Tommy Fury and his father, John Fury, had an unusual reaction to a video of KSI threatening the Love Island contestant ahead of their match, replying to the pre-recorded message as if it could hear them.
On Friday, Good Morning Britain turned into a spectacle of sorts, with YouTuber KSI sending in a threatening (or attempted threatening) video to Tommy, informing him that he was going to smash him in their forthcoming battle.
During their interview, hosts Kate Garraway and Ben Shepherd played the video for the father and son, and although Tommy sat back with his arms folded, John began yelling back at the film as if it could hear him, repeatedly calling him a ‘human pineapple.’
Tommy was soon responding to the video as well, laughing along as KSI went absolutely over the top with threats such as the day of the fight being the worst day of Tommy’s life.
‘John Fury there talking to a pre recorded video,’ one wrote exasperatedly, with another laughing that the Furys were ‘talking like they are fighting Mayweather.’
It comes after John erupted and began flipping tables at a press conference promoting Tommy and KSI’s forthcoming battle when the YouTuber made a remark about boxing icon Tyson Fury.
The battle itself will take place on October 14th, following a very dramatic build-up.
Later in the GMB interview, Tommy revealed that leaving behind his seven-month-old daughter Bambi and girlfriend Molly-Mae was difficult as his high-profile fights took him all over the world.
Saying that having to be away from his family is his ‘mantra,’ Tommy went on: ‘I’m grinding every single day, going through hell, going through the trenches. Train hard, fight easy … this is going to be the best performance you’ve ever seen out of Tommy Fury.’
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV.
