The latest crossover boxing event goes down this evening and we have all your live results for Misfits x DAZN Series 007 – KSI vs. Fournier. British Youtuber, businessman, ‘Prime’ owner and social media superstar turned professional boxer, KSI returns to the ring for the first time since January. His opponent will be a step up in competition since his January opponent as he takes on 9-0 professional boxer and businessman, Joe Fournier. The bout will be contested at cruiserweight live from the OVO Arena, Wembley.
In January, KSI defeated fellow Youtuber, FaZe Temperrr in a little over two minutes in a lacklustre affair. Fournier, on the other hand, hasn’t fought since 2017 in what officially was a no-contest, despite him winning the bout via knockout. Fournier has a history of failing drug tests as well as fighting when suspended.
Fournier is undoubtedly a step up in competition for The Nightmare, however, his record is certainly padded. He’s only once fought an opponent with a winning record and his last opponent was making his professional debut.
KSI is the younger, quicker and hungrier man, however, Fournier’s record would suggest that he’s more experienced and holds a lot of power. This one should be interesting.

Rest of the Card
There are only two other fights on the card featuring names that fans may be familiar with. The co-main event sees KSI’s brother, Deji return to action off the back of his Floyd Mayweather (yes, that Floyd Mayweather) fight. Although he lost that one via TKO in the sixth of eight rounds, prior to that fight, he picked up a big knockout victory over fellow influencer, FouseyTube. Deji will be taking on Swarmz, an English rapper who came to fame when he was one of the two men who KSI faced on the same night. He rebounded from the loss to KSI with a knockout victory over Ryan Taylor in January.
Elsewhere on the card, former Bellator MMA fighter, Anthony Taylor continues his wild career when he faces the hard-hitting Salt Papi. Taylor holds an MMA record of 7-5 and a boxing record of 3-6-2. He’s been a recognisable face in the world of crossover boxing in recent years. Salt Papi is 3-0 with two knockouts and seems to have a lot of skill at legitimate power. The winner of this one wants KSI next, so expect them both to put it all on the line.
