YouTuber-turned-boxer KSI will be facing not one, but two opponents later this month.
‘The Nightmare’ has been out of action since his decision victory over Logan Paul in November 2019. Since that outing, the 29-year-old has been busy working on creating music and focusing on his YouTube channel.
However, earlier this summer, the Brit announced his return to the ring. On August 27th, the YouTube star was set to face Alex Wassabi on DAZN pay-per-view. The latter was coming off a win over KSI’s brother, Deji, earlier this year.
The card set for the O2 Arena in London, England, took a hit earlier this month. Citing a concussion, Wassabi withdrew from the event. In response, Jake Paul stated that he would step up on short notice. The Watford-native declined, and the two eventually agreed on fighting next year at Wembley Stadium.
Replacing Alex Wassabi was former semi-professional soccer player, and rapper, Swarmz. However, earlier today on his YouTube channel, the star announced he wouldn’t be just fighting the rapper. Instead, he’ll be facing a professional boxer.
As he announced on his YouTube channel, KSI will be boxing Ivan Nikolov on August 27th. The bout with Swarmz will reportedly open the card, while the showdown with the Bulgarian pro will close the event. Nikolov comes into the contest sporting a 3-16-2 professional record.
“Yes, you heard that right ladies and gentlemen,” said KSI on his YouTube channel. “I, KSI, will be fighting two people, on August 27th. I mean, that alone should enough for you to want to buy the pay-per-view on DAZN. Two for the price of one ladies and gentlemen. I mean, are you not entertained? It’s never been done before in YouTube boxing.”
