On Saturday in the main event of Misfits Boxing 7, KSI knocked out Joe Fournier in the second round, and it looked nasty — but also illegal upon closer review.
KSI WITH THE KNOCKOUT IN THE 2ND!!! #KSIFournier— Lineups (@lineups) May 13, 2023
Upon replay review, KSI appeared to have landed an elbow — not a fist — with his vicious finish of Fournier. The bout was declared a second-round knockout victory, and it appears KSI could have a matchup with Tommy Fury next.
Check out how combat pros reacted to the odd ending.
I respect boxing too much to respect what that was. If that was indeed a real boxing match it will be ruled a no contest or disqualification.— Jake Paul (@jakepaul) May 13, 2023

Maybe in a streetfight Swarmz would best Wassabi, but you actually need technique in boxing, you can’t be punching with your elbows— Solyman Jami (@Jitokeze) August 7, 2022
KSI shouldn’t take that win, you can’t elbow someone and knock them out in a boxing ring. Accident or not…— Kavos (@KavosYT) May 13, 2023
KSI should hop into the UFC.— Castro1021 (@Castro1021) May 13, 2023
