Popular YouTube streamer Valkyrae recently took up boxing – and she’s already received offers to fight at upcoming influencer boxing events.
Rachell ‘Valkyrae’ Hofstetter is one of the most popular online broadcasters. With over 3 million YouTube subscribers, she is also a co-owner of 100 Thieves and has appeared in some major music videos.
However, she is in the process of adding another big title to her resume after dipping into the sport of boxing.
The streamer was inspired after watching Creator Clash last weekend, which saw 18 influencers go head-to-head in the boxing ring for charity.
The event made history by holding the first-ever women’s influencer boxing match, with Twitch streamer “JustaMinx” emerging victorious over opponent “Yodeling Haley”.
Shortly after, Rae posted a photo of herself in a boxing gym in gym clothes, showing that she’s ready to start her own foray into martial arts after witnessing the weekend’s fist action.

It didn’t take long for other influencers and event organizers to take notice. According to Valkyrae, just days after announcing her intention to start the sport, she was tapped as a possible fighter for future boxing showdowns.
“I have not confirmed a fight event,” she clarified in a recent livestream. “I haven’t. Have I been asked to a few? Yes, I’ve been invited to a few different boxing events.”

With iDubbbz confirming that a Creator Clash 2 will definitely happen, fans are excited to see if she’ll make it to the next battle map when 2023 rolls around.
The streaming group OTK has also expressed a desire to host its own boxing event. With the influencer boxing bug at an all-time high, there’s no telling when, where or with whom Valkyrae will make her first boxing debut – but she’s already received challenges from big names like WWE’s Zelina Vega.
