‘The Nightmare’ had picked up a succession of wins heading into his most recent bout, against Joe Fournier in May, which he won on the night but later saw ruled as a no contest following the use of an elbow.
Fury, meanwhile, is coming off a fairly unimpressive win against Jake Paul in February, but he has insisted he has learned lessons from that performance and will produce a more far ruthless performace tonight.
For ‘TNT’, the younger brother of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson, the risks are very similar. A defeat would be hugely embarrassing given his genuine boxing background, even if KSI’s awkward style will be something he will not have faced in his time as a professional.
After months of verbal sparring which continued with some fiery exchanges at the public workout, it’s going to be a huge night of action.

KSI vs Tommy Fury fight prediction
It is difficult to look past Fury here, even if he did not totally convince against Paul. He boasts a much broader boxing background and is a major step up in class for KSI, there’s little getting away from that.
While the first-round knockout he is predicting seems unlikely, a comfortable points decision should be achievable for him.
