KSI and Tommy Fury are SEPARATED as scuffle breaks out inside the ring after the YouTuber controversially knocks out Joe Fournier in second round… while ‘TNT’ ‘brawled with Idris Virgo’ in the crowd during the undercard

KSI and Tommy Fury had to be separated following the YouTuber’s stunning second round knockout victory against Joe Fournier on Saturday night.
In front of a sell out crowd at Wembley’s OVO Arena, KSI, also known as ‘The Nightmare’ continued his undefeated boxing record in somewhat controversial circumstances.
KSI struck the 40-year-old with what at first appeared to be an overhand shot, but the replays showed that his elbow appeared to illegally make contact with Fournier’s head.
The 29-year-old was still awarded the knockout and shortly after the fight ‘The Nightmare’ called out Fury, who had been sitting ringside.
Rising to his challenge, the former Love Island star stepped inside the ring and went nose-to-nose with KSI.

Security stepped in as the pair clashed heads inside the ring, with KSI claiming he ‘wanted to fight Fury’
‘I want this, I want to do what Jake Paul couldn’t; knock you out,’ KSI said, referencing Fury’s recent win against the American in Saudi Arabia.
Fury replied: ‘That’s never, ever gonna happen. All I can say is, sign me up. Easy money, easy money.
‘Sign me up, easy money. You’re going to sleep within four rounds.’
Things continued to bubble inside the ring, and while KSI’s record, having beaten Joe Weller, Logan Paul, Luis Alcaraz Pineda and Thomas Oliveira, remains unblemished, Fury questioned his fight against Fournier, claiming he still hasn’t fought an experienced professional.
KSI said: ‘People always say ‘KSI won’t be able to do it, he won’t be able to beat Jake or Logan Paul but I always prove them wrong’.
The 24-year-old responded, edging closer to him: ‘You didn’t beat a pro boxer tonight, I’m the pro boxer.
‘Jake Paul is already ticked off and you will be ticked off the list next, then Misfits is going to be over.’

Things then boiled over inside the ring before their entourage’s had to intervene to separate the pair.
But while Fury was not fighting tonight, he was also reportedly seen brawling outside the ring during the undercard for KSI’s bout.
The 24-year-old, who boasts a professional fight record of 9-0, again had to be separated by security as he and Virgo combined in a very unsavoury exchange outside of the ring.
It comes as Fury’s next opponent is yet to be confirmed, while Paul has previously insisted that he and the Brit ‘will have a rematch’, with the American set to fight Nate Diaz in August.
