KSI returns against Anthony Taylor, Slim in 1 vs. 2 Misfits boxing match on Aug. 31

KSI is getting back into the ring after his loss to Tommy Fury.

Misfits Boxing announced Sunday that the 31-year-old English influencer is officially set to face Slim Albaher and MMA veteran Anthony Taylor in a 1 vs. 2 “tag-team” boxing match, which headlines Misfits Boxing 17 on Aug. 31 at the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland.

KSI previously challenged Albaher and Taylor to the bout in a YouTube video earlier this month, and both men accepted.

“I can’t tell you how pleased I am that both Slim and Anthony Taylor accepted this challenge, because I wasn’t sure they had the minerals to do so,” KSI said in a statement.

“Both of these guys have been on my case for years and now, on August 31 in Dublin, they are set to get what they asked for.”

KSI, whose real name is Olajide Olayinka Williams Olatunji, has not competed since suffering his first professional boxing loss in a Oct. 2023 decision against Fury.

Albaher is unbeaten in influencer boxing bouts and most recently defeated Salt Papi via fourth-round knockout on the same Oct. 2023 card.

Taylor has fought to mixed results since transitioning from MMA but rides a two-fight win streak into the bout following victories over Salt Papi and King Kenny.
