KSI fight – UK start time, live stream, PPV price, TV channel and undercard for Swarmz and Luis Pineda fights TONIGHT

INTERNET sensation KSI makes his highly anticipated return to the boxing ring TONIGHT… and he’s fighting not once but TWICE.

The YouTube superstar’s original opponent Alex Wassabi had to pull out because of an injury sustained in his training camp, and instead he faces rapper Swarmz and then Mexican pro boxer Luis Alcaraz Pineda on the same night.

Wassabi wrote on Instagram to confirm he was pulling out: “With all these rumours going around, there’s only two things that are true.

“I’ve recently suffered a serious injury and I will be back very soon.

“You don’t play with concussions. New fight date announcement on the way.”

So KSI will face BOTH Swarmz and Pineda instead, and that’s despite Jake Paul’s calls for HIM to be chosen as the Brit’s next opponent.

Why is KSI not fighting Ivan Nikolov on Saturday?

Originally KSI was announced to fight pro boxer Ivan Nikolov as his boxing opponent in the secondary main event.

But Nikolov has since been pulled from the card and replaced by Pineda.

This is because Nikolov, 43, has been seen to have neo-Nazi tattoos, causing fan fury.

A “white power” tattoo is seen on his stomach and on his left forearm, Nikolov has a tattoo of the words “Blood & Honour”.

That is the name of a neo-Nazi skinhead group formed in England in the 1980s.

Also in between the words is a triskele symbol, a three-pointed swastika which was the logo for the group.

Nikolov also has a Schutzstaffel logo on his right arm, which was the police and military force of the Nazi Party, who pledged an oath of loyalty to Germany’s ex-dictator Adolf Hitler.

His neo-Nazi tattoos were pointed 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 Nikolov was replaced due to his tattoos.

He said: “He’s a white supremacist

“Ivan isn’t my opponent anymore. He has been removed.

“The matchmaker also got fired for allowing this to happen in the first place. But yes, my new opponent is Luis Alcaraz Pineda.”

What has been said?

“Just wanna say that at the end of the day, the one of the main goals of this first fight was to get rid of ring rust,” KSI said after the announcement.

“I wanted to prove to myself that I’m a better boxer than I’ve portrayed in the past. If you wanna see, fine.

“If not, fine. I’m still doing it anyway. There are still many good fights on this card that I’m excited to see.

“We are the only YouTube boxing event happening this summer.

“We’ve had many things try to disrupt this event but still we stand. This is a long term play, and I’ll happily take a small L now for a big W later.”

Jake Paul, however, has had a few things to say about the fight.

“KSI vs Swampz… Dod’t they have music together?” he wrote on Twitter.

“He’s fighting someone who has never fought before and that is his friend…

“This fight should for free.”
