KSI has revealed he’s taking on a second opponent on the same night of his highly-anticipated comeback match against Swarmz on August 27.
KSI dropped the news in an August 16 YouTube video, where he stated he’ll also be fighting against 43-year-old Bulgarian pro boxer Ivan Nikolov.
According to BoxRec, Nikolov’s pro record is 3-16-2. Nikolov is a middle-weight boxer — and one that KSI says will be the “most durable fighter that I’ve ever faced.”
KSI also claimed that he’d reached out to Bryce Hall, Vinnie Hacker, and even Tayler Holder as possible second opponents, but all either had conflicting schedules or “said no.”
