Logan Paul says Dillon Danis will be in for the worst night of his life when the two of them step inside the squared circle come October 14.
After months of back-and-forth trash-talk on social media, fans are less than two weeks away from finally seeing Paul and Danis strap on the eight-ounce gloves for a showdown as part of Misfits Boxing’s ‘The PRIME Card’ in Manchester.
Since the moment their bout was announced, Danis has been relentlessly trolling Paul and his fiancee, Danish swimsuit model Nina Agdal, a decision the social media sensation says Danis will live to regret.
“I can’t imagine after all the talk he’s done on X. After all the sh*t he said, what it’s going to be like to be trapped in a ring with me,” Paul said in an interview with TMZ Sports. “He has made a grave error and assuming he shows up, October 14 will be the worst night of his life.”
Even with the fight closing in, many are still skeptical as to whether or not Dillon Danis will actually show up. The BJJ specialist has earned a reputation for pulling out of fights, particularly after he bowed out of a previously scheduled scrap with Paul’s PRIME Energy partner KSI earlier this year.
“He’s a crybaby. Legitimately. I’m not just saying this to try and rile him up,” Paul said. “He’s a coward. He’s made this fight entirely about a woman. He chose to pick a fight with a woman. She fought back. He’s whining about it. He’s upset. He’s making excuses left, right, and center, and I think everyone knows in the back of their head, as entertaining as he can be, and I’ll give it to him, he can be very funny… I don’t know if he ever had any intention of showing up for this fight.
“You got the clout now. You got the attention you wanted, but also you signed a contract that said you had to show up on a certain date and that day is coming. October 14 on ‘The PRIME Card’ is going to happen and if you don’t show up, there’s consequences for that we baked into the contract in case he pulled out because he has a history of pulling out because again, he’s a coward. He’s the king of the ducks. He’s all bark, no bite.”
Logan Paul noted that if Danis does not show up on October 14, he will owe Paul $100,000 per the terms of their contract.

Logan Paul Won’t Let His Emotions Get the Best of Him Come Fight Night
Though his fight is with Logan Paul, Danis has largely targeted Agdal in his online attacks, routinely attempting to make light of her past relationships with Hollywood elites like Leonardo DiCaprio. Asked if the incredibly personal assaults on social media would affect his emotions come fight night, Paul said:
“My anger is zero. Good fighters don’t fight out of emotion. There’s nothing he could say or do that could rile me up and I’ll repeat myself. Dillon Danis is nothing, but a keyboard warrior. He is a clown. He is a puddle in real life and when you’re across from that type of human in real life, you don’t have a phone or your Twitter trolls to hype you up.
“It’s just a different ball game, so I’m gonna go in there and I’m gonna box his a** off. I’m gonna fight him, I’m gonna knock him out, I’m gonna collect my paycheck, and go home.”
While Danis’ incessant trolling has been humorous at times, he appeared to take things a bit too far when he posted a sexually explicit photo of Agdal that was taken during a “romantic encounter” more than a decade ago. In response, Agdal filed a lawsuit against Danis claiming that he had violated state and federal ‘revenge porn‘ laws that could end up costing the fighter hundreds of thousands of dollars in both damages and lawyer fees.
“He has chosen to fight a two-front war,” Paul said. “He has picked a fight with both of us and we’re fighting back in our own way. We’re a unit, man. That’s what marriage is and when I put that ring on her finger, that’s what I intended to do so we’re moving through this as a unit and it’s gonna be glorious.”
