KSI was returning to action for the first time since scoring a knockout win over Faze Temper in January. Prior to that victory, he had picked up stoppage victories over names such as Luis Alcaraz Pineda and Swarmz. In his professional debut against Logan Paul in November 2019, he defeated ‘The Maverick’ by split decision.

Meanwhile, Joe Fournier was expected to be the biggest test of the YouTuber’s career thus far. Sitting at a 9-0 professional record, he’s a former WBA International light-heavyweight champion. Fournier’s sole career loss was a decision defeat at the hands of David Haye in a September 2021 exhibition.

Tonight’s ‘KSI vs. Fournier’ boxing match resulted in a controversial knockout win for ‘The Nightmare’. KSI rocked Fournier with an overhand right and then proceeded to close out the contest with a short right hook. However, upon video review, it was revealed that the popular Youtuber actually hit Joe with an elbow to score the finish.

Despite that, KSI was awarded the second-round knockout victory.
