Logan Paul and Dillon Danis have seemingly agreed to finally share the boxing ring next year.
In the modern age, combat sports stars don’t necessarily have to come from either boxing or mixed martial arts. Sometimes they can come over from another industry and if you don’t believe us, just take one look at what Jake Paul has been able to accomplish since making his debut inside the squared circle.
The celebrity boxing era is still very much alive and well with KSI further proving that this past weekend by defeating two opponents in one night. Moving forward, the Brit and the American look set to continue leading this charge with no concrete ceiling for what they can achieve – in theory, that is.
We’ve seen plenty of rivalries emerge from this sub-genre since it first took off and many more will likely develop as we carry on down this road. One of the biggest, though, and one of the strangest, has been the constant back and forth between Logan Paul and Dillon Danis.
Paul is best known for his YouTube work and has also ventured into boxing before, taking part in a two-fight series with KSI before an exhibition showdown with Floyd Mayweather.
Danis, meanwhile, is a big name in the world of jiu-jitsu, but hasn’t actually competed in MMA for over three years.
The pair haven’t made a secret of their hatred for one another and after KSI suggested a Prime card in January, both individuals seemed to agree to a fight.
Paul: “As long as I get to f*** up @dillondanis”
Danis: “i’m done talking i’m in 100% let’s f***ing do this”
Finding the time
Although it’s feasible for Logan Paul to take part in a boxing match against Danis, it’s worth remembering that he’s now a prominent star in the world of professional wrestling.
‘Maverick’ signed a deal with WWE earlier this year and he’s been really impressive in his handful of appearances with the promotion.
Still, if there’s enough money to be made in this feud, you’d have to think this is on the cards.
