Paul mocked KSI in a series of tweets on X claiming he was ‘crying for an appeal’
Paul quickly took to social media to mock his rival, before insisting that he had taken his own defeat to Fury ‘like a man’ back in February.
‘Only thing that got robbed is his hair line,’ Paul posted on X, formerly Twitter. ‘It’s okay KSI me too it’s gonna be okay bubba.’
‘I took my loss like a man from the scorecard read and showed the youth how to learn from it and come back to take a W.
‘This 30-year-old man crying for an appeal.’
Paul had lost to Fury via split decision in Saudi Arabia back in February, with one judge scoring it 75-74 to Paul and the other two scoring it 76-73 to Fury.
The YouTuber-turned-boxer also said he disagreed with the judges’ scores after the showdown. However, he did admit it was a ‘close fight’.
Paul, despite insisting he had taken the defeat well, was booed by the crowd in Saudi Arabia for claiming illness and injury contributed to his loss.
‘Honestly, I felt flat. I got sick really bad twice in this camp, injured my arm, so it wasn’t my best performance,’ Paul said.
‘But I lost – I’m not making excuses. I’m just saying, it wasn’t my best performance, I felt a little flat and like I said, we’re going to come back and get that W.’

In March, Paul bizarrely claimed he had a ‘wet dream’ in the build up to the fight that had been one of the reasons for his defeat.
‘You have two weeks of testosterone built up and so the reason a wet dream happens is because your body needs to release that energy, it knows in your mind, “this is not good”. I f***ed myself,’ he said.
‘But yeah it makes your legs weak. For the viewers, that’s why it’s bad, it makes your legs weak.’
