KSI and MMA star Dillion Danis have teased a bout for a while, but there were fireworks when they came face-to-face at the weigh-in of DAZN x Misfits Series 3.
The pair crossed paths and began trading verbals following the weigh-in. However, both KSI and Danis brought up contract talks, before Danis threatened to choke out the YouTuber-turned-boxer. KSI responded by saying that he could knock Danis out right there if he wanted to.
Danis tried to lure him in to be a man of his word but decided to flick the cowboy hat KSI was wearing off his head, leading to all hell breaking loose, with security pulling the pair apart and separating them, with the dulcet tones of heavyweight legend, Shannon Briggs shouting his trademark “Let’s Go Champ!”

KSI confirmed this week that he is announcing his next fight this Saturday, as he has not fought since his 2-fights-1-night event in August. In September, the Youtuber-turned-boxer put out a shortlist of names, asking fans who they want to see him fight next, and Danis was the name which gathered the most attention.
