Jake Paul isn’t buying what KSI is selling.
Following KSI’s controversial second-round knockout of Joe Fournier on Saturday in the main event of Misfits Boxing 7, Paul took to social media to call for the win to be overturned.
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
“I respect boxing too much to respect what that was,” Paul wrote. “If that was indeed a real boxing match it will be ruled a no contest or disqualification.”
Paul isn’t wrong.
The bout’s finishing sequence was a polarizing one, as KSI first rocked Fournier with a big overhand right, then ended the fight with a strike that initially appeared to be a short right hand, but upon replay review was actually either a forearm or elbow shot.
Despite the clear illegal blow, the action moved along quickly past any controversy on the Misfits Boxing 7 broadcast, as KSI called out Tommy Fury for his next fight and the two engaged in an in-ring faceoff that quickly erupted into a near melee.
But Paul wasn’t alone. Many of the pros watching at home agreed with his assessment of Misfits Boxing 7’s main event.
