KSI AGREES to Tommy Fury’s ‘take-it-or-leave it’ fight offer… but YouTube star has controversial demand

KSI has agreed to Tommy Fury’s take-it-or-leave-it fight offer – but with one condition.

The celebrity couple were locked in negotiations for an all-British fight in Manchester.

But KSI spoke up and cast doubt on the fight by revealing inconsistencies in weighting.

He accused Fury of trying to switch the weight from 180lbs to 185lbs and admitted it could be axed because of that.

And on Instagram, Fury hit back: “Now he’s complaining about the weight. This fight is 185 whether you do it or not.”

So KSI seemed to bite the bullet and put up with the weight—as long as there’s a weigh-in a day.

He tweeted, “Tommy I want to blow your mind so bad I’ll gain weight and hit 185 pounds 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.”

KSI’s last fight against nightclub tycoon and 9-0 boxer Joe Fournier weighed in at 180 pounds.

But there was a 10-pound rehydration clause, meaning the two couldn’t weigh more than 190 pounds at the second weigh-in just hours before the fight.


KSI, 30, knocked out Fournier, 40, with an accidental but illegal elbow strike, resulting in a no-contest result.

But a rematch was turned down so he could focus his attention on 24-year-old Fury, who defeated KSI’s YouTube rival Jake Paul, 26, in Saudi Arabia in February.

Fury is yet to respond to KSI’s rehydration clause but originally had until Monday to sign the fight contract.
