In a recent podcast appearance, popular YouTuber Logan Paul decided to have a little fun with his fans by claiming he had broken his wrist, hinting at the possibility of canceling his highly anticipated boxing match against Dillon Danis.
Logan Paul, a well-known social media personality, is set to make his return to the boxing ring after a four-year hiatus. Dubbed ‘The Maverick,’ he’s scheduled to trade punches with the controversial Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu specialist Dillon Danis. Their bout is a part of the MF & DAZN: X Series – The Prime Card event on October 14, which will also feature the headline clash between KSI and Tommy Fury.
The rivalry between Paul and Danis has been marked by intense social media exchanges and real-life altercations. Following the announcement of their match, tensions escalated, fueled in large part by Danis’s targeting of Paul’s fiancee, Nina Agdal. Danis insinuated that Agdal had a colorful romantic history with multiple ex-boyfriends and even shared suggestive photos of her with past partners, generating significant attention.
Despite successfully generating hype for the event, there remains doubt among fans about whether Danis will actually step into the ring to face Paul. The 30-year-old has a reputation for not taking fighting seriously, and he previously pulled out of a boxing match against KSI.
Furthermore, there are potential legal complications on the horizon. Paul has hinted at suing Danis for sharing what Agdal claims were private photos of her that were hacked and subsequently made public.
In light of these complications, Logan Paul decided to play a prank on his fans during a recent podcast episode. He initially claimed to have broken his right wrist, suggesting that the fight might be in jeopardy. However, moments later, he revealed that it was all a ruse.
“I broke it. I broke my wrist. Yeah, I’m able to fight for sure. I landed a punch wrong and I have some wrist problems. I broke my wrist in the past. I’ll be honest bro, I didn’t f***ing break my wrist, alright. I didn’t break my wrist. I know. I lied, I lied. Because I’ll tell you why bro… I’m not trying to scare Dillon away from this fight,” Paul quipped.
With the fight set to take place in just a matter of days, the drama and anticipation surrounding this matchup continue to build. Whether Dillon Danis takes the bait and responds to Logan Paul’s antics remains to be seen.
