The much-anticipated boxing bout between KSI and Tommy Fury is only weeks away from taking place. Tommy Fury has already dismantled Jake Paul in his previous fight and looks forward to shutting down yet another influencer. Meanwhile, KSI is coming off a controversial knockout from his last fight.
The YouTube personality will be trying to prove he is better than Jake Paul by knocking out Tommy under six rounds. The duo recently faced off again after their chaotic media event and Tommy managed to get under JJ’s skin. The British pugilist questioned KSI’s legitimacy as a boxer and stated that the social media giant was afraid to go 8 rounds against him.
Although KSI tried to save face stating he only needed one round to drop his opponent, he was proven wrong immediately. Fury stated that he’s been training with his brother and the heavyweight champion Tyson Fury for a very long time and JJ does not possess the same power as him.
“So you’re telling me you hit harder than the best fighter in the world Tyson Fury? Because I’ve been getting hit by him my whole life. So what makes you think you can do something to me?” questioned Tommy.
Both fighters then argued about Tyson’s career instead of their fight and had the mediator intervene. Regardless, fans believe Tommy Fury has already won the mental battle against KSI and will humble him soon. However, the YouTuber has a ton of belief in his skills and is ready to bet a million Dollars on himself.
KSI ready tried betting a million dollars on himself for his fight against Tommy Fury
After the face-off hosted by DAZN, British boxers KSI and Tommy Fury were part of yet another face-off hosted by streamer Adin Ross. Although Ross and KSI had a minor dispute before their virtual faceoff, Adin was ready to wager some money on KSI. But he also needed some reassurance from JJ that he was confident enough to win the fight.
Turns out KSI is mighty confident in his abilities and even tried betting a million dollars on himself. However, the betting situation seems to be a bit tricky as he can legally bet on himself but cannot wager on the individual rounds. Additionally, he can only bet up to a certain amount on himself which is much less than a million.
“So I’m trying to put, like, a mill down on myself but, like, first of all – a lot of the things that I’m trying to put in that much amount, just won’t let me. They’re like $5k minimum, I mean maximum. Can bet on myself just can’t bet on the round,” said KSI.
With the 30-year-old fighter having an ample amount of confidence in himself, he might have figured out Tommy Fury’s weakness. However, Fury himself is not taking this fight lightly and going all out in his training camp. Who do you think will take the win on October 14 in Manchester, England?
