Major rule change for KSI vs Tommy Fury boxing fight just two weeks before bitter rivals clash in Manchester | The Sun
KSI vs Tommy Fury will reportedly be a professional fight.
The October 14 clash was initially advertised as an exhibition bout – just as each of KSI's last five fights have been.
But Boxrec are now listing KSI vs Fury as a pro fight, with KSI laughing in response to fans realising the change.
The YouTuber has vowed to end Fury's career and a first professional loss for the former Love Island star would be a significant setback.
However, the British Boxing Board of Control is yet to sanction the six-round match-up as a professional fight.
KSI, 30, has only had one pro bout to date – his first meeting with Logan Paul in November 2019, which he won via split decision.

While Fury has won each of his nine pro fights, most recently defeating Jake Paul on points in February.
He has claimed he is a "caped crusader" in the build-up to the fight, suggesting he will put an end to YouTuber boxing.
Fury, 24, said: “I’m like kind of the ‘caped crusader’ of all this YouTube boxing. They all want to see me come in and destroy these guys.
“But one’s already been done. This one will be done in a matter of weeks, and then it’s on to the next challenge.
