MEXICAN The second of KSI’s two boxing opponents on Saturday night is scheduled to be Luis Alcaraz Pineda.
YouTube sensation KSI, formerly Olajide Olayinka Wil Olatunji (actually Olajide Olayinka Olatunji), is back after a three year absence.
In addition, he plans to make up the time lost by fighting twice in one day.
In the O2’s opening match, he will be facing Swarmz (actually Brandon Scott), a 25-year old rapper.
After that, he’ll fight Pineda (23 years old, unknown, brought in only on a short notice).
On August 27, 2022, both fights will take place at London’s O2 Arena. Alex Wassabi originally was supposed to fight KSI. But Wassabi pulled out due to a concussion. Ivan Nikolov was originally supposed to be KSI’s opponent in his follow-up bout with Swarmz, but KSI was forced to withdraw from the match as it became clear that Nikolov was a white supremacist Neo-Nazi.
Luis Alcaraz Pineda is who?
Pineda’s record is 2-5. He made his professional debut as a player in 2017 and lost, before going on the win two more times.

Luis Alcaraz Pineda leaks sparring footage
Jake Paul’s response to KSI’s New opponent
Jake Paul sent a tweet immediately after KSI had revealed his second opponent. Then, he deleted the tweet due to unknown reasons.
Jake stated in his tweet:
“The latest tomato can make his debut 143lbs. The fans deserve better.”
Jake’s tweet was mostly a backfire. Here are a few responses.
Why’s Jake talking on behalf of us? Luis is younger, has a better record, and is a pro boxer compared to all of Jake’s opponents. I’m happy with this and hopefully, we see a ko for jj
Jake Paul didn’t have the balls to do 2 fights in a day plus KSI has a professional fight, unlike Jake. Jake Paul is not allowed to discredit KSI.
Jake continues to try and fight MMA fighters. His fans deserve better.
Ivan Nikolov was replaced.
Ivan Nikolov was replaced by KSI for his weekend return to the ring. It was later discovered that he had been a white nationalist.
After more than 1000 days, the YouTube boxer will face two opposition in one match. He will face off against rapper Swarmz, who stepped in for the injured Alex Wassabi, and Luis Alcaraz Pineda, who will take Nikolov’s place.

When fans noticed a “White Power” tattoo on the fighter’s stomach, it raised questions about KSI’s decision to challenge Nikolov. Other white nationalist tattoos were also discovered, including one on his bicep that said “Blood & Honour,” the name of a neo-Nazi skinhead gang.
KSI interview with Ivan Nikolov, in his latest video
“He’s a white supremacist… Ivan isn’t my opponent anymore. He was removed. This was also the reason that the matchmaker got fired. But yes, my new opponent is Luis Alcarez Pineda.”
Nikolov’s reaction to the accusations?
Nikolov did respond to the claims on social media, writing: “I have recently seen news of a tattoo referencing ‘white power. This is a reference to my belief in my ability to be an athlete. It has nothing to do w/ an out-of date mindset.
Look out for Jake paul’s new battle with Mike Perry on October
Malki Kawa was Jorge Masvidal’s manager and had some views on Mike Perry calling out Jake Paul. He decided to Tweet them to the entire world.
When Perry challenged Paul to a boxing battle, Kawa questioned whether Paul would be on the “A” team.
“Would Jake Paul even be the A side in a fight with Mike Perry??? Mike just beat a real striker in boxing. Has more star power than the last 2 he’s tried to fight. Am I wrong?” wrote Malki Kawa.
After leaving the UFC, Perry’s career in combat sports has regained momentum.
In BKFC, “Platinum” has now won two straight battles. Perry won the second victory by splitting decision over Michael Page on August 20, in a six-round, bare-knuckle-boxing match.
In his post-fight interview, the 30-year-old called out the YouTuber-turned-boxer for a battle:
“Jake Paul, you need an opponent. It’s not enough to win the fight. I’m the real money fight. Maybe I’ll put the pillows back on if you’re too scared to get in [BKFC],” said Mike Perry.
Was Mike Perry successful in the UFC fights?
Mike Perry’s UFC journey was full of ups and downs.
In the $15 billion marketing, “Platinum” fought 15 times but only prevailed in seven of them.
During the time he was competing in UFC, notable American opponents included Vicente Luque (Vicente Luque), Vicente Luque (Alan Jouban), Donald Cerrone and Santiago Ponzinibbio. Jake Ellenberger was also a fighter.
Perry quit UFC in 2005 after he dropped four of five previous fights.
After his final battle against Rodriguez, “Platinum” revealed in an interview with Helen Yee that he had incorrectly believed he had one more fight left on his contract.
You know what, I won my fight against the contract. I made a mistake and forgot the news. After the Luque fight, I thought I’d signed a five-bout deal. My nose was broken. It was probably a four-bout contract. As I mentioned before, there was still one fight.
I guess I still had a headache or something, I don’t know what I was thinking. I thought going into the fight I had one more fight on my contract and then it turns out I didn’t, so I was a free agent there for a little while.” said Perry.
People’s reaction to KSI vs Luis Alcaraz Pineda’s battle
Michael Benson stated,
KSI now faces Luis Alcaraz Pineda (Mexican pro boxer, 5-5) and Swarmz. There will still be two fights that night. Following controversy surrounding his tattoos that allegedly had neoNazi messages, Ivan Nikolov is now the opponent.
Lord Ron stated,
KSI 2-5 Luis Alcaraz Pineda will be fought on August 27.

According to Dr. Shrike,
The guy is actually pretty good tho his fighting style is similar to Alex Wassabi’s but this was in an amateur fight and he has defo improved.
