MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – The world’s biggest social media stars will be under one roof at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens on Saturday.
The Social Gloves “Battle of the Platforms” will be a fight to the finish for TikTokers and YouTubers. More than 500 million fans are expected to be watching as the social media stars go head to head in the boxing ring.
