People point out hilarious irony as Tommy Fury tells KSI ‘you know where to find me’ after knockout wins
| Last updated
Tommy Fury has been roasted online after telling KSI 'you know where to find me'.
The former Love Island star's statement was a response to KSI's callout following his two-match win at the O2 Arena last night (27 August).
"Slim [Albaher] looks good, I want a piece of that," he said. "Austin [McBroom] vs AnEson Gib, I want the winner of that.
"Andrew Tate, I want a piece of that. Tommy Fury, I want a piece of that. I’m warmed up and I’m excited. Nothing can harm me."
While we're yet to hear from the others, Fury certainly appears game, writing on Twitter: "You know where to find me @KSI."
However, fans were quick to point out the irony of his response given that he's had to pull out of his long-awaited match with YouTuber Jake Paul twice now.
The duo had been due to fight last year in Tampa Bay, Florida on 18 December but Fury pulled out at the last minute after suffering from rib fractures and a chest infection.
They rearranged to enter the ring at Madison Square Garden in August, but that plan also fell apart after Fury was denied entry to the US.
With this in mind, hundreds of people have replied to the boxer's tweet to KSI, with one joking: "Liam Neeson would struggle to find you when it comes to arranging a boxing match Tommy."

You’ll pull out tho, so what’s the point?— Joel Morris (@JMXFifa) August 27, 2022
You already thinking of your excuse to pull out of the fight?— Kevin Ashford (@KevinAshford7) August 27, 2022
"You'd probably stub your toe the night before the fight," said another, while a third quipped, "You already thinking of your excuse to pull out of the fight?"
A fourth added: "Not really got a leg to stand on here have you Tommy? Bottled the past two offers from Jake Paul."
Others suggested he should stop 'chasing YouTubers'.
While we're on the subject, funnily enough Jake was one of the names who didn't make KSI's list, despite talks of the two going head-to-head after the Sidemen star's original opponent dipped out due to injury.
When asked about why he didn't name Jake, KSI later explained to DAZN: "There's so many more and that's why I was calling out everyone, bro.
"There's so many people I have to go through before I get to Jake. Jake is definitely the main goal, but soon come. Soon come."
Jake has since taken to Twitter to write: "Smart man KSI is not calling me out. He knows the truth," adding: "Nate Robinson would beat KSI."

Just got the call.— Jake Paul (@jakepaul) August 27, 2022
Massive opponent announcement this week.
He later teased a potential upcoming fight, stating: "Just got the call. Massive opponent announcement this week."
Perhaps we'll be seeing KSI vs Jake Paul in the future. Or KSI vs Tommy Fury. Or all three in a massive showdown... stranger things have happened.
