Boxing 2023: Tommy Fury vs KSI result changed after scorecard counting blunder

Fans have branded the KSI vs Tommy Fury fight a “bit fishy” after the wrong result was announced due to a judge adding up his own card incorrectly.

Fury was awarded a majority decision victory with scores of 56-57, 56-57 and 57-57 being announced.

But Fury should have actually won via unanimous decision, with judge Rafael James wrongly totting up his score as 57-57, even though he had marked the contest 56-57 in Fury’s favour.

The result has now been changed so the record shows Fury won via unanimous decision, not majority decision.

James scored four rounds to Fury and two to KSI, but miscalculated the YouTuber’s overall tally so his scorecard read 57-57, leading to the wrong result being announced.

However some fans were still not convinced and felt Fury did not do enough to win four rounds, which he required due to a point deduction in the second round for punching KSI in the back of the head.

One fan said: “I can’t see how the second round was scored to Tommy, nor can I get behind that third judge’s mathematics. Fishy situation this like.”

Another added: “Very suspect scorecards.”

A third wrote: “Again, proof in the putting that he was robbed.”

And another commented: “How can you give a 10-8 round to Tommy it’s getting overturned.”

KSI, 30, has called for a rematch and intends to appeal the result, claiming he was “robbed” as Fury barely landed a punch.

But Fury appears to have no intention of facing the YouTuber again after promising he is done with crossover boxing, but he called out Jake and Logan Paul for a fight.

Logan defeated Dillon Danis after the latter was disqualified for attempting an MMA-style takedown.

The fight descended into chaos after the final bell as security had to enter the ring to stop Danis lunging for Logan, with the MMA star aiming a punch at a security guard.

Meanwhile Jake, who was in his brother’s corner, labelled rival KSI a sore loser following his defeat.

He said: “HAHAHAHA KSI SORE LOSER CHOKING UP.

“Only thing that got robbed is his hair line It’s okay KSI me too it’s gonna be okay bubba.

“I took my loss like a man from the scorecard read and showed the youth how to learn from it and come back to take a W.

“This 30 year old man crying for an appeal.”
