The latest entertainment venture for Arnold Schwarzenegger? The former governor of California and star of more than four dozen films has teamed with YouTube creator Logan Paul to launch the Slap Fighting Championship next month — featuring a roster of beefy men slapping the crap out of each other.
With the Slap Fighting Championship on March 5 in Columbus, Ohio, Logan Paul will Livestream it on his YouTube and Facebook channels, Fanmio.com along with many others.
Prepare to watch some brutal slaps March 5th with me and @loganpaul live and free on Logan’s YouTube and on @fanmio, Schwarzenegger tweeted Tuesday.
Paul, a controversial YouTuber, and actor, has mounted a boxing career. Last year, he and Floyd Mayweather sparred on the February 22 episode of Paul’s show “Impulsive.”
I love the absurdity of it,” Paul told USA Today. I love the idea that two guys could just stand across from each other and just slap each other and see who falls down first. It’s hilarious to me. It’s like, how is that a real event?
Schwarzenegger started out as a champion bodybuilder, who eventually starred in blockbuster movies like Conan the Barbarian, Terminator, Total Recall, and True Lies.
