Tommy Fury has dropped a hint that he could entertain a rematch with KSI following their controversial fight this year.

Fury beat KSI by unanimous decision at the AO Arena in Manchester last October in a result that had to be changed following their meeting.

The win over the British YouTuber saw him improve his professional record to 10-0, which also includes a win over Jake Paul.

Having dabbled in the YouTube boxing world, the 24-year-old hasn’t ruled out another fight against an influencer – opening the door for a rematch against KSI.

Asked if he’s done with the YouTube boxing scene, he told SPORTbible: “No. I’m not done with it – definitely not. It’s very nice actually. I like it, it’s lucrative.

“But, in terms of all the crap that comes with it, I’m not about that. You’ve seen me in the build-up to these fights… I’m not interested.

“I don’t care what warfare they want to have over social media. I’m not about that.”

Fury added: “I go into training camp – do my training. I’ll turn up in the best shape as I do in every fight and I’ll come and win.

“All the crap that goes with it, I’m not there for. But if they wanna fight, they know where I am.”

A second fight between Fury and KSI would settle the controversial nature of their first showdown.

‘TNT’ had a point deducted for punching his opponent in the back of the head but was still awarded the victory.

The 30-year-old bemoaned the judges’ scoring as he boasted a better punch percentage.

After failing with their first appeal, KSI’s team plan to launch a second appeal in an effort to get the result overturned.

“We will now move to the second of three possible stages of the appeal, as we continue to fight to have the decision of the bout rightly overturned,” read a statement from his team (via Happy Punch).
