The DAZN X-Series 002 competition was announced at an event hosted by popular YouTuber KSI. The competition will take place in Sheffield, UK on October 15th. KSI’s Misfits Boxing will promote the event.

As for Rahman, he’s been in the news after his previous showdown with Jake Paul was called off. Paul’s team claims Rahman can’t reach his contracted weight. That hunch was correct because Rahman weighed in the day before the race was supposed to take place and was 1.5 pounds over the limit.

Belfort is expected to collide with another boxing legend Oscar De La Hoya ahead of Holyfield bout. This will be the return of the “Golden Boy” fight, and it will be held under the Triller banner. De La Hoya contracted COVID and the game was canceled.

De La Hoya later admitted to Ariel Helwani that he felt he had “ducked away” and didn’t have to deal with “phenomenal.”
