The scorecards for Tommy Fury’s controversial win over KSI have raised questions over whether the correct result was announced on Saturday evening.
In a scrappy six-round fight at the Manchester Arena, Fury was handed the victory over KSI with one judge scoring it a 57-57 draw, while the other two scored the contest 57-56.
However, the scorecards for the fight which were subsequently shared on Instagram show that one judge incorrectly added up his tally.
Rafael Ramos scored the fight a 57-57 draw, but the round-by-round tally on his scorecard shows that he only awarded 56 points in total to KSI and 57 points to Fury, meaning that Fury should have technically won by unanimous decision.
Questions have also been raised over the scoring of the second round, with two judges scoring it 9-9 after Fury had a point deducted for punching KSI on the back of the head. Ramos scored it a 10-8 round in favour of KSI.
KSI was livid after his defeat and insisted that he will appeal the decision.
‘Robbery. It’s a robbery,’ KSI said.
KSI then told Fury in the ring: ‘How many jabs did you land? You got hardly any shots off.
‘Look at your face, look at your eyes. I’m the YouTuber and you’re the boxer, you have to win.
‘The amount of times he hit me in the back of the head and the referee only gave one point, and he was doing it over and over.
‘It’s outrageous. We’re gonna appeal. We need to appeal. I feel like I won that.’
Fury, however, was adamant that he will not grant KSI a rematch.
‘He goes his way and I go mine,’ Fury said.
‘I’m done with all this, this crossover, I’m here to fight and we go onto the next challenge now.’
