    KSI beat Joe Fournier with the accidental use of an elbow on Saturday evening – with fans blasting the main event on social media.

    The YouTuber turned professional boxer landed a huge overhand right in the second after an impressive opening round – before going in for the finish.

    A scrappy exchange ended with Fournier on the floor before failing to beat the count – but replays show that it was a clean elbow that sent him to the canvas.

    A second added: "KSI shouldn’t take that win, you can’t elbow someone and knock them out in a boxing ring. Accident or not…"

    A third posted: "Ksi sneaking in an elbow? Bro turn that W to a no contest man ruining the sport of boxing."

    Following the bout, KSI insisted that it was his overhand right that did the damage with the talk quickly moving on to his next outing.

    Tommy Fury, who recently handed Jake Paul a first career defeat, stepped into the ring and promised to end Misfits by beating their biggest star.

    Fury said: Sign me up, easy money. You’re going to sleep within four rounds."

    KSI also noted that Paul remains a future foe, but thinks he will have ended his rival's career by stopping the man that beat him in the form of Fury.

    The former FIFA-playing favourite already has wins against Swarmz, Luis Alcaraz Pineda and FaZe Temperrr under his belt, but Fournier was tipped to be the biggest challenge yet.

    Although the fight was stopped in the second round of the scheduled four, the 29-year-old reckons he did enough to justify taking on an unbeaten professional in Fury.
