KSI releases statement after ‘tarnished win’ over Joe Fournier

Posted by

The YouTuber took to social media to address last night’s controversial KO of Joe Fournier.

He Tweeted:

‘I worked very hard for this fight and had an intense and grueling camp. There’s no better feeling than being in that ring and having my hand raised in front of my loyal and amazing fans who I appreciate so much. 

Unfortunately the victory which was inevitable no matter what, is tarnished and I hate that. It sucks!

After landing my overhand he was pretty much out on his feet and I went for a short right hook as Joe clinched me and fell into me. I landed that hook and my glove made contact but appears to have been followed by unintentional contact with my forearm. I’m gutted that it’s not as clean a win as I wanted and it feels like it diminishes my hard work with my trainers. 

Either way I hope you enjoyed the show and appreciate the support. Sorry to all the fans disappointed with it. No one is more so than me.’
