Nearly three years after defeating Logan Paul in his boxing debut (watch highlights), Olajide William “KSI” Olatunji returns to the boxing ring today (Sat., Aug. 27, 2022) inside The O2 Arena in London, England, for two fights in one night.
MMAmania.com will deliver LIVE coverage of both DAZN-streamed bouts below, as well as quick results for the rest of the card. Olatunji opens the main card at approximately 2:10 p.m. ET, then closes it around 5 p.m. ET.
The first, which gives the card its name, pits Olatunji against rapper Brandon “Swarmz” Scott — who stepped in for the injured Alex Wassabi — for three, three-minute rounds. The second sees him fight Mexican journeyman, Luis Pineda — who got the call when Ivan Novikov turned out to have a giant “WHITE POWER” tattoo, a Waffen SS on his shoulder and more — about three hours later.
A full suite of influencers square off in the interim, including two members of FaZe Clan and comedian-turned Daily Stormer donor, Sam Hyde.

200 lbs.: KSI vs. Swarmz
Round one: KSI looking to jab. Swarmz stumbles back after eating a right cross, then another. He tries an overhand that looks more like a failed high-five. This is going to get ugly very quickly if KSI doesn’t decide to play with him. Another staight right as Swarmz stumbling back. 1-1-overhand from Swarmz. KSI fires a combo on the ropes as Swarmz covers up and flees, earning a warning from the ref for turning his back. 1-2 to the body from KSI halfway through. Swarmz basically just running away. KSI swarming Swarmz on the ropes and drops him with a left hook. Swarmz keeps spinning around as he sprints away. Big overhand from KSI. Swarmz just running away and spinning around. He spins so much he falls down and the ref continues to admonish him. 10-8 KSI.
Round two: KSI continuing to chase, floors him with another left hook. Swarmz takes the count.
Final result: KSI def. Swarmz by KO
