Logan Paul and Dillon Danis are in a competition to see who is disliked the most, but they will settle their differences in the ring on Saturday night at the AO Arena in Manchester.

I have already voiced my opinion of these kinds of fights in the Tommy Fury versus KSI preview, so I will not go over old ground here. I will continue as if this is a genuine fight – although we know it is not.
Logan Paul is a YouTuber/Boxer/WWE Superstar and the co-owner of Prime (the drink not Amazon) and after all that he is still not very likeable.
Dillon Danis is certainly not likeable. He is well known for riding on the coat tails of Conor McGregor, while not really performing when he gets into the Octagon.
Paul has only stepped into a boxing ring on three occasions. His first was an amateur bout in which he drew against KSI, before losing to him the following year in his only professional bout. He then took on Floyd Mayweather Junior in an exhibition fight that was not scored – what is the point of that.
I might not think much of Paul as a boxer, but he has been impressive as a WWE performer. He partnered The Miz against Rey and Dominic Mysterio at Wrestlemania 38, and also had a bout with Roman Reigns before impressing in the Royal Rumble.
Personally, he will gain more respect staying in the WWE than he will trying to prove his is a boxer.
Danis has a mouth on him, and it will get him into trouble. He has never been in the boxing ring and has an MMA record of two fights and two wins.
He has been in trouble before while mating around with McGregor, and he feels the best way to get noticed is to be antagonistic.
In the build-up to this fight, he shared images online of Paul’s fiancée Nina Agdal which forced her to take out a temporary restraining order – I suppose that will be lifted on Saturday so they can all get their TV time.
Whether this was all a stunt or not is unsure, but it is tedious. Even writing this in the week of the fight, I cannot 100% say that Danis will go through with the fight. I would not be surprised if he pulled out within hours of this preview going online.
If the fight goes ahead, back Paul to knock Danis out in a fight we all wished we would have swerved.
