KSI and Tommy Fury punch stats revealed after controversial judges' decision

KSI and Tommy Fury punch stats revealed after controversial judges' decision

Tommy Fury beat KSI to move to 10-0 with a controversial win at the Manchester Arena.

The punch stats for Tommy Fury's controversial win over KSI have been revealed and show just how close the fight was.

After beating Jake Paul in Saudi Arabia, Fury moved to 10-0 by beating another YouTuber-turned boxer in the massive Misfits Boxing main event at the AO Arena in Manchester.

The six-round bout went the distance and the result was determined by the judges, who gave it to Fury via majority decision despite him having one point docked for a rabbit punch in the second round.

An incensed KSI felt as though he won the fight and said he would appeal the "outrageous" decision after feeling he was "robbed".

He also had the backing of DAZN head honcho Joe Markowski and Matchroom chief Eddie Hearn.

Fury appeared to be the one who engaged the most but there was not much in it in terms of the official punch stats.

'TNT' threw 159 punches in the direction of KSI, with 39 connecting. 'The Nightmare' attempted 124 overall and landed 38.

He therefore had a better success rate, with 31% to 25%.

There has been talk of a rematch being on the cards given the close encounter and contentious decision.

Fury was quick to tell fans he now wishes to move away from the influencer boxing world after his brief foray into it but did then add he would welcomed a tare-up with either of the Paul brothers.

Meanwhile, KSI, took to X to break his silence on his first professional loss and reflected on what he achieved inside the squared circle.

He wrote: "Appreciate all the kind messages from everyone. In the ring and watching it back I feel like I should have won. Either way I feel like I accomplished what I wanted to in the end.

"This little untalented nerd was able go toe to toe with a professional boxer.

"Use me as the living proof that hard work and self belief can get you anywhere in this life."
