Frank Warren has slammed the ‘poor as p***’ standard of KSI and Tommy Fury‘s crossover boxing match. 

Fury went the full six rounds with the YouTube star at the AO Arena, finishing narrowly ahead 57-56 on two judges’ scorecards with the third an erroneous 57-57 draw.

It was a bout that drew criticisms from fans online, with many supporters disagreeing with the judges’ scoring on the night. 

Now, Queensbury Promotions chief Warren has offered his thoughts on the bout – which he labelled ‘poor as p***’ in a scathing review. 

‘The standard of some of them was poor as p***,’ Warren explained to IFLTV. ‘But if they can make money out of it, good luck to them.

‘When I was young, my hero was Muhammad Ali. These kids, their heroes are KSI. I don’t get it.’

Fury‘s victory against KSI was initially ruled as a ‘majority decision’ victory before being corrected as ‘a unanimous decision’ after one of the judges’ scorecards was added up incorrectly. 

It was announced that the judge in question scored the fight as a 57-57 draw when he actually scored it 57-56 to Fury. 

The other two judges also scored the six-round fight 57-56 to Fury as the Love Island star secured a controversial victory in Manchester.

The verdict was greeted with anger by KSI, with the YouTuber insisting he had beaten his professional rival. 

‘I understand the Fury name. I won it. It’s outrageous,’ KSI told DAZN. ‘Minus a point as well. I landed the cleanest shots. He couldn’t get any jabs off’.

Statistics from the fight revealed that Fury had thrown 159 punches across the six rounds, compared to KSI’s 124.

Fury connected with 39 of his punches, just one more than his rival.

Similarly, the co-main event between Logan Paul and Dillon Danis was labelled as a ‘disgrace to boxing’ after the contest ended with a mass brawl in the ring after the MMA fighter was disqualified.

The fight descended into chaos after MMA star Danis tried to take Paul down with a jiu-jitsu move in the final round.

Security was forced to swarm into the ring to separate the two fighters, with Paul’s corner taking to the canvas to defend their fighter. Danis’ team joined them in the ring as a mass brawl broke out. 

Paul was announced as the winner after confirmation that Danis had been disqualified.

Fans on social media hit out at the contest, slamming Danis for failing to throw punches in a one-sided contest before the farcical ending.
