I am not a fan of YouTubers deciding they want to be professional fighters, boxers train for years to get to this stage and they are suddenly thrown into the spotlight because they have a few followers. It just doesn’t sit right with me.
Now don’t get me wrong, this is not just a dig at KSI, I put Tommy Fury in that category as well. He went on a reality television show to boost his profile and uses the fact he is Tyson Fury’s brother to great effect.
If it was up to me, I would not be covering these fights, but I am not daft, I know there is plenty of interest and if there is a betting market then we will also be interested.
Fury is undefeated as a professional. He has won all of his nine fights and comes into this bout on the back of a victory over Jake Paul – another attention-seeking ‘celebrity’.
KSI is also undefeated. He has won all five fights, stopping his last four within the distance.
On paper that looks impressive, but he has not really faced anyone who can actually throw a punch – I would possibly take Logan Paul out of that equation because he can fight a little.
This will not be a pretty fight to watch, it will be like two drunks throwing punches outside a pub on Saturday night.
Back this one to go the distance with Fury winning on points.
