DAZN and Misfits Boxing have revealed a deal for the MF & DAZN: X Series, which will see KSI fight exclusively on the channel for the next five years.

The Youtube star will bring ‘crossover drama and non-stop boxing action’ to global DAZN subscribers. 

KSI, who is also the CEO of Misfits Boxing, stated: “This is a massive agreement between everyone involved with Misfits Boxing, and I personally couldn’t be more excited for what this means for everyone moving forwards. 

“It just shows everyone is here to establish a long-serving crossover boxing promotion that aims to provide ultimate entertainment and somewhere the fans and fighters can call home. There’s no better way to celebrate this deal than with me fighting on 14 January and setting up a huge 2023. Misfits Boxing has arrived and is here to stay.”

The group has asserted that the series will feature the biggest global names in entertainment, sport, and lifestyle, and will be delivered to DAZN’s ‘best-in-class live production standards’.

“DAZN brings the very best in sport and entertainment to millions of customers worldwide. The MF&DAZN: X Series has quickly proved to be hugely popular, driving significant new audiences and engaging a new generation of sports fans,“ added Joe Markowski, CEO DAZN North America.

“We are extremely excited to be partnering with KSI, Wasserman Boxing, Mams Taylor and the entire Misfits team to build on this early success over the next five years.”

MF & DAZN X Series 004 sees KSI up against Faze Temper at OVO Arena Wembley in London this Saturday, which will be available via DAZN PPV in Australia, Canada, France, Netherlands, Mexico, New Zealand, Sweden, the UK, Ireland and the US.
