“Bro, I know him & I know how much work KSI put in bro & when I see this s**t, I almost f****in cry cause that s**t pissed me off,” said IShowSpeed. He feels that KSI got robbed in this match and he should have won.

KSI vs.Tommy Fury results changed due to a scorecard error
While KSI & most of his fans feel that he did enough to win the match, the judges do not feel the same way. Initially, two judges gave the fight 57-56 in favor of Tommy Fury while the third judge marked it as a 56-56 draw which led to a majority decision win for Fury.
Furthermore, Tommy Fury had one point deducted in the second round due to an unintentional blow to the back of the head. KSI was outraged by this decision as he felt that he had a better strike accuracy than his opponent. However, now there is a bigger reason for KSI to be angry.

One of the three judges, Rafael Ramos had initially scored the contest a 56-56 draw but upon further inspection, Ramos made a calculation error and his actual scores were 57-56 in favor of Tommy. As a result, this correction makes the fight a unanimous decision victory for Tommy Fury.
This is definitely bad news for JJ and boxing fans. Some of his fans still believe that it was a robbery since two of the judges did not even deduct a point from Tommy in the second round.
