Tommy Fury was the favorite heading into the match against internet star KSI, but in the ring the result was much more than many had previously expected. Fury comes from a fairly well-known boxing family and is the younger brother of world champion Tyson Fury.
KSI, whose real name is Olajide Olatunji, is known as one of the biggest influencers in the UK.
The 30-year-old surprised the experts and started the match very well. Fury was also deducted one point by the referee after he hit KSI in the back of the head early in the match.
Fury received more attention as time went on but was unable to deliver the knockout and the fight continued all six rounds. It is then up to the judges to decide the winner and they thought Fury won the fight and gave the following score: 57-57, 57-56, 57-56. And so the 24-year-old Manchester player can unleash jubilation in his hometown.
– I felt like I won
This surprised DAZN commentators.
– I’m in shock. Fury lost one point but won. “I don’t agree with this decision,” the commentator shouted after the judges declared Fury the winner.
KSI got angry in the in-ring interview after the match.
– It was theft. I felt like I won this battle. I’m the YouTuber and you’re the boxer. “I understand you have to win,” KSI told Fury.
The YouTuber then announced that he would appeal the referee’s decision that gave Fury the win. Fury responded by calling KSI a bad loser.
Logan Paul: -Dennis is a coward
In the other big match on Saturday, it was Logan Paul who was victorious in his match against Dillon Danis. The fight came on the heels of a bitter social media war between the two.
But in the ring, there was no doubt who was the best. Paul crushed Danis and dominated all six rounds. It all ended with Danis being disqualified in the final round after he tried to drag Paul to the mat.
After the match, Paul launched a direct attack on Danis after the latter published a number of pictures of Paul’s fiancée in the period preceding the match.
Paul is engaged to Danish model Nina Agdal, the latter of whom has been scrutinized by Danes in recent months.
– Dillon Danis is a coward. He’s a dirty person. Dealing with such a man was not easy. It’s the devil, Paul is angry after winning.
