    Don't let anyone tell you influencer boxing is a gimmick when it's responsible for bringing us high-quality sports entertainment just like this.

    Spectators were given some extra bang for their buck when Likkleman stormed the stage to assail fellow social media personality 'bdave' at the weigh-ins for Misfits Boxing 4. YouTube star KSI will face off against pro gamer FaZe Temperrr in the main event at Wembley Arena after grappler Dillon Danis pulled out of their original bout.

    But the combatants couldn't wait until then to get the action underway as Likkleman—who, as far as fans know, isn't fighting on Saturday—seized his opportunity to brawl with bdave. The latter will feature on the Misfits Boxing 4 undercard, though the identity of his opponent won't be revealed until the evening of the fight.

    Which fight at Misfits Boxing 4 are you most looking forward to? Let us know in the comments section.

    Three-foot tall Likkleman—real name Aiden Henry—crafted his own David versus Goliath tale against a much taller target. Height deficit be damned, however, as the man once known as 'Britain's smallest prisoner' appeared to get the better of their exchange.

    Bdave appeared on stage decked out in all white before shedding his gown as the weigh-in announcer can be heard asking: "Is this the mystery opponent?" Likkleman then proceeded to take the American down after a short stand-off, and a group of security guards stepped in to break up the scuffle.

    One can only hope bdave has another opponent lined up rather than seeing a repeat of that rollicking inside the ring. That's despite the fact fans in attendance seemed to get a laugh out of the mismatch, whipping their cameras out en masse 'for the content'.

    Bdave appeared to confirm Likkleman will not be the one staring him down when the action gets underway on Saturday. When one follower joked on Twitter that there was "no way you think he’s fighting a dwarf," the prankster replied: "Lmaooo right! [People are] slow."

    It may be just as well considering Likkleman professes to having spent 14 separate stints in prison. It was while he was convicted for burglary that the petit pugilist first found fame online, going on to make a music career for himself in the process.

    All things considered, bdave may be the fortunate to ultimately swerve that matchup as fans find out his anonymous opponent on Saturday. Misfits Boxing 4 is scheduled to get underway on DAZN at around 7 p.m. UK time, while the ring walks for the main event are expected to start at around 10:15 p.m..
