Decision made after KSI appealed Tommy Fury fight result due to 'judging error'

Decision made after KSI appealed Tommy Fury fight result due to 'judging error'

A decision has been made after KSI appealed his loss to Tommy Fury

A decision has been made after KSI appealed his boxing loss against Tommy Fury in October.

The highly anticipated fight took place at a sold-out Manchester AO Arena on 14 October, as the undefeated British duo battled it out for bragging rights.

Many viewers thought that, on the night, it was a pretty equal fight that could have gone either way.

After the second round, Fury received a point reduction for a punch in the back of KSI's head.

With his unorthodox approach, the YouTuber did well in the opening rounds and looked to put Fury off his game, before the pro boxer started to dominate.

Despite the point deduction, two judges ruled in favour of Fury with 57-56, while Rafael Ramos scored the fight 57-57.

KSI has called his defeat to Tommy Fury a 'robbery'.

This was until an error was spotted on Ramos' score card, which was later changed to 57-56 - meaning Fury should have technically won by unanimous decision.

"Robbery, it's a robbery bro," said KSI after the result was announced.

"How many jabs did he land? And he had a point taken off as well. You weren't landing. Look at your face, look at your eyes. Look at you."

Fury replied: "You're a sore loser. You're a bum. Back to YouTube."

KSI added: "How do I lose a six rounder? Unreal.

"He is the man who is meant to be a pro boxer and he won a majority decision? It's outrageous man.

"The amount of times he hit me in the back of the head. So many times. And the referee only took one point? He kept doing it over and over.

"I'm sorry, it's outrageous.

"We're going to appeal, I want to appeal. I felt like I won that."

One score card was added up wrong.

After going through with their appeal, team KSI did not get the verdict they would have wanted.

The Professional Boxing Association has released a statement today (1 December), which reads: "The PBA confirms that an independent review panel, consisting of two of the country’s leading King’s Counsel and a third lawyer, has determined that there are no grounds to overturn the KSI vs Tommy Fury fight result from October 14, 2023."

Even before the fight, Fury was adamant he was the better boxer.

“There’s no way this man can live with me. Who’s he fought? He’s fought a rapper and the rest are YouTubers. What is going on?" he said.

“In this boxing world, he is a bum. I’m not interested. I’m levels above these guys. I’ve got every single advantage: bigger, stronger, reach, weight. This will be an early night, I promise you.

“I’ve trained like a demon for 10 weeks for this man and I’ve sparred everybody, I’ve been sparring Tyson, been sparring the whole lot of them.”
