KSI vs Tommy Fury Prediction
Standing at a height of 183 cm, both fighters share an equal stature. However, the parity ends there, as Tyson Fury boasts a significant reach advantage, measuring 203 cm, a remarkable 10 cm longer than KSI’s reach of 193 cm. Fury also enjoys a 10 cm advantage in the ape index over his opponent.
KSI enters the ring with an unblemished record of 1-0, his last bout occurring 5 months and 1 day ago against Joe Fournier, which ultimately concluded in a no-contest.
On the other hand, Fury arrives with a pristine record of 9-0 (including 4 KOs), his most recent match transpiring 7 months and 18 days ago against Jake Paul. In that contest, Fury secured a victory via an 8-round split decision.
Tommy has proven that he’s now able to stand in front of the bright lights and take on bigger challenges such as Jake Paul. Although, Paul isn’t taking on elite boxers – instead, his boxing resume is mostly retired MMA fighters.
That being said he has proven himself as a legit pro-boxer at this point and has Tommy a good challenge. By testing the wits and chin of the younger Fury, who answered back with crisp boxing and timed his shots his cleaning win by decision over the problem child.
I expect this last win to give Tommy the added confidence as he steps inside the squared circle to take on KSI.
KSI started off his boxing run back in 2018, with an amateur and then pro-boxing bout against Logan Paul. After securing a split decision win over Paul, KSI moved onto exhibition fights in the UK winning three straight in a row, until his most recent win over Joe Fournier was classified as a no-contest after KSI’s KO blow was ruled an elbow.
KSI’s flashy style which uses almost an MMA stance, could cause Fury some issues with closing the distance. However, when it comes to exchanges Fury will have the advantage with his precision and in-ring boxing IQ.
Betting on KSI vs Fury over the course of six-rounds means the chances of the fight going the distance are much higher. I can see a chance here where Fury gets KSI out of there within six rounds, but my money is that Fury will win a definitive fight by decision.
Betting Pick: Fury by Decision.
