Tommy Fury wants to 'get in the ring’ with Conor McGregor

Tommy Fury wants to 'get in the ring’ with Conor McGregor

He's said he'd 'love' to get in the ring with him

Tommy Fury has admitted that he’s got his sights set on a fight with Conor McGregor, revealing he would ‘love to get in the right with him’.

Fury is currently celebrating his win against YouTuber-turned-boxer KSI at Manchester’s AO Arena last night (14 October).

After six rounds, Fury was given a majority decision win, with one judge scoring the fight a 57-57 draw, and the other two marking it 57-56 in favour of Fury - although a photo of the scorecards shared on social media appears to show one judge didn’t add up his numbers correctly.

Although he didn’t secure a win - a decision he branded a ‘robbery’ before demanding a rematch - KSI did capture the attention of MMA legend McGregor who took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to suggest a fight between the pair would be ‘exciting’.

He wrote: “Ya know what. Me and KSI is an exciting fight. A juicy nixer I used to call them back when I was a plumber now I’m on the lambo yacht he’s in a huracan.”

However, in a post-match interview, Fury has shared that he would like to take on McGregor if the opportunity presented itself.

Fury said: “Definitely. I like Conor, I'm not going to slag him off but if Conor wants it next, I'll happily share the ring with him. I'd like to share the ring with him.

“I know he was calling out KSI but I've beaten him now so if McGregor wants it, I'd love to get in the ring with him.”

In an interview with the BBC, Fury also revealed that he would be open to a rematch with KSI, so long as he ‘sweetened up his attitude’.

Asked if he would ‘face’ KSI again, Fury replied: “We’re going to sit around the table and see what’s on, basically.

“But at the end of the day, KSI is a sore loser. He got beat, and that’s it… fair and square. On his own show, everything was going for him and he got beat. So, at the end of the day he needs to go back to the drawing board now, and I move on.”

When pressed further on whether he’d take a rematch, he reiterated: “Like I said, we’ll see what’s next.

"If KSI wants another go, he’s going to have to sweeten up his attitude, because at the end of the day, it’s my turn - I’m the head of this table now.

"Crossover boxing belongs to me: I beat Jake Paul, I beat KSI, the two front runners. I’m the head of this table now."
