YouTube sensation Austin McBroom is making headlines for his violent brawl with TikTok star Bryce Hall ahead of their celebrity boxing match, but what else do we know about him?
McBroom is a well-known YouTuber who shot to fame after posting videos onto the video platform of his young and family and their daily routines.
While he has amassed a large fan base expanding to over 18m subscribers, the 29-year-old initially gained a reputation for being a good basketball player.
McBroom and his wife Catherine Paiz - also known as 'The ACE Family' - have become two of the most successful and highest-earning YouTubers on the planet.
Since they first started sharing their lives on the platform in 2016, the duo has amassed more than 19m subscribers and reportedly earn quite a pretty penny from their videos.
But just how did this famous family come to be and what else do we know about Austin McBroom?

He is head of 'The ACE Family', a YouTube channel that he shares with his wife Catherine and their three young children.
The pair welcomed another child in June last this year, a boy named Steel.
McBroom posted to Instagram after their addition was born, captioning the picture: "Son, your big sisters made me the luckiest father in the world and you've completed my dream." Cute, right?
The couple and their children have over 19m subscribers on YouTube.

How Did Austin McBroom And The ACE Family Get Famous?
Before they met, Austin McBroom and Catherine Paiz were well on their way to finding fame individually.
Paiz and McBroom already had decent social media followings on their own.
But once they met, started dating, and decided to combine their social star power, there was no stopping the camera-friendly couple.
Together, they created a YouTube channel and started vlogging about their daily lives - because, well, that's what people are interested in these days, obviously.
After having their first child in 2016, they branded themselves as 'The ACE Family', which came from the first letters of each family member - Auston, Catherine and Elle.
The channel has become incredibly popular in a relatively short amount of time.
It hit the 1m subscriber mark in 2017 - the same year the couple got engaged - and was up to 14m subscribers by December of 2018.
The McBroom's had two more children - Alaia in 2018 and Steel in 2020 - and continued to share and bless the world their precious family moments.
What happened in the 'slap' video?
In the video, McBroom is lying on the sofa with his family and speaking to the camera about his new workout regime.
Flexing his arm muscles and slapping his own behind, he says "I've been working out too much. My s*** getting fat."
He then slaps his own daughter's buttocks and she stands up on their sofa, exclaiming: "Oh, god damn."
Wife Catherine then intervenes by saying: "Austin just starting working out, can you guys tell?"
That's pretty weird, mate.
Did Austin McBroom buy a minor adult candy from a sex shop?
This is not the first time McBroom has come under fire.
Social media hit out at him last year for taking Catherine Piaz's younger sister to a sex shop.
He proceeded to buy her a phallic-shaped lollipop.
Clearly, there isn't much going on upstairs for McBroom - and as a father himself, why does he think this is appropriate to film, and then post to social media for the world to see? Weird.
Last year, fellow YouTube star Cole Carrigan accused McBroom of sexual assault in a now-deleted video titled 'The Truth About The Ace Family'.
McBroom defended himself by stating that Carrigan's video was defamatory and that he would be taking legal action against him.
What is Austin McBroom's net worth?
The former NCAA basketball player is estimated to be worth a whopping $5m, which makes sense considering the success of their family's channel.

Now jumping on the bandwagon is TikTok star Bryce Hall and YouTuber Austin McBroom - who were seen promoting their upcoming fight on Tuesday when the event took a chaotic turn.
Much like Jake Paul's scuffle with Floyd Mayweather two weeks prior, the press room turned into an all-out brawl, and the broadcast ended shortly thereafter.
As McBroom was talking, Hall suddenly rushed his opponent, leading to a scuffle between the two.
The two were grabbing ahold of each other as Hall went to the floor, with their teams struggling to separate them.

He went on to play 66 games in two seasons with the Saint Louis Billikens.
He played his fourth season of college basketball with the Eastern Washington Eagles.
