In what’s being dubbed as a landmark event in crossover boxing, YouTube sensation KSI and undefeated professional boxer Tommy Fury are slated to square off in an explosive encounter this fall. The highly anticipated bout is set to be broadcast live on DAZN PPV.
The duo will clash at the star-studded MF & DAZN: X Series happening at Manchester’s AO Arena on Saturday, October 14. An evening poised to etch its place in boxing lore. Logan Paul, another prominent name in the influencer boxing circuit, will be fighting on the same night, with his opponent’s identity to be unveiled soon.
Tensions between KSI and Fury reached a boiling point at X Series 007, where security had to intervene. This showdown in October aims to settle the rivalry and establish supremacy in the crossover boxing world.
Fury, who emerged victorious over Jake Paul in his latest bout, has pledged to teach KSI a lesson in humility.
KSI, however, known as ‘The Nightmare’, is determined to deal Fury his first-ever defeat, intending to demonstrate to Jake Paul the right way to do it and cause an uproar in the sport with a victory of unprecedented magnitude in this arena.
KSI remains confident, saying, “I returned to boxing to show the world my exceptional skills. My series of KOs is proof that I am the top contender in this arena. I can’t wait to prove all the skeptics wrong who think I stand no chance against Tommy Fury, the man who ended Jake Paul’s undefeated streak.”
In response, Tommy Fury voiced his readiness, stating, “Having already taken down Jake Paul, I just have to knock out this guy. I predict he’ll be down within four rounds. It’s as good as my money in the bank.”
Misfits Boxing Co-Presidents, Mams Taylor and Kalle Sauerland, are equally excited about this clash, promising it will be a spectacular night for crossover boxing history, with Taylor teasing, “the night is only going to get bigger.”
Sauerland echoed the excitement, saying, “This monumental event is going to break the internet with viewership numbers the likes of which have never been seen before in this space. ”
Joe Markowski, CEO of DAZN North America, shared his anticipation, saying, “Adding such a huge event to DAZN’s 2023 schedule is incredibly exciting. Two titans in crossover boxing in a match for the ages. This is a fight you won’t want to miss. It’ll be broadcast live worldwide on DAZN and DAZN PPV.”
