The "Slap Fighting Championship" is a new league, announced in February 2022. The first public event will be at the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus, Ohio (United States) and is being promoted by Arnold Schwarzenegger and Logan Paul. Some of the billed fighters include champions such as David "Zales" Zaleski and Da Crazy Hawaiian.
Slap Fighting Championship is a rebranded version of the Polish "PunchDown" league, for the American market. The organizers and many of the billed fighters are originally from PunchDown.
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Logan Paul, together with Fanmio and PunchDown, are bringing you the premier of Slap Fighting Championship. Watch the adrenaline and intensity of one the most exciting new combat sports with 16 different matches including 3-time champion "Zale?" Zalewski taking on the American slap fighting sensation, Da Crazy Hawaiian, Saturday, March 5, 2022.
On April 24th, 2022, the Chin Check Slap Down Championship hosted their first event in Stockton, California.
The 3 slap fights were:
On March 5th, 2022 in Columbus, Ohio, two of the world's best slap fighters faced off against each other at the Arnold Schwarzenegger sporting event, hosted by Logan Paul.
Both slap warriors gracefully took powerful shots in the first round. In the second round, Da Crazy Hawaiian gave Zales a slap that stunned him in a way that we've never seen him stunned before. Zales went "out" for a second and stumbled back so hard that it took 3 giant men to catch him so that he didn't fall on his ass.
Ultimately, David Zales won by way of knockout in the 3rd round, with Da Crazy Hawaiian slumping over onto the table before falling to the floor.
During the fight, Koa expressed his dissatisfaction with the fact that all judges were from Poland and that there were no judges from the USA. We also found it weird that one of the guys catching Koa was celebrating at the same time.
Hmmm... I think we need a rematch!
