Conor McGregor drops the spiciest take on KSI vs Tommy Fury, he kept it real

Conor McGregor has offered his thoughts on the highly-anticipated boxing match between KSI and Tommy Fury.

McGregor, a former UFC Double Champ, is no stranger to high-profile fights, having previously dipped his toes into the mysterious world of boxing to fight undefeated Floyd Mayweather, reportedly earning himself nearly $100 million in the process.

And the Irishman has admitted he will be keeping an eye on KSI's showdown with Tommy Fury which takes place in Manchester on October 14.

The blockbuster bill also sees Logan Paul face off against Dillon Danis in the co-main event, which has taken on a whole new level after Danis posted photos of Paul's fiancé Nina Agdal on social media.



Paul vs Danis is a six-round exhibition while KSI vs Fury will reportedly play out as a professional bout after originally being advertised as an exhibition. That's according to BoxRec which has listed Fury's fight against KSI as a professional contest.

Speaking in a brief interview with Seconds Out, McGregor not only admitted he was "interested" to watch how the fight would unfold, but hinted at a potential fight with either KSI or Fury.

“I’m interested to see it, I’m looking forward to watching it. I have my eye on all of them."


However, in typical McGregor fashion, he refused to give either fighter too much credit, adding: “They’re Nixers to me, yeah. Side hustles, yeah.”

Fans have theorised that their could be a fight between McGregor and KSI after 'The Notorious' called out the internet sensation during Anthony Joshua's win over Robert Helenius in August.

Taking to the ring, McGregor bizarrely challenged KSI to a bareknuckle fight, shouting: "I know your man KSI is in the crowd, yeah.

"He couldn’t box eggs if he worked in an egg boxing factory. So, if he wants to get in here, we’ll give him a fight - bare-knuckle if you want."
