Press Release October 10, 2023 By DAZN - The biggest night in crossover boxing history lands in Manchester on Saturday, October 14 and features KSI vs Tommy Fury and Logan Paul vs Dillon Danis
DAZN to host Countdown Show followed by the main card live around the world, only on DAZN PPV
The biggest night ever seen in crossover boxing will have a heavyweight talent team to match, with stars from the world of sport, music and television all forming a part of DAZN’s exclusive worldwide coverage.
A sold-out AO Arena in Manchester plays host to a historic night of action as KSI clashes with Tommy Fury and Logan Paul goes into battle against Dillon Danis, exclusively live on DAZN PPV.
And DAZN’s coverage will deliver a knockout punch from the first bell until the last with several big-names involved, including Ariel Helwani, Chris Eubank Junior and Bugzy Malone, all taking to the mic, across two not-to-be-missed shows.
Big Zuu will be your larger-than-life host for the DAZN Boxing Countdown Show, which will be broadcast live on DAZN and Youtube in the hours leading up to the unmissable boxing double-header.
Zuu will be joined by co-host and reporter Roman Kemp, who will be bringing viewers a host of interviews with celebrities in attendance at this historic evening of crossover boxing action.
Zuhair Hassan, better known as Big Zuu, is an award-winning British chef, television personality and musician. A born-and-bred Londoner, Zuu began his career as a grime MC and BBC radio host, and has since become a regular face of the MF&DAZN X Series.
Roman Kemp, meanwhile, is one of the UK’s most promising broadcasters, hosting the Capital radio breakfast show, presenting the One Show and having hosted countless star-studded events including the TV Baftas and BRIT Award Red Carpet.
Zuu and Roman will be joined by no less than three studio guests on this unmissable Countdown Show.
The first is British rap icon, actor and entrepreneur Bugzy Malone, an avid boxer and fan of the sport since childhood. X Series fans will vividly remember Bugzy’s jaw-dropping ring walk with KSI at 007 in May, when ‘The Nightmare’ fought Joe Fournier in front of a packed Wembley Arena.
Joining Bugzy is Youtube star and crossover boxer Deji Olatunji who will share with fans a unique insight into how his brother, KSI, has been training for the biggest fight of his career to date.
Mike Majlak - best-selling author, YouTube star and co-host of the Impaulsive podcast with Logan Paul – will also make the journey to Manchester, taking viewers backstage inside the locker rooms of the biggest stars set to step foot in the ring on the night.
Completing the talent team for DAZN’s biggest Countdown show to date is Nada, host and presenter on Apple Music, and sideline reporter at the recent Sideman charity football match. Nada will be capturing all the red carpet arrivals on the night, and bringing viewers exclusive interviews from behind the scenes.
Kicking off at 7pm, the main DAZN PPV card will feature DAZN anchor and X Series fan favourite, Ade Oladipo taking the reins alongside two well-known names, both of whom have enjoyed recent victories inside the ring.
Middleweight boxing star Chris Eubank Junior looks to provide expert analysis on the packed fight card, joining the DAZN broadcast fresh from gaining revenge over Liam Smith in their mammoth Manchester clash. Sparring partner to KSI and recent X Series headliner Idris Virgo will complete the pundit duo on the night, analyzing all the action as this huge night unfolds.
Meanwhile, jetting in from the United States will be combat sports legend Ariel Helwani, the star and host of the wildly popular MMA Show. Helwani will be DAZN’s in-ring interviewer, bringing fans those iconic first interviews with fighters, just moments after their bouts end. Helwani will also join the commentary team for key fights during the card.
And leading that commentary team will be Todd Grisham, the voice of the X Series, who will once again guide viewers on DAZN PPV through all the action. He will be joined on co-comms by Jonathan “The Coach” Coachman, as the pair reunite to form one of the most respected commentary teams in combat sports entertainment.
Rounding out the DAZN PPV on-air talent team is Olivia Buzaglo, an exciting young sports news presenter and football host, who has recently made a statement in the world of combat sports, joining DAZN’s boxing and MMA on-air broadcast teams.
