Shocking footage posted to social media shows Tommy Fury brawling with Love Islander-turned-boxer Idris Virgo in the crowd during the undercard for KSI’s knockout victory over Joe Fournier on Saturday
Tommy Fury’s angry fight with Idris Virgo at ringside during the KSI fight against Joe Fournier has been revealed by a shocking video on social media.
Fury, the half-brother of WBC world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, was on hand to watch YouTuber KSI fight British businessman Joe Fournier at Wembley’s OVO Arena on Saturday night.
KSI recorded a stunning second-round knockout victory over Fournier to continue his undefeated boxing record, and then “The Nightmare” called out Fury, who was sitting at ringside.
Accepting his challenge, the former Love Island TV star stepped into the ring and came face to face with KSI – but it wasn’t his first fight of the night.
Footage posted online shows exactly how the fight started, with Fury rising to meet the challenge of Love Island-turned-boxer Virgo before they began pushing and shoving aggressively.

Security was forced to intervene, with dozens of guards wading through the crowd in an attempt to separate the pair, largely unsuccessfully, in a highly unsavory exchange outside the ring.
KSI’ won had come under controversial circumstances. The revealing blow hit Fournier, 40, with what at first appeared to be an overhand blow, but replays showed his elbow seemed illegally come into contact with Fournier’s head.
When confronting Fury inside the ring, KSI said, “I want this, I want to do what Jake Paul couldn’t: knock you out,” referring to Fury’s recent win over the American in Saudi Arabia.
Fury replied: ‘That will never, ever happen. All I can say is, sign me up. Easy money, easy money. Sign me up, easy money. You will sleep in four rounds.
Things continued to bubble up 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 , saying he still hasn’t fought an experienced professional.
KSI said: “People always say ‘KSI can’t do it, he can’t beat Jake or Logan Paul but I always prove them wrong’.
The 24-year-old responded by stepping closer to him: “You didn’t beat a pro boxer tonight, I’m the pro boxer.” Jake Paul is already checked off and then you will be checked off the list and then Misfits will be over.
Things then boiled over inside the ring before their entourages had to intervene to separate the duo. It comes as Fury’s next opponent has yet to be confirmed, while Paul has previously insisted he and the Brit “will get a rematch”, with the American set to fight Nate Diaz in August.
