Amidst the chaos surrounding Jake Paul and Tommy Fury’s scheduled August 6 fight, KSI could be here to save the day.
Excitement around this announcement quickly turned to despair after Fury was prevented from flying out to America for the pre-fight press conference, just days after his brother, Tyson, was banned from entering the US.
This has put the fight in serious jeopardy and it looks like it could fall through for a second time, after the pair had previously been scheduled to clash in December last year, but Fury was forced to pull out due to injury and illness.
Paul took to Twitter to make it clear that he would not allow Fury to pull out again, as he said, “Tommy, no matter how hard u try to get out of this fight, I’m going 2 do everything in my power 2 not let u weasel ur way out.
“My team & my partners have made it clear the steps u need to take 2 solve ur latest excuse. Take them or admit ur a scared little b****.”
One of Paul’s long-time rivals, KSI, who fights on his own card on August 27, replied to the younger Paul brother on Twitter, saying, “Clearly your card is dead in the water at this point.
“So lemme 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.”
KSI then followed up by offering to also host seven-weight world champion, Amanda Serrano, who is supposed to be fighting against Brenda Karen Carabajal in the co-main event of Paul vs Fury.
“Can bring Serrano with you too. Can’t say I’m not generous.” KSI said.
It is difficult, however, to see this as a sincere offer from KSI to Paul, as the pair do not have a particularly friendly history and it seems more that the Brit is taunting his American counterpart for his fight potentially collapsing rather than offering a genuine solution,
