In the lead-up to KSI’s highly anticipated face-off with Tommy Fury, rapper DDG has placed a substantial wager on the outcome.
DDG previously won in an influencer boxing event against Tiktoker Nate Wyatt. He recently revealed his bold move, betting a hefty $100k on KSI to secure a knockout victory.
Brimming with confidence, KSI confidently asserts that the bookmakers will be paying out on fight night. He stated: “Easiest money of your life my g.”
Given that Fury defeated Jake Paul earlier this year who many had regarded as the best influencer boxer, KSI enters the bout as the underdog.
Nevertheless, KSI’s rigorous training regimen has offered him a sense of invincibility. He not only believes he can overcome Fury but also envisions himself posing a formidable challenge to world-class boxers such as Canelo, Dmitry Bivol, and Artur Beterbiev.
Speaking on the Channel, KSI remarked: “It’s kind of weird, but I honestly feel like at the end of camp I could fight anyone and give it a good f***ing go.”
“Whether it’s Canelo, whether it’s [Dmitry] Bivol, whether it’s [Artur] Beterbiev, anyone. I just feel like I’m on a different level.”
He then went on to humbly acknowledge: “But, that’s just the training, obviously I know in reality if I fight these guys, technically they’re way better than me and they know how to beat me.”
DDG’s substantial bet on KSI’s win against Tommy Fury reflects a significant vote of confidence in the British sensation. With a payout of $100k on the line, the rapper stands firmly behind KSI’s ability to secure a knockout victory.
Recently, KSI talked about his encounter with MMA icon Conor McGregor at the O2 Arena in August. On his YouTube channel, he expressed his desire to compete against McGregor if he got the chance.
KSI stated: “Conor’s a weird guy, man. I think he was trying to set up a fight, I think he wants to fight me, especially after what I do to Tommy [Fury]. I can see him getting excited and being like ‘Yeah, I want a piece of that’ and you know what? Fair. We’ll see, we’ll see if I’m down, we’ll see if I want to retire, see if I want to fight Jake [Paul] or Conor. I don’t know but I’ve got options, let me focus on Tommy first.”
