For someone who was only trained for a month, Ben surely had the guts to participate in a YouTuber vs TikTokers Boxing match against YouTuber, Landon McBroom, which is itself a challenge for a YouTuber, although it is starting to be quite prevalent these days. As expected, it did not take McBroom, a natural-born boxer, to dominate and win against Azelart, who had not even punched a single person before one month of their match.
