Why Tommy Fury will beat KSI

1 – Fury Has Family Pedigree

Tommy Fury is from a boxing family, and while that doesn’t necessarily make him good at boxing it does mean that he’s been in a sort of training camp his whole life. Everyone knows that Fury’s brother Tyson is the heavyweight champion of the world, but it’s less well known that his dad John was a professional too and so are more than five of his brothers and cousins.

2 – KSI’s Power Is Overrated

KSI has boxed seven times and knocked out five opponents, but those guys weren’t close to the level of Tommy. KSI’s best stoppage win came against boxing businessman Joe Fournier but that result changed to a ‘No Contest’ when replays showed that it was a massive blow from KSI’s elbow that finished off Fournier.

3 – Fury Is The Smarter Boxer

KSI is aggressive but Fury has seen that before, and the Love Island star will move or hold when he has too. Logan Paul made ‘JJ’ pay for throwing big bombs by levelling him with an uppercut, but Tommy may just be happy to score enough points to win the contest.

4 – KSI Doesn’t Have The Experience

Neither man has veteran-level experience, but Fury has boxed 32 rounds as a professional, including a hard-fought 24 minutes against Jake Paul, while KSI has only done 23. The fight is scheduled for six rounds, which works in the Watford YouTuber’s favour, but when the bout settles into a rhythm Fury will know enough to get the win.

5 – Jake Paul Would Beat KSI

The man known as Olajide William Olatunji on his passport is a fitter fighter than when he beat Logan slightly fortunately by split decision in 2019, but Jake is a much more skilled operator than his brother. Tommy beat Jake, so boxing maths says he should be too good for KSI as well.
