Fil-Brit Tiktoker Salt Papi puts the world on notice in latest boxing win

A new Pinoy boxer rising? This might be the case if we’re talking about the social media influencers-turned-boxers.

Tiktoker Salt Papi was the talk of the town after his vicious knockout against Youtube sensation Josh Brueckner, a taller, bigger guy.

The Filipino-British boxer landed a perfect right hand right to the face of Brueckner in just the first round.

They served as an undercard of KSI vs. Faze Temperr.

Pro boxer and rising star Ryan Garcia was impressed by Salt Papi’s victory convincing him that the latter should next face Jake Paul.

They are both undefeated in boxing and all of their wins are via knockout.

After the victory, Salt Papi posted a video clip on his Instagram showing a comparison of his knockout to Manny Pacquiao’s iconic KO hit to Ricky Hatton.

The post received lots of comments including boxing’s only eight-division world champion himself.

Pacquiao wrote on the comment “Pwede Na” in which Salt Papi replied with a “salamat po.”
