WingsOfRedemption (real name Jordie McCraty Jordan) is 37 years of age and found fame online as a gamer and streamer, especially in the early days of Call of Duty.

Boogie2988 (real name Steven Jay Williams) is 48 years of age and became famous as a gamer and sketch comedian.

They were matched together due to their sizes with both unable to find any others of a similar weight to fight against.

The bout consisted of three, one-minute rounds amid concerns for the health of both men.

When they hit the scales on Friday, Boogie2988 stepped up first and weighed 391.6lbs. He was followed by WingsOfRedemption who weighed 404.3lbs.

The fight began with Wings landing a series of hard punches on Boogie who looked surprised by this development.

He took a standing count, but was then allowed an extended break as his shorts kept falling down and had to be taped up.

The action resumed briefly before he heard the bell.

It was clear early on that only one of the two men had done any real training for the fight.

At the start round two, Wings stopped Boogie as he pummelled him again and the referee ended the bout.
