Yep, I Just Let Creator Clash Know I’m Interested

If you don’t know what Creator Clash is, it’s the boxing event set up by YouTuber, iDubbbzz. Essentially, it’s a night of various creators boxing it out for charity. And although I don’t have a massive audience, I thought it would be fun to throw my lot in for the next event.

For one thing, I love doing stuff like this for charity. Every year, I do what I can to help out Extra Life by playing games and running ColoradoPlays.com. So, when someone puts together a fun tournament like this, you can bet that I’m down.

The problem, though, is that I’m not exactly a huge YouTuber. In fact, Crossing Colorado’s YouTube channel has very few subscribers. That’s one on me, though.

You can’t build an audience if you don’t publish regular content. Currently, the only consistent thing I’ve been able to keep up with has been the live streams.

Why Apply for Creator Clash?

After watching Ian’s interview with Phil Defranco, Ian is iDubbbz’s real name, he mentioned that if anyone is interested in the next Creator Clash, then send the Twitter account a DM.

So, I didn’t hesitate and sent them a message as soon as I could. Not that I believe for one second that anyone is going to read the DM.

Still, it’s kind of inspiring in a way.

I Love Charity Events Like This

It’s one thing to give money to various charities and call it a day. I am driven more by action. It’s why ColoradoPlays.com sends 30% of ALL its income to Extra Life, why I often attend silent auctions, and why I used to go to the Halloween charity party for Geeks of Grandeur.

I’m not sure how iDubbbz assigns the charities, but it would be pretty cool if I could box for Extra Life.

Anyway, big events like this usually drive a lot of attention to various charity groups. They also tend to provide an incredible amount of money for those charities depending on how the event is set up.

Gives Me a Reason to Train Up

Well, if I ever needed the motivation to lose weight and focus more on physical fitness, this would be it. Sure, Creator Clash is primarily for charity. But I don’t want to get my ass handed to me in the ring.

Something this big would warrant a hell of a lot more effort than I’ve been putting in recently.

In fact, I’m going to start today. I know that I’d have a better chance of winning the Power Ball lottery than being invited to the next event. Still, it’s motivational.

Would Love to Show What You Can Do at 40+

Most of the fighters in the last Creator Clash were quite a bit younger than I. And part of the purpose of Crossing Colorado is to demonstrate that it’s never too late to focus on health and fitness.

Yes, recently, I’ve had some serious speedbumps in my life that have made it a bit more difficult to maintain myself. Nonetheless, I am confident I can do much more than just lug around this 230-pound dad bod.

Would I Really Box in Creator Clash II?

I would absolutely love to box in the next Creator Clash event. But I’m also realistic.

Charities would gain more attention and cash with people who are more recognizable on the YouTube platform. And honestly, I’m just not that pronounced.

Big names draw an audience, and I’m so small that I don’t even register as a size.

I’m talking about the channel, get your head out of the gutter.

There are very few things that can get me to put on the gloves again. Charity events are probably one of the more effective ways to entice me to box.

Well, the number one method would be to get me in the ring with V Shred.

Given the chance, though, I would take a beating for a good cause. That is as long as they gave me adequate time to train up.

Pretty much any global event can inspire me to get moving. That’s how I busted up both feet during my 5k walk for Runkeeper. Though, that was much easier to get into…you just had to sign up.

In any event, you can bet that I would take a fight quite seriously.

Creator Clash is Still a Fun and Amazing Idea

It’s events like this that really stand out for me. Whether it’s supporting celebrity boxing matches or playing video games for 24 hours straight, I love charity ideas that go beyond the simple donation button.

And although I would love to get a DM back from Creator Clash saying I’m in, I’m not holding my breath. As I said, they need bigger names to draw an audience.

But I will be ordering the pay-per-view for the next event.

What kind of charities have you been a part of in the past outside of directly giving an organization cash?

    Haha you’re so crazy, Michael. That would be fun, though, to watch vlogs of you training for a boxing match. I can hear the Rocky music already…
