JAKE PAUL has given his prediction for Tommy Fury's showdown with KSI – and fears it could end with an illegal blow.
Former Love Island star Fury will look to go 2-0 in the influencer boxing scene in an October showdown with YouTube sensation KSI.
Fury, the younger brother of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson, is the bookies' favourite to win the Manchester melee.
And Paul reckons TNT won't let KSI – real name Olajide Williams – see the final round.
He told Mirror Fighting: “I think Tommy knocks him out in like less than five rounds."
KSI thought he'd picked up his fourth win in a row in May when he stopped self-proclaimed billionaire Joe Fournier in the second round of their Wembley Arena war.

But replays showed he hit pal of former heavyweight champion David Haye with an illegal elbow and the KO was overturned to a No Contest.
And Paul wouldn't be surprised if his long-time rival made use of his right elbow again.
The Problem Child added: “I mean [KSI] is doing these gimmick WWE fights up until now.
"Tommy is his first real test, but who knows, he might throw an elbow on Tommy, too.”

Despite having considerably less fighting experience than Fury, KSI is confident he'll shock the world and blow TNT out of the water.
He said: “I came back to boxing to show the world the crazy levels I’m at.
"I’ve shown through obliterating all my past opponents that I am the best in this scene.
“KO after KO has now led me to the toughest fight in the influencer boxing scene. I’m fighting Tommy Fury.
"The man that defeated the once undefeated Jake Paul is now my opponent and I can’t wait to silence all the doubters that believe I have no chance.
"After this fight, you’ll understand that I truly am that guy.”
