Read on for our KSI vs Swarmz prediction and explanation of the betting odds.
The London-born online sensation is scheduled to face rapper Swarmz before taking on Mexican professional fighter Luis Alcaraz Pineda. It's a first-of-its-kind double headline event featuring the same fighter.
The show comes from the O2 Arena in the North Greenwich area of London, a venue where some of boxing's most famous names have appeared, including David Haye. In this big fight preview, we bring you up to speed on the contests. Read our KSI vs Pineda prediction. You'll even find information on the latest KSI betting odds.
KSI vs Swarmz prediction:
KSI will fight Swarmz in his first bout of the night, and you can expect the ring walk for that to happen around 22:00 GMT. Get the best of the night's pugilism shown live on DAZN pay-per-view.
KSI has had just one professional boxing match in the past, beating Jake Paul on a split decision after six rounds at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. That experience will make all the difference. KSI informed fans the first bout was to get rid of ring rust and help bring him back up to speed. Pineda is a ‘proper' boxer, but Swarmz isn't here simply to make up the numbers.
The opening few rounds should be tentative as KSI feels his way into the contest under the pressure of having to keep some energy in the tank for his second bout. The latest KSI betting odds make him the hot favorite to win. We expect him to do that in style, scoring a KO/TKO victory that will leave him fresh for the main event.bet on boxing with Fanduel >>
KSI vs Luis Pineda prediction:
The KSI fight odds suggest this will be a much tougher test for the home boxer than the one before. The first fight has been jotted down as a warm-up for this bout but if it's more competitive than expected, with KSI made to work for his win, it could affect him in the second bout.
Backers may want to watch the first fight before making their KSI fight prediction on bout two. Doing so would give you the latest info on any injury news, the significance of the crowd, as well as a good look at the YouTuber in action. Remember, he is a novice boxer who hasn't fought since out-pointing a raw Jake Paul almost three years ago.
All the talk pre-bout has focused on his return. The KSI fight odds offered by major online bookies suggest he will enjoy a pair of quick-fire wins. But Pineda shouldn't be taken lightly, either by his opponent, the crowd, or those making their predictions.
The Mexican boxer has already lost five of seven fights – KO'd on four occasions – and has yet to score a stoppage win. The 23-year-old lost each of his last four and hasn't been winning seen since suffering a points defeat to Marcos Rios Gonzalez in March. Luis is experienced enough to take his opponent to a distance. He's being paid well, and that should eat up a lot of his ambition.bet on boxing with Draftkings
