Tommy called Youtube boxing “a joke” ahead of his proposed fight with KSI

Tommy Fury has vowed to end influencer boxing within 12 months. The professional boxer and former Love Island contestant called Youtube boxing “a joke” ahead of his proposed fight with KSI. 

He told Sky Sports: "Everybody knows what's next for me, it's being teased at the minute. Hopefully we can get this KSI fight over the line and I'll knock off another YouTuber. That's my plan for this year. I want to end YouTube boxing within 12 months. So that's my plan. So we'll see."

When asked who else on the Youtube boxing scene he plans to fight, Tommy said he didn’t have anyone particular in mind, as “there’s not one who stands out from the rest.”.

KSI was last in the ring in May in what turned out to be a no-contest after an accidental but illegal elbow knocked out Joe Fournier. He went face to face with Tommy after, and both have confirmed that a fight will take place.

Tommy said: "I've said my hitlist. Jake Paul's already been struck off, KSI is next. Then from what I've seen the other day Jake Paul wants it again in February. Listen, I'm happy. I'm happy keep these fights rolling in."

In May, Jake also confirmed that he wanted a rematch with Tommy following Tommy’s triumph when the two fought in Saudi Arabia in February. The Youtuber-turned boxer is due to face Nate Diaz on 5 August but has his sights set on a rematch against Fury after enormous interest in their initial meeting. 

While the Love Island star’s proposed fight with KSI is seemingly confirmed, it is unclear when the fight will be taking place.
