Triller Fight Club’s shakeup of the boxing world will continue with the fighting debut of Diplo. Yes, that Diplo.
The noted DJ, songwriter and record producer is targeted to lace up the gloves for a Triller Fight Club boxing match on June 5th in Miami, Florida. Diplo — a.k.a. Thomas Wesley Pentz — is accustomed to performing under bright lights. This time it’ll be very different, though, as after putting in hours of training behind the scenes, he’ll step inside the ring against a yet-to-be-determined opponent.
The news is expected to become official during Saturday’s Triller Fight Club event in Atlanta, where Diplo will perform a set on the pay-per-view card headlined by YouTuber Jake Paul vs. former MMA champion Ben Askren.
