In the lead-up to ‘The Prime Card’ pay-per-view (PPV) event scheduled for Saturday, the atmosphere at the Misfits Boxing press conference before the match has been nothing short of electrifying. The boxing event will be taking place on October 14, 2023, in Manchester, England.
While KSI gears up to face Tommy Fury, it’s been Tommy’s father John Fury who has been dominating the spotlight with his fiery antics. Weeks ago, Fury Sr. made headlines by flipping over tables at a press conference. During the open workouts in London, he once again asserted his presence.
Video footage captured a heated exchange between KSI and Tommy Fury. KSI was positioned on an upstairs balcony. He boldly taunted his opponent, “P**sy! Look at me! Look at me when I’m talking to you, p**sy!””
John Fury nonchalantly strolled up to a water bottle outside the stage before whipping it at KSI. Although the bottle collided with a glass barrier, it elicited a spirited reaction from KSI.
In retaliation, the YouTuber-turned-boxer spat down at John and ended up narrowly missing him.
Fury’s thunderous voice reverberated through the venue. He shouted: “Come down here! Come down here! I’ll f**k you. I’ll f**k you!”
When asked to recount the incident, the 59-year-old stated: “I don’t like idiots. I don’t suffer fools. Was not game.”
Such dramatics are bound to happen in the world of influencer boxing. Yet, it seems like John Fury is quite dramatic and cannot be underestimated.
KSI and Tommy Fury are slated for the main event, while the co-headliner bout promises its own share of intrigue. Logan Paul is set to face off against Dillon Danis if Danis doesn’t withdraw at the last moment. In case that happens, Mike Perry stands ready to step in.
Given the whirlwind of chaos surrounding this event, the unexpected remains a very real possibility.
