Originally, HSTikkyTokky was set to headline the X Series 12 card for his boxing debut. The fitness influencer was expected to touch gloves with Tayo Ricci, although different fighters ended up stepping into the ring on January 20.

Instead, the main event featured Ed Matthews, whose opponent was a complete mystery until they did their ring walk. It was a Misfits fan-favorite getting back into the ring, as Luis Pineda was revealed as the mystery opponent — ultimately making light work of Matthews.

Besides the main event, AJ Bunker and Elle Brooke went blow-for-blow once again, this time with the Misfits female Middleweight Championship belt on the line after Bunker took the title home on X Series 009. However, a TKO in the third round landed Elle Brooke as the new titleholder

The X Series 012 card will also see the long-awaited match-up between Ashley Rak-Su and OJ Rose, both of whom are gunning for a big fight. But it appears we’ll be seeing them face off in a rematch in the near future, with their Series 012 bout ending in a draw.

It’s fair to say the rest of the card was rammed with action. 18-year-old Fox The G stunned fans in his debut, knocking Small Spartan Jay out cold with a clean left hook in the first round. Similarly, Tristan Hamm left Logan Paul lookalike Rodney Peterson slumped over the ropes with a KO in the first.
