The two met in the ring at the Misfits Boxing event at the OVO Arena Wembley, London, United Kingdom on Saturday 13th of May 2023, where each fighter traded punches for two rounds before KSI landed an illegal forearm/elbow to Joe Fournier’s jaw.
Joe Fournier had submitted a protest and KSI responded following KSI’s Technical Knockout win in the second round.
After a thorough review of the evidence and representations, along with the assistance of Mr. Micky Vann (the Supervisor in charge) and an eminent Barrister (Mr. Gul Nawaz Hussain KC of 33 Bedford Row Chambers, London) where necessary, Mr. Morris came to an independent decision.
Even though KSI was winning the fight, the blow with the forearm/elbow was found to be accidental and with the obvious disappointment that will follow, it has been decided that the contest is declared a “No Decision” in accordance with the Rules.
The PBA has conducted the review properly, fairly, and with legal assistance throughout as the bout was sanctioned and regulated under the unified rules of boxing. Ensuring that this process was conducted swiftly and fairly to uphold the integrity of boxing.
