Eddie Hearn gives straight answer when asked who won between KSI and Tommy Fury, it's telling
| Last updated
Eddie Hearn has revealed who he thinks won the controversial fight between KSI and Tommy Fury last night.
Fury beat KSI by majority decision in the main-event of the bumper Misfits Boxing card on Saturday.
That's despite being deducted a point in the second round for another punch to the back of his opponent's head.
An error on the scorecards has since been spotted following the contentious decision.
KSI fumed at the scorecards after the bout and wants to appeal the result.
"It's a robbery, how many jabs did he land? I'm the YouTuber, you're the boxer, I understand, you have to win," he said immediately after the six-round clash. "I want to appeal."
DAZN CEO Joe Markowski agreed with KSI's robbery claim and the influencer also has the backing of Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn.
Speaking after the fight, Hearn was asked whether the right man won the main-event contest to which he replied: "No, he [Fury] had a point deducted.
"KSI won the fight."
The 30-year-old's last two bouts have ended in controversial fashion, having had his win over Joe Fournier overturned to a no-contest following an elbow in the finishing sequence - and now his narrow defeat to Fury.
A rematch between KSI and Fury could be explored, but the unbeaten professional boxer vowed to leave crossover boxing, before opening the door for a potential fight against the Paul brothers.
"A lot went on in the build-up. I'm done with this crossover sh*t," he told Ariel Helwani in the ring.
However, he then added: "Any of the Pauls want it, I welcome it with open arms."
