The Misfits Boxing series is all set for its first show of the new year on the heels of a long-term deal.

KSI and FaZe Temperrr both made weight for their scheduled six-round bout atop MF+DAZN: X Series 004 at OVO Arena Wembley in London, England (Saturday, DAZN Pay-Per-View, $39.99). KSI tipped the scales at a shredded 175 pounds. Temperrr weighed 175.9 pounds after accepting the fight on less than two weeks’ notice, replacing Dillon Danis who apparently forgot to train for the fight that was announced nearly two months ago.

KSI (real name Olajide William “JJ” Olatunji) was last seen on this circuit—which he created through his Misfits Boxing company—beating two men on the same night. The English renaissance man—a boxer, rapper, promoter and entrepreneur—scored knockout wins over rapper Swarmz and actual boxer Luis Pineda. Both fights came as part of the inaugural MF+DAZN: X Series show at The O2 in London. The bouts were his first since his celebrated split decision win over Logan Paul in November 2019, a show which permanently expanded the audience for YouTube boxing.

Temperrr (real name Thomas Oliveira) fights for the fourth time on the YouTube boxing circuit.

The 6'4" southpaw from Los Angeles via Sao Paulo, Brazil began his journey with a five-round decision over King Kenny last March 22 at this very arena. The co-founder, CEO and owner of popular gaming group FaZe Clan appeared on X Series 001, where he suffered a second-round knockout versus Slim Albaher.

Temperrr bounced back with a highlight reel first-round knockout of Overtflow on X Series 003 last November 19 in Austin, Texas. He enters Saturday's fight under the tutelage of Malik Scott, a heavyweight gatekeeper during his heyday who currently trains former WBC heavyweight titlist Deontay Wilder.

Below are the weights for the full undercard.

Slim Albaher, Brooklyn, New York, 169.8 pounds vs. Tom Zanetti, Leeds, England 175 pounds—4 rounds

Salt Papi, London, 182 pounds vs. Josh Brueckner, (2-0, 1KO), Arizona, 184.9 pounds—4 rounds, cruiserweight

Mystery Opponent, mystery location, 167 pounds vs. Crab Daddy BDave, Long Beach, California, 168 pounds—4 rounds, super middleweight

Ryan Taylor, Dubai via Walsall, UK, 185.4 pounds vs. Swarmz, London, 183.9 pounds—4 rounds

Faith Ordway, Los Angeles, California, 138.5 pounds vs. Elle Brooke, Portsmouth, UK, 137 pounds—4 rounds, junior welterweight

Anthony Taylor (2-3, 1KO), Long Beach, California, 174.2 pounds vs. Idris Virgo, Birmingham, UK, 174 pounds—4 rounds, light heavyweight
