Boxing: 10 Things You Need to Know about KSI's opponents - Swarmz and Pineda

Social media star KSI is back in the ring once again this weekend as the influencer boxing revolution continues, squaring up for two bouts on the same card against Luis Pineda and Swarmz.

The London-born YouTuber and rapper made his professional debut against Paul in 2019 and he earned a split decision victory at Staples Center in California.

He returns to action on Saturday with a double-header against Pineda and Swarmz at London's O2 Arena.
