KSI vs Swarmz and Pineda LIVE!

KSI made influencer boxing history on Saturday night inside London’s O2 Arena.

The internet celebrity first beat rapper Swarmz early in the second round of his first fight with a routine KO, before returning to the ring to overcome Luis Alcaraz Pineda with perhaps even more ease.

Despite the Mexican having won two professional bouts, Pineda looked even more out of his depth than Swarmz, who at least showed some heart despite only lacing up a pair of gloves two weeks ago.

Frustratingly, the two worst opponents of the night were fed to KSI. Further down the card, Deji and Fousey put on a fantastic show, while King Kenny’s bout with FaZe Sensei came to a controversial end after a war on the inside.

23:08 , 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.
