KSI and Tommy Fury will finally fight later this year after officially confirming their hugely-anticipated clash.
The long-term rivals will take to the ring for the main event of the upcoming MF&DAZN: X Series Prime card in October.
Negotiations over a fight between the two have been taking place over numerous months following Fury’s victory over Jake Paul.
Following ‘TNT’s statement win, ‘The Nightmare’ KSI knocked out Joe Fournier but the bout was ruled a No Contest after he was adjudged to have used an elbow in the KO.
After that fight, KSI stood face-to-face with Fury and called him out with talks beginning soon after and the bout now being confirmed.
Logan Paul is also on the card for the night and will come up against Conor McGregor’s training partner Dillon Danis.
The latest press conference for the fight descending into madness as John Fury almost started a riot by flipping tables and destroying the set.

KSI vs Fury: What has been said?
Speaking after the announcement, KSI said: “I came back to boxing to show the world the crazy levels I’m at.
“I’ve shown through obliterating all my past opponents that I am the best in this scene.
“KO after KO has now led me to the toughest fight in the influencer boxing scene.
“I’m fighting Tommy Fury. The man that defeated the once undefeated Jake Paul is now my opponent and I can’t wait to silence all the doubters that believe I have no chance.
“After this fight, you’ll understand that I truly am that guy.”
Fury added: “I’ve already beaten Jake Paul and so all that is left for me to do is send this man to sleep.
“I’ll do that inside four rounds. This is easy money.”
Paul has given his prediction for the fight and took a jibe at KSI for his previous controversial win.
Paul said: “I think Tommy knocks him out in like less than five rounds.”
“I mean [KSI] is doing these gimmick WWE fights up until now.
“Tommy is his first real test, but who knows, he might throw an elbow on Tommy, too.”
