Almost everyone from the boxing world will be tuning in for the upcoming clash between KSI and Tommy Fury; everyone has mixed opinions on the outcome of this event. The former heavyweight champion David Haye is one of the few who can foresee KSI claiming a win against Tommy Fury.
KSI has something that most YouTube boxers lack, and that's speed and explosiveness. Some people criticize his fighting technique, and some truly admire it. On 14th October, we will find out if KSI has what it takes to cause permanent damage to the reputation of the Fury family.
David Haye on KSI vs Tommy Fury
In a recent interview with Mirror Fighting, David Haye shared his thoughts on KSI vs Tommy Fury and explained why he thinks KSI will win the match. "I think KSI will beat Tommy," Haye said, as quoted by boxingscence.com.
"I think Tommy will underestimate him, he will believe as he said throughout the whole campaign that he is not a real boxer but I think he's better than he's ever been before. I actually think the best of [KSI] still has yet to be seen, the last fight with the elbow that knocked out Joe Fournier there's not much you can take from that fight but I've been assured there's plenty more to come and it will be a massive, massive upset for boxing.
Haye further said: "He's going to embarrass a hell of a lot of people. Tommy's a massive favorite and people think he's the real fighter whose big brother is the heavyweight champ and he's doing it since he's a kid. He comes from a fighting family so for him to lose to someone considered a YouTuber in these fights that a lot of people don't give much credibility to, it will be pretty hard for him to bounce back".
