Swarmz vs Ryan Taylor fight report

Billed as the ‘Madman vs the Badman’, these two exciting British influencers clashed on the undercard of the Misfits x DAZN 004 event, headlined by Smarmz former opponent KSI, who takes on Faze Temper in London, England.

The two had shared a bit of fireworks in the build up, clashing on social media and in the build up to the fight, but showed a level of respect for one another, showing it was just business.

Both fighters enter the ring off the back of defeats, Smarmz to the events headliner KSI via a second round TKO, while Ryan Taylor lost via UD to the events co-main Slim.

Ryan entered the fight as the wide favourite in this fight, previously showing his toughness having went the distance with some of the biggest names in the scene in Slim, Anthony Taylor and DK money. While Swarmz comes into this fight with one full round under his belt, entering the ring with a record of 0-1.

The first bell rang, Swarmz coming out strong with a few fast jabs to the physical Ryan Taylor who almost wrestled his opponent. Swarmz hurt Ryan hard with a potential orbital bone break as he was rocked on his feet, leading the referee to call time on the fight for him to get medical help as Taylor repeatedly told his corner he can’t see and that he was in distressing pain.

The referee was then forced to call an end to the fight in the first round with Ryan Taylor unable to continue the fight, telling Ryan “if you can’t see, you can’t fight”, awarding Swarms the win with what looked like a jab.

Swarmz himself even doubted his victory as he could be heard saying “I only tapped him”.

It will be interesting to see where Swarmz goes from here after he beat a gritty tough fighter that no one expected him to win.

In a post fight interview, swarmz made it clear he was seeking redemption after his KSI defeat before calling out Deji and King Kenny.
