KSI vs. FaZe Temperrr live fight updates, results, highlights from ...
Securing a long-term teal with DAZN, KSI’s Misfits Boxing is ready to take over the combat sports world. The possibilities are endless for the YouTuber, who could face off against the likes of Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley.
First, he'll look to get past FaZe Temperrr on the MF & DAZN: X Series card at Wembley Arena in London – and you can keep up with all of the action live here.
Temperrr replaces MMA fighter Dillon Danis, who backed out of the bout after he was, according to promoter Mams Taylor, “underprepared.”

9.47 p.m. GMT: You imagine there might be plenty of interesting subjects with whom master interviewer Louis Theroux could chat tonight.
He's just watched Slim head into the ring to the tune of Backstreet Boys' 'I want it that Way', accompanied by two breakdancers. Yorkshireman Zanetti grimaces at him and offers a few words of intended intimidation as the pair are given their final instructions. We're almost ready for the opening bell of the cheap support fight!

9.35 p.m. GMT: On that evidence, Papi would give fellow rookie Jake Paul much more a fight than Logan Paul did Floyd Mayweather.
The elder Paul brother has immediately backed the chances of his sibling meeting tonight's winner.

9.21 p.m. GMT: Salt Papi knocks out Josh Brueckner!
A straight left, bang on the button, ends it for Papi in round two, with Brueckner, who always looked unlikely to return to his feet from that thunderbolt, being counted out!
"He was too slow," says the Filipino. "I want to fight Jake Paul. If KSI doesn't want to fight Jake Paul, please send me to Jake Paul and I'll fight him." Slim - readying himself to fight Tom Zanetti next on the card tonight - or King Kenny are his more likely opponents in the near future.

9.15 p.m. GMT: This cruiserweight contest kicks off in intriguing fashion: the ripped Brueckner is on his toes but cannot get within range of Papi, the self-proclaimed "smoothest" boxer on the bill.
In the final minute of the round, Papi unleashes a slick, rapid combination, shaking Brueckner up with a flurry of blows as he storms forward. The crowd respond, and Papi finishes with some showboating, summoning Brueckner forward.
You'd pick Papi as the stylist on that round. If it's a tactical battle, he looks a sure bet.
9.10 p.m. GMT: British footballing cult hero Adebayo Akinfenwa - whose catchphrase is 'Beast Mode' and is one of the largest players ever to have taken to the pitch professionally - is the ring announcer for Salt Papi against Josh Brueckner!
When he was at AFC Wimbledon, Akinfenwa once scored a penalty across the road at Wembley Stadium in a playoff final to help his club secure promotion to the third tier of English football.
The beloved striker engages in a call-and-respond round with the crowd. "When I say Beast Mode, you say on," he beckons. Stirring stuff.

8.55 p.m. GMT: Luis Alcaraz Pineda beats BDave by unanimous decision!
Pineda raises his hands aloft after deservedly earning the decision, although he still looks as exhausted as a man who's just gone 15 rounds with a prime Muhammad Ali.
"I just want a clean fight and I'm ready to fight anyone I'm given," says the Mexican, who will surely have to put in the miles if he is to avoid gassing against tougher opponents.
An absolutely WILD first round ????

8.50 p.m. GMT: This has been a bewildering fight. Pineda clearly has the superior skills but BDave is full of heart and, in the third, a spent-looking Pineda, continuously drooling, goes down complaining about something.
Celebrity spot: British TV presenter Holly Willoughby is a prominent figure at ringside as the adversaries slug it out. She holds her hands to her lips as Pineda sinks to his knees at the final bell, knowing that he has almost certainly done enough to win on points this time.
8.45 p.m. GMT: Pineda gets busy on BDave, landing at will with heavy artillery. A hook nearly sends his opponent down. This is a far more menacing performance than he produced against KSI, although he gets drawn into a brawl and BDave sees out the round.
In the second, Pineda escapes a clinch and immediately floors BDave with a punishing right. The bell sounds in time to save him.
8.35 p.m. GMT: BDave enters the ring in red shorts to that backing track of modern boxing, Neil Diamond's 'Sweet Caroline'. It doesn't have quite the usual effect, but you can't blame him for going for the crowd-pleaser of choice these days.
The mystery boxer is... Luis Alcaraz Pineda, the 23-year-old pro boxer who lost to KSI in August! He brings to the ring a record of two wins and seven defeats. Here we go.
8.25 p.m. GMT: Want a surprise? BDave is about to leave his dressing room and still doesn't know who he's fighting. Nor do any of the pundits, because it's the mystery figure from earlier who entered this place with a towel over his head.
KSI's brother, Deji, has the answer but isn't going to reveal it. "I know who it is but I don't want to say who it is," says the former Floyd Mayweather opponent.
Asked about a scrap with Swarmz, he tells DAZN: "I would destroy him but I want him to have a good career in this boxing ring. It's been an amazing event with amazing fights so far."

