KSI promoters hopeful of striking a deal with Tommy Fury's entrourage

Promoter Kalle Sauerland, who collaborates with social media sensation KSI, thinks a deal for a future matchup with light heavyweight contender Tommy Fury is quite likely.

Back in February, Fury stunned everyone by defeating undefeated YouTuber turned boxer Jake Paul in a hard-fought split decision.

On May 13, KSI will make a comeback to the ring to take on Joe Fournier, an unbeaten boxer. To discuss a potential matchup with KSI, Sauerland recently met with Tommy Fury's father and trainer, John Fury.

"Had a great meeting with (Fury's dad) John, we both like the fight. It's about getting a deal done now. Look, John seems to be like a very simple person to deal with which I like, straight shooter," Sauerland told Pro Boxing Fans.

"We had a good meeting, it was nice to go up to Morecambe and yeah, I'm confident we can get it done. But we're not overlooking obviously Joe Fournier first."

The rematch with Paul is another problem.

Although Paul has the option of challenging Fury to a rematch right away, there hasn't been much discussion of a follow-up fight lately.

The present contractual scenario for a Paul-Fury rematch is unknown to Sauerland.

The impending confrontation with Fournier is the immediate concern for KSI and Sauerland before they cast too far into the future.

"Let's get a deal done first. I'm sure they've got a few other options on the table as well. I hope we can get it done but at the same time we've got to focus on the Fournier fight. It's not unsimilar to the situation Jake Paul was in and we don't want to make the same mistakes and we won't," Sauerland said
