KSI and Tommy Fury kicked off their prep bout for the latest celebrity blockbuster boxing match with an Argy Bargy duel.
Fury, who defeated KSI’s main rival Jake Paul in February, took a ringside seat at Wembley Arena to watch the YouTuber in action.
Both seemed to ignore the fact that the fight ended with Joe Fournier being knocked unconscious by an accidental but illegal punch.
They followed the script and faced each other in the ring for the first time – and agreed to a fight.
KSI, 29, said: “I want this, I want to do what Jake Paul couldn’t: KO you.”
Fury, 24, replied: “That will never happen. All I can say is sign up. Easy money, easy money.”
“You will sleep in four rounds. Four rounds, sleeping. Gung Ho, no defense, no head movement. Knocked out.”
Fournier, a 40-year-old nightclub tycoon-turned-fighter, was KSI’s first boxing-experienced opponent on paper.
But Fury, 24, was quick to discredit the legitimacy of the KSI win.
He said, “You know what? You didn’t hit a pro boxer tonight, I’m the pro boxer, let’s get this straight.”

“I’ve already ticked a name in Jake Paul, it’s done, it’s done and you’re ticked off.
“Like it or not, you will be upset and Misfits will end.”
KSI hits back: “Not a chance.” Before there was any head butting, the two apparently started shoving each other.
It remains to be seen if Fournier will be happy with his controversial loss, but KSI denied landing an illegal punch.
He said: “I hit him with a massive shot and he was dazed, he was trying desperately to hold me down.”
