TOMMY FURY has launched a blistering attack on KSI – insisting his mum could knockout out the social media star.
YouTuber turned boxer KSI called out Fury – the brother of WBC heavyweight champ Tyson – after his back-to-back fights in August.
Fury welcomed the opportunity to face the social media sensation, although he doesn't think it'd be much of a fight.
During an appearance on The MMA Hour, he said: "I have got to say Jake is better than KSI. I think my mother could knock out KSI in a round.
“When I watched him fight those two men, I wasn’t even looking at the two men because they were useless.
"I was looking at him and what he does as a boxer and he can’t fight.

“There are some people in this world that are rough and ready and can fight. He can’t fight.
"You look at KSI and I don’t see a fighting man, I see a pretender who plays FIFA on YouTube or whatever he is famous for.”
Fury, 23, will return to action a week on Sunday on the undercard of Floyd Mayweather's clash with YouTuber Deji in Dubai.

And he expects an easy night at the office against The Problem Child.
He said: “I haven’t spoken much on the Jake Paul situation in recent months, but when you see me get in the ring with one of these guys – and I don’t know who it’s going to be first, whether it’s KSI or Jake Paul – you will see the definition of an easy night.
"You will see why I’ve been saying what I’ve been saying.
"These guys can’t fight, it’s like me dragging someone off a white-collar event or someone who has just started amateur boxing and asking them to come in and spar.
“There are levels to this game and people have to understand that, and I know I’m not at any sort of level myself in my career.
