Tommy Fury and KSI will fight in Manchester on 14 October, with both, unsurprisingly, predicting wins for themselves.

Fury (9-0) last beat YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul in February and is looking to add another social media star to his record.

KSI is just 1-0 as a professional, with his victory coming over Logan Paul, while he has picked up wins in exhibition and amateur bouts.

The 30-year-old last fought Joe Fournier in an exhibition in May, originally announced as a KO win for KSI but later ruled a no contest due to an accidental elbow.

On the fight announcement, KSI tweeted: ‘OCTOBER 14TH, I’m doing what Jake Paul couldn’t and beating Tommy Fury on the biggest night in crossover boxing history, at Manchester’s AO Arena, live on DAZN PPV on the PRIME CARD!’

Fury added on Instagram: ‘OCTOBER 14TH…. You’re getting knocked out in front of my home crowd. This is gonna be fun.’

Logan Paul is also expected to be on the card at the Manchester Arena, although his opponent is yet to be announced.

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 predicted the fight would not last four rounds, saying: ‘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.’
