Logan Paul and Dillon Danis are just hours away from settling their rivalry.
The YouTuber-turned-boxer will return to the ring for the first time since fighting Floyd Mayweather in June 2021 when he takes on an MMA fighter.
Paul and Danis will fight on a card headlined by KSI’s eagerly anticipated clash with Tommy Fury at the AO Arena in Manchester on Saturday night.
The build-up to their co-main event bout has been marred by below-the-belt insults and social media trolling.
It became so personal that Paul’s fiancée, Nina Agdal, filed a lawsuit against Danis.
Here, talkSPORT looks at who the fight world is predicting will win when Paul and Danis finally settle their differences in the ring.

Conor McGregor – UFC superstar, Danis Teammate
McGregor has been unwavering in his support of the man he has called a training partner since 2016 ahead of his debut in a new sport.
“Dillon’s gonna win, Dillon will win,” he told All Out Fighting.

The younger Paul brother is backing his sibling to score an emphatic knockout win and end his rivalry with Danis.
“Logan is a really good boxer and he’s really athletic and he’s really strong,” Jake said on the FULL SEND podcast.
“He’s had experience being in the ring with Floyd Mayweather for eight rounds.
“So when it’s all said and done I believe Logan’s going to knock him out.”
KSI – YouTuber-Turned-Boxer, Paul’s Business Partner
KSI shared the ring twice with Paul before they made millions together after launching their PRIME energy drink company in 2022.
The internet celebrity – real name Olajide Olayinka Williams Olatunji – was supposed to fight Danis earlier this year before the New Yorker pulled out at the last minute.
KSI is confident Paul will record his first boxing win against Danis.
He said via The Sun: “Logan can do it. He will destroy him. He will absolutely obliterate him.”
Eddie Hearn – Boxing Promoter
However, Hearn is a fan of the Misfits Prime card and believes it could sell somewhere in the region of one million pay-per-views.
As for the co-main event, he sees a clear winner.
“Logan Paul wins that fight,” Hearn insisted during an interview with Pro Boxing Fans.
Aaron Chalmers – Influencer Boxer, Former MMA Fighter
Chalmers knows just how hard it is to transition from MMA to boxing.
The former Geordie Shore star has been impressed with Danis’ pre-fight trash talk but thinks it could come back to haunt him when he steps into the ring.
“I’m going to go for Logan Paul, just because of the abuse he’s had online from Dillon,” Chalmers predicted on Misfits Boxing’s YouTube channel.
Viddal Riley – Undefeated 10-0 Professional Boxer
Riley has a vested interest in the main event of the evening.
The 10-0 English cruiserweight champion, who used to train KSI and has called for a fight with Fury, also has a strong opinion about the co-headliner.
‘I think Logan’s going to kill him, to be honest,” Riley told the Daily Mail.
“Not literally! I need to be careful with my words.
“Dillon Danis has never proven that he’s effective with punching. We know that he’s a jiu-jitsu specialist.
“But when it comes to throwing strikes, I’ve never seen anything that makes me think he can stop someone like Logan attacking him.
“So, I see a Logan Paul win.”
Astrid Wett – Influencer Boxer
Wett is another person who has been impressed by Danis in the build-up to his boxing debut and is questioning if it will impact Paul on fight night.
However, the OnlyFans star is backing the more experienced boxer to get the win.
“I think this fight is going to be closer than people think,” Wett said on her TikTok channel.
“Personally, I’m going to go for a Logan Paul KO in the third round.”
Idris Virgo – Undefeated Boxer, Former Love Island Star
Virgo thinks both men will be feeling the pressure tonight.
The 12-0-1 prospect says it could ultimately come down to who needs to win more and in his opinion, a defeat for Paul would be devastating.
“Logan’s got more pressure because if he loses to Dillon Danis, he didn’t defend his girl’s honour,” Virgo told Planet Sport.
“In all honesty, if I was Nina, I wouldn’t marry Logan because you didn’t defend me – you’ve got to win.
“There’s loads of pressure on Logan but then, with Dillon Danis, he’s got to back up what he’s saying as well.

“There’s equal pressure, but I think Logan’s got more to prove. If he doesn’t prove it, I don’t know what he’s going to do next.”
