Tommy Fury is the half-brother of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury and a former reality star.
The boxer made headlines after his scrap with Idris Virgo ringside at the KSI vs Joe Fournier pop boxing card. The action was captured in a social media video that went viral.
The Night at Wembley’s OVO Arena on Saturday night was headlined by YouTuber KSI’s stunning second-round knockout victory against Fournier. The undefeated boxing record holder called out Fury after, and the Love Island star accepted the challenge, stepping inside the ring to confront KSI.
KSI’s win might be overturned. KSI’s victory against Fournier was controversial, with the replays showing that his elbow appeared to make illegal contact with his opponent’s head. When he faced off with Fury, KSI referred to his recent win against American Jake Paul in Saudi Arabia and expressed his desire to knock out Fury as well.
However, the incident with Virgo had already taken place before this confrontation. Video footage shows Fury responding to Virgo’s challenge and shoving aggressively outside the ring. The situation escalated quickly, and security had to intervene as they clashed heads inside the ring.
In response, Fury confidently stated that he would not be knocked out and asked KSI to sign him up, promising an easy victory. He also questioned KSI’s record, claiming that he still hasn’t competed against an experienced professional.
The tension between the two continued to simmer inside the ring, with their entourages having to intervene to separate them. It remains to be seen who Fury’s next opponent will be, while Paul has expressed his desire for a rematch with Fury after his bout with Nate Diaz in August.