8.15 p.m. GMT: Oh dear. Swarmz lands his first punch on Taylor and appears to have caused some serious damage to one of his opponent's eyes, possibly breaking his orbital bone.
"We're good to go," Taylor's team tell him as the referee sends him to his corner to be checked. "I've got pain in the back of my head," he replies. "What the f*** is this? I can't see out of my eye."
It's clearly not wise to carry on, as Taylor's entourage eventually concede. Swarmz celebrates and makes mention of the winning shot being "my f****** jab."
8.10 p.m. GMT: BMX stuntman Ryan Taylor heads towards the ring to the sound of Kelis' 'Millionaire'. Former KSI victim Swarmz is waiting for him in there.
Taylor has a tattoo reading 'Chase your Dreams' across his chest and has lost one and drawn one of his fights. That bout with KSI was Swarmz's only fight in his career so far.
This one's scheduled for three rounds.
8 p.m. GMT: Crikey. In a brutal, bloody fight, OnlyFans favourite Elle Brooke, whose most recent post to her Instagram following of more than 577,000 involved an extremely risque Santa outfit and a promise of "yellow snow", has battered Faith Ordway in the first round.
Ordway's following of more than a million eclipses Brooke's vast reach, but her face ended up a bloody mess as she decided to forego any discernible defence in an all-action fight in which she landed plenty of her own shots on her way to being knocked out. That takes Brooke to a perfect two-fight record!
7.50 p.m. GMT: In the first fight of the night, Idris Virgo cruised to a decision victory over Anthony Taylor, who produced a bit of a singsong when he was asked for a prediction earlier.
Unfortunately for Taylor, we wasn't on-song in the ring. Virgo decked him on numerous occasions, securing a 40-32 victory on all three scorecards.
???? An impressive introduction to the Misfits scene.
Who do you want @Idrisvirgo to fight next? ????

7.45 p.m. GMT: There's a great deal of excitement going on in the pre-fight coverage right now. A fighter is being led into the arena by hand by a minder with a towel over their heads.
The action has just cut to musician Big Zuu - 197,000 Instagram followers and counting - trying to get into the mystery combatant's dressing room, only to fail to bribe a bouncer to allow him entry in front of the cameras. All will be revealed at around 8.20 p.m GMT, apparently.

7 p.m. GMT: YouTuber Temperrr beat King Kenny in March 2022 via unanimous decision. The bout was initially called in favor of Kenny but was reversed following an appeal. In August, Temperrr lost to Slim Albaher via knockout, but he hit back to knock out Overtflow in November.
With more than two million YouTube subscribers, Temperrr believes boxing can be his true future.
6.45 p.m. GMT: KSI made his amateur boxing debut in 2018, beating Joe Weller, and went on to fight Logan Paul to a draw in August of that year at the Manchester Arena.
The two were elevated to the pro ranks, and KSI beat Paul via split decision inside the Staples Center. KSI returned to action in August 2022, beating Swarmz and Luis Alcaraz Pineda in one night.
Whenever KSI is in action, he is thinking about legacy. While talking about mental health in an interview with Men’s Health, KSI compared controlling one’s mind to controlling the ring.
“I go into warrior mode,” KSI stated. “If someone challenges me, it’s like, ‘You’re not going to take away anything I’ve worked hard for. My legacy is on the line. If you challenge my legacy, then you will get knocked out.”’
6.30 p.m. GMT: Tonight's stand-in co-headliner, FaZe Temperr, has talked up his new-found passion for pugilism. “I care more about boxing than posting content online,” Temperrr told MMA Fighting.
“It’s cool, but it’s not my passion anymore. It’s been a while that I don’t love creating content anymore, that I don’t have as much fun as I used to when I started. With boxing and fighting, that’s something I really have fun doing.”When is KSI vs. FaZe Temperrr?
