KSI vs. Paul II
On November 9, 2019, a second match between KSI and Paul took place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, organized by Eddie Hearn. In contrast to their initial bout, this rematch was conducted as a professional fight, eliminating the use of headgear.

Two judges scored the bout 56–55 and 57–54 in favor of KSI, while a third judge scored it 56–55 in favor of Paul.
KSI vs Swarmz & Alcaraz Pineda
On July 1, 2022, it was officially revealed that KSI would be facing Alex Wassabi as the main event of the MF & DAZN: X Series 001 scheduled for August 27, 2022. However, a significant concussion led to a change in plans, and on August 6, it was announced that Swarmz would replace Wassabi. This event marked the debut of KSI’s promotion company, Misfits Boxing.
Later, on August 16, it was disclosed that KSI would be taking on a second opponent, transforming the event into a “2 Fights 1 Night” spectacle. Originally, the Bulgarian boxer Ivan Nikolov was set to be KSI’s second opponent, but he was withdrawn from the fight due to the discovery of multiple white supremacist and Neo-Nazi tattoos. Subsequently, on August 20, it was revealed that the Mexican professional boxer Luis Alcaraz Pineda would step in as KSI’s second opponent on August 27.
In the actual fights, KSI secured a victory over Swarmz with a second-round knockout, claiming the vacant MFB cruiserweight title. Subsequently, he faced and defeated Luis Alcaraz Pineda with a third-round knockout, successfully retaining his MFB cruiserweight title.
KSI vs Fury

Subsequently, on 30 July, it was disclosed that KSI would be pitted against professional boxer Tommy Fury for the MFB cruiserweight title.
Leading up to the bout, KSI found himself embroiled in a controversial exchange with John Fury, where a regrettable homophobic taunt was directed at him. Later, KSI expressed remorse and issued an apology, underscoring his dedication to learning from such lapses in judgment.
The match itself proved to be closely contested, marked by excessive clinching from both boxers. Ultimately, KSI suffered a defeat and lost the title through a unanimous decision. Initially announced as a majority decision, the error in Judge Rafael Ramos’ scorecard, incorrectly tallied to 57–57, was later rectified.
In the aftermath of Fury’s victory, a visibly angered KSI disrupted Fury’s post-fight interview in the ring, denouncing his loss as “outrageous” and alleging, “That is a robbery, bro. How many jabs did you land? Look at your face, look at your eyes. I’m the YouTuber; you are the boxer, so you have to win.” Additionally, he declared his intention to appeal the loss.
