KSI and Tommy Fury will finally come face to face under the lights next month.
The long-time rivals will step into the ring for the main event of the upcoming MF&DAZN: X Series Prime card.
Negotiations over a fight between the two took place for several months following Fury’s victory over Jake Paul.
After ‘TNT’ won, ‘The Nightmare’ KSI knocked out Joe Fournier, but the fight was ruled a no contest after he was ruled to have used an elbow in the knockout.
After that fight, KSI came face to face with Fury and called him out with talks beginning shortly after and the fight now being confirmed.
Logan Paul is also in the game that night and will face Conor McGregor’s training partner, Dillon Danis.
The latest press conference for the fight turned crazy as John Fury nearly started a riot by overturning the tables and destroying the set.

KSI vs Fury: What was said?
Speaking to Misfits Boxing, KSI said: “He will feel the pressure a lot more than against Jake Paul. I’m very intense and I show it in the ring.
“Tommy was able to walk after the fight with Jake. Tommy won’t walk after fighting me, no man will.
Fury added: “I already beat Jake Paul so all I have to do now is put this man to sleep.
“I’ll do this in four rounds. It’s easy money.
Paul gave his prediction for the fight and slammed KSI for his previous controversial victory.
Paul said: “I think Tommy knocks him out in less than five rounds.”
“I mean (KSI) has been doing these gimmick fights with WWE so far.
“Tommy is his first real test, but who knows, he might give Tommy a nudge too.”
