Tommy Fury defeats KSI on points
Tommy Fury beat YouTuber KSI on a points decision in their bout at the AO Arena in Manchester on Saturday.
In a six-round cruiserweight bout that lacked technical quality, both boxers landed few clean shots. Fury was also deducted a point in the second round for a blow to the back of KSI’s head.
Of the three judges, one scored it 57-57, while the other two ruled it as 57-56 to Fury, with KSI calling the decision a “robbery” in his post-fight interview.
