KSI is moving on from Dillon Danis.

Shortly after news broke that Danis withdrew from his Jan. 14 boxing match with the KSI, the YouTube star’s promotion Misfits Boxing announced that he will now fight FaZe Temperrr of the world famous FaZe gaming clan.

The bout is scheduled to take place at Wembley Arena in London and airs live on DAZN.

On Wednesday, KSI’s manager Mams Taylor claimed that according to Danis’ team the Bellator fighter was forced to withdraw due to being “underprepared” and struggling with weight issues. Danis not fought since competing at a Bellator event in June 2019.

The KSI team was quick to announce his new opponent, a fellow social media star who has recently made the move to pro boxing. This past November, Temperrr scored a 30-second knockout of Twitch celebrity Overtflow at a Misfits Boxing event in Austin, Texas. He is now 1-1 in his brief fighting career.

KSI competes in his third pro bout after knocking out two opponents in one night this past August.
