KSI and Dillon Danis will settle their beef in the boxing ring as it was announced this evening that the pair will meet on January 14th.
The news comes just a day after KSI and Danis had an altercation at the Misfits 003 boxing weigh-ins. Danis, who rose to fame as Conor McGregor’s jiu-jitsu coach, crashed yesterday’s event and got into a scuffle with the owner and face of the upstart promotion, YouTuber-turned-boxer KSI. As seen in the video below, Danis hit KSI with a drink and what appeared to be a jab to the face.

KSI most recently competed in August, where he knocked out two opponents in one night at an event in London. Prior to that the rapper had scored a split decision victory over Logan Paul.
Meanwhile, Dillon Danis (2-0 MMA) has not competed in combat sports since scoring a first-round submission win over Max Humphrey (3-3 MMA) at Bellator 222 in 2019. With that said, ‘El Jefe’ has kept busy outside of the cage, making headlines for various incidents during his hiatus.
