KSI: ‘I was robbed’

KSI has had to be escorted away after punching a screen behind him.

Before he left, he said: ‘I understand the Fury name. I won it. It’s outrageous. Minus a point as well. I landed the cleanest shots. He couldn’t get any jabs off.

‘I was bang on the money. How!? Double jabs on. I don’t know what he did. Fury landed 12 punches the whole fight and he won it?

‘I f***ing hate losing man.’

Chris Eubank Jr says KSI should have won

Chris Eubank Jr has weighed in as he says: ‘I thought KSI landed the cleanest shots. Was moving better, boxing better. The points deduction was huge. Boxing is a strange thing’

A controversial result

KSI believes he won the first three round, and with the deducted point on top of that it should have been a clear win for him in his eyes.

KSI speaks

‘Robbery bro . How many jabs did you land? You got hardly any shots,’ asks KSI.

‘I’m the YouTuber, you’re the boxer. You have to win. I understand.

‘The amount of times he hit me in the back of the head. So many times. He was just grabbing me. I’m sorry. It’s outrageous. We’re going to appeal. I want to appeal. I need to see it again. I felt like I won that’.

Tommy Fury on KSI

‘Listen, he’s an awkward man. At the end of the day I got the victory. We are 10-0.’ said Tommy Fury.

‘I haven’t spoken to him. A lot went in the build-up. I’m done with this cross-over s***. Any of the Paul’s want it, I welcome it with open arms’.

To the judges…

KSI may have just won this.

ROUND 6

It’s gone to the last round.

‘This is a hobby for me. I’m a WWE superstar. I’m moving back to the WWE. I have my eye on something, on someone. I’m an American boy. I want that US title. Rey Mysterio I already beat you once and I’m coming for that championship.

‘Maybe if Conor McGregor wants to stand up for his b**** I’ll face him next year.’

LOGAN PAUL WINS BY DISQUALIFICATION

And Dillon Danis is disqualified.

Insane end to the fight

To the judges…

That was fight of the night.

He could’ve knocked out Deen The Great, who threw himself out of the ring to waste some time.

These are two of the very best in this scene.

Walid Sharks vs Deen The Great: Into the final round

ANTHONY TAYLOR WINS BY UNANIMOUS DECISION

All three judges score the bout 49-45 in favour of Anthony Taylor.

He’s the new Misfits light heavyweight champion and falls on his back in celebration

End of the fight

Anthony Taylor did what he needed to do.

I’ll be shocked if this isn’t a win for the American.

Disappointing from King Kenny.

Into the final round

Brutal from Kenny’s coach and brother.

It’s time to go for the knockout.

King Kenny: POINT DEDUCTED

King Kenny sees a point deducted for excessive holding.

If he’s to win this, it will need to be a knock-out.

Commentators aren’t happy

I’m not too sure why but the commentators are complaining with Anthony Taylor’s game plan.

Yes, it’s not making for the best watch.

But you’re matching him against a man with a huge reach advantage…

Kenny has to find his range

King Kenny is allowing Anthony Taylor to rush him.

He needs to find his range and utilise his reach advantage.

There could be a knock-out here, if Taylor rushes him and Kenny can land a clean hand.

King Kenny’s coach is not happy

Daley Perales, brother and coach of King Kenny, is telling him he’s not been good enough.

He’s encouraged his fighter to push Anthony Taylor back and bully him.

He’s coming in off a win against one of the highest-rated influencer boxers in Salt Papi.

Could he pull off another upset and beat King Kenny next?

MY MATE NATE WINS BY UNANIMOUS DECISION

The judges score it four rounds to none.

It was a perfect game plan from the man fighting out of Thailand.

He could go far in this scene!

Result up next

That may be one of the better technical fights you’ll see in influencer boxing.

My Mate Nate found his range and used his jab, throwing a lot of punches.

Whindersson Nunes went for the power shots and tried to knock him down.

Let’s see how the judges score this. For me, it’s My Mate Nate or a draw.

The most respectful fight ever?

It’s no secret that My Mate Nate may be the nicest guy in the crossover boxing scene.

He brought Whindersson Nunes Thai sweets in the press conference.

Each time the bell goes, he puts his glove out to fist bump his opponent too.

KSI is here

Here comes the nightmare.

KSI is in the building. He fights in the main event against Tommy Fury later.

My Mate Nate starting strong

My Mate Nate has shown some good footwork in the first round.

He has a strong jab and looks to be the better boxer technically.

Whindersson Nunes is one scary guy though.

Ryan Taylor is here

Ryan Taylor was supposed to face Swarmz in a prelim fight earlier today.

However, he was arrested in the build-up and took to X to admit that he couldn’t make weight after being in jail ahead of the fight.

He’s made it to the U.K. from Dubai though, and he’s watching on.

It could’ve been so different for Swarmz, who was knocked out by Ed Matthews just 30 seconds in.

UP NEXT: Whindersson Nunes vs My Mate Nate

Next up is the Brazilian star Whinderson Nunes. He has over 60,000,000 followers on Instagram alone.

TAG TEAM RESULT: DRAW

Pineda Coladas and WassabiLMAO in the tag team event ends in a draw.

Then came the Women’s Flyweight clash as Astrid Wett came out on top by a split decision, which caused some discussion in the arena.

Tempo Arts took the Misfits Heavyweight title, with another controversial decision.

Then came Ed Matthews, who took the fight on just a few days’ notice – and knocked Swarmz out just 30 seconds in.
