In a highly anticipated showdown filled with animosity and drama, Logan Paul emerged victorious in a controversial fashion against Dillon Danis during the Misfits Boxing: The PRIME Card at Manchester's AO Arena. The six-round exhibition bout was a co-feature spectacle that had fans eagerly awaiting the encounter.
Before the fighters even touched gloves, it was evident that the heated build-up was going to result in an explosive battle.
The first round began without the customary glove touch, as Paul wasted no time in launching a barrage of punches, targeting both the head and body of his opponent. Danis maintained a tight guard and responded with smiles as Paul continued his assault. Amidst the punches, the two fighters engaged in a verbal exchange. While Danis advanced, he refrained from offering much in terms of offense.
As the second round commenced, Paul initially unleashed a flurry of punches, and despite keeping his hands at his waist, he continued to dominate. Danis, seemingly unfazed, maintained a bemused expression while the crowd voiced their disapproval with boos. In a bizarre turn of events, Danis taunted Paul and refrained from throwing punches, which prompted Paul to unleash a furious flurry of his own, leaving Danis covering up.
The third round saw Danis adopt a peculiar defensive posture with his right elbow high, earning him a swift warning from the referee. Ignoring the warning, Paul persisted with his offensive onslaught, causing Danis to resort to theatrics, lying on the canvas as if he were in a jiu-jitsu match. Both Paul and the referee were unamused by Danis's antics.
While Danis managed to land a solid right hook in the fourth round, he quickly fell back into a passive stance, frustrating Paul with his lack of offensive output. However, Paul remained committed to his strategy. Towards the end of the round, Danis attempted to secure a guillotine choke, but the bell rang to end the action.
The fifth round saw Danis cornered, and Paul capitalized by delivering a series of powerful punches. Frustration grew for Danis as he missed his punches throughout the round and informed Paul that he would beat him in jiu-jitsu.
In the final round, Danis decided to abandon his boxing efforts and attempted a takedown. When Paul defended against the takedown, chaos erupted in the ring. Multiple security personnel rushed in to intervene, leading to Danis's disqualification.
Following the chaotic turn of events, Paul seized the opportunity to taunt Conor McGregor and express his desire to step into the WWE ring against Rey Mysterio Jr.
