Nathan ‘Dad’ Barnatt finished Matt Watson in the quickest YouTuber boxing match to date on Saturday.
Just seconds into the first round, Barnatt annihilated Watson. The 41-year-old pushed forward that much, his opponent turned his back and forced the referee to end the bout.
Barnatt, ‘Dad,’ is an American actor, comedian and singer who has over 300,000 subscribers on YouTube.
Watson is a comedian, musician and also a co-host of the SuperMega podcast.
Both Barnatt and Watson went head to head during Saturday night’s Creator Clash event. The bout turned out to be a real mismatch.
From the first bell, Barnatt was quick to press forward and cause havoc.
The viral clip shows ‘Dad’ throwing some precise punches to the head and the body of Watson in slow motion.
From the clip, it looks like the left hook appeared to have rocked Watson and was ultimately the root of his downfall.
In the end, Watson turned his back in the corner, which then forced the referee to intervene and call the fight.
Watson appeared to have found the amusing side of the defeat, however, tweeting straight after the loss: “I WON.”
Later, he added: “That’s not the first time I’ve lasted 22 seconds.”
It’s fair to say that the whole card produced some real shocks and twists, much to the delight of YouTube and combat sports fans.
In the main event, Dr. Mike defeated iDubbbz via unanimous decision.
iDubbbz did well to go the distance with Dr. Mike considering Mike has 10 years worth of training in the sport of boxing.
However, Barnatt’s performance will make the headlines after his scintillating determination to finish the fight right from the first bell.
