Tommy Fury defeats KSI by majority decision

Tommy Fury defeats KSI by majority decision

KSI vs Tommy Fury took place tonight (14 October) at a sold-out Manchester AO Arena.

Tommy Fury has defeated KSI by majority decision.

The British duo battled it out this evening (14 October) at a sold-out Manchester AO Arena.

On the night, it was a pretty equal fight which could have gone either way after the second round out of the six, where Fury received a point reduction.

Love Island star Fury is unbeaten in his boxing career, having recently defeated Jake Paul in Saudi Arabia back in February.

However, KSI’s huge presence in the YouTube boxing scene has meant that a match-up with Tommy was always going to happen.

KSI – real name Olajide Olayinka Williams "JJ" Olatunji – has previously fought his now-business partner Logan Paul twice, as well as a number of other fellow creators and low-ranked professional boxers.

With his unorthodox approach, KSI did well in the opening rounds and looked to put Tommy off his game.

In the third, Fury came back stronger and dominated the fourth.

Despite the points deduction, two judges ruled in favour of Fury with 57-56, while one scored the fight 57-57.

The YouTuber called his defeat to Tommy Fury a 'robbery' and said he is going to 'appeal' the decision.


“We all know what’s going to happen,” said the younger brother of Tyson Fury, earlier this week.

“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?

“In this boxing world, he is a bum. I’m not interested (in him). 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.”

He added: “I’m in the crossover world of boxing, it’s a circus act… We know what we’re in for. I’m here to fight. Cut all the other bulls***, we’re fighting in two days, the talking is done.”

While KSI is expected to earn a seven-figure payday, he insists that he is 'clueless' when it comes to how much he will actually make.

Things got personal in their stand-off a day before the fight.

"For this fight, I don’t even know how much I’m getting paid. I don’t know.

"I know how much Tommy’s being paid and that’s about it," the 30-year-old told The Sun.

"I’m not really fussed, the money isn’t the reason I do this, I like creating big moments, I like looking back at my legacy and going, ‘Yeah, this was sick'.

"I just like shocking the world, I love it. There’s something about it which just makes me feel.

"I don’t want to say God like but it just makes me feel super powerful.

"I feel like after that I will be able to make so many people’s lives hell on social media. I’m just excited."

He insisted: "I’m happy where I’m at money-wise."
