- Salt Papi knocked Josh Brueckner in less than two rounds
- The internet star is now unbeaten as a pro and is waiting for his next opponent
As expected, Salt Papi rocked the OVO Arena in London Saturday as he savagely knocked out Josh Brueckner at Misfits Boxing 4: KSI vs. FaZe Temper. The social media influencer needed less than two rounds to get the job done.
What a knockout
Papi, whose real name is Nathaniel Bustamante, came in giving away five inches of height advantage against the 6-foot-1 Brueckner. Nevertheless, Papi still proved that he was the better boxer inside the ring, having outmatched his opponent since the opening round.
In Round 2, Papi, who had been mocking and taunting Brueckner, even gained more confidence and finally landed a devastating straight left that landed right on his opponent’s chin. The punch was so crunchy that Brueckner immediately fell down and never made it back to his feet. Papi was then declared the winner via KO.

A seriously impressive streak
Papi may have established a name for himself as an internet star by creating funny videos on social media, but his remarkable winning streak in professional boxing has been seriously impressive.
Before knocking out Brueckner, Papi was coming off back-to-back victories. He pulled off a successful pro boxing debut last August when he also knocked the living lights out of Andy Warski. Prior to that, Papi already impressed in an exhibition match in May 2022 against Halal Ham where he won via unanimous decision.
Brueckner, on the other hand, was handed his first boxing defeat, having won his first two matches as a pro.
Papi is now unbeaten as a pro and is currently waiting to be booked for his next fight. After the epic KO win over Brueckner, Papi will surely be one of the most sought-after YouTube boxing sensations at present.
