Misfits Boxing returns on Saturday for its next event: MF & DAZN: X Series 007, featuring KSI vs. Joe Fournier as its headliner. 

KSI, real name Olajide Williams Olatunji, is coming off a first-round KO of FaZe Temperrr to retain his MF cruiserweight title this past January. The YouTuber-turned-boxer also holds wins against Swarmz and Luis Alcaraz Pineda, the latter of whom he knocked out to win the MF cruiserweight title. 

Fournier is 9-0, with all of his wins coming via (T)KO. Though he has not fought in two years, the ‘Badass Billionaire’ is being touted as the ‘toughest test’ for Olatunji thus far due to his professional experience. In his most recent appearance, Fournier lost a unanimous decision to former heavyweight champion David Haye in an exhibition bout.

Things got heated between KSI and Fournier during their first face-off, so perhaps we can expect similar shenanigans. You know how these things go.
