Headlining an explosive Misfits x DAZN 004 which involved his two previous opponents avenging their losses in electrifying fights, KSI geared up for his 6th fight when he took on Faze Temper.
Originally set to fight MMA fighter Dillon Danis, before the American pulled out the fight on 10 days notice, causing Temper to step up to fight the British celebrity sensation in what lined up to be an interesting clash, with this being KSI’s first southpaw in a fight where he surrenders a heavy height and reach advantage.
Faze Temper entered the ring with a record of 2-1, coming of the back of a flash KO victory over Overtflow in the first round, his only defeat coming to Slim on the first Misfits x DAZN card.
KSI come into this fight with a record of 4-0-1, with promises to end the fight in explosive style and head closer to the super showdown with Jake Paul.
Both men spoke a lot of confidence leading up to the fight, while respecting one another and their friendship out side of the ring, with KSI saying he will knock his opponent out, pick him up and shake his hand.
KSI’s confidence he carries with him, comes from a long history of hard work and constant wins as he enters this fight as the wide favourite over Temper, but an outsiders call has been made heard over the past few days of fight build up, don’t underestimate the 6ft 4 Brazilian.
Temper is a rangy, technical southpaw fighter who has demonstrated his skill and technique in the past, as well as his power with his first victory being a unanimous decision victory over King Kenny, an event laced in controversy as it was originally given to Kenny and he has demonstrated his power in his first round knockout over Overtflow.
The sold out London crowd was electric for the main event of card packed full with electric and explosions. In an event that had everything from shutout decision victories, to upset early knockouts. The British crowd was treated to a great night of boxing as they geared up for the main event.
Bell rang stop mark the start of the first of a scheduled 6 rounds, the crowd electric as they backed their countryman in KSI. The pace was set by KSI, running the centre of the ring, popping his jab, before they lock up after a KSI combination.
KSI erratic as he jumps in, his energy high and his pace intense as he hunts his opponent down who opts to lock in the clinch repeatedly.
Temper controls the range well, making KSI miss, while landing a few of his own, before locking into the clinch.
KSI then lands a thunderous left hand and landing with the right, dropping Temperr and ending the fight! Temper to his credit, tried to get back to his feet but it was too little too late as the referee calls the fight away.
It is all over, Jake Paul must be watching as KSI jumps to the corner, celebrating his win, possibly setting up for a mega showdown, late this year.
