As expected, Logan Paul and Dillon Danis weren’t chummy during a recent press conference.

Paul and Danis will be colliding in the co-main event of a boxing card headlined by KSI and Tommy Fury on October 14 in Manchester, England. When the bout between Paul and Danis was initially announced, the trash talk was fairly tame with “The Problem Child” putting in a clause in the contract that Danis can’t pull out of the fight without a legit reason or he’d be fine $100,000.

Things took an ugly turn when Danis began posting several pictures of Paul’s fiancée, Nina Agdal, posing with other men. Danis claimed the social media posts earned him a cease and desist letter from Paul’s team. The legal note didn’t stop Danis from continuing to post images of Agdal.

Logan Paul & Dillon Danis Get Rowdy During Press Conference

The press conference earlier today (August 22) happened to fall on the birthday of Dillon Danis, who turned 30 years old. Paul brought a cake out depicting Danis being knocked out and began to sarcastically sing “Happy Birthday” to Danis, who got up and he and Paul had to be separated.

A faceoff between Jake Paul and Dillon Danis never took place. That’s because Tommy Fury’s father, John Fury, flipped one table and kicked the table on KSI’s side with PRIME bottles flying everywhere.

Mike Perry On Standby

After the press conference fiasco, former UFC fighter Mike Perry was interviewed on stage and said he will be ready to step in if a late replacement is needed for Paul vs. Danis. He claimed the Misfits Boxing team called him to ensure the credibility of the event remains intact. He praised Paul, Danis, KSI, and Fury for being able to entertain fans before the fight, but “Platinum” says he’s the real fighter who can bring excitement during his bouts.

“Hey, I’m a real fighter,” Perry said during Tuesday’s KSI Vs Fury press conference in London. “This is what I do. This is how I feed my family. These boys been getting money other ways. They want some respect in this game, so they called me here. If Dillon doesn’t show up, I’m ready to fight. And everybody knows, when you get Mike Perry on a card, you get the fight that you’re asking for.”

Following the press conference, Dillon Danis was up to his usual antics. He took to his Twitter account to post yet another provocative image of Nina Agdal with the caption, “Sorry I was late to the face off, [Logan Paul], had a surprise in the hotel room for my birthday.”
