Tommy Fury beats KSI on majority decision in controversial Manchester bout | UK News

Tommy Fury has defeated KSI on a majority decision after the pair faced off in a six-round cruiserweight match in Manchester.

The professional boxer was given the nod 57-56 by two judges with a third scoring the contest 57-57.

His win was marred by a controversial points decision after he landed 12 jabs and 39 punches which connected compared to KSI’s 38 as well as having a point deducted for a rabbit punch.

KSI, a YouTube star, rapper and boxer, said after the bout: “It’s a robbery, how many jabs did he land? I’m the YouTuber, you’re the boxer, I understand, you have to win. I want to appeal.”

KSI, who came into the arena in a green Lamborghini alongside rapper Giggs, might have been the away fighter but his fans roared in support when he landed a solid overhand right early in the first round.

Fury responded with a left hook but his habit of landing several rabbit punches when the fighters were tied up led to him being docked the point in the second round after several complaints from KSI.

KSI showed stamina with a combination of uppercuts and overhead rights.

In the third round, he was ducking and diving as the bigger Fury began to lean on his opponent, beginning to find his range.

The fighters began to clinch a number of times in the next, although both came close to unloading with right hands before KSI took to the inside at the start of the fifth round in a tight encounter.

KSI then kept Fury at arms’ length throughout the final round and believed he had pulled off the shock win as he celebrated in his corner.

KSI vs Tommy Fury: YouTuber to fight unbeaten boxer in Manchester | Ents & Arts News

YouTuber KSI will fight boxer Tommy Fury in Manchester later this year.

The 30-year-old internet star, founder of Prime energy drinks, has fought in the ring before – but this will be his first bout since taking a break from the limelight after using a racist slur in an online video.

Fury, the brother of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, has already fought a YouTube celebrity this year, beating Jake Paul in Saudi Arabia in February.

The Manchester fight will take place at the AO Arena on 14 October.

KSI, real name Olajide Olatunji, has admitted it will be “the toughest fight in the influencer boxing scene”.

He has previously fought Jake Paul’s brother Logan, another YouTuber, who will fight at the same event against an unannounced opponent set to be revealed in the coming days.

Fury dismisses ‘joke’ YouTube fighters

Fury has described the upcoming bout as “easy money” and said he will knock KSI out “inside four rounds”.

The 24-year-old, who starred in Love Island in 2019, has won all nine of his professional fights – four by knockout.

He told Sky Sports earlier this year that YouTubers-turned-fighters like KSI and the Pauls “are a bit of a joke”.

“All these guys are the same to me,” he said.

“I’m used to growing up fighting against proper boxers.”

February: Scuffles at Fury and Paul weigh-in

Fight won’t be professionally sanctioned

KSI, who first rose to fame playing the FIFA video game for an online audience, is a regular on the popular Sidemen YouTube channel, which has nearly 19 million subscribers.

October’s fight is being organised by his Misfits Boxing label and will be broadcast by DAZN.

However, the fight has not been sanctioned by the British boxing regulator as a professional match – and KSI lacks a professional licence in the UK.

Only one of his previous fights has been professionally sanctioned, with the others all exhibitions.

His bout with Fury has instead been sanctioned by the Professional Boxing Association, but it won’t count towards either fighter’s professional record.

Jake Paul and Tommy Fury pulled apart at weigh-in ahead of Saudia Arabia clash | UK News

Tommy Fury and Jake Paul have had to be pulled apart at a weigh-in ahead of their clash in Saudi Arabia on Sunday.

The boxers traded insults and pushes as they squared up hours before their blockbuster fight – billed as “The Truth”.

Their long-standing feud will finally conclude at the Diriyah Arena after two previous scheduled matches had to be cancelled.

Fury, 23, was joined in his corner on stage by half-brother and heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury.

The former Love Island contestant told journalists: “Tomorrow night, his time is up. Jake Paul will no longer be boxing.

“I’m going to put this guy away in four rounds.”

But Paul, 26, has claimed Fury was performing for the cameras.

“He’s acting on stage, getting all hyped up, trying to act like his brother.

“This professional boxer is going down; it’s easy, it’s simple.”

And Paul accused his rival of being nervous ahead of their meeting while insisting he was “ready, calm, cool and collected”.

“This is what I do. He’s shaking up on stage; you can see the nerves running through his system.

“I’m chill,” he added.
