Erling Haaland tells KSI to his face Tommy Fury will beat him despite inking PRIME deal

Erling Haaland has made his pick for KSI vs Tommy Fury.

The YouTuber-turned-boxer is set for the toughest fight of his career when he takes on Tyson Fury’s little brother on October 14.

The Manchester City forward thinks KSI will lose his undefeated record and he made that much clear during a recent appearance on Logan Paul’s podcast.

Haaland hesitated when he was asked to give his honest thoughts about it initially.

After staring at KSI for a brief moment when thinking about his prediction, the striker responded with a chuckle: “The other guy.”  

“Ah! Haaland! I hope you score no more goals with either foot,” KSI joked.

Haaland was one of the many people who tuned in to watch the launch conference that descended into chaos when John Fury started flipping tables.

“I saw the press conference. I saw it kicked off a bit there,” he said.

“John Fury, man, he’s a bit of a lunatic,” KSI replied.

Paul got more than he bargained for during his trip to the UK.

“I have to be honest, there’s some oddballs in England,” he said.

KSI is currently combining his camp and running a fledgling energy drink company PRIME with Paul who will fight Dillon Danis on the same night.

Haaland recently became a PRIME ambassador, joining huge sporting names Arsenal, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, and the UFC in promoting the drink.

An announcement was made on PRIME’s Instagram page, which showed the trio together and had a caption that read: “The future of hydration meets the future of Football. PRIME x Erling Haaland.”

A string of hilarious videos followed, one of which showed KSI and Paul teaming up in goal, but still having zero chance against Haaland penalties.

Another video showed the 23-year-old megastar squaring up to Paul, before turning to KSI but being unable to contain his laughter.

The PFA Players’ Player of the Year’s first game as a PRIME athlete will take place on Saturday when Pep Guardiola’s side host Fulham at the Etihad Stadium.

KSI and Paul continue training for their upcoming fights.
