Boxing 2023: Wild Logan Paul-Dillon Danis face-off divides boxing world, KSI Vs Tommy Fury

Logan Paul and Dillon Danis have had their final face-off ahead of their bitter grudge match … well, kinda.

Paul, who came to fame as a YouTuber, and Danis, a two-fight Bellator fighter who is arguably best known for being Conor McGregor’s training partner, faced off separated by plexiglass after weighing in for their hotly anticipated fight as the co-main of the KSI-Tommy Fury Misfits card.

Both weighed in inside the limit for the catchweight clash in Manchester on Sunday morning (approx. 8.30am AEDT) before going face-to-face.

Paul fronted up wearing a balaclava, which he didn’t remove the entire time he was on stage, while Danis kicked the glass several times.

Danis taunted Paul several times, saying the pair should do a “real face-off”.

It probably wouldn’t have been a smart idea.

The pair’s ugly lead in to the fight erupted on Friday when Danis smashed Paul in the face with a microphone after the YouTuber threw a bottle of his Prime drink at Danis’ crotch.

Paul’s trainer, Milton Lacroix, told USA Today that the fight could now be in jeopardy.

“Right now, we going through hell,” Lacroix said.

“He got hit in the face. His eye’s cut. So right now I’m just bugging out right now, just trying to find somebody. There might not be a fight.”

But Paul later confirmed he wasn’t going anywhere.

“Dillon can’t escape me. The fight is very much happening, the stakes just got higher,” he tweeted.

Danis then posted a picture of blood on the floor, writing: “Play with fire get burnt p***y.”

Paul showed off his swollen face on social media but made sure he stayed covered for the weigh in face-off.

However, the glass cage got a mixed reaction from fans.

“That’s so soft doing a face off in a cage with glass between wtf,” one fan wrote.

Another added: “Lmao I’ve never seen a face off behind glass and in a cage.”

Another fan commented: “Putting them in a cage is some p***y s**t just have a normal face off.”

But others liked it: “I’m Ngl I like this cage face off stuff! Encourages fighters to speak up.”

“I kind of like this cage idea . makes the fight face off wayyyy more intense,” another wrote.

Another said: “The face off with the cage and the glass separator is actually sick takes the viewer to a new place.”

But they also weren’t the only ones to bash the plexi-glass with KSI and Fury also bashing the glass.

When MMA journalist Ariel Helwani interviewed Danis after the face-off and asked him what he saw in Paul’s eyes, the MMA fighter said: “He’s a p***y bro, he has nothing behind his eyes. He has a bunch of cocaine behind his eyes. He’s a fake fighter. Let’s do a real stare off like a man. But he’s a f**king p***y.”

Danis then fired a shot at Paul’s fiancee Nina Agdal, who is suing the fighter for “revenge porn”.

Danis has waged a social media smear campaign on Agdal, including a sexually explicit photograph which was is at the centre of the lawsuit as she claims it was taken without her consent.

“Where’s Nina at, you little b***h,” Danis continued. “Bring that w***e up here.”

Paul hit straight back, saying he was feeling “beautiful” before hitting out at Danis.

“Dillon Danis is a coward, he’s a coward and I’m f**king him up Ariel,” Paul said. “I’m f**king him up tomorrow. He’s a dirty a** fighter, I’ve got all the goons if he tries anything funny. In fact I’ve got Dillon Danis kryptonite in the building. You know I brought the baddest dudes in the world. I’ve got Gordon Ryan in the building if you try any jiu jitsu bulls**t. He’s gonna f**k you up tomorrow if you try to pull some shit.”

Ryan is one of the greatest jiu-jitsu practitioners in history, having won five ADCC world titles and two IBJJF No-Gi world championships.

Ryan and Danis have bad blood after the 2017 ADCC World Championship where Ryan won via decision, but he later said Danis is “not nearly as good at jiu-jitsu as people think he is.”

Helwani then went back to Danis and said: “(Ryan)’s his (Paul’s) steroid supplier. That’s who it is. Two juiceheads. Two f***ing juiceheads that don’t know how to real fight. Gordon’s a little b***h. That’s why he’s selling out.

“He’s from Jersey and you’re gonna support the other side. You’re a f***ing dead man when you get back to Jersey you p***y a** b***h.”

But now all the talk is done, now they have to fight.
