KSI Makes 'Generous' Offer To Save Jake Paul vs Tommy Fury Fight

KSI has given Jake Paul the chance to move his fight with Tommy Fury from August 6 to his own return card on August 27.


Paul's clash with Fury was thrown into doubt on Tuesday after Fury revealed he'd been denied entry to the United States for a pre-fight press conference.

The 23-year-old claims to have done 'absolutely nothing wrong' and he intends to appeal the decision. If a decision is not made, it means the fight will be called off for a second time.

YouTuber turned boxer KSI is set to return to the ring for the first time in nearly three years and he's come up with a solution.

He tweeted: "Clearly your card is dead in the water at this point. So lemme [sic] give you a lifeline.

"If you TRULY want to fight Tommy, fight on my card as the co-main event. I’ve got everything set up for you. Best believe you owe me though. Ball is in your court. #ItsAWinWin @tommytntfury."

KSI's opponent for his return bout is yet to be revealed.

The rapper then added: "You can bring [Amanda] Serrano with you too. Can’t say I’m not generous."

Serrano is signed to Paul's Most Valuable Promotions company and is set to defend her WBO, WBC and IBO titles against Brenda Carabajal in the co-main event alongside Paul vs Fury at Madison Square Garden.

Paul is unlikely to accept the offer given his rivalry with KSI, but he could quickly run out of options.

'The Problem Child' slammed Fury on Twitter immediately after the announcement and claimed he was trying to 'weasel' out of the contest.

He said: "Tommy, no matter how hard u [sic] try to get out of this fight, I’m going 2 [sic] do everything in my power 2 [sic] not let u [sic] weasel ur [sic] way out.

"My team & my partners have made it clear the steps u [sic] need to take 2 [sic] solve ur [sic] latest excuse. Take them or admit ur [sic] a scared little b**ch. #TommyFumbles."

The 25-year-old then retweeted messages from Most Valuable Promotions, which claim Fury had offered 'assurances' he would be allowed into the country.
