The rules for this match were as follows: Only two fighters will be allowed in the ring at a time, as it’s a “four-man fight to find the last man standing – it’s every man for himself.”

Once a boxer is defeated, the next fighter will be chosen clockwise from the corner of the eliminated opponent, and so on. Fans can read the full match rules here.

The two fighters to begin the survival tag match were decided by a vote on social media, where ultimately Swarmz and Ryan Johnston were first to touch gloves.

After all four fighters put in their heart, all giving it a good go in the ring, Nichlmao took the win after dealing a last-minute heavy blow to Ryan Johnston, rocking him in the process, just seconds before the final bell.

Series 008 also featured the second tag-team match we’ve seen on a Misfits card, as former opponents Deen the Great and Walid Sharks joined forces to face YuddyGangTV and Ayye Pap.

Surprisingly, Deen the Great and Walid Sharks managed to overcome their feud for a brief moment — taking the win via unanimous decision. Although their rivalry won’t be left in the past, as the two got into a bit of a scuffle after the fight ended despite their victory, putting a rematch on the cards.

Not only that, but Dexerto’s own James Sellers also touched gloves on the Series 008 card, taking on Brandon Herrera on just eight days’ notice. However, after tremendous effort, Sellers fell to the canvas in the third round, losing to Herrera by TKO.
