YouTube is working to remove all challenge videos.

The years-old risky dare has resurfaced in recent days as the latest perverse, potentially life-threatening internet challenge.

The more likely reason was publicity surrounding a phenomenon that had gone viral a few months earlier, the so-called "Tide pod challenge", which triggered safety warnings from poison control experts and led to a ban on videos of people eating laundry detergent.

Leaner and lighter Joshua still outweighs Parker on the scales
The 26-year-old makes the third defence of his WBO belt after claiming the vacant title against American Andy Ruiz in 2016. What better way to hype that this fight is finally going to happen? "I just want to secure that win one way or another".
