The Island Boys are interestingly named Flyysoulja and Kodiyakredd. The duo went viral as their relaxing mantra in the pool made them TikTok famous. It appears, the brothers will soon have an opportunity to show off their boxing skills.
According to TMZ, Flyysoulja and Kodiyakredd just got an offer to take part in 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.
The winner of this celebrity boxing competition will receive $1 million dollars. It’s surely an eye-watering number and fans are having a hard time controlling their excitement over this. Meanwhile, TMZ Sports talked to LiveOne founder Rob Ellin (brother of ‘Entourage’ creator Doug Ellin), and one of the people behind the show.
Ellin shared with the outlet he is currently beginning to cast the series. Two of those spots were offered to the Island Boys to enter the competition. Ellin said, “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.” before adding,
“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,”
The bros blew up after their song, “I’m An Island Boy” exploded on social media last year. Now it appears, they’ve 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. Jake has proven to be a talented fighter, will the Island Boys follow in his footsteps? Only time will tell. Stay tuned to Thirsty.
