The rivalry between KSI and Tommy Fury is heating up as the two are set to face each other in a highly anticipated crossover boxing match on October 14 at Manchester Arena. The two have been exchanging insults and taunts on social media, but KSI seems to have hit a nerve with his latest post.
In 2019's Season 5 of Love Island, Tommy Fury was paid $255,256 to join the island. Fury dumped Millie Roberts after accepting the invitation to participate in the British dating reality show because he wanted "fame and money." Going to the reality show, he allegedly went against everything Roberts had previously claimed to stand for, including loyalty. Later, Roberts expressed on social media how trivial the unbeaten boxer had begun to treat their relationship.
On August 18, KSI tweeted to remind everyone what Fury had done as he tweeted an old Instagram Story from Millie Roberts who, after the breakup, wrote a paragraph that mentioned, “It’s mad what fame and money can do to people try and act like the whole relationship was nothing but okay Tommy, you do you.” KSI captioned this picture, “Tommy left his girl to go on Love Island.”
The tweet has received over 20,000 likes and many comments from fans. Some praised KSI for his savage trolling, while others criticized him for being disrespectful. Tommy Fury has not yet reacted to the tweet, but he may have a chance to confront KSI at the press conference scheduled for August 22 at Wembley Arena.
KSI and Tommy Fury have been at odds since Fury called out KSI after his split decision win over Jake Paul in February. KSI initially declined the challenge but later accepted it after his no-contest bout with Joe Fournier in May. The fight will be for the MF cruiserweight title and will be co-headlined by Logan Paul vs Dillon Danis.
