Youtube Star KSI returns to the boxing ring for two fights in one night to face fellow rapper Swarmz and Mexican boxer Luis Alcaraz Pineda in a Dazn PPV on August 27, 2022.
Billed as “KSI: 2 Fights, 1 Night” or “MF & Dazn: X-Series 001”, the card will feature several celebrities on the undercard.
KSI returns to the boxing ring for the first time at this event since defeating Logan Paul back in November 2019. He was announced to face Alex Wassabi earlier, but Wassabi pulled out due to a concussion. KSI’s friend and rapper Swarmz was then announced as Wassabi’s replacement. This will be Swarmz’s first ever boxing bout.
Later, KSI announced that he will face two fighters in one night and that the other boxer will be a professional fighter. Ivan Nikolov was announced as KSI’s other professional opponent. After a backlash against Nikolov due to his white supremacist Neo-Nazi background, Luis Alcaraz Pineda was brought in as the replacement. Pineda has a record of 2-5 in 7 professional bouts.
