Dillon Danis recently issued a direct challenge to YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul, dubbing him a “fraud” in the lead-up to his return to the boxing ring.
Dillon Danis’ controversial relationship with the Paul brothers has been a long-standing spectacle. However, the rivalry reached new heights when Danis and Logan agreed to settle their differences inside the boxing ring.
Logan won the match with ease, but Danis’ tirade at the conclusion of the bout forced security to enter the ring. Logan Paul ended up getting the win by disqualification.
Danis then appealed the decision. He contends that the Impaulsive host should have faced disqualification for allowing security personnel into the ring.
Despite the defeat, Danis asserts that his chapter with Logan as well as his fiancee Nina Agdal is far from closed. This is because they remain entangled in a legal dispute.
However, Dillon Danis isn’t limiting his challenges to just Logan. He also wants to face Jake Paul in an MMA showdown.
In response to Jake’s announcement of his intentions to arrange an MMA bout with Nate Diaz, Danis stated: “What about Logan? You’re a fraud; you guys agree and never follow through. I’m a free agent now. Let’s fight in MMA and see how much of a man you really are.”
There were reports that Jake and former UFC star Nate Diaz might square off in the PFL’s SuperFights division. But Nate has been reluctant to join.
Danis had previously voiced reluctance about competing in the PFL. But with his release from Bellator, a significant obstacle has been surmounted.
Dillon Danis isn’t alone in his call-out of Jake Paul. Former professional boxer and Olympic medalist Anthony Ogogo has also voiced his intention to step up and face the YouTuber in the near future. The world watches with bated breath to see if these challenges will materialize into actual showdowns.
