KSI's head coach caught giving him controversial advice in between rounds against Tommy Fury

KSI's coach has been caught giving him controversial advice in the corner during his fight against Tommy Fury last Saturday.

Fury outpointed KSI as he was awarded a majority decision on fight night before the result was overturned to a unanimous decision after an error was spotted on the scorecards.

The 24-year-old got the judges' nod despite having a point deducted in the second round for another shot punch to the back of his opponent's head.

KSI's corner were adamant he'd repeat his offence as his head coach insisted the fighter to 'stay in the clinch'.

A video has emerged online of London Shootfighters head coach Alexis Aemetriades telling KSI he's 'up on all the rounds' before instructing him to clinch Fury.

"You're up on all the rounds and he's got a point deducted," he can be heard saying.

"Stay in the clinch with him and make him... he'll hit you on the back of the head again. We know he will."

The plan didn't work as Fury edged out KSI on the scorecards, with the punch stats making for interesting reading.

After the result, the influencer fumed at the decision. Speaking immediately after the six-round contest ended, he said: “It’s a robbery. How many jabs did he land? You didn’t get hardly any shots off. You weren’t landing! Look at your face, look at your eyes. Look at you! I’m the YouTuber, you’re the boxer, you have to win. I understand. It’s all good.

“[I won rounds] 1, 2, 3 and a point off. How do I lose a six rounder? Unreal. He’s the man that’s meant to be a pro boxer and he won a majority decision. It’s outrageous.”

Fury vowed he wanted to leave crossover boxing but said he would be open to facing the Paul brothers.

"A lot went on in the build-up. I'm done with this cross-over sh*t," he said in the ring after his victory.

However, he then added: "Any of the Pauls want it, I welcome it with open arms."
