YouTuber and white-collar boxer KSI decided to go on Tinder as ‘The Boxing Champ’ in a prank video – and ended up having some hilarious encounters.

Since his boxing match with Logan Paul, KSI felt that he’d earned some newfound fame, and decided to take to the location-based dating app Tinder to test his luck in romance.

Of course, that meant creating a profile on the platform – which he had some fun creating.

KSI made sure to advertise his fighting prowess, posting pictures of himself clad in full boxing apparel.

He likewise included shots of himself standing on a balcony with a bottle of champagne in the background, stunting inside his home with wads of cash, a stand-alone of his belt, as well as kicking back reading a… rather interesting selection of literature.

After creating his bio, KSI copped Tinder Gold and saw nine likes – eight of them from men. As it happens, the YouTube boxing star had accidentally set his interests in the male species, rather than women.

He received some hilarious messages on the outset, to boot. One user, named Amy, simply sent a “:/” face, while a girl named Kirsty immediately questioned the validity of his fight with Logan Paul.

“A draw? Really?”

One man even asked if KSI would pass his number along to Logan Paul.

After wantonly swiping right on a series of profiles, he received a match from a name that his team had censored throughout the video. Presumably, this person was a man with an interest in KSI, who jokingly asked for the user’s number.

He called the person in question only to get hung up on. The individual revealed that he was married, much to KSI’s astonishment.

“Will call you soon, wife close by.”

The video ended with a teaser for a second installment, showing a phone call between KSI and the married Tinder user. While we have yet to learn of this person’s identity, fans can expect more drama in the second episode.

OWL star Matthew “Super” DeLisi has been added as a guest on the show for the second time, linking up with popular presenter Jimmy Fallon. 

The Overwatch League is full of shining personalities, but it’s safe to say that the captain of reigning back-to-back champions San Francisco Shock is one of the league’s boldest and brightest.

The 20-year-old main tank player has certainly won the hearts of OWL fans, not only because his plays are the definition of brilliance, but because in every interview he features in his enthusiasm for the game is infectious.

This is likely why Jimmy Fallon has elected to bring back the OWL star for the 26 October episode of the classic American talkshow, The Tonight Show.

This isn’t Super’s first time on The Tonight Show

Back in 2019 Super made his inaugural television appearance alongside former Overwatch flex player turned Valorant star Jay ‘Sinatraa’ Won. Both players provided America’s viewers with insight into how the esports world works, discussing their rigorous schedules and sharing how many hours they sink into the game.

Super’s guest appearance on the show coincided with the team’s 2019 victory over the Vancouver Titans in the OWL finals, therefore it makes a lot of sense that Super has been asked to return to the show following a dominant performance over Seoul Dynasty.

When to watch and why

It’s nice to see esports becoming more prominent in mainstream media, so it’s worth tuning in to support the growth of esports, as well as learn a little bit about Overwatch as well. Super certainly knows the game inside out.

You can tune in to watch The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon at 11:35pm ET on NBC on Monday, 26 October to see Super alongside superstars Sterling K. Brown and Zoe Lister-Jones.
