John Fury wants KSI to pay him £200,000 for bet that was verbally agreed before Tommy Fury fight

John Fury is demanding a six-figure sum from KSI for a bet that was placed in the build-up to Saturday night's fight in Manchester.

After a close contest at the AO Arena, Tommy Fury was named a majority-decision winner in his bout against KSI before it was revealed that the scores had been added up incorrectly.

The 24-year-old was later awarded a unanimous-decision victory – a result that many have disagreed with, including KSI, who vowed to appeal the final result in an emotional post-fight interview.

Ahead of October 14, an extremely confident Fury was convinced he'd KO his opponent inside four rounds, and so was his father, John, who bet £200,000 on Tommy coming out on top.

As you can see in the clip below, a verbal agreement was made on YouTube channel Adin Live.

And now, a month later, John Fury has called on KSI to pay up after the YouTube personality and musician suffered the first defeat of his boxing career.

"This is a quick video for KSI," said Fury. "You owe me £200,000 pounds. We had a bet. I want paying. Now, don't be like the other fella, Jake Paul. Be a man and pay your bets.

"We had a bet, live on a podcast. We've got all the evidence. We'll put it all together. You owe me, John Fury, £200,000. I want paying. Thank you very much."

Tommy Fury has since dismissed KSI's suggestion that the result was a robbery.

“At the end of the day, he can say what he wants, but hugging and doing star jumps in the ring does not win a fight,” Fury said on Good Morning Britain.

“He can go on about how he was robbed, but it was his show [a Misfits event], his officials, his judges. So, are you saying that your own people, that you employed, robbed you?

It’s very hard to fight someone who doesn’t want to fight. I don’t know [about the chance of a rematch], we’re gonna see. But that was a horrible fight to be a part of. He didn’t wanna fight, he didn’t want to stand there and give the fans a good fight.

"He just wanted to make it awkward, look horrible and run around the ring for six rounds. It’s very irritating for someone like me, who wanted to get in there and have a proper fight.”
