KSI vs. Tommy Fury: Tony Bellew makes his predictionMisfits Boxing
KSI and Tommy Fury have got the entire boxing world talking.

Another weekend on DAZN and we’re getting another big fight and it’s a fight that has got everybody talking. KSI vs. Tommy Fury is set to be a huge event and although it takes on a different tag than the more traditional version of the sport, there’s no denying that the organisers of this event have done a great job in making it a huge spectacle. 

Earlier this year, we saw Fury get the biggest win of his short career when he beat Jake Paul with the whole world watching. The win showed me that Fury’s extra experience in the boxing ring and the pedigree he has through his family will always give him an advantage in these crossover fights and I expect that to happen this Saturday night too. 

Fury should always be the favourite when he appears in these types of contests. He’s been ranked as a professional, has fought as a professional and he’s prepared like one since turning over. KSI has done a lot of good things since deciding to become a fighter and you can tell he doesn’t cut any corners, but that pro experience will always be an advantage to Fury when he’s competing against guys who are just starting out. 

One thing I like about KSI is his confidence. Believe me when I say this, he’ll have no fear of Fury whatsoever and he’ll let his hands go from the opening bell. That was the one main criticism I had of Jake Paul when he fought Fury earlier in the year. He had opportunities to stamp his authority on the fight, but he was nowhere near busy enough. KSI won’t make that mistake. 

I’ve seen that KSI is a big underdog for this but let me tell you that he’s very much a live underdog and him winning wouldn’t shock me at all. This is still Fury’s fight to lose because a lot of things are in his favour, but if KSI can make a good start and get Fury’s respect, we could be looking at a big upset and one that Fury would find it hard to recover from. 

The safe bet is for Fury to get the job done. The Jake Paul win should have given him a lot of confidence when it comes to fights of this nature, and he may even consider this an easier fight. I don't think it’ll be easy for as long as KSI stays busy and take chances, but it’ll be Fury who picks up the win as he completes a huge year by defeating two of the biggest influencers on the planet.
