Logan Paul wants Dillon Danis to literally put his money where his mouth is.
The WWE Superstar will put on boxing gloves for the first time in 3 years on October 14th, facing Bellator fighter Danis in Manchester, UK. With Danis having a history of not following through on his threats, Paul has got himself some insurance ahead of the fight.
As reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, if Danis were to pull out of the upcoming fight due to faking an injury, then he would have to pay Paul $100,000. If an assessment is required, it will be made by Paul’s doctor.
Dillon Danis is described in the report as “a big mouth joke” in the MMA world, having a reputation for pulling out of fights and his opponents in Bellator have been nobody of note.
The advice to put some money on the line may have been advised to Paul by KSI, who is a close friend and business partner of the YouTube star. KSI was previously meant to face Danis in Wembley Arena in January 2023, but withdrew from the fight citing having no coach and struggling to make weight.
Logan Paul Calls Out Conor McGregor
Paul’s return to boxing has got the combat world talking, with one of the biggest names in MMA voicing his opinion on the matter. Shortly after the fight was announced, former UFC Champion Conor McGregor would pick his side for the bout, showing his support for Danis. Paul would notice McGregor’s update, stating that he could be a future opponent.
Paul’s last appearance in a boxing capacity came immediately after SummerSlam, where the social media star travelled to Texas after SummerSlam to accompany brother Jake to the ring.
