A former Fortnite star has fallen out of favor and even been cast out from his clan. Now he is apparently looking for new opportunities. After a single victory in boxing in 2021, he now apparently wants to get into martial arts.
Who is Jarvis?

What is Jarvis doing now? As liljarvis, the influencer can still be found on YouTube and uploads videos there more or less regularly. He primarily markets himself and delivers reality content.
Videos about boxing have been coming up again and again for some time. That’s what seems to have fascinated Jarvis – and for a reason.
“Who should I fight next?”
What does Jarvis have to do with boxing? In June 2021 the “Battle of the Platforms” took place. There, well-known figures from YouTube competed against those from TikTok. Jarvis also participated and fought against the TikToker Michael Le.
The fight took place on June 12 and Jarvis won by a knockout (KO) in the 2nd round. This means: he hit his opponent so hard that he couldn’t get up again in time.
At the time, his opponent was a good deal smaller and slimmer than Jarvis himself. However, this is his only known victory in the boxing ring.
Since then, Jarvis has been celebrating his triumph with a prominent picture on Twitter, which he even used as a background:
Is he serious? Probably yes. As esports.gg reports, Jarvis now claims to have found his “passion for boxing”. Since he has been uploading content on the subject again and again since then, it is reasonable to assume that he wants to pursue a career here.
In one of his recent tweets on April 5, 2022, he asks his followers, “Who should I fight next?” Responses range from the rather bizarre offers to Jake and Logan Paul, who at times popularized influencer boxes at the time.
At least Logan Paul has meanwhile switched to wrestling, albeit with strange peculiarities:

Boxing is getting bigger and bigger on Twitch and Co.
The trend around martial arts is getting bigger, even in Germany. There was a big event here at the beginning of April, where several German influencers competed against each other in the ring.
The highlight of the evening was the match Trymacs vs. MckyTV. The two YouTubers and streamers actually have a close friendship. The encounter was more like the biblical fight of David against Goliath, but caused a lot of media hustle and bustle.
The subject of boxing came up again and again before that. The biggest Twitch streamer xQc, for example, also considered venturing into the ring. Asmongold, Esfand and some of their colleagues around them staged a fantasy match in the wrestling ring just before Christmas 2021.
The trend could actually pick up speed and even become the “next big thing” on Twitch and Co. MeinMMO author Maik Schneider has thought more deeply about this and explains why this is likely:
Streamer boxing matches work so well because it gives us what Twitch is all about
