In the aftermath of BKFC 56's gripping showdown in Salt Lake City, Dillon Danis, the outspoken fighter, has thrown down the gauntlet, eyeing a bare-knuckle brawl against the newly crowned 'King of Violence,' Mike Perry.
Perry, with a pristine 4-0 record in bare-knuckle boxing, showcased his prowess once again at BKFC 56, securing a TKO victory over former UFC champion Eddie Alvarez. His dominant performance catapulted him into the spotlight, generating buzz about potential matchups with UFC veterans Jorge Masvidal or Anthony Pettis.
However, despite Perry's omission of Danis from his list of prospective opponents, 'El Jefe' boldly seized the opportunity to issue a challenge, declaring on 'X,'
This audacious callout arrives on the heels of Danis' lackluster professional boxing debut against Logan Paul, where he struggled to make an impact in the ring. Despite criticism and doubts stemming from that performance, Danis remains undeterred in his pursuit of a showdown with Perry.
Yet, skeptics view Danis' challenge as more of a publicity stunt, considering his unconvincing boxing skills and the subsequent dismissal of a potential UFC deal by CEO Dana White following his bout with Paul.
As of now, Perry has yet to respond to Danis' callout. With an unblemished BKFC record and victories over formidable opponents like Michael Page, Luke Rockhold, and Alvarez, Perry stands as a proven force in the realm of bare-knuckle fighting.
The question remains: what does Danis hope to achieve by challenging Perry, a battle-tested pugilist? Will this audacious proposition gain traction or fade into obscurity, dismissed as a mere publicity ploy?
The combat sports community awaits Perry's response, speculating on whether he will entertain the challenge or brush it aside in pursuit of bigger names.
In the unpredictable world of fighting, Danis' callout injects a dash of drama, leaving fight enthusiasts pondering the possibilities and implications of this unexpected verbal skirmish.
