There has been no official statement from the promotion. 

In January 2023, it was announced that Misfits Boxing and DAZN had signed a 5 year deal to continue distribute events with two pay-per-view each year.

KSI has fought five times – twice in one night – on the Misfits Boxing promotion, winning all but his recent clash with former Love Island star Fury. 

Fury beat KSI in Manchester by unanimous decision, although on the night, it was incorrectly called as a majority decision. 

He won despite having a point deducted for punching around the back of the head in their clash at the AO Arena. 

In December, the YouTuber-turned-boxer lodged an appeal with the Professional Boxing Association, who sanctioned the bout, but an independent review panel denied his desires

The 30-year-old revealed that he broke down into tears following his defeat to the professional boxer.

Speaking on his official YouTube channel, KSI said: ‘I had trained so hard these past few months, working overtime to do what most people saw was impossible and that was to beat Tommy Fury.

‘I felt like I won the fight so to have the judges completely take that moment away from me, it sucked.

‘As soon as I got back home I was angry disappointed and eventually I just broke down and started crying, it wasn’t fair, but life isn’t fair, am I right?

‘I looked back at the fight and I tried to find any highlights, any showings of Tommy Fury beating me in that fight and it was just hard to see any’.
