Former EastEnders Star and Gladiator Mark Smith Enters the Boxing Ring on KSI’s Misfits Boxing Card

From TV Stardom to the Boxing Ring

Mark Smith, known for his roles as Rhino on the hit UK TV show Gladiator and his appearance on EastEnders, is embarking on a new career as a boxer. Tonight, he will be starring in Misfits Boxing, a card organized by KSI, where he will face off against GB News panellist Adam Brooks.

Not His First Choice

Smith had initially set his sights on fighting John Fury, the father of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury and ex-Love Island star Tommy Fury. However, this match-up was ruled out due to Smith's weight. Misfits' co-president Mams Taylor informed Smith that he was too heavy to fight John Fury, as the latter weighed 100 pounds more than him.

The Excitement of an Influencer Boxing Debut

Despite not getting his first choice opponent, Smith is still thrilled about his influencer boxing debut. In an interview with talkSPORT, he expressed his excitement for Misfits Boxing and the popularity of KSI among youngsters. Smith underwent significant weight loss to meet the requirements for his upcoming fight, dropping down to his lowest body weight in 37 years.

A Plan to Take on Brooks

Smith has a game plan to face Adam Brooks, who recently scored a 30-second knockout in a charity fight against Bachir Fakhouri. Regardless of Brooks' approach, whether it be an aggressive start or a more strategic boxing style, Smith claims to be prepared for any scenario. While he hasn't seen much footage of Brooks, Smith remains confident in his abilities.

The Main Card

Tonight's event, featuring Mark Smith's boxing debut, will kick off at 7pm.
