The spiritual home of British boxing will have seen nothing like it before when it hosts the extraordinary MF & DAZN: X Series for the first time next month.
And headlining the epic X Series 011 at London’s historic York Hall on Friday, November 17, will be British gaming star Jarvis in a battle with crossover boxing hero BDave.
Jarvis goes straight into top billing on his Misfits Boxing debut, live and exclusive on DAZN, but boisterous BDave is a household name in the crossover space and has been a pioneer in tag team and survivor tag boxing matches.
The Misfits Boxing welterweight title is the prize for the winner.
In the co-main event, Brazil’s fitness influencer Jully Poca takes on the self-styled anti-pop princess Alaena Vampira, with the Misfits Boxing Women’s Cruiserweight title on the line.
A mouth-watering clash of in-form and unbeaten fighters heads up the rest of the undercard, with Gabriel Silva – the son of UFC legend Anderson – and OJ Rosé meeting in London, both fresh from spectacular stoppage wins at X Series 009 recently.
Another star from the 009 bonanza in Newcastle was heavyweight Armz Korleone, a gym-mate and friend of KSI, who was drafted in as a mystery opponent just days before the event.
Armz’s first-round hammering of Master Oogway stole the show and this time he goes toe-to-toe with a familiar face to X Series fans, the larger-than-life Minikon, in a heavyweight rematch.
One of the X Series’ most memorable American rivalries comes to British shores next month when Uncle Pizza and YuddyGang TV run it back after their tear-up in New Orleans earlier in the year.
Will Uncle Pizza slice through his rival again, or can YuddyGang make it a video nasty for his adversary?
It’ll be no joke when British comedian Dapper Laughs stands up against TikTok star and football coach Simple Simon, before publican Adam Brooks sees if he can hang tough with former Gladiators’ icon Rhino.
Jarvis said: “I’m not here to play games, I am here to takeover and become the new face of the X Series.
“BDave is making a terrible mistake in stepping out of his tag team comfort zone and back into one-on-one combat.
“It’s just me and him on November 17 and, mark my words, it will all be over very quickly.
“I’m ready for anyone!”
BDave said: “Jarvis is in for a rude awakening when he steps foot into the X Series ring for the first time.
“He might think this will be an easy night’s work, but the Misfits fans know all about me and what I bring to the table.
“This is a huge opportunity for me, and to become MFB welterweight champion, would be an honour, and so I am not prepared to let Jarvis get in the way of that.”
Mams Taylor, Co-President of Misfits Boxing said: “Everyone is still buzzing after the historic Prime Card in Manchester, but the X Series refuses to rest on its laurels and we’re back, on November 17, with another big-punching card.
“Jarvis is determined to make a splash on his X Series debut, and he goes straight into the headline slot in a seriously tasty fight with the brilliant BDave, in a collision for the Misfits Boxing welterweight title.
“But the undercard is overflowing with fights that could all steal the show!
“From Jully Poca and Alaena Vampira’s title clash, to the battle of the big punching Gabriel Silva and OJ Rosé, to a couple of red-hot rematches – and everything in between – this is a night not to be missed.”
Kalle Sauerland, Co-President of Misfits Boxing said: “We’re thrilled to be bringing our first X Series event to the world-famous York Hall.
“The iconic East London venue has staged so many memorable fights, and nights, throughout its illustrious history as the spiritual home of British boxing, and we can’t wait to add the first Misfits Boxing chapter to the story.
“We’re coming off the back of the global smash that was the Prime Card, in front of 20,000 fans in Manchester, but the atmosphere inside this intimate venue could be equally as electric. When York Hall is packed to the rafters, there is no place like it.”
