Logan Paul said he will fight Dillon Danis as planned on Saturday despite being left bloodied on Thursday when Danis hit him in the face with a microphone after an altercation broke out during a press conference.
“Dillon can’t escape me. Fighting is happening more often, and the stakes are getting higher,” Paul posted on X.
Earlier, Paul’s coach said that the famous YouTube star suffered an eye injury that might jeopardize the scheduled six-round match.
“Right now, we’re going through hell,” Ball coach Milton LaCroix told USA TODAY Sports during a phone interview. “He got hit in the face. He cut his eye. So now I’m eavesdropping, just trying to find someone.”
“There may be no fighting.”
But the CEO of the company promoting the boxing match later said Paul was “still ready to fight.”
“Logan is good,” Misfits Boxing CEO Olajide Olatunji told reporters. “I went to see him. He’s fine. He’s still ready to fight. If anything he’s very angry and can’t wait to get his hands on Dillon.”
Earlier, Paul’s coach said that the YouTube star suffered an eye injury that could jeopardize the fight.
Olatunji, known as KSI who fights in the co-main event, described Paul’s injury as a “shock”.
An argument between Paul and Danis during the fight turned nasty, as Danis posted sexually explicit photos of Paul’s fiancée, Nina Agdal, online.
Agdal filed a lawsuit last month accusing Danis of a “sustained and relentless campaign of harassment and cyberbullying against her” that included “posting illicit, sexually explicit images of her on the Internet without her consent.”
