Blueface and UK bad boy TikToker Ed Matthews are fighting in a week … and the social media star from across the pond isn’t looking to put in a full night’s work — he says he’ll starch the American rapper in the first round!
TMZ Sports talked to 19-year-old Matthews earlier in the week … just days after the bout was added to the Kingpyn Boxing card, going down April 22 at OVO Arena Wembley in London, Ed’s home turf.
“It’s a big fight, obviously a lot’s on the line. Last minute, as well. Usually I’d be in a 6-week camp, but it’s been a 2-week camp. Not that that’s gonna change anything. I’ll still have the same gameplan,” Matthews told us.
But, that doesn’t mean he isn’t ready to go … Ed, who’s 1-0 in the boxing ring, says he’s not only in the “best shape” of his life but, “I’m definitely the best I’ve ever been.”
26-year-old, 6’3″ tall Blueface has experience in the ring, too, but Ed says it won’t matter.
“It’s a first-round knockout, I’ve already seen it, trust me.”
Matthews says he’s actually a fan of Blueface, and admitted while it’s likely the rapper doesn’t know who he is, he will soon enough.
“It’s weird actually because I used to listen to his tunes, but I feel like he fell off from the music scene a bit. I ain’t heard any of his tunes in a sec, but they used to bang. it’s weird, it’s a bit nostalgic fighting him,” Ed said.
“He definitely don’t have a f****** clue who I am, but he’s gonna!”
In addition to Blueface and Matthews, a bunch of big-time influencers are also fighting on the card, including a rematch between Aneson Gib and Austin McBroom! 👊
