'Can you not read?' – KSI and Tommy Fury erupt into Twitter spat amid rumoured talks for celebrity boxing fight | The Sun

KSI and Tommy Fury erupted into a Twitter spat amid rumoured talks for a celebrity boxing fight between the two.

YouTube, music and influencer boxing star KSI looked on course to finally settle his score with arch rival Jake Paul this year.

But those plans look to have faced the KO after Paul was beaten by Fury in February by split-decision in Saudi Arabia.

KSI has since revealed he now wants to instead face Fury and finish what Paul started.

He tweeted: "I’d much rather fight and beat Tommy Fury so I can ruin Jake Paul’s legacy."

But a shocked Fury, 23, responded: "Wait. Beat who?"

To which KSI, 29, bluntly fired back: "Beat you. Can you not read?"

Paul, 26, snubbed a Fury rematch or talks with KSI to instead return on August 5 in Texas against 38-year-old ex-UFC star Nate Diaz.

So KSI will refuse to wait around for Paul and instead try to one-up his arch enemy by beating Fury.

He told SunSport: "I want Tommy Fury, simple as that. I'm not going to waste my time with Jake Paul.

"He wants to fight Nate Diaz, an MMA fighter who isn't known for his boxing; black belt in jujitsu, blah, blah, blah.

"Maybe in the UFC ring it would be a bit more entertaining, in the MMA ring yeah, but in the boxing ring everyone just knows Jake is going to win that.

"I'm not just going to waste my time, I'm going to go straight for Tommy and do what Jake Paul couldn't."

KSI returns on May 13 at Wembley Arena against millionaire nightclub tycoon-turned 9-0 boxer Joe Fournier, 40.

But in the background, his promoter Kalle Sauerland revealed ongoing negotiations with Fury and his dad John.

And KSI insisted the talks to face the brother of unbeaten heavyweight champion Tyson is no publicity stunt.

He said: "It's so funny, because a lot of people think it's all cap.

"A lot of people think I'm just chatting out my a***. Does it look like I'm chatting out my a***?

"We're working on it, man. Just a few thing but I think we're very close and I'm pretty sure, fingers crossed by next week, we'll see."
