- KSI will fight undefeated pro boxer Joe Fournier at Wembley on Saturday night
- The undercard features one of the toughest bouts in influencer boxing
- Wings of Redemption and Boogie2988 have a combined weight of 800 pounds
An undercard fight for KSI’s clash with Joe Fournier has been labeled the “toughest in influencer boxing history.”
Wings of Redemption, 37, and Boogie 2988, 48, will fight a prep fight on Saturday and weighed 800 pounds combined.
They fight three three rounds, each lasting two minutes, on a map that also includes Salt Papi and DK Money.
Like KSI and his brother Deji, who also fights on Saturdays, Wings and Boogie rose to fame on YouTube through comedy skits and gaming videos before moving on to influencer boxing.
They faced each other on Thursday and traded insults, as Wings told Boogie he looked “extra chubby” and accused him of “not working out.”

The two YouTubers face each other over three two-minute rounds in a fight that Boogie hopes will “inspire people”
IFL TV posted the weigh-in on Twitter with the caption, “Possibly the toughest influencer boxing fight of all time.”
Boogie, whose real name is Steven Williams, has spoken about the journey that enabled him to take part in the fight.
He told the mirror“I told you five years ago that there was no way I could have left America. This fight would have cost my life, what could I have done once I got to London? Do you use a wheelchair to move from restaurant to restaurant?
“I think it’s a miracle I’m here, six years ago I had gastric bypass surgery and lost 200 pounds. I’ve also focused on my brain, I went to a psychedelic therapist earlier this year and I realized how wrong I was talking about life.
“I was also so scared and afraid of everything. I realized that the purpose of life is a game to be played to have fun and that’s what I’m doing here.’
The main event will see KSI take on undefeated pro Joe Fournier, who shared a ring with David Haye in 2021
He admitted that some viewers would make fun of the fight, but hoped the fight would also “inspire people” and promised to make it “as entertaining as possible.”
Saturday’s main event sees KSI take on undefeated pro Fournier in an exhibition match for the Misfits Cruiserweight title at Wembley Arena.
Fournier has not fought as a professional since April 2021 and was last in the ring or an exhibition match against David Haye in September of the same year, which he lost.
KSI’s brother will also take action against rapper Swarmz, who has used his music to call out Deji in the past.
