KSI makes light work of FaZe Temper inside Wembley Arena as money-spinning Jake Paul fight surely draws closer

KSI marked his return to the boxing ring with an emphatic win over fellow YouTube star FaZe Temperr.

The Brit defended the Misfits cruiserweight title once more by hitting a huge left hook within the opening 20 seconds of the first round to send Temperrr to the ground in front of a packed-out crowd inside the Wembley Arena.

Where KSI’s last two fights – which came in one night back in August – proved something of a joke, this was at least some sort of statement as the prospect of a money-spinning fight with Jake Paul looms.

While influencer boxing continues to draw critics, it’s increasingly difficult to ignore the intrigue. Like it or not, an offshoot of this kind provides a light-hearted distraction to some of the difficult moments the purer sport endured during an often arduous 2022.
