- Tommy Fury beat KSI by majority decision on Saturday despite a point deduction
- KSI claimed that the decision was a ‘robbery’ in a post-fight interview
- Two judges scoring 57-56 in his favour, while the third scored a 57-57 draw
After months of trading insults, the pair finally stepped inside the ring at the AO Arena in Manchester, but it was not the knockout victory that the former Love Island star would have hoped for.
The fight went the full six rounds, with Fury being deducted a point for punching his opponent in the back of the head, but ultimately clinched victory, with two judges scoring 57-56 in his favour, while the third scored a 57-57 draw.
KSI can take pride from lasting the full six rounds with a man that has been training since he was little and is the brother of the heavyweight champion of the world.
The Sidemen leader took to Twitter on Sunday, writing: ‘Appreciate all the kind messages from everyone. In the ring and watching it back I feel like I should have won.
KSI believes he should have won his fight against Tommy Fury on Saturday night
‘Either way I feel like I accomplished what I wanted to in the end. This little untalented nerd was able go toe to toe with a professional boxer. Use me as the living proof that hard work and self belief can get you anywhere in this life.
Fury has now claimed back-to-back wins against Jake Paul and KSI within the space of 12 months.
But there was plenty of drama afterwards with many disagreeing with the decision.
Fans took to social media to brand the fight a ‘sham’ after many viewers were left baffled by the majority decision, with Fury landing only 12 jabs and had a point taken off him.
Even Chris Eubank Jr was left stumped by the decision with the professional fighter claiming the YouTuber ‘boxed better’ than Fury, while Eddie Hearn called the decision ‘horses s***’.
Fury edged the fight on then judges scorecards but it wasn’t the outcome we has hoping for
Interestingly, when a picture of the the judges’ cards were posted on social media it seemed that one judge had made a discrepancy in his count. Rafael Ramos had scored his card as a draw but on further inspection he had actually awarded 57 points to Fury and not 56 as it stated, meaning the 23-year-old should have won by unanimous decision.
Despite that Fury admitted he was ‘s***’ and ‘useless’ during the bout, while also admitting he was no longer interested in cross-over fights, despite back tracking claiming that he was still open to a bout between Jake or Logan Paul.
