The Island Boys are masters at drumming up negative reception. This time they attracted heat for a video showing the pair trying to box each other.
The video, originally posted on Island Boy’ Flyysoulja’s account, was picked up by a number of outlets. And people weren’t friendly.
In the box ad, you can see the twins throw punches in the air for 30 seconds while making fight sounds, then off-screen you’ll hear, “Ay, tell ’em all where to book you.” The twins begin then with a sale for her cameo and mirror another boxing video posted on twin brother KodiyakRedd’s account with the same cameo promo.
The outlet, retweeted by ESPN Ringside, urges viewers to “rate the Island Boys’ boxing skills on a 1-10,” with many commenting: “Zero.”

Comments on the videos and on Twitter mocked the brothers. comedian and boxer CoreyB came swinging in and said, “S***. I thought I was watching 2 wild cats do it.”
Fitness influencer Bradley Martyn also voiced his opinion, albeit in a much simpler way, simply replying, “What?”
Referring to the Bryce Hall beef currently brewing around an alleged 2v1 fight, another user commented, “Maybe I treated Bryce Hall too harshly.”
Bryce Hall, without directly citing the boxing video, also posted on his own Twitter with an unverified claim that the fight between them was confirmed. He said: “The island boys have accepted my offer to fight and I’ve just been sent rare training material. Looks like it’s going to be a challenging fight for me,” before moving on to a video titled “Island Boys Making Out.”

Former MMA Bantamweight Champion Tara LaRosa was also seen voicing her opinions in the videos. “Could someone please feed them ffs.”
After the intense reception, there was no direct reaction from the guys themselves and no confirmation as to whether they were really preparing for a fight against another social media star with this video or just trying to secure the cameo bag.
