KSI faces millionaire nightclub tycoon-turned boxer Joe Fournier while Deji returns against rapper Swarmz.

The last time the Olatunji brothers boxed on the same night, they both walked away with wins.

But it came at the cost of stressing out their dad Jide so much that he will forfeit a ringside seat tomorrow night.

KSI, 29, told SunSport: “I don’t think my dad’s coming this time because it just stresses him out, man.

“And my mum, I think the last time she watched my bro win, she started breaking down crying.

“It’s a lot for her and it’s a lot for my dad, but we always reassure them.

“We always tell them we’ll work hard, train hard and we always try to make sure we get the W.”

KSI first boxed in 2018, beating online rival Joe Weller, 27, before drawing to Logan Paul, 28, in the same year.


But in his 2019 rematch with Paul, he won a split-decision in what was also his professional debut.

KSI would go on to have three years out of the ring to focus on a fledging music career before making a boxing comeback in August.

He won twice in one night – beating Swarmz and Mexican boxer Luis Pineda.

But the story of the night belonged to younger brother Deji, 26, who snapped a three-fight losing streak to win for the first time.

It provided a memorable night for KSI and his family, who cherished the moment in unity.

KSI revealed: “You saw what happened after Misfits 001, we were all celebrating, having the time of our lives.

“It was just an awesome moment, I was bouncing, jumping around just having the time of my life.

“For me and my family, we’re all very good, in a great space and the boxing, I feel like it unites us even more.

“We throw each other memes left, right and centre just to joke around but everyone’s in good spirits.

“My bro’s feeling good, my dad is – always nervous – but he’s also feeling good. My mum is also feeling nervous but excited to see what we do in the ring.”

Deji beat American influencer Fousey, 33, and then went on to face boxing legend Floyd Mayweather, 46, in an exhibition bout in November.

Meanwhile, KSI knocked out gamer Faze Temperrr, 29, in January and fears a repeat performance against Fournier, 40, will scare off future rivals.

He said: “It’s actually a good point, maybe I should stop winning so emphatically.

“Maybe I should just start winning through split-decisions and stuff like that!

“The way I knocked out Temperrr would terrify a lot of people to want to fight me.

“When I knock out Joe Fournier in spectacular fashion, more people are going to be like, ‘You know what, I think KSI it actually hat guy. Maybe it’s not worth fighting him, because I don’t wanna be a meme.'”
