KSI v Tommy Fury undercard fights

MAIN CARD

Logan Paul v Dillon Danis

Weight Class: Bridgerweight
Rounds: 6
Time: 10:05pm

YouTuber, WWE star and Prime co-founder Logan Paul bids to earn his first boxing victory when he faces Bellator MMA fighter Dillon Danis, who is also Conor McGregor’s training partner.

It is technically the co-main event but it lacks the status of KSI v Tommy Fury, despite a bitter build up to the bout that has seen Danis relentlessly troll Paul and his fiancé, Nina Agdal, on social media, to the point that she has been granted a temporary restraining order.
