KSI vs Tommy Fury Fight Preview

This might be the biggest YouTube boxing event ever. It’s the fight that’s got everyone talking, from the amateurs to the pros. KSI really knows how to talk a big game and so far along his boxing journey, he’s backed it up. However, this will surely be his toughest fight yet with Tommy Fury coming from a professional boxing background and looking to take another Youtuber down. Fury is unbeaten in his career (9-0, 4KO) and KSI has also won all of his fights, so one of them will have to eat some humble pie and take their first loss.

Fury’s to Lose

The expectations in the Fury household are generally high, so all the pressure will be on Tommy to make sure he makes light work of someone who’s technically an amateur boxer. If he lost this one, it would not go down well in the wider family. Tommy has boasted in his pre-fight meet with KSI that he’s sparred with his older brother; a heavyweight world champion.

As training and family heritage goes, it doesn’t get much better. Even if the tiniest bit of knowledge rubbed off it puts Tommy streets ahead of KSI. He’s also a long-time professional. Someone who knows the game and hasn’t taken this up off the back of fame and fortune. The Jake Paul win should have given him a lot of confidence when it comes to fights of this nature, and he may even consider this an easier fight.

He has the technical ability, the background, the team, and the support of pretty much the whole boxing community to put KSI to bed. He’s got a lot of pressure on him, but it was a similar story when he fought Jake Paul and he managed to come through that. He’s been in this for far, far longer than KSI, and if he can take him into deep waters, use that knowledge, and make sure he’s in control of this fight throughout, then it should be his to take.

Heavy Pressure

KSI has nothing to lose. Nothing at all. If he loses this one we shrug and say “Of course he did, Tommy is a professional boxer and KSI is a Youtuber.” It was exactly the same when Fury faced Jake Paul. But, he managed to make quite hard work of that fight and it certainly wasn’t a convincing victory against someone we all expected Fury to smash.

Although he’ll probably see this as an easier fight, the thought of losing this one will really be keeping him up at night. Imagine the scenes in the Fury house if he loses to someone who is a YouTuber. Could he be disowned? I wouldn’t rule it out. That monumental pressure will follow him into the ring this weekend when he takes on KSI. Could he crack knowing that losing would be catastrophic for him?

KSI doesn’t do things in halves. The YouTube sensation really won’t mind coming into this one as the underdog and will enjoy the chance to take a professional down, even if it is just to test himself against the very best. If he can make this fight messy, then it’s up for grabs. KSI is also one of the most confident people on the planet. There were chances for Jake Paul to get after Fury, he just didn’t take them. KSI won’t think twice.

KSI has a far more unorthodox style. He’s not trying to fight like a pro. He’s all arms and limbs and will just come into this all-guns-blazing, Rambo style. That is probably the best technique, to be honest. Make Fury fight on his terms. Either way, it’s going to be such an interesting battle. Roll on fight night!

KSI vs Tommy Fury Betting Tips

Tommy Fury by decision @ 2.75

It’s the sensible bet on this one. After taking down Jake Paul in his last fight, all the chatter and history suggests that Tommy, the pro, will do the same here. Take down another Youtuber and move on to harder fights.

Tommy Fury to win in round 1 @ 12.00

He’s said he wants to end this one in the first round. After a slightly underwhelming performance against Jake Paul, is Tommy saving his best for KSI and hoping to take him down in the first? Maybe we just haven’t seen his best and a big KO is coming.

KSI by decision @ 8.50

Could KSI pull off a shock result? Quite possibly. While its really unlikely that he knocks out Fury, if the fight goes the distance and KSI manages to get some big blows in, he could win this one and take a famous victory.
