KSI vs FaZe Temperrr LIVE! Boxing result, latest updates and reaction after KO win for KSI

KSI vs FaZe Temperrr LIVE!

KSI headlined another huge Misfits Boxing event at London’s Wembley Arena on Saturday night and made light work of FaZe Temperrr. Making his return to the ring after winning two fights in one night back in August, the Brit turned on the style to claim an emphatic stoppage win over the Brazilian within 20 seconds of the first round as he moved closer to an epic showdown with Jake Paul.

Undoubtedly the fight of the night saw Slim edge a total brawl ahead of Tom Zanetti. That was before Salt Papi pulled off a major shock with a huge shot to knock the much bigger Josh Brueckner down for a stoppage. Luis Alcaraz Pineda, beaten by KSI in August, returned as the mystery opponent to beat BDave.

It was the Sidemen vs FaZe Clan, with KSI’s MF cruiserweight title on the line on what was an exciting evening in the capital. Brazilian FaZe Temperrr was originally supposed to be on the undercard, but stepped up after MMA fighter Dillon Danis withdrew earlier this month stating that he was “underprepared”.

KSI targets Fournier, Woodley and Slim before Jake Paul

11:04 , George Flood

KSI acknowledges that he needs more tune-up fights before getting in the ring with Jake Paul.

After his emphatic early knockout of FaZe Temperrr last night, he namechecked Joe Fournier, ex-UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley and Slim as potential opponents between now and then.

“I need to be tested. I need more tests until I reach the final hurdle, Jake motherf****** Paul,” he said.

“That’s the end game ladies and gentlemen, I said I wanted him at the end of the year and I will get him, trust.

“But, before I get to that, Joe Fournier, Woodley, Slim, whoever it is, I’m going to destroy them.”

Jake Paul mocks KSI: ‘I’m shivering with fear'

09:23 , George Flood

“I love when KSI wins because it gives him more confidence for him to actually get in the ring with me,” Jake Paul tweeted after KSI’s stunning first-round knockout last night.

A video tweeted by brother Logan then showed that the American is not exactly quaking in his boots at the thought of an epic clash with his fellow internet sensation.

“I’m quivering with fear,” he says mockingly in a video responding to the challenge.

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

Saturday 14 January 2023 23:07 , Jonathan Gorrie

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.

Still, given the farcical nature of his last two fights, that could be a big ask.

Mayweather stops Deji on farcical night after Fury and Paul clash

Saturday 14 January 2023 18:04 , Jonathan Gorrie

A look at how KSI’s brother got on recently...

Floyd Mayweather stopped Deji in the sixth round of their exhibition bout in Dubai, at the end of a chaotic and somewhat farcical night.

Having only fought YouTubers before, and winning his first fight in August after three amateur defeats, Deji took to the ring against one of the sport’s greats, as Mayweather continued his run of exhibitions.

The 45-year-old toyed with Deji for much of the first five rounds, spending most of the time arguing with his opponents’ corner. That was particularly the case after Mayweather was warned for a number of low blows, perhaps an irritated response after Deji landed a shot that marked up the American’s eye.

Mayweather, who spent the time in between the early rounds parading around the ring and doing pad work, had his corner work on his eye ahead of the sixth round, while he looked around and saw Deji doing press-ups.

KSI sends message to Fury and Paul after double KO victory

Saturday 14 January 2023 17:53 , Jonathan Gorrie

KSI marked his return to the boxing ring with a double KO victory over Swarmz and Luis Alcaraz Pineda.

The internet celebrity had not fought since outpointing Logan Paul over a thousand days ago and marked his comeback with two routine wins inside London’s O2 Arena.

Rapper Swarmz was the first to fall, doing so in the second round after an evasive first. While many will point to the uncompetitive nature of the bout, the 25-year-old’s corner were keen to stress Swarmz had only two weeks to prepare for the fight, having never laced up a pair of gloves before.

Beating Pineda, however, was supposed to add a level of authenticity. The Mexican is a professional fighter with two wins to his name after all, though proved little match for KSI and rarely looked interested before being stopped in the third and final round.

As was expected, attention then turned on what’s to come. While Jake Paul was described by KSI himself as the “main goal”, the idea of meeting Tommy Fury was raised a more imminent prospect.

An entertaining night at the 02, with all-but one of the fights ending in a knockout. KSI’s brother Deji claimed his first win by beating Fousey, while King Kenny’s controversial win over FaZe Sensei came after an interesting war on the inside.

Influencer boxing might have its critics – KSI’s two fights being the prime examples - and they are hard to ignore, although it is equally difficult to write off the intrigue.

Jake Paul confirms MMA move and issues two-fight Nate Diaz challenge

Saturday 14 January 2023 17:40 , Jonathan Gorrie

Jake Paul is set to make his debut in mixed martial arts (MMA) this year after signing with a key promotional rival of the UFC.

The YouTube-star-turned-fighter has announced that he has joined the fast-growing Professional Fighters League (PFL) to compete in a new pay-per-view division to be called “Super Fight”.

Paul - who has long been an outspoken critic of fighter pay in the UFC - will officially be called the “head of fighter advocacy”, promoting the PFL and its fighters and pledging that competitors in the new division will receive 50 per cent of the revenue generated as well as being free to pursue their own sponsorship deals.

What is Prime and why is Logan Paul and KSI’s drink so expensive?

Saturday 14 January 2023 17:33 , Jonathan Gorrie

Prime hydration drink is reportedly being sold at a Wakefield off-licence for £100 a bottle.

The drink has been so popular, particularly with children and teenagers, that it is being sold for 10 times its retail price on eBay – but that’s nowhere near the price that Wakey Wines claims it is selling it for.

The drink has been hyped up since it was first made available in Asda: to prevent customers from buying bottles with the intention to resell them at astronomically high prices, Asda set a limit on the product to three per person.

KSI reveals shock FIGHT challenge from Wayne Rooney

Saturday 14 January 2023 17:30 , Jonathan Gorrie

KSI has revealed an unlikely fight challenge from Wayne Rooney.

KSI insists he promptly turned down the offer before revealing another ex-England footballer apparently interested in joining the fast-growing YouTube boxing scene.

“I hope he doesn’t get annoyed that I said this, but Wayne Rooney hit me up being like ‘oh, we should fight’, and I said no. I just don’t want to do that,” he said.

“If Wayne Rooney is down of course I think it would be good to have him in the space. I know Wayne Bridge is another person that’s been interested in the space.”
