KSI, on the other hand, has for a long time claimed that he is not getting the fights that he wants. One such matchup is against Jake Paul.

In a post that is creating ripples on the internet, ‘TNT’ can be seen training hard for his fight against KSI in the gym. The Twitter handle of Boxing Kingdom commented on Tommy Fury’s boxing skills.
