    Boxxer chief Ben Shalom blasted the Misfits promotion starring OnlyFans star Elle Brooke as a 'freak show.'

    Misfits, headed by Youtube icon KSI, has attracted huge online interest with boxing cards including social media sensations like adult film star Brooke.

    TikTok hit Brooke has kickstarted a boxing career through Misfits, beating rival Faith Ordway with a first-round stoppage last Saturday. Manchester City fan Brooke only began her boxing journey last May and secured her first victory over Love Island's AJ Bunker in July.

    And she is now targeting a fight against Astrid Wett, which would settle a long-running bitter feud between the OnlyFans duo.

    That fight would also likely be under the Misfits promotion, which is making waves but also causing controversy in the boxing world.

    Misfits, carried by DAZN, is growing rapidly in popularity, with the aim of being the global host of the biggest crossover fights in boxing.

    But it has also raised some eyebrows in boxing circles with competitors like Brooke behind defined as boxers rather than mere entertainers.

    And Shalom, promoting this Saturday's middleweight showdown between Chris Eubank Jr and Liam Smith, believes the shows are glorified 'celebrity white collar' events.

    "It's dangerous to call the Misfits card boxing, it's entertainment, it's celebrity white collar, but make sure it's not called boxing because it's not," he told Boxxer.

    "It's confusing and misleading and a bit of a freak show. I've not got anything against it, it what it is – I don't have anything against it.

    "But it's entertainment for their followers. If they were playing football, golf, or swimming they'd have a sold out arena, the people are coming to watch them.

    "I think it's a bit funny when boxing media are covering it because it's not boxing. I've nothing against these guys, but just be upfront about it, it's celebrity white collar."

    Brooke, however is taking her new boxing career very seriously as she eyes a third bout, this time against fellow adult content creator Wett.

    “Man has plans for that fight, but it’s not any time soon so don’t get too excited about it," Brooke said after her most recent win.

    “Hopefully, in an ideal world, we’ll just both keep winning, and it’s only going to get bigger and bigger and more anticipated and everyone’s going to see it more.

    “The hatred’s always gonna be there, so I guess we’ll see. But she needs to keep on winning."
