The end looked near for Deen the Great after he was dropped twice in the second round Saturday night in Austin, Texas, and live on DAZN.
But when Deen lived up to his name by uncorking a sensational right hand during the third round, it not only knocked Walid Sharks out but put an exclamation point on an incredible, rallying victory.
KSI and Logan Paul jumped on their respective Twitter accounts to heap praise onto Deen the Great's electric comeback and the overall MF & DAZN: X Series 003 event.

These MISFITS X DAZN fights are incredibly entertaining. Hasim showed real strength tonight and Deen the great with an amazing comeback. Congrats on another great event @KSI pic.twitter.com/5tftueX4Hu— Logan Paul (@LoganPaul) November 20, 2022
SHOW ME A BOXING PURIST THAT CAN SHIT ON THAT MISFITS 003 MAIN EVENT?— ksi (@KSI) November 20, 2022
WHAT AN EVENT!
Paul was referring to Hasim Rahman Jr. who valiantly fought Greg Hardy despite giving up nearly 100 pounds to the former NFL star and UFC fighter. Hardy defeated Rahman by unanimous decision earlier in Saturday night's event.
Misfits Boxing will look to continue its momentum January 14, when KSI fights Dillon Danis to headline MF & DAZN: X Series 004, live on DAZN pay-per-view.
