It’s fair the say the Series 009 card was nothing but action-packed. Carla Jade and Tash Weekender opened up the prelims, where Jade ultimately got the better of her opponent. Going to the judge’s scorecards, Jade took the win via Unanimous decision.
Up next was Pully Arif, where he faced Small Spartan Jay in the ring. Going into the match, Arif was the favorite to take it, having a clear height and reach advantage over his opponent. However, the calisthenics world champion Jay came out on top with a controversial Split decision.
The Series 009 card saw a new Misfits champion crowned. With the women’s middleweight title on the line, AJ Bunker and Lil Bellsy took to the ring, where after four intense rounds we saw AJ take the belt home.
Kicking off the main card, Callum Izzard and OJ Rose were up first, and it was an explosive fight. In the third round, we saw OJ take the win via TKO.
Armz Korleone was unveiled as the mystery opponent for Master Oogway earlier in the week, and despite the short notice, he came out fully prepared. Within just seconds of the first round, Oogway was knocked to floor. However, the fight went on, with Oogway being knocked again and again until Armz finally got the TKO in the first round.
Stepping in the ring next was Gabriel Silva, the son of former UFC champion Anderson Silva, as he put on the gloves to face fight commentator Ben Davis. All the pressure was on Silva to live up to his family legacy, and he certainly did as he KO’d Davis in the first round.
Halal Ham made his long-awaited return to the ring on the Series 009 card, going toe-to-toe with Ashley Rak-Su. Both fighters had something to prove. Coming off the back of his “slugfest” bout with Ginty, Halal Ham was looking to redeem himself, whereas Ashley Rak-Su was aiming to prove himself worthy of a big fight.
In the end, it was Rak-Su who got the better of the two, where after a grueling three rounds he walked away with the win via Unanimous decision.
Ginty and FaZe Temperrr were up next as the co-main event, where both also looked to redeem themselves. In Ginty’s case, the 22-year-old was wanting to make up for his “slugest” fight with Ham earlier this year.
Meanwhile, Temperrr looked to redeem his name after losing to the hands of KSI at the start of 2023. Both fighters came out swinging, but it was the FaZe Clan founder who took the win via TKO after dropping Ginty to the canvas three times in the first round.
Moving onto the main event, Idris Virgo, a Love Island star and 13-fight unbeaten professional boxer, touched gloves with retired MMA fighter and reality TV star Aaron Chalmers as the headline fight.
The bout was set to be five rounds, but Idris only needed three until his opponent couldn’t continue. The home-ground advantage for Chalmers wasn’t enough. However, both fighters are keen to run it back before the Newcastle-born TV star retires from combat sports.
