KSI’s event defied the odds and was held last night. After Alex Wassabi pulled out, KSI had swapped him for a pro boxer Ivan Nikolov. After Nikolov’s ‘White power’ tattoo was unearthed he too was replaced by KSI’s rapper friend (and a complete novice in boxing) Swarmz, and a pro boxer with a shoddy record – Luis Alcaraz Pineda.
At the O2 Arena, KSI pulled off the double knock out in a mildly fun event.
KSI opened the show by brutally knocking out Swarmz in the second round. Swarmz survived the first round getting to keep his instagram account. The two had discussed previously that if Swarmz were to get smoked in round 1, he’d have to delete his account.

KSI completed his task later on during the event when he knocked Pineda down twice in the first round with powerful punches. The Mexican was continuously whining about what he believed to be illegal blows.
