Notorious YouTuber turned boxer, KSI is set to be going head to head with the Love Island star, and professional boxer Tommy Fury. Not only that, but KSI’s partner in Prime and equally controversial content creator Logan Paul will also be fighting at the event, going head to head with mixed martial arts champion Dillon Danis as the undercard match.
On 22 August 2023, the boxers held a press conference in an attempt to generate hype for the upcoming fight Naturally, tensions are always high in this setting—particularly when you consider the immaturity and general lack of self-control of both KSI and Tommy Fury. What audiences may not have expected, however, was John Fury, Tommy Fury’s father and personal trainer, to quite literally have a complete meltdown and lose his cool. The video of the self-appointed Gypsy King freaking out went viral almost immediately, and it’s a must-watch for anyone who’s a fan of grown men throwing temper tantrums:
Once Fury’s fist slammed down on the table, you knew shit was about to hit the fan. KSI and Paul couldn’t have looked more pleased with the outcome. As you can see in the video, chairs and tables went flying, and papa Fury had to be held back. I’m obsessed with the way Paul’s bodyguard is holding onto him like a protective dad while he stands on a chair hurling insults.
Even tough man Tommy found himself taken aback by his oddball dad.
If the press conference is anything to go off, then the real fight between the pair, taking place on 14 October 2023 in Manchester, should be a serious battle. Viewers eager to see YouTubers getting punched in the face can find the match streaming on sports network DAZN.
