Dillon Danis throws punch at Logan Paul as fight breaks out at press conference

Dillon Danis throws punch at Logan Paul as fight breaks out at press conference

Dillon Danis threw a punch at Logan Paul during their press conference in Manchester.

American MMA fighter Dillon Danis has thrown a punch at his opponent Logan Paul during their press conference in Manchester.

Before their highly anticipated match-up on Saturday (14 October), the duo came face-to-face at today's (12 October) press conference.

The boxing rivals will be on the undercard for the main event - Tommy Fury vs KSI.

However, it all kicked off this afternoon as tensions boiled over after the trash-talking on stage, as Paul threw what appeared to be his microphone at Danis.

The MMA man responded by throwing a punch at the YouTuber, as the pair were quickly taken apart.

There appears to genuine bad-blood between the pair, as Danis, who is making his boxing debut, refused to back down in his online vendetta against opponent Paul’s fiancee, which has resulted in Nina Agdal lodging a lawsuit against him.

Previously speaking about Paul, Danis said: “I think he's a scumbag, I think he's egotistical, he bullies people that don't have the same opinion as him, he makes them sign NDAs and lawsuits and all this s***.

"I just don't respect him as a man or a boxer, I think he's good in WWE, I'll give him that but I don't respect him as a person.

“He's terrible, he goes down in one, he's not a fighter, he's been spoonfed everything he's ever had in his entire life and I'm just going to break him.

“He's never seen the kind of tenacity that I bring so he's going to f**king break under the pressure.

“I don't think he has power, I think he has arm punches, skinny legs and all upper body, it's arm punches and I won't even feel them.”

After the on-stage incident today, fans are concerned that the fight might be called off.

One fan tweeted: "I wouldn’t be surprised if they call off Dillon Danis vs Logan Paul fight.

"Depends on how bad Logan’s head is, time will tell."

Another said: "This fight is definitely off if it’s true Logan got cut and is bleeding."

A third added: "Fight could already be off if Logan cut bad.

"He got rushed off hope it goes ahead tho not a fan of either but hope Logan knocks him out.

While a third said: "If he is bleeding, that fight is off already. Can’t fight with a cut."

Someone else added: "Looks like the Logan Paul fight is off."
