensei" Ocasio-Pantoja, with both going to decision. His victory over Oliveira was ultimately overturned in an unprecedented recount due to judges feeling unsafe in the venue, and fans were outraged when he was deemed to have "robbed" Sensei in August.

But he left no doubt in the first round of his meeting with DK Money, allowing the American to swing wildly before dropping him with a thudding right hand. DK attempted to rise to meet the ten count, but the referee waved the contest off, handing Kenny a successful first title defence in his official professional debut.

His Beta Squad cast-mates Chunkz, Aj Shabeel, Sharky and London Mayoral candidate Niko Omilana were all in attendance to watch the fight, adorning cowboy hats for the Texas occasion. And Omilana was thrilled to see his teammate land a victory free of controversy for the first time.

"It was a decision, a knockout decision!," Omilana told Mirror Fighting after the fight. "It was crazy, people were clowning Ken for ages but this guy works hard. He's been fighting people who've got far more experience, and he's been putting in performances against them.

"This time he's fought someone who's only got six more months or a year more experience than him and you see what happens. That's the level Kenny's got to, he's been doing boxing for 18 months and that's how good he is - first one with no controversy and he still won it by decision, a knockout decision!"

Kenny is now keen to get a fight with fellow British YouTube star Jay Swingler, who won an ICB belt of his own just last month when he knocked out comedian Cherdleys in Sheffield. The pair have gone back-and-forth, and are likely to make that bout happen in the early part of next year.
