KSI fight live and TV guide – how to watch Swarmz and Luis Pineda fights
KSI FANS are in for a treat as the internet superstar doesn’t fight once…but twice TONIGHT in his highly anticipated return to boxing
The YouTuber-turned-recording-artist was last in the boxing ring in November 2019, when he beat rival-turned-friend Logan Paul in their rematch.
This time around, he takes on rapper Swarmz and then professional boxer Luis Alcaraz Pineda in one night.
Pineda comes from Mexico and is 2-5.
KSI was originally scheduled to fight rival Alex Wassabi, who beat his brother Deji in March, but he pulled out with an injury.

Why doesn’t KSI fight Ivan Nikolov?
Originally, KSI was announced to fight professional boxer Ivan Nikolov as a boxing opponent in the secondary main event.
But Nikolov has since been removed from the card and replaced by Pineda.
That’s because Nikolov, 43, was seen with neo-Nazi tattoos, causing fans to rage.
A “white power” tattoo is visible on his stomach and on his left forearm, Nikolov has a tattoo of the words “Blood & Honour”.
It is the name of a neo-Nazi skinhead group formed in England in the 1980s.
Between the words is also a triskelion symbol, a three-pointed swastika that was the band’s logo.
Nikolov also has a Schutzstaffel logo on his right arm, which was the police and military force of the Nazi Party, which took an oath of loyalty to former German dictator Adolf Hitler.
His neo-Nazi tattoos were singled out by one of his previous opponents, Daniel Blenda Dos Santos, who slammed the boxer after winning their fight in April.
Dos Santos said: “When I saw his tattoos, some of them racist in nature, I wanted to hurt him.”
KSI, 29, responded to the allegations on his YouTube channel and confirmed that Nikolov was replaced due to his tattoos.
He said, “He’s a white supremacist
“Ivan is no longer my opponent. He has been eliminated.
“The matchmaker was also fired for allowing this to happen in the first place. But yes, my new opponent is Luis Alcaraz Pineda.”
