In the highly-anticipated boxing showdown scheduled for October 14, Logan Paul and Dillon Danis are gearing up for an electrifying clash. While Danis is notorious for his knack for stirring controversy, nobody could have foreseen the extent to which he would go to hype up this bout.
Danis has taken his pre-match antics to new heights by flooding social media with a barrage of provocative images featuring Logan Paul’s fiancée Nina Agdal in the company of other men. To add fuel to the fire, Danis even went as far as sharing an NSFW video of Agdal discussing her intimate desires.
In a recent appearance on the Flagrant podcast, Logan Paul acknowledged Danis’s proficiency in trolling. But he remained unwavering in his belief that come fight night, the tables would turn in his favor.
Paul said: “Dillon hates me. I don’t give a f*** about him. I think he’s an excellent troll. I think he’s very parasitic, which is why I’m honored that I get to be the one to take him out and embarrass him. That’s why I took the fight.”
“I was like, ‘OK, I know this guy’s going to promote the f*** out of it. People are going to be interested, because if he shows up, I get to be the one [to teach him a lesson],’ and that excites me.”
Paul also expressed admiration for how Agdal has handled the tumultuous situation, surpassing his expectations. He said: “That’s the issue, my man. Poor innocent bystander, third party, female, who has nothing to do with this fight other than being my fiancée.”
Paul went on to say that he would be compensating her in the future for her suffering. He said: “You want to know something? … I did say to her, I said, ‘Nina, I’ve got to be honest, you’re handling this s*** like a warrior and I will compensate you accordingly with my winnings.’ Dog, she’s never experienced hatred in her life.”
“All of a sudden, because she’s linked to me, this is my fault, I feel so bad, but she’s strong as hell, dude. It’s part of the reason, how she’s handling all of this, why I chose her to be my fiancée.”
While the Logan Paul vs. Dillon Danis bout is firmly on the cards, there’s an intriguing stipulation in the agreement. Should Danis withdraw from the match without a legitimate reason, he will face a substantial fine of $100,000.
Former UFC competitor Mike Perry stands ready as a backup option, poised to step into the ring should Danis be unable to fulfill his commitment.
