The Island Boys will have an opportunity to show off their hands — and secure the bag — ’cause Flyysoulja and Kodiyakredd just got an offer to be cast on a boxing competition pitting social media stars against each other in the squared circle.
The new reality show is called “Ultimate Social Boxing” … and will pit 32 social media stars against one another as they attempt to fight their way to the top, and the winner will receive $1 million!
TMZ Sports talked to LiveOne founder Rob Ellin (brother of ‘Entourage’ creator Doug Ellin), and one of the people behind the show. Ellin is currently beginning to cast the series.
Two of those spots … well, Rob would like the Island Boys to enter the competition.
“We want you. It looks great. It looks energetic. It looks like those guys have those promotional skills. Again, to have that energy of becoming a true brand. Steve Austin, right? The Rock. Hulk Hogan. You want dolls made of you? You want a career? You wanna build brands? You want to own tequila companies? Yeah, sure. But, you better get yourself into boxing shape,” Ellin said.
Of course, the bros blew up after their song, “I’m An Island Boy” exploded in popularity last year.
And, they’ve seemingly taken up boxing lately … showing off their skills (😬) on social media, doing bag and mitt work.
Boxing and entertainment have become more intertwined over the last few years … and particularly since Jake Paul burst onto the boxing scene.
Paul flipped the sport on its head in many ways … but that could only happen because, like him or not, Jake’s a talented fighter.
Are the Island Boys? We may soon find out.
