KSI’s team responds after decision is finally made about ‘judging error’ in Tommy Fury fight

KSI’s team responds after decision is finally made about ‘judging error’ in Tommy Fury fight

At the time, KSI called his loss to Tommy Fury a 'robbery'

It looks like the upset over the result of Tommy Fury and KSI's boxing match is far from over.

When Fury won on points, the YouTuber called the result a 'robbery' and vowed to appeal.

A decision on that appeal was reached today (1 December), but KSI's team have said they're not backing down.

The sold-out fight took place Manchester's AO Arena on 14 October, with the undefeated British duo battling it out for bragging rights.

The pair were pretty equally matched, with viewers of the fight saying it could have easily gone either way, but it was Tyson Fury's little brother that ultimately came out on top.

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

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

"Robbery, it's a robbery bro," KSI said 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."

He 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."

But the YouTuber's appeal didn't go the way he hoped, with the Professional Boxing Association releasing an official statement reading: "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."

You'd think that would be the end of it, but apparently not.

Following their appeal being rejected, KSI's manager and Misfits Boxing chief Mams Taylor said: "The appeals process against the result of KSI's contest with Tommy Fury at the Prime Card, in Manchester on October 14, is ongoing.

"We will now move to the second of three possible stages of the appeal, as we continue to fight to have the decision of the bout rightly overturned."

He later followed that up with: "I don’t give a f**k if it’s a close fight. If it’s the wrong decision, it’s the wrong decision."

But boxing fans aren't so convinced.

One user wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter: "Jesus Christ! You LOST Man give it up!"

Another commented: "Just take the L and keep it P."

And a third said: "This is so embarrassing for KSI’s team. You lost the fight, take the loss with some level of dignity and keep moving forward."
