Fight fans around the world are getting ready for the massive fight between British rapper and boxer KSI, who will be taking on Brazilian YouTuber FaZe Temper. This is a big moment for KSI as it’s not only the next fight in his professional career. He’s also giving his fans a more thrilling fight than what was originally planned.
Originally KSI was scheduled to fight MMA fighter Dillon Danis, but after Danis abruptly withdrew from the fight, KSI was left with no choice but to replace him. This turned out to be for the best when fans showed more excitement when it was announced that Faze Temper’s real name Thomas Oliveira would be filling in for Danis. Both men have been in the ring on a few separate occasions with KSI being 4-0-1 and Temper being 2-1. Besides the obvious difference, Temper does have a height and reach advanced over KSI, but he is still the underdog according to some bet sites which have KSI as the favorite -1250 and Temper +700
The fight will be this Saturday, January 14th at the OVO Arena in Wembley London. As for Predictions, I think if Temper wants any shot of winning it’ll have to be in the first or second round. KSI usually goes either all rounds or wins sometime after the halfway point. With him having much more experience professionally I don’t think it would be a good idea for Temper to drag the fight out past the 3rd round if he was looking to win by either KO or TKO. If he’s able to endure and make it all six rounds then it’ll be up to the judges.
The event is scheduled to start at about 2 pm ET, with main event ring walks coming a few hours later at about 5 pm ET.
