KSI is another influencer/social media star who has turned towards the boxing ring. Originally a rapper and a Youtuber, KSI has started a boxing promotion Misfits Boxing, which holds PPV events on DAZN.
Since starting his own promotions, KSI has positioned himself to headline the events. In the first event by Misfits Boxing, he fought two fighters on the same night and won both fights. He is actively seeking fights against other celebrity boxers or MMA fighters and has managed to generate significant interest. So, who will KSI fight next? Check below for the complete details.
Who will KSI Fight Next?
KSI is set to face Tommy Fury in his next fight. The pair had a face-off and an altercation after KSI defeated Joe Fournier in their fight in May 2023. Even before this fight took place, KSI had announced that his team was negotiating the fight against Tommy Fury.
KSI said in an interview to Misfits Boxing that the deal for this fight was almost done. Fury’s father John Fury also confirmed that this fight is almost complete and that KSI had already started training for an eight rounds bout. Later on June 30, KSI revealed that the bout was in danger as Fury was asking for a change of contracted weight from 180 lbs to 185 lbs.
KSI had given Fury a deadline of Monday, July 3, to sign the contract. By the evening of July 3, the news came out that both fighters have now agreed on terms and an announcement was shortly due. The fight was ultimately confirmed at the start of August.
Tommy Fury would be the second most experienced boxer in a row that KSI would be facing, but the first real threat to his unbeaten record. Fury has recently handed Jake Paul his first career defeat, and he would look to do the same to KSI also. Fury holds a 9-0 record in professional boxing while he also has one exhibition appearance.
KSI Next Fight Date
KSI is announced to fight next on October 14, 2023, in Manchester, UK, at MF Boxing’s X Series: The Prime Card.
