KSI and Tommy Fury Prepared to Battle It Out
After Tommy Fury's split-decision victory over Jake Paul in Saudi Arabia, he is gearing up to face KSI in what is being called the biggest bout in crossover boxing history. Meanwhile, KSI, one of the pioneers of the crossover boxing trend, is ready to go head to head with Fury on October 14 in Manchester.
A Look at KSI's Net Worth
KSI, a London-based superstar, made his name on YouTube before venturing into the worlds of sports, music, and business. With two albums under his belt, including a chart-topping hit, and his involvement in the ring, KSI has seen significant success. He also founded Misfits Boxing, which features crossover-style fights between sports and celebrity stars. However, his most lucrative venture to date has been launching the Prime hydration drink in partnership with Logan Paul. Although his exact net worth remains undisclosed, Forbes reported that he made £19.7 million in 2023 alone.
A Look at Fury's Net Worth
Tommy Fury, only 24 years old, entered the sport of boxing following in the footsteps of his older brother, Tyson Fury, the heavyweight champion. However, it was his appearance on the popular reality TV show Love Island in 2019 that catapulted him to national fame. Fury's rising popularity led to a highly anticipated battle with Jake Paul, where he is believed to have made around £4 million. Now, he is set to earn a reported £1.5 million for his fight against KSI.
Purse Details Still Under Wraps
While the exact fight purses for both KSI and Fury remain unknown, it is rumored that KSI's deal includes pay-per-view bonuses, which means his earnings will depend on the box office receipts. On the other hand, Dillon Danis, who will be fighting on the undercard, has claimed that both he and Fury are being paid a fixed amount. However, there has been some controversy surrounding the money offered to Fury, with KSI's manager dismissing the claims as "absolute nonsense."
