Who is YouTuber True Geordie? – The Sun | The Sun

TRUE GEORDIE is a YouTuber who burst onto the scene by speaking his mind – but his controversial opinions have seen him shunned.

He was in line to be on the panel for KSI's highly anticipated second fight against Logan Paul… until his hair-brained quotes stripped him of his duties.

And he got into a huge spat with Tyson Fury during an interview, which prompted the Gipsy King to blow up into a rage with the YouTuber.

Who is the True Geordie and what does he do?

True Geordie – real name Brian Davis – became well-known after his first video went viral.

The clip, 'A True Geordie's view on Nile Ranger' was followed by further passionate rants concerning his local football team, Newcastle United.

True Geordie has also uploaded Premier League previews and reviews of the weekend's action, as well as analysis and panel shows covering a wide range of sports, including Boxing.

He has built up a following of 1.99 million subscribers and garnered over 248m views.

What happened during True Geordie's argument with Tyson Fury?

True Geordie conducted an interview with the Gipsy King in October 2022.

He suggested that boxing fans did not care about seeing Fury fight Derek Chisora – when he had originally been lined up to face Anthony Joshua.

Fury roared: "I think you're a t****r. You little t***pot.

"And I won't be doing any more interviews with you little t***pot, bearded, bald-headed t***er.

"Kiss my b**ls, you little w**ker. You little s***house."

Why was there controversy over him commentating on KSI vs Logan Paul?

True Geordie was accused by Logan Paul of being biased in his the pre-fight press conference for the 2019 bout, and a hater, after a series of tweets and videos which insulted him.

A True Geordie video which critiqued Logan Paul's involvement in the filming of a Japanese suicide, something Paul later apologised for, is one of his most viewed videos, at 3.2million views.

Meanwhile, True Geordie has been known to tweet insults directed at the Paul brothers, tweeting after KSI's first fight: "If people thought that commentary was bias then wait until @KSIOlajidebt fights one of the Paul bros. I hope he f***ing wrecks the c****."

In revenge, Paul initially refused to allow True Geordie to commentate on the first fight, but an online petition in protest which has since gained over 17,000 signatures helped Davis get the gig.

Yet, that will not be the case the second time around.

With this fight going professional, with Matchroom Boxing promoting the event, and Sky Sports and DAZN paying for rights, the True Geordie was turned down for the role of commentating.

Instead, YouTube stars Aneson Gib and Joe Weller – both previously spending time in the ring – will commentate the rematch from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
