YOUTUBE boxing sensation Salt Papi looks unrecognizable after his dramatic weight loss.
The boxer has lost 165 pounds since starting his boxing career in 2022.
Daddy rose to fame filming TikTok skits about lockdown.
His name is a nod to SaltBae, and he often posted budget versions of the steak seller’s video on his page.
As he explored British takeaways, he twisted and imitated the Turkish chef’s famous technique of pouring salt over his shoulder.
The videos allowed him to slowly build his social media following until he had over 4.2 million followers on TikTok and a total of 125.8 million likes for all his videos.
His life changed dramatically when he fought Hamad Khan in March 2022.
Boxing slowly became Dad’s passion and he lost a whopping 165 pounds in the process.
After defeating Khan, he entered KSI’s boxing competition and faced Andy Warski on August 27th.
Salt Papi KO’d Warski, who was making his debut, within 15 seconds at the O2 Arena.

This caught the attention of another social media star, Logan Paul, who tweeted, seconds after Salt Papi’s win, “Salt Papi vs Jake Paul.”
Salt Papi also impressed Chris Eubank Jr., who said, “The guy fell asleep, amazing.”
“If you look at him, he looks like he works 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in a cheese factory, so to see him come out of there and moonwalk and dance and lick his lips and then KO a guy, that’s it blockbuster right there.” .”
He KO’d Josh Brueckner in January 2023.
And he no longer looks like he’s doing “nine-to-five in a cheese factory,” as Eubank put it, but is now unrecognizable slim.
But he will be trying to recover from his last appearance in the ring when he lost to Anthony Taylor, a professional boxer who previously fought Tommy Fury.
Papi had caused quite a stir in the YouTube boxing section and even went into the fight as a slight favorite.
However, Taylor’s experience proved to be too much.
Papi hopes his lean physique will lead to even better performances the next time he steps in the ring.
