What happened during KSI versus Joe Fournier?
Over the weekend, YouTuber KSI, competed in a unique boxing event against Fournier on a Misfit 007 card and won. The event was exciting, and fans were surprised to see another fight between two fellow YouTubers in the undercard, where they fought in an unrestricted weight class. Boogie2988 weighed in at 391.6 lbs, while his opponent, WingsOfRedemption, weighed in at 404.3 lbs. The fight between the two boxers, who weighed above 390 lbs, was not something people see every day.
Before the fight between Boogie2988 and WingsOfRedemption, JiDion was bizarrely asked to sing even though he's known for posting viral prank videos. His spirited rendition was met with raucuous booing. However, JiDion managed to see the funny side of things and shared a clip of his performance on social media while joking that people loved him.
