🥊🎙️ Crossover boxing is back in London Town courtesy of Misfits Boxing with KSI vs Joe Fournier topping the bill on Saturday 13 May 2023 at OVO Arena. 🎟️ Tickets are on sale here.
Beefs were settled left, right and centre on a big night of action at the Misfits Boxing show in January. ‘Primal drama’ (the words of television presenter Louis Theroux, watching in the building) was to the fore for Slim Albaher v Tom Zanetti who went the full distance with Slim taking the decision on the judges cards. Headlining the show KSI beat FaZe Temper in the first round courtesy of an explosive knockout that took KSI one step closer to a fight with Jake Paul. Also victorious in north London were Salt Papi and Elle Brooke who defeated Josh Bruekner and Faith Ordway respectively.
YouTube star KSI is back tonight at the OVO Arena Wembley as he goes head-to-head with Joe Fournier in the main event of the Misfits Boxing X Series 007 show. Influencer boxing is on the rise and tonight Misfits Boxing are aiming to demonstrate why they are ahead of the game. The show is the latest in the DAZN X Series, which pits entertainers, athletes, and influencers against one another in the ring.
The stakes are higher than ever as KSI accepts his hardest challenge to date by taking on undefeated pro boxer Joe Fournier. KSI’s hugely anticipated return is set to be the highlight of the biggest and boldest crossover showdown of the year as the Misfits mayhem descends on London, for a night of off-the-wall entertainment.
KSI enters the ring in blistering form, having spectacularly KO’d Faze Temper in one round to claim the Misfits Cruiserweight title earlier this year, however, the ‘billionaire’ businessman Joe Fournier will provide the mega star with his toughest test yet. Fournier is 9-0 as a pro fighter, knocking all nine opponents out, and once went the distance with former heavyweight world champion David ‘Hayemaker’ Haye in an exhibition contest.
The famous OVO Arena Wembley will play host to this colossal contest as the Misfits Boxing World Tour lands in London – and both men are promising capital pains on the night.
KSI said: “I can’t wait to show the world what Jake Paul couldn’t, knock out a pro boxer. Each fight, people are seeing a better KSI and I’m honestly scared for Fournier because once I land my right or left hand on his chin, it’s night night. As soon as people enter the ring with me, they realise they are in hell. And they either leave the ring bruised, battered or sleeping. In the ring, I am an evil man.”
Joe Fournier said: “This is huge, it’s as big as it gets, it’s on DAZN pay-per-view at Wembley, against one of the biggest global superstars, not just in boxing. But I am going to break a lot of little hearts when they see KSI unconscious on the canvas. This is way too soon to fight me, but the deal is done, and just like Jake Paul, he will find out that when he gets into the ring with a real boxer, it’s a whole different ball game. He is in for a rude awakening.”
🔑 Doors open at 6pm.
🥊 Show starts at 7pm.
Tickets for Misfits Boxing are on sale via the ‘Get Tickets’ link.
