Dillon Danis has just announced his intention to appeal the disqualification loss that he was given in his professional boxing debut against Logan Paul on October 15th, 2023. The match had a lot of hype around it during the build-up, largely due to Danis’ antics on social media and the level of bad blood between him and Paul. He was even sued by Paul’s fiancee, Nina Agdal, as a result of the relentless trolling that he was directing at her through his Twitter account.
Sadly the actual boxing match itself was incredibly anti-climactic. Once the two men got in the ring and the first round began, it was immediately clear that the match was never going to live up to the hype around it. While nobody would have expected a display of elite technical boxing from a YouTuber and a former BJJ competitor, not many would have predicted what the match actually looked like. Danis was reluctant to throw any strikes at Paul and although Paul was clearly far more willing to engage, he simply wasn’t skilled enough to actually do much damage to an opponent who wasn’t really fighting back for the majority of the fight.
To his credit, Paul did land good shots whenever Danis opened up a little more, but those moments were incredibly few and far between. After 5 rounds of hardly any actual boxing, the 6th round descended into absolute chaos when Danis started trying to grapple with Paul, Paul threw strikes against Danis on the ground, and security entered the ring as a brawl broke out. The end result was a disqualification for Dillon Danis but it’s clear that rules were broken on both sides, and Danis has revealed that he will be submitting an appeal.
Dillon Danis revealed that he intended to appeal his disqualification loss to Logan Paul in a recent post to his official Twitter account, a reply to IFN Boxing showing footage of a member of Paul’s security entering the ring while the match was still ongoing:
There was multiple offenses I’ll be submitting my appeal to the commission today. https://t.co/C4rvgx5MOc
