KSI and Tommy Fury are finally going to settle their differences after months of back and forth between the two. The fight which is going to headline Misfit Boxing’s PRIME card is going to take place on October 14th. This fight will be the hardest challenge JJ has ever faced throughout his career as he tries to hand the Love Island star the first defeat of his professional career. The fight was in the works since they had a faceoff after his knockout victory over Joe Fournier. However, that bout was declared a no-contest because of JJ landing an illegal elbow shot.

Fury has already defeated his rival Jake Paul back in January earlier this year and has stated his intentions to destroy YouTube boxing in 12 months. Meanwhile, KSI is looking to prove himself better than Paul by defeating Fury. However, not a lot of people believe in his chances. Recently, Boxing Kingdom stated on Twitter, “Tommy Fury vs KSI is a massive mismatch by the way. Massive size difference. Jake Paul isn’t that bad as a pro. Tommy will be much better than that fight, common with those who have limited amateur experience. KSI is athletic but still a YouTuber. Tommy’s now a lower-level pro…”. The post pointed out the problems in the match-up and how one-sided the fight is because of the limited experience of the YouTuber. However, the post prompted KSI to speak up regarding his upcoming fight and make his case.

Meanwhile, a fan expressed skepticism about Tommy Fury’s choice of opponents, implying that he should avoid facing influencer boxers. However, he also acknowledged the allure of a hefty paycheck.

 

Someone else pointed out a huge flaw in KSI’s boxing stance which would make it easy for Fury to punish him. He stated, “Not to mention KSI fights with his hands down by his hips lol”.

 

Another fan is surprised by those who believe KSI has a fighting chance, citing KSI’s perceived sloppiness in previous bouts. He stated, “Like he has looked incredibly sloppy in all of his fights.”
