A YouTuber who was pummeled in a boxing match donated his six-figure purse from the fight to a Harlem youth organization.
Russian-born physician Mikhail Varshavski, 33, better known to his online fans as “Doctor Mike,” gifted $125,000 from his bout last month to the Boys and Girls Club of Harlem on Saturday. The money will fund after-school programs for students, including college prep and tutoring.
“I took an ‘L,’ meaning [the boxing match] was a loss, but the real L was learning that you can have something great come out of a loss,” Varshavski told The Post, adding he hopes the programs inspire kids to pursue careers in the STEM, or science, technology, engineering and math, fields.
Varshavski, 33, who is a practicing physician at Chatham Family Medicine in Chatham, NJ, runs a YouTube channel with more than 10 million subscribers where he regularly shares health advice as well as entertaining clips of him reacting to TV shows’ medical scenes.
In late October, Varshavski went four rounds in Glendale, Arizona, against MMA fighter Chris Avila in a Showtime pay-per-view match. Avila won the fight by unanimous decision, CBS Sports reported.
Varshavski previously made headlines for being named “Sexiest Doctor Alive” by People Magazine in 2015 and saving a passenger’s life aboard an international flight in 2019.
