However, the main event isn’t wasn’t the only thrilling match-up, as the stacked lineup of undercard fights are shaping up to be just as exciting. The full Series 007 card is as follows:

After going toe-to-toe with Mayweather, the Series 007 card will present Deji with the opportunity to continue his redemption arc, with the younger Olatunji brother stepping into the ring with Swarmz.
Salt Papi, who’s quickly become one of Misfit Boxing’s most anticipated fighters, also returned to the ring against Anthony ‘Pretty Boy’ Tayler in a narrow split decision fight that went Tayler’s way.

The Misfits 007 card also featured a few pre-show fights presented by Happy Punch. Veteran YouTubers Wings of Redemption and Boogie2988, who share a combined weight of over 800lb, went blow for blow in a short bout where Wings reigned supreme.
