Tommy Fury ended up emerging victorious after his long-awaited fight with YouTuber KSI, but new photos have emerged showing that their points were added up incorrectly.

The two British stars fought it out on Saturday night (October 14) at the sold-out AO Arena in Manchester, England.

Their bout was a closely-fought battle and the results went to the judges' decision, which deemed Fury as the winner.

Understandably, this did not go down too well with KSI who believed he should have won the match - and it turns out there was an error with the way the scores were added up, too.

When the scores were read out, one judge scored the fight a 57-57 draw, with the other two making it 57-56 in Fury's favor, despite the former Love Island star having been deducted a point in the second round for punching the back of KSI's head.

Now, a photo of the judges' scorecards has been shared on social media by TalkSport journalist Michael Benson, which shows that judge Rafael Ramos apparently added up KSI's score incorrectly.

He shared a photo of the three judges' scores next to one another and fans were quick to spot that he had seemingly added up KSI's column incorrectly.

Ramos was the judge that had the fight as a draw, but had apparently added up his scores to give KSI 57 when his points only amounted to 56.

Though this wouldn't make a difference to the fact that Fury won, it does mean Fury's win was by way of a unanimous decision, not a split decision as was initially thought.

KSI - whose real name is Olajide Olayinka Williams Olatunji - has vowed to "appeal" the decision after having been convinced the fight was going to go to him.

He said afterward: "Robbery, it's a robbery bro. How many jabs did he land? And he had a point taken off as well. You weren't landing. Look at your face, look at your eyes. Look at you."

Fury - who is the brother of champion Tyson Fury - responded: "You're a sore loser. You're a bum. Back to YouTube."

KSI then told him: "How do I lose a six-rounder? Unreal. He is the man who is meant to be a pro boxer and he won a majority decision? It's outrageous man.

"The amount of times he hit me in the back of the head. So many times. And the referee only took one point? He kept doing it over and over.

"I'm sorry, it's outrageous. We're going to appeal, I want to appeal. I felt like I won that."

Fury, who was already training as a professional boxer before appearing on reality TV, had shared his confidence that he would win ahead of the fight.

He said earlier in the week: "We all know what’s going to happen. There’s no way this man can live with me. Who’s he fought? He’s fought a rapper and the rest are YouTubers. What is going on?

"In this boxing world, he is a bum. I’m not interested. I’m levels above these guys. I’ve got every single advantage - bigger, stronger, reach, weight. This will be an early night, I promise you.

"I’ve trained like a demon for 10 weeks for this man and I’ve sparred everybody, I’ve been sparring Tyson [Fury], been sparring the whole lot of them."

It wasn't just Fury and KSI's fight that had people talking, as co-headliner Logan Paul went up against Dillon Danis in a grudge match that was deemed an "embarrassment to the sport" after Danis trash talked the YouTuber for months but barely threw a punch.

Although Paul was already the winner of every round, their fight ended in disqualification after Danis attempted to choke out the influencer using MMA moves and the match was ended by security intervening.
