It’s no longer good enough to be a celebrity boxer these days, you now have to up the ante to keep fickle fight fans from tuning out. That’s why Olajide Olayinka Williams “JJ” Olatunji — better know by his Internet handle “KSI” — will be boxing two opponents in one night.
He opens the DAZN pay-per-view (PPV) lineup against rapper “Swarmz” and closes the show opposite middling Mexican boxer Luis Alcaraz Pineda. That’s assuming KSI doesn’t suffer any injuries during his first fight that would prevent him from returning later in the night.
The action takes place this Sat. (Aug. 27) at the sold-out (yes, really) O2 Arena in London, England (watch the PPV here). Main card bouts get underway around 2 p.m. ET (7 p.m. BST) with KSI and Swarmz making their way to the ring around 5:15 p.m. ET (10:15 p.m. BST).
Here’s the complete KSI fight card and lineup:
- KSI vs. Swarmz
- FaZe Temperrr vs. Slim Albaher
- Deji vs. Fousey
- King Kenny vs. FaZe Sensei
- Salt Papi vs. Andy Warski
- Deen the Great vs. Evil Hero
- Sam Hyde vs. IAmThmpsn
- KSI vs. Luis Alcaraz Pineda
Fellow celebrity boxer Jake Paul remains unimpressed.
This can’t be real?
Each “fight” is 3 rounds? And he gets a 3hr break in between! Hahahahaha.
It’s way easier than one 6 round fight.
KSI & Minions Boxing doing the fans dirty with this fake shit. Mislead after mislead.
