Arnold Schwarzenegger and Logan Paul present the Slap Fighting Championship at the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus, OH. Here’s how to watch.
Strange as it may seem, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Logan Paul are teaming up to present the Slap Fighting Championship at the Arnold Sports Festival on Saturday, March 5th.
Yes, you read that correctly.
Schwarzenegger and Paul are an odd couple, but in 2022, the unexpected awaits.
Before Schwarzenegger was the world’s most famous action star, he was the most iconic bodybuilder in history. He rose to fame as a seven-time Mr. Olympia champion. His physical mystique combined with his charisma translated to screen as he embarked on a prolific film career.
Schwarzenegger then turned his fame into a political run, serving as governor of California from 2003 to 2011. His days in politics are behind him, but he is still active in film.
Schwarzenegger is still finding ways to do this show love for bodybuilding and other sports that some see as odd. After all, bodybuilding was considered abnormal in the 1970s, but Schwarzenegger changed all that.
In 1989, Schwarzenegger founded the Arnold Classic bodybuilding competition, which due to its success morphed into the Arnold Sports Festival. Schwarzenegger offers several days of non-mainstream sports and its Arnold Classic competition during the festival.
This is where the slap fight comes into play.
Schwarzenegger teamed up with Logan Paul to produce and host the Slap Fighting Championship at the Arnold Sports Festival. Paul’s YouTube and boxes Fame lends hype and attention to the event, which takes place in Paul’s home state.
In a slap fight, two competitors face each other, separated by a small table. They take turns battling it out with incredible strength for three rounds until there’s a knockout or, if it’s long-distance, the judges determine a winner.
The main event of the Slap Fighting Championship features heavyweights Dawid “Zaleś” Zalewski (16-0) and Koa “Da Crazy Hawaiian” Viernes (9-0). Zalewski is a three-time champion, and Viernes is the first American to win a super heavyweight championship.
