Deji Olatunji will hope fourth time’s the charm as he returns to the ring on the undercard of brother KSI’s fight against Swarmz.
The YouTuber-turned-boxer is 0-3 in white collar bouts having previously lost fights to Jake Paul, Vinnie Hacker and Alex Wassabi last time out.
Deji showed defensive improvements in his latest defeat – and also anincreased cardio level– but was ultimately beaten in a split decision loss.
And the 25-year-old will be desperate to end his long wait to have his hand raised when he faces off against YouTube prankster Fousey.
