Fury Extends Unbeaten Professional Career

It was a difficult fight to score, with much of the rounds full of scrappy clinching and very few clean shots. KSI had a great first round, rocking Fury with a straight right hand. Fury had limited success with “The Nightmare” seemingly doing the smarter work. But according to the judges TNT done enough for the decision.
Neither fighter will come out of the fight with an enhanced reputation, due to the scrappy nature of the contest. Many analysts on DAZN felt KSI won the fight, especially after Fury had a point deducted for punching around the back of his opponent’s head.

Post-fight Quotes

Following a tense wait, Fury’s arm was raised, and he was asked how he felt: “I did it for you Manchester, I did it for you.”

When asked about the scrappy nature of the fight, Fury declared: “I couldn’t use my right hand for six weeks.”

TNT exclaimed: “I fought my absolute heart out.

When asked about his opponent, he said: “He’s awkward, very awkward.”

Fury finished his post-fight interview by declaring “I’m done with crossover bulls**t.”

KSI was adamant in his post-fight interview he won the fight and said: “Robbery, it’s a robbery.”

It’s outrageous,” he added. ” We’re gonna appeal. We need to appeal. I feel like I won that.”

KSI told Fury: “How many jabs did you land? You got hardly any shots off. Look at your face, look at your eyes. I’m the YouTuber and you’re the boxer, you have to win.”
