Who would ever have thought that the future of boxing lay in the hands of vloggers, gamers and TikTok stars? Well, here we are, about to see British YouTuber KSI host his fifth Misfits event in Telford this March.


Headlining the event is Jay Swingler vs Nicholai Perrett; a British prank YouTuber with an account weighing in at six million subscribers going up against TikTok sensation NichLmao.

While Perrett is an unknown in the ring, his opponent has a formidable boxing record. At Misfits Boxing 002 last October, Swingler knocked out American YouTuber Cherdleys just 50 seconds into the fight.

Speaking about his opponent ahead of the match, Swingler said: “Going to steam roll NichLmao hahaha. I'm ready to go tomorrow. Welcome to the UK you little rake, I'mma send you back home wrapped inside a Yorkshire Pudding."

Meanwhile, Perrett said: "I am super excited about this. All of a sudden I got a call, this YouTuber is from the UK and he's been boxing ever since 2018. When I got the call they were like 'Are you sure you want to take this fight? He's a lot bigger than you and he's been boxing for a long time.' I was like 'obviously'."

Misfits boxing was set up in 2021 by KSI alongside his management team Proper Loud, and agency Wasserman. Soon after, the events became partnered with global sports entertainment company DAZN, which now streams all boxing nights to its subscribers.

Their debut, MF & DAZN: X SERIES 001, took place in August last year with KSI facing Swarmz at the O2 arena. Since then, the bizarre crossover of online trolling meets physical aggression has proved a recipe for success, with each Misfits event drawing incredible crowds.
