YouTuber turned boxer KSI has been slammed for a ‘disgusting’ post which mocked Tommy Fury with a video of a young man at a gym.
KSI and Tommy Fury are set to face each other at the Manchester Arena on Saturday, October 14 and the feud between them has grown since Fury beat YouTuber turned boxer Jake Paul in February.
But the fighting talk has spilled over and the unbeaten YouTuber has come in for plenty of criticism after he posted a video of TikToker Amine (@thehonest_1) on Twitter with the caption: "Cant lie, Tommy Fury never looked better."
The video is highly controversial given Amine’s post on the social media platform surrounding his body confidence, where he posts videos of himself during and after workouts.

Fans on Twitter were quick to berate KSI, with one commenting: “Bro. You know how hard it probably was for that kid to post that? And then a famous person puts him on blast for something that has nothing to do with him? I love me some trolling, but you couldn't find another example? Pathetic.”
A second said: “Disgusting behaviour from an “influencer”. Do better.” Whilst a third said: “Making fun of someone’s appearance is not cool bro.”
“Nah. This ain’t it. Mocking people’s appearance online is a massive L,” a fourth commented. “At least we know what kind of person you are…. Making fun of a person’s appearance? That the best you can come up with? Really low tbh,” a fifth wrote.
The Sidemen co-founder previously admitted that fighting the unbeaten Fury is the "toughest fight in the influencer boxing scene.”
He said: “I came back to boxing to show the world the crazy levels I’m at. I’ve shown through obliterating all my past opponents that I am the best in this scene.
“KO after KO has now led me to the toughest fight in the influencer boxing scene. I’m fighting Tommy Fury. The man that defeated the once undefeated Jake Paul is now my opponent and I can’t wait to silence all the doubters that believe I have no chance.
"After this fight, you’ll understand that I truly am that guy.”
KSI and Fury will headline the upcoming MF&DAZN: X Series Prime card in October, which will also see Jake Paul’s brother and KSI’s Prime business partner, Logan Paul, take on Conor McGregor’s training partner Dillon Danis.
