Famous British Youtuber, KSI ended the bout against Joe Fournier with a controversial KO this Saturday. In the heat of the moment, KSI dropped Fournier by landing an elbow strike in a boxing fight, which may also result in a ‘no contest ‘ altogether. Now, in the first round,  the 29-year-old Youtuber-turned-boxer tried to throw heavy punches. In the second round, he stunned his opponent with an impactful overhand right. Then in the follow-up to that punch, KSI attempted to knock out Fournier with a right hook. But, he missed the target, and accidentally made contact with his elbow instead.

Now, it seems,  KSI is looking for a matchup with British boxer Tommy Fury. The young Fury was sitting ringside during the KSI-Fournier match. Later, both fighters also had a face-off inside the ring and even exchanged some insults. So, hopefully, the world may witness KSI vs. Tommy ‘TNT’ before the end of this year. If the fight with Fury is finalized, it will be the third bout of ‘The Nightmare’ this year.

Now, KSI was a partner with DAZN for the Fournier fight, and he has generated a good amount of revenue in his previous fights with them together. Reportedly, he has made about $1 million in both fights against Logan Paul. During their press conference, Fournier and KSI also agreed on a $10 million wager on the ownership of his promotional banner, Misfits Boxing. So, it’s intriguing to see how much money KSI actually received after knocking out Fournier.
