KSI costing Tony Bellew 'a fortune' as former world champion makes Tommy Fury prediction
| Last updated
Tony Bellew has made his prediction for KSI and Tommy Fury's highly-anticipated fight on Saturday.
Most are expecting the 24-year-old to have too much for the KSI to handle, with Fury currently the favourite with most bookmakers.
As anticipation continues to build, a star-studded sea of celebrities are expected to be in attendance at the AO Arena.
Former cruiserweight world champion and now retired pro boxer Tony Bellew expects former Love Island star Fury to come out on top but believes it would be a close fight.
Speaking to luckyblock.com, Bellew said: "I think Logan Paul beats Dillon Danis and Tommy should win, but I think this will be the hardest fight of his career because JJ (KSI) has something about him where he will just let his hands go. Jake Paul wouldn’t let his hands go but I think KSI will.
"So while I’m predicting a win for Tommy Fury, it’s not with any real certainty. It’s only a six-round fight, so I think they might both just let their hands go.
“Tommy should win. He’s the one with the professional boxing licence. I give JJ so much credit because he’s just such a hard working kid. I’ve had a conversation with him and Eddie Hearn on a podcast and I was intrigued by him.
"They’re paying fighters absolute fortunes with their Prime drink and I’m so impressed that they’re giving back to the fighters and I can't credit him enough.
"That Prime drink costs me a fortune because my kids love it!”
