Boxer Tommy Fury has just got into a fight with fellow ex-Love Island star Idris Virgo before KSI vs Joe Fournier's fight.

It’s all go at the Misfits 007 fight, where KSI - real name Olajide Olayinka Williams Olatunji - is due to face 40-year-old Fournier at the OVO Arena Wembley tonight (13 May).

Fury is in attendance at the boxing event, but he isn’t scheduled to make an appearance in the ring this evening.

However, the 24-year-old has actually been caught scrapping at the event, just moments after Anthony Taylor had his hand raised against Salt Papi.

Taylor AKA Pretty Boy was handed the decision, and minutes later, Fury was confronted by Virgo.

Virgo, known as The Bodybreaker, has also swapped Love Island life for a professional boxing career and currently has a 12-0-1 win-loss-draw streak.

Right now, it’s not known why the scrap started, but the two were spotted crossing paths in a video from S. Sami (S_Universal) and beginning to brawl, with footage being shared via Twitter.

According to TalkSport, Fury was seen in a headlock while the Express reported that the two men could be seen grappling before a sea of people attempted to break up the fight and move the pair apart.

A couple of the people reportedly trying to subdue the struggle were Fury’s father, John Fury, and 38-year-old Latvian boxer, Mairis Briedis.

During the smackdown, DAZN commentators could reportedly be heard saying: “Uh oh, who is that? Tommy and who?

“Is that Idris Virgo? Oh that’s Idris Virgo, knowing Idris he would have gone over and asked for a fight,” they said.

The fight comes after Virgil has previously called for Fury to spar with him.

In March, the 29-year-old said: “I offered a fight with Tommy Fury, but he pulled out! I was actually granted a fight with Tommy Fury, and he pulled out of it!

“I came out of Love Island, and then he went to Love Island. As soon as he came out of Love Island, I got a call from his manager, who then offered my coach the chance to fight Tommy Fury.

“I accepted and immediately wanted to build this fight,” Virgil continued. “Tommy instantly said,’No, I don’t want to fight Idris Virgo. I don’t want him at my fight because he will put me off.’ I was left thinking ‘why would he take offer the fight if he had no interest in taking it?”

LADbible has reached out to Fury and Virgo’s representatives for comment.
