After KSI won two fights in one night, Tommy Fury made room for a matchup with him.
Real name: KSI In his debut fight at London’s O2 arena, JJ Olatunji defeated rapper Swarmz in the second round. Three hours later, he returned to the ring and defeated Luis Pineda in the third. The Londoner then called out Tyson’s brother, Fury, as well as the infamous former kickboxer Andrew Tate and the YouTubers AnEsonGib, Austin McBroom, and Slim Albaher.
Fury tweeted in response, saying, “You know where to find me, KSI.” Fury was obviously scheduled to face KSI’s fierce rival Jake Paul earlier this month, but he was forced to cancel owing to a travel prohibition. Last December, he was scheduled to take on Paul, but he withdrew due to a damaged rib.
Since bailing out of his initial bout with Paul, Fury has only fought once, defeating Daniel Bocianski at Wembley in April on the undercard of his brother’s KO victory over Dillian Whyte. Although he hasn’t declared his next battle, he has recently become a prospective rival for KSI.
Additionally, according to KSI promoter Kalle Sauerland, Fury was a contender to replace the tournament’s first opponent, Alex Wassabi. Although we didn’t approach him, Sauerland added, “we were considering it before we followed the two-fight way.
“We considered putting out a call, but we realized that he wasn’t physically fit enough to come in on short notice, which is understandable. But still, why not later?” All eight of Fury’s professional fights have ended in victories, seven of which came after he and girlfriend Molly-Mae Hague placed second on Love Island.
Rapper Swarmz, who was competing for the first time, kept turning his back on the YouTuber, leaving Fury unsure of how to react to KSI’s first victory of the evening. He was knocked down in the first round, but he got up to hear the bell, and in the second round, he was knocked out once more before Fury tweeted, “What have I just seen?”
