Dillon Danis and Logan Paul are poised to step into the ring on October 14th in Manchester, England. The bout has received a lot of attention.
When the boxing match was first announced, Conor McGregor expressed his intention to train Danis for this boxing match.
With a mere fortnight remaining until the showdown, it appears that this collaboration did not come to fruition. During a recent interview with All Out Fighting, McGregor was pressed for his forecast on the Dillon Danis vs. Logan Paul face-off.
While McGregor gave his vote of confidence to Dillon Danis for a victorious outcome on October 14th, he also shared insights into why their joint training never materialized.
He stated: “Dillon’s gonna win, Dillon will win. You know, he had the baby we didn’t get to train together. So, don’t know the ins and outs, I know he’s doing well.”
Conor McGregor has been absent from the ring since 2021, following a leg fracture sustained in his trilogy match against Dustin Poirier. Although slated for a return against Michael Chandler this year, no updates have surfaced. Its clear that McGregor won’t re-enter the octagon in 2023.
During a recent press briefing, UFC CEO Dana White disclosed that Conor McGregor’s anticipated return to the ring is most likely set for next year. White also touched on Michael Chandler’s situation, indicating a willingness to arrange another bout should Chandler opt not to wait for McGregor.
White stated: “I got nothing on either one of those guys right now. I mean, I’ve been saying for a while, you know, next year is when Conor’s gonna fight. And then obviously, you know, if Chandler gets angsty we’ll figure something out.”
“I think Chandler’s got a bunch of money, he’s hanging out with his family and when the time is right for the Conor fight, I’m sure that’s the fight he wants. I’m not speaking for him, I’m just assuming [that’s the fight he wants].”
