In a momentous X Series event happening in Manchester, Logan Paul and Dillon Danis are set to collide as part of the double main event, exclusively broadcasted live on DAZN. The AO Arena will serve as the backdrop for a crossover boxing extravaganza on Saturday, October 14, featuring the highly anticipated clash between KSI and Tommy Fury.
Logan Paul, who engaged in an exhibition with Floyd Mayweather in 2021 and has left a significant mark in WWE, is returning to the boxing ring this autumn for a showdown against MMA maverick Dillon Danis on The Prime Card in Manchester. Expressing his excitement, Paul shared, "Nearly two years after facing the greatest boxer in history, I'm exhilarated to step back into the boxing ring on October 14 for this monumental Misfits event."
Paul continued, "Manchester, brace yourselves for an unforgettable evening, as The Prime Card delivers a heavyweight experience with both KSI and me headlining a double main event. While the world has witnessed my energy, athleticism, and showmanship in WWE, this October, I intend to reaffirm that I can bring these qualities to the world of boxing as well."
Dillon Danis, unimpressed by Paul's WWE accomplishments, expressed his sentiments, "I couldn't care less about Logan Paul's exploits in WWE because once he's inside the boxing ring, he's entering a completely different realm. It's a realm of pain, where he lacks control, and it's my domain, not his. On October 14 in Manchester, Logan Paul is in for a serious beating."
Mams Taylor, Co-President of Misfits Boxing, chimed in, "After announcing KSI's bold challenge against Tommy Fury, I promised you that there was more to come, and now you understand why! The Prime Card is presenting fans with an unparalleled double main event. The convergence of KSI vs. Fury and Logan Paul vs. Dillon Danis on the same card is truly remarkable – an unprecedented moment in history that I eagerly await on October 14."
Kalle Sauerland, Co-President of Misfits Boxing, added, "What was already shaping up to be the most significant crossover boxing night has now expanded further with this revelation! As if KSI vs. Tommy Fury wasn't substantial enough, the X Series is raising the stakes with an epic clash between Logan Paul and Dillon Danis. All this unfolds on the same electrifying evening in Manchester – a night poised to etch its name in history."
Joe Markowski, CEO of DAZN North America, shared his enthusiasm, "We're thrilled to have KSI and Logan Paul back in action on the same card, four years after their momentous fight live on DAZN. With four prominent figures in the crossover space, this event promises an unforgettable night of action. Global audiences, be prepared for a thrilling showdown – watch it live worldwide on DAZN and DAZN PPV."
