iDubbbz vs. RiceGum
On March 16th, 2018, influencer RiceGum appeared on Keemstar's YouTube channel Drama Alert to challenge iDubbbz to a boxing match, fuelled by a Content Cop video iDubbbz posted on RiceGum exposing him (shown below). IDubbbz did not respond to the boxing invitation until June 16th, 2021, when he tweeted, "I'm considering agreeing to this ricegum fight…uploads have been slow. But I'm worried about my health. What are the possible risks?"
On October 29th, 2021, YouTuber iDubbbz posted a video titled "You're hiding from me…" where he reveals that RiceGum who he has had a public feud with for years, was set to box him in an event that iDubbbz was setting up after talks. Originally, RiceGum wanted Keemstar to set up the event but iDubbbz refused to let that happen. In the video, iDubbbz explains that RiceGum wanted a million dollars to fight but iDubbbz refused, saying he wants the money from the event to go to charity. RiceGum backed out of the fight, with iDubbbz's video acting as a last effort to convince him to fight, gaining over 3.4 million views in six months (shown below). He also offered Keemstar the fight, who refused. He ends the video asking viewers who they'd want to see him fight instead of RiceGum.
On October 30th, iDubbbz shared a statement from RiceGum on Twitter where he officially backs out of the fight, calling iDubbbz "childish" for still making YouTube videos (shown below). IDubbbz writes, "The event will still happen without him. 🙃👊" in the tweet.
Between October and January 2022, iDubbbz made several tweets saying he was still looking for an opponent for the boxing event and hyping it up.

In the video he announces the date and location of the fight, taking place in Tampa, Florida, and links to the fight's website, thecreatorclash.com.
