KSI fight live stream and TV guide – how to watch Swarmz and Pineda bouts | The Sun

KSI is fighting this weekend, not once… but TWICE on the same night.

The YouTuber-turned-recording artist was last in the boxing ring in November 2019, when he defeated rival-turned-friend Logan Paul in their rematch.

This time around, he takes on rapper Swarmz and then pro boxer Luis Alcaraz Pineda in one night.

Pineda is from Mexico and has a 2-5 record.

KSI was originally set to fight rival Alex Wassabi, who beat his brother Deji back in March, but he pulled out with injury.

Deji also makes his boxing return on the undercard this weekend.

Why is KSI not fighting Ivan Nikolov?

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, 28, 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."
