Nigel Farage belts out National Anthem more passionately than ever ahead of KSI fight

It was a ‘fascinating, transformative moment’, he said 

Nigel Farage filmed himself singing the National Anthem more passionately than any man ever as he made an unexpected appearance at KSI’s boxing match at The O2 in London this weekend.

English YouTuber and rapper KSI knocked out Swarmz and Luis Alcarez Pineda to win both of his fights on Saturday night.

The British social media star returned to the ring for the first time in almost three years and had a successful pair of bouts.

In the first fight of the night,KSI knocked Swarmz backwards with a hard right hand inside the first ten seconds.

The rapper attempted a couple of crazed swings in response, but was countered effectively by the social media sensation.

Three hours later, he returned to the ring to face Pineda, delivering another decisive victory.

He showed off by doing press-ups in the ring as he knocked down his opponent, with the fight ending in the third round after  Pineda hit the deck two more times and sat out the referee’s count.

Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage was spotted ringside, and belted out the National Anthem before the fight began.

Speaking on GB News about why he was there, he said: “They [influencers] are a counter to the left-wing propaganda that is being fed to our youngsters through our schools and our universities,” Farage told GB News of why he was there.

“It was for me a really fascinating, transformative moment.”
