Who is MrBeast? YouTuber challenges T-Series CEO Bhushan Kumar Dua to a boxing match – READ

MrBeast has challenged T-Series CEO Bhushan Kumar Dua to a boxing match, intensifying their YouTube feud. MrBeast announced the challenge on May 16, highlighting their 6 million subscriber gap.

In an unexpected twist in their continuing YouTube spat, Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson has challenged Bhushan Kumar Dua, CEO of Indian music firm T-Series, to a boxing match. MrBeast made this odd challenge on May 16 via X (previously Twitter), where he emphasised the existing subscriber disparity between his channel and T-Series, which is 6 million.

“I challenge the CEO of T-Series to a boxing match,” MrBeast said in a post that soon received over 10,000 likes and 200,000 views.

Bhushan Kumar Dua is the managing director and chairman of T-Series, a post he assumed in 1997 after the death of his father, Gulshan Kumar. Bhushan has gone on to become a well-known music producer and film director, with credits like “Tum Bin,” “Bhool Bhulaiyaa,” and “Patiala House.”

The challenge has sparked a lot of interest among MrBeast’s fan base, especially after his recent training sessions with Logan Paul, another well-known YouTuber and influencer fighter. Logan Paul was preparing for his own showdown against MMA fighter Dillon Danis in 2023, and his work with MrBeast has further strengthened MrBeast’s fan base.

MrBeast has been fairly open about his fitness journey. He has stated that he has been “lifting religiously” for the past 10 months, reducing his body fat from 40% to 20%.

“Woke up and realized I was obese, so I started lifting and walking 12,500 steps a day. Still got a long way to being yoked but I’m happy with my progress so far,” he posted, alongside a before-and-after photo.

This proposed boxing match adds another layer to the ongoing battle for the title of YouTube’s most subscribed channel. The feud dates back to 2019, when MrBeast backed PewDiePie in his subscriber count battle with T-Series.

Although PewDiePie finally gave up the top rank to T-Series, MrBeast has since risen as a serious competitor, overcoming many other producers to become T-Series’ primary adversary.
