David Haye reveals shock fight prediction for KSI, Jake Paul and Tommy Fury as boxing legend is left ‘really impressed’

DAVID HAYE revealed his shock prediction for fights between KSI, Jake Paul and Tommy Fury.

Haye was a ringside spectator as his friend and former opponent Joe Fournier faced KSI.

And although the bout ended in controversy as Fournier was knocked out by an elbow, the British boxing legend was still left impressed.

He told Seconds Out: “I think he [KSI] knocks Tommy Fury out, real easy.

“Off the strength of that. And Jake Paul as well, I think he beats both of them.

“Off the strength of those first two rounds and the elbow, if he’s allowed to chuck elbows, what you going to do?

“Even without the elbow, the shots he was throwing were vert, very crisp. Timing was right, to step back, it was just very, very classy.

“I liked it and I just think that styles that he’s doing is very unorthodox, it’s so very different to what anyone does in traditional boxing.”

Replays revealed KSI landed an accidental but illegal elbow which looked to have caused the KO.

Despite the post-fight footage revealing the brutal blow, the win still stood causing Fournier, 40, to threaten action against organisers.


And now the Professional Boxing Association – who sanctioned the bout – confirmed to SunSport that Fournier has appealed the loss.

KSI, 29, is ready to accept the win being overturned to a no-contest but has no intention to rematch Fournier.

He told MMA Fighting: “I’m at peace with a no-contest. I don’t really mind because, for me, I’m a fair guy.

“If it is a no-contest, it’s a no-contest. It is what it is. I don’t need a win. For me, the reason I came back was to knock out Jake Paul.

“These are all just side quests to get to Jake Paul, but now I can indirectly destroy Jake Paul’s legacy by beating Tommy Fury.”

Fury, 24, beat Paul, 26, by split-decision in Saudi Arabia in February and as a result KSI is now targeting a fight with him.
