Tommy Fury Vs KSI: The Next Big Match?

John discussed his son’s next opponent: “Well, we aren’t sure. I have been in talks with the Sauerland brothers [Kalle and Wilfried] about a possible match-up with their man KSI. I had a meeting with them the other day and it went well. Let’s see what happens.”

“I am still waiting to hear from them. But they did text me the other day saying they are really busy and they are on it. If it can be done, we will do it. Whoever else wants to box Tommy, ring the number and get in touch. I don’t deal with the Jake Paul rematch. I am on a rest period and I have just left that to my lawyer. But I’m sure if it can be done, we can do it,” he further added.

During his appearance on Soccer AM last weekend, ‘TNT’ expressed uncertainty about an immediate rematch with Paul. The Love Island star stated that he is willing to fight his long-time rival anytime, but he’s not sure if Paul wants the bout now.

Fury mentioned that he’s on top of the hill, and it’s his call to make. He also hinted that his next fight would be more significant than a rematch with Paul, saying there are many meetings going on.

‘The Problem Child’ too has signed with PFL and expressed interest in pursuing an MMA career. With so many potential options for both rising athletes, do you think we will ever see a rematch? Let us know in the comments.
