KSI Turns Dublin into His Personal Circus Ring, Featuring a Doubles Match Against Slim and Anthony Taylor

07/01/2024 - No comments

On August 31, Dublin’s 3Arena is about to get turned into a chaotic circus, courtesy of KSI. He’s not just fighting one, but two people, Slim and Anthony Taylor, because apparently, normal fights are just too mainstream. It’s all live on DAZN, so you can witness the absurdity from the comfort of your own home.

Celebrating two years of Misfits Boxing, KSI is throwing a bash that’s less of a boxing event and more of a reality TV episode. Why settle for a regular fight when you can amp up the spectacle with a 2 vs 1 showdown? It’s clearly about the views and less about the sport.

The rest of the card reads like a who’s who of internet personalities pretending to be boxers. Deen The Great risks his MFB Lightweight Championship against local hero Fogarty, in a match that’s sure to fill the air with desperation for legitimacy. Danny Aarons and Beavo are set to duke it out too, probably trying to see who can convert internet followers into physical punches.

For those who relish a bit of chaos, the Cruiserweight Tournament promises just that, with DTG taking on Minikon, and Jake Cornish facing Mike Edwards in what we’re supposed to believe are serious quarter-final fights.

Local lad Ben Williams will try to whip the Dublin crowd into a frenzy, no doubt using the hometown advantage to stir up the noise. Sami Hamed steps out from the shadow of his father, Prince Naseem Hamed, to take on Jesse Clarke in a battle that’s likely more about lineage than skill. Gabriel Silva and Wedi will also throw down, in what could either be a technical showcase or just another brawl to fill the card.

So if your idea of a good night is watching a boxing influencer take on more than he can chew in a ring, while a bunch of other internet stars try their hands at boxing, Dublin’s the place to be. Just remember, it’s entertainment, not a pure sport event—expect a circus, not a classic.
