Dr Disrespect deletes tweet suggesting a series of fight; gaming community reacts to the draw

Since it was an exhibition match, there was going to be no official scoring and result. However, there were boxing legends present at the match who scored the eight 2-minute rounds. The unofficial verdict? The match was a draw.

While the verdict satisfied most, Dr Disrespect wasn’t happy. He stated his ideas in a tweet before the match ended. However, he deleted the tweet as soon as the match got over.

Doc’s tweet read, “If I were the promoter, I’d host every interview and call this event, The Best of 3. Tyson wins this fight. Roy gets in shape and wins the 2nd fight. 3rd fight… 50 million on the line.”

FaZe clan came out to support Mike before the game. The clan’s content creator Nickmercs also replied to the tweet supporting Tyson.

HECZ, CEO of OpTic Gaming, on the other hand, just enjoyed the spirit of the game. He paid tribute to both the fighters and accepted the draw, calling everyone a winner.
