Kate Garraway was left ‘disturbed’ by Tommy Fury’s serious threat to KSI, after the pair trash-talked each other live on Good Morning Britain.
The celebrity boxers are due to go up against one another in Manchester next month, with the blockbuster fight confirmed at the end of July.
“I’m doing what Jake Paul couldn’t and beating Tommy Fury on the biggest night in crossover boxing history,” KSI wrote on social media, with Fury warning his opponent: “You’re getting knocked out in front of my home crowd. This is gonna be fun."
Their highly anticipated fight – which will take place at Manchester’s AO Arena on 14 October – follows Fury’s victory over KSI’s rival Jake Paul via split decision in Saudi Arabia earlier this year.
“This is an easy win for me, I’m training like I’m training for an undisputed world title fight,” Fury told presenters Ben Shephard and Kate Garraway via video link, with KSI also tuning in remotely.
“When I jump in the ring with KSI he will quickly realise that fighting a YouTuber is completely different to fighting a professional boxer.”
He was joined by his father John, who claimed his ‘good-looking son’ was ‘tough as boots’ and could beat anyone as he nodded along in agreement.
Fury continued: “This is a message for KSI. Cut all of that fancy talk out, the laughs and all the stupid bandanas, whatever you want to do… come October 14 his life will be ruined.
“All his singing, podcasting, his business, it will all be finished as mark my words, he’ll be leaving Manchester Arena in an ambulance. I can quite clearly guarantee it.”
A slightly stunned-looking Garraway exclaimed: “Crikey!”
She then went on: “I’m actually getting a little bit disturbed by all of this.
“I want to tell you all to calm down and have a cup of tea!"
Fury’s last fight against Paul took place back in February.
Despite being expected to smash through to a win, that fixture ended up being in a split decision in his favour and didn't feature a KO, as Fury had promised.
However, unlike that night, his match-up with KSI will not be sanctioned by the British Boxing board of Control (BBBofC) as a professional boxing fight.
Fury v KSI in Manchester is set for 14 October and will be live on DAZN.
