Zach Hirsch, widely known online as Mystic Zach, is not only an influential digital celebrity but he is also know for being the most accurate young sports analyst and handicapper in the world. Last season at only seventeen years old, Zach picked over 90% of all football, basketball and combat sports correctly. Amazingly he picked 21 straight college football games correctly including the SEC Championship, the College Semi-Finals and the National Championship Game. He has predicted hundreds of boxing, MMA and most recently BKFC Bareknuckle bouts correctly in addition to accurately calling the last four NFL Super Bowls.
His love of sports ultimately became the foundation for one of the most coveted nouvelle sports and lifestyle digital brands of today.
His success has translated into a massive Instagram® following – over 350,000 strong – and a burgeoning line or exclusive apparel. Mystic Zach has also been recognized by some of the most iconic sportsmen of all time as a virtuoso handicapper with an effortless winning personality.
More recently, Mystic Zach landed a deal as the official on air Handicapper for Bare Knuckle Championship and ringside reporter for the Impact Network. Now Zach is delivering to his audiences with his latest mysticism, scoring not just one, but several highly coveted exclusive interviews; Logan Paul, Jake Paul and Roy Jones!
Former world champions Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. met in an eight-round exhibition fight Saturday night at Staples Center in Los Angeles. The fight was the main event of a six-fight PPV event, and Zach scored the behind the scenes scoop with all the top voices in the sport.
‘I had a great time in LA, I’m grateful for the opportunity to have been in camp with Jake and B.J. Flores again. Getting to interview Logan and Roy Jones Jr. made this trip even more special.’ said Zach Hirsch. He went on to say:
‘I think influencer and celebrity boxing is here to stay. It’s been great being a part of bringing generation Z fans to boxing.’ This is a great point and Hirsch is one of the first to ever go on record saying this.
We spoke with Zach and he was glad to share a few of his insights with our readers:
What is the one book that you recommend our community should read and why?
My all-time favorite book is The Sports Gene. I really love that it’s unique but also relatable to sports fans and goes into depth about what makes the DNA of an elite athlete different from anyone else. It also explains the differences between an average athlete and a super-elite athlete and how to get to that top 0.01% of athletes in the world.
What is one business idea that you’re willing to give away to our readers?
I am going to write an eBook teaching sports betting for beginners. I think a simple eBook is a great way to promote almost anything. I also have a great new daily fantasy sports app I am developing. It’s going to disrupt the whole fantasy sports world.
Tell us something that’s true that almost nobody agrees with you on.
Most people think that to bet on sports, especially football, you have to bet the point spread. That’s nonsense and the reason most people lose. Even if you could pick fifty-nine percent right you lose because you pay a ten percent vig. Very few people can pick over sixty percent against the spread. I’m one of the few who can do it consistently and even I don’t recommend it. Other people think betting against the line makes you a real sport better, no it usually makes you a real dummy. The money line is the way to go.
