In a groundbreaking announcement, fierce rivals KSI and Tommy Fury are set to go head-to-head in a significant crossover boxing match this autumn. The monumental battle will be broadcast live and exclusive on DAZN PPV as part of the mega MF & DAZN: X Series event at AO Arena in Manchester on Saturday, October 14.
The pair, who had to be separated by security during their face-off at X Series 007, are eager to settle their rivalry in the ring. The highly anticipated fight, in association with Prime, Stake, and Kick, promises to determine the reigning champion in the crossover boxing scene.
What KSI Has Said
In a confident statement, KSI declared his intent to triumph over Fury, asserting, “I came back to boxing to show the world the crazy levels I’m at. I’ve shown through obliterating all my past opponents that I am the best in this scene. After this fight, you’ll understand that I truly am that guy.”
What Tommy Fury Has Said
Tommy Fury, who previously defeated Jake Paul, responded with equal confidence. He promised fans, “I’ve already beaten Jake Paul and so all that is left for me to do is send this man to sleep. I’ll do that inside four rounds. This is easy money.”
