Today’s MF & DAZN: X Series 007 boxing event just concluded from the OVO Wembley Arena in London, England. The main card was crowned with YouTube sensation KSI (aka Olajide Olatunji) knocking out professional boxer Joe Fournier in the second round with an illegal elbow. The referee did not see the strike land, so the victory holds up. This was an exhibition, so I guess it’s not like it really matters.

This was a wicked elbow, that would have been a prime victory in MMA or Muay Thai. Olatunji remains (controversially) unbeaten in his prizefighting career, and will likely face Tommy Fury in the near future. Onward with these celebrity cards!

KSI came out hot! He went right after Fournier, applying pressure behind some heated exchanges. It was actually the YouTuber that was looking like the pro boxer out there. The second round came and KSI wobbled Fournier with a huge overhand right that dazed him. Then, an illegal elbow connected from KSI, and Fournier went down for the count.
