KSI Vs Fournier Misfits 007 Overview KSI headlines a stacked card in London on May 13th
Bellsy Vs Kymchii
Bellsy Vs Kymchii will be the opening bout of the KSI vs Fournier PPV card. This bout seems to be going under the radar among fans due to the other huge fights on the card, but it could end up being a great fight since both fighters dislike each other and have shown so after getting physical at the open workout during the fight week. Bellsy is an Australian influencer who has previously fought in influencer boxing and won via unanimous decision. Kymchii on the other hand has not fought before and this will be her first time under the lights.
Thresh vs Paigey
Tennessee Thresh Vs Paigey will be the second bout of the night and will be fought at Lightweight. This fight came around after the two were on a podcast together which ended up causing drama between the two online and spilt over enough to make them want to settle it in the ring. Although, there is still a level of respect there since both fighters did a handshake at the open workout, which is sometimes quite rare in influencer boxing.
Viruzz Vs DK Money
Viruzz Vs DK Money will be fought at cruiserweight which is one of the most popular divisions in influencer boxing, meaning there are plenty of options out there for the winner and even the loser. Viruzz is currently 1-1 in Influencer Boxing, with the win being by way of Technical knockout. DK Money on the other hand is 1-2 in Influencer Boxing, with his only win being an automatic disqualification win after Ryan Taylor knocked him out with a headbutt on the Deji vs Wassabi undercard last year. He has also fought King Kenny in which he suffered a first-round KO defeat.
Salt-Papi Vs Anthony Taylor
In the first of the three major bouts of the night on KSI vs Fournier Misfits 007, up-and-coming Influencer Boxing star Salt-Papi takes on tough and durable Anthony Taylor. This bout had huge fan support when announced since it was a highly requested fight. Although since then it has been revealed that the bout will be fought at three two-minute rounds instead of four three-minute rounds which is what fans were expecting with such a high-level fight in the scene. Despite this, both fighters have promised that the fight will be the fight of the night, and it very well could be with their clash of styles.

Deji Vs Swarmz
The co-main event of KSI vs Fournier will see the return of Deji to Misfits after his loss to Floyd Mayweather. Deji got his first win in Influencer Boxing ever when he fought Fousey and scored a TKO win on the first-ever Misfits show. But this time he will be facing a previous opponent of KSI’s in Swarmz.
Swarmz, since his debut in Influencer Boxing against KSI on Misfits 001 has seen a huge body transformation. He also picked up a win along the way against Ryan Taylor after stopping him in round one on Misfits 005. This bout will be fought at the Light Heavyweight limit, meaning the winner could be in contention for the Light Heavyweight Misfit title in their next fight.
KSI Vs Fournier
Finally, the main event of the night of Misfits 007, is KSI Vs Fournier. Fans learnt that KSI has had his sights on Joe Fournier for a while now after it was revealed he was one of the potential backup opponents for his fight against Dillon Danis. On top of that, he also had a brief face-off with Joe Fournier after his emphatic KO win over Faze Temperr. Joe Fournier has a pro boxing record of 9-0, and also once held the WBA international heavyweight title, making him the best British cruiserweight boxer in the WBA rankings for that time he held the belt. Although shortly after he stopped boxing which meant that was short-lived.
Fans can expect Fournier to bring a higher level of boxing skill and experience to the ring against KSI as opposed to his previous three opponents who were severely lacking in these areas. This could mean the fight may go to the later rounds if KSI finds it difficult to pin Fournier down and land those huge shots he likes to do to drop or KO opponents. Whereas Joe Fournier will be trying to counter KSI as he unloads his combinations on the inside while he is tucked up as he has done in many of his previous pro boxing bouts. Will you be tuning in to the KSI vs Fournier card this weekend?
