Tommy Fury brawls with fellow Love Island contestant in the crowd at KSI fight

Tommy Fury traded blows with a fellow former Love Island contestant on Saturday after a fight erupted in the crowd at KSI’s fight with Joe Fournier.

The fight happened midway through the undercard after Anthony Taylor beat Salt Papi at Wembley Arena.

Taylor is a former training partner of Jake Paul and like the influencer-turned-boxer, also lost to Fury.

Reports suggest that just before the decision was announced, Fury, half-brother of world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, was confronted by Idris Virgo. The 25-year-old is also a former reality TV star and has an unbeaten record as a professional fighter.

Fury, 24, was seen in a headlock as the pair scrapped with one another before being separated by a big crowd including Tommy’s father John Fury.

Former cruiserweight king Mairis Briedis was also involved in breaking up the drama, but within seconds, the situation calmed down and the pair were pulled away from each other by security.

When he was later asked about the altercation with Virgo, Fury told talkSPORT: “He’s just another bum looking for a payday, that’s all.”

Virgo is 12-0-1 (2 KOs) while Fury is 9-0 (4 KOs) after beating Paul earlier this year.

Fury has expressed a desire to fight KSI, 29, next and played down his fellow Briton’s talents on Saturday.

“In my opinion, out of all this influencer boxing stuff, I beat the top of the tree,” Fury said.

“Jake Paul’s the best out of all of these, so all this now is easy money, baby.”
