KSI vs. Tommy Fury Headlines 'Judgement Day' Boxing Card in Manchester
This weekend, the highly anticipated ‘Judgement Day’ boxing card is set to electrify fans in Manchester, featuring a showdown between KSI and Tommy Fury. KSI, a renowned YouTube sensation and co-founder of the boxing promotion company Misfits, is confident that this event has the potential to become the “biggest of the decade.”
The Manchester Arena will host this epic clash, as both fighters put their undefeated records on the line in front of a global audience numbering in the millions. ‘Judgement Day’ boasts a lineup of ten exciting preliminary bouts leading up to the main event, one of which features KSI’s business partner, Logan Paul, taking on MMA star Dillon Danis.
Misfits, founded in 2022, is staging its 11th event with ‘Judgement Day.’ Reports suggest that this fight could achieve over two million pay-per-view sales during the weekend. For context, the highest-selling fight this year was the Gervonta Davis vs. Ryan Garcia matchup in April, with Fury’s previous bout against fellow social media sensation Jake Paul coming in second.
Despite the highly anticipated Tyson Fury’s historic undisputed heavyweight bout with Oleksandr Usyk scheduled for December, KSI, a 30-year-old British boxer, believes that his card might become the most viewed of the decade.
Speaking about Misfits’ aspirations, KSI shared, “The goal for Misfits is to make it the home of boxing for professionals or YouTube boxers, I want it all in that zone. It is going to take a while, but I feel like with the Prime card, we are doing amazingly with that. With that whole card, it’s not just the main event and no one cares; every single fight everyone is excited for. This could be the most viewed card of the whole year, if not the whole decade. It’s just that big with so many YouTubers and so many eyes being able to see this thing – it could be humongous.”
