KSI vs Tommy Fury CONFIRMED for October 14 on blockbuster Manchester double header bill… with Logan Paul set to fight on the SAME NIGHT

  • KSI and Tommy Fury square off on October 14 at the AO Arena, Manchester 
  • Logan Paul is joint-headling the card against a currently undisclosed opponent

KSI vs Tommy Fury has finally been made official after an arduous negotiation period.

The pair will square off on October 14 at the AO Arena in Manchester live on DAZN PPV.

Logan Paul is also expected to be on the double header bill although his opponent is yet to be announced. 

Announcing the news on social media, KSI wrote: ‘OCTOBER 14TH, I’m doing what Jake Paul couldn’t and beating Tommy Fury on the biggest night in crossover boxing history, at Manchester’s AO Arena, live on DAZN PPV on the PRIME CARD!’

For a time, it seemed as though the fierce rivals wouldn’t be facing each other this year after they butted heads over the proposed weight.

Fury demanded that the fight take place at 185lb while KSI affirmed he would agree to the weight if a rehydration clause was inserted into their contract.

He tweeted: ‘Tommy I wanna KO your a** so badly that I’ll come up in weight and do 185lbs if you agree to do the weigh in on the morning of fight day. Nice fair fight. If not you will forever be known as Tommy Ducky.’

In response, Fury said: ‘Here we go again guys, KSI going on about how it’s my fault the contract hasn’t been signed yet. 

‘Just a few things to clear up, KSI has only just agreed to do drug testing for this fight and now he’s complaining about the weight.

‘This fight is at 185lb, take it or leave it. I know you’re a midget and you’re worrying about the weight, but get some more food down you and you’ll get there.’

But an agreement has now been reached and the pair will square off at the back end of the year on Misfits Boxing’s PRIME card.

The weight and number of rounds are yet to be announced at the time of writing. 

This will be Fury’s first fight back since beating Jake Paul via split decision in February.

Meanwhile, KSI last fought in May against Joe Fournier. The British YouTube star was initially declared the winner via knockout but the decision was later overturned to a no contest due to an accidental elbow strike in the finishing sequence.
