A call-out

Despite losing to YouTube star Logan Paul in a boxing match, the Dillon Danis has now called out his opponent’s brother, Jake Paul. Danis took to X (formerly Twitter) to propose a bout, offering to retire and give everyone who likes the post $2,000 if Jake Paul knocks him out:

In the lead-up to the event involving Danis and the elder Paul brother, the two let fly a huge amount of trash talk on social media. A lot of it got nasty, as Danis said some awful things about Paul’s fiancée Nina Agdal, to the point that Agdal getting a restraining order against him.

Not a close contest

The fight itself saw Paul going hard for a big knock-out, with Danis barely even managing to land a punch during the six rounds. In the final seconds of the bout, a complete brawl broke out and Danis was disqualified for attempting to put his opponent in a guillotine choke. Paul had done enough by that stage to win on points.

A brawl also broke out in the ring following the Saturday night fight, with members of both fighters’ entourages getting involved in the scuffle.

Jake Paul was in attendance on Saturday night and took to social media to say that Danis “talked so much s**t and is one of the worst fighters I’ve ever seen,” which is what led to Danis issuing a challenge to the younger Paul brother. He is still awaiting a response.
