Obviously, KSI vs Tommy Fury is expected to close the show, with Logan Paul vs Dillon Danis serving as the co-headliner just before. Not only that, but the undercard fights and prelim bouts are just as exciting.
Starting with the prelims, reality TV star Chase DeMoor was taken down by Tempo Arts after being suspended for two years and fined $100k earlier this year for continuously punching a downed opponent on the Series 006 card.
The prelims also saw S-X take down fellow rapper DTG, while Swarmz stepped into the ring against TikTok star Ed Matthews, who notably faced off with rapper BlueFace back in April. Swarmz got swiftly K.O.ed in the matchup.
Meanwhile, fans finally saw Astrid Wett throw down with Alexia Grace for the Flyweight title, a fight that was long anticipated after Alexia hospitalized Astrid by slamming her through a table before their scheduled boxing match in July. Astrid got her revenge with a decisive victory via unanimous decision.
Moving onto the main card, Misfits hosted its third tag-team match, where Luis Pineda and Bdave stepped into the ring with Nichlmao and Alex Wassabi for an incredibly impressive draw. Following that, we saw Brazillian YouTube star Whindersson Nunes go toe-to-toe with MyMateNate after their Kingpyn Boxing debuts. Nate won by unanimous decision.
If the Prime Card wasn’t stacked enough already, King Kenny and Anthony Taylor will be battling it out for the Misfits light heavyweight championship. Not only that, but arguably one of the most anticipated fights in influencer boxing will be going ahead, as Salt Papi and Slim Albaher finally touched gloves. Slim came out the clear victor, pummeling Salt Papi into submission and forcing the match to be called by the ref.
Before we got to finally see Logan Paul vs. Dillon Danis and KSI vs. Tommy Fury, the most anticipated rematch got underway, as Deen The Great and Walid Sharks put their gloves back on. The two influencers first went blow-for-blow on Series 003, before the mastermind behind Misfits Mams Taylor forced them to put their differences aside and team up for a tag-team match on Series 008.
For the first big matchup of the night, it went 6 rounds and ultimately ended in chaos as Dillion Danis tried to grab Logan Paul. The match was ultimately called with Danis getting DQed, crowning Logan Paul the winner of the bout.
The only fight that remained was KSI vs. Tommy Fury. It was KSI’s long-awaited return to the ring, leaving many wondering if he could truly take down Tommy Fury.
Though there was criticism sent toward both fighters for clenching in the ring, Tommy Fury took home the win with a majority decision, before it was soon corrected to a unanimous decision. Though he may have lost, KSI was very, very close to winning, and has since appealed the “outrageous” decision.
Similarly, Dillon Danis has also sent an appeal for his disqualification to the PBA, the governing body that sanctioned the Prime Card bouts. It’s fair to say Logan Paul isn’t impressed with the move, slamming Danis as “embarrassing” and “desperate”
