After the incident at KSI's weigh-in for his boxing match, now the duo will finally get a chance to settle their differences inside the boxing ring. This was first done by KSI's friend, former Bellator fighter Anthony Taylor, who decided to deal with Dillon Danis outside.
Although several people separated Taylor from Dillon, he eventually managed to get to him and punch him in the head. Although Danis is still under Bellator's contract, he hasn't fought in nearly four years, so this will be his return to combat sports in general.
The match should be scheduled for January 14 (Month 1) next year, and should take place at the OVO Arena in Wembley Stadium, London, and should all be part of the DAZN pay-per-view event.
Speaking about his next fight, KSI said:
"Every opponent I've faced is dangerous, or has the ability to be dangerous, but the person I'm fighting is very dangerous.
He has beaten a lot of people and, for me, is exciting. I've wanted to get my hands on him for time. It's raising the bar and it's nice for me to finally get my hands on him and knock him out." Dillon Danis, who is only 29 years old, has recorded only two victories in as many appearances in his professional MMA career.
KSI, on the other hand, performs somewhat more actively, mostly in exhibition performances, and he also played one professional match. That was in 2019 when he defeated Logan Paul by split decision. Jake Paul used the opportunity to mock his rival KSI.
“Nothing worse than a staged run in with coffee being thrown and then you go outside and get your ass whooped by some real ones,” Paul stated. "You're going to box against a guy who has only two fights in his entire MMA career, and the last one was three and a half years ago. You should have fought Woodley, but you don't have the guts." - concluded the famous YouTuber.
