YouTube star Ryan Taylor disqualified for brutal headbutt in boxing debut

Ryan Taylor was disqualified after he HEADBUTTED DK Money in the first round of their grudge fight.

The YouTubers took to the ring in London on the undercard of Deji's fight against Alex Wassabi which headlined the latest Showstar Boxing event.

But Taylor, who later complained he'd been hit low, shockingly butted his opponent for no reason in the opening session.

DK Money was sent to the canvas and the fight was immediately waved off.

Reacting to the headbutt, Stromedy, who had fought earlier and was in DK Money's corner, told Mirror Fighting : “That was f***ing b**** s***!” Stromedy.

"I don’t know what the f*** happened, that’s what I’m trying to guess. “What the f*** was that?!”

The crowd then sparked a riot as they reacted to the action with the emcee imploring fans to take their seats.


There were a number of famous faces in the crowd including former heavyweight world champion Anthony Joshua.

Derek Chisora was also there to lend their support, as was Deji's brother KSI who played a huge rule in sparking interest in YouTube boxing with this rivalries with Joe Weller and Logan Paul.

Earlier in the night, Salt Papi outpointed Halal Ham in the opening bout of the evening.

The second bout saw Stromedy do the same to Austin Sprinz over four rounds as the Canadian had his hand raised.

Anthony Taylor, who was beaten by Tommy Fury last year, took on Jay Cucciniello in what was essentially an exhibition bout organised at short notice.

Neither man was particularly interested in winning but it was Cucciniello who came out on top on the judges' scorecards.

Later, in a super-heavyweight clash, Armz Korleone took on Minikon with both men swinging for the hills.

Minikon had the better of the early exchanges but Armz Korleone began to take over in the third round.

And Minikon landed a big right hand in the last session as the American looked to earn a stoppage.

Armz Korleone was exhausted but took another left on the bell before the Brit was given the nod by two of the three judges while the third scored the fight a draw.
