- Tommy Fury won Saturday night’s contest by majority decision in Manchester
- But the scorecards showed he should have won by unanimous verdict
- Judge Rafael Ramos appeared to calculate KSI’s score wrong on his card
After the lacklustre six-round fight at the Manchester Arena, one judge scored the contest as a 57-57 draw, with the other two marking it 57-56 in favour of Fury.
But when the scorecards were shared on social media, it appeared one judge incorrectly added up his tally.
Rafael Ramos scored the fight as a draw but the round-by-round tally on his scorecard actually showed he awarded only 56 points to KSI and 57 to Fury.
It means Fury should have technically won by unanimous decision rather than by a judges’ majority.

KSI described his defeat as a ‘robbery’ after the YouTuber landed plenty of punches on Fury
Ramos’ tied scorecard was announced first when legendary announcer Michael Buffer revealed the winner, ramping up the tension among the crowd.
But the other two cards had Fury narrowly on top, leading the inconsolable KSI to declare the outcome a ‘robbery.’
There was controversy in the second round of the fight with professional boxer Fury docked a point for punching around the back of the head.
That only made his task all the harder, with Ramos duly scoring that round 10-8 in favour of KSI.
Afterwards, Fury declared he was ‘done’ with fighting YouTubers, before quickly appearing to backtrack.
‘A lot went on in the build-up. I’m done with this cross-over s***,’ Fury told in-ring interviewer Ariel Helwani.
However, he then added: Any of the Pauls want it, I welcome it with open arms’.
Fury’s clash with KSI was his second straight fight against a YouTuber after he outpointed Jake Paul in February.

He now appears to be open to a rematch, while a fight with Logan may also be on the cards.
Logan fought on Saturday’s undercard in a grudge match against Dillon Danis that ended in farcical circumstances.
Danis was disqualified after trying to to use his MMA skills to take Logan down on multiple occasions, and his actions sparked a brawl in the final round that led to 30 security guards jumping into the ring, leaving the referee with no choice but to wave the fight off.
