KSI blasts Dillon Danis for no-show at first press conference: ‘He is terrified of me’


On Thursday, a press conference took place to promote the upcoming boxing match between KSI and Dillon Danis. Unfortunately one fighter didn’t show up while the other did.

KSI and Danis are scheduled to meet in the headliner of MF and DAZN: X Series 004, which takes place Jan. 14 at Wembley Arena in London. KSI, who was seated on stage with Danis at the press conference felt disgraced but believes he is in the Bellator fighter’s head.

” In terms of Dillon Danis’ not being present, it’s very disappointing and disrespectful to us all, who were expecting him to be here,” KSI stated. It’s something that I’ve seen many times before.

“I don’t know, maybe it’s my presence, maybe it’s just me in general, I’m so much of a scary guy. That’s understandable. I am very organized, focused and disciplined. If you take a look at my resume you will see that I haven’t lost too often. I think for Dillon, that’s probably seeping in. Yeah, I know he’s undefeated himself, but I think looking me in the eyes — even when we saw each other in Texas — I could tell it was a facade. He had to pretend that he’s bigger and stronger than he actually is, and it kind of shows not being here how little he really is, how small his mindset really is. He says I’m not a real fighter but I’m here. I’m always ready. And, as someone he says he is a real fighter, he has not made the plane trip to see me, and has not even made the Zoom call to see me, he’s terrified. He’s petrified of me. It’s disappointing.”

KSI has a split victory over Logan Paul in the 2019, pro-fight. He also won a pair knockout victories against Brandon Scott, Luis Alcarez Pineda and Luis Alcarez Pineda at MF and DAZN: X Series HTML1.

Danis will be fighting his first fight for over 3 years. He has already won two consecutive submissions in Bellator’s cage between April 2018 & June 2019,. Also, he was in a standoff with KSI in Austin (November) in a staredown before MF/DAZN: X Series 003..

Should Danis be in the squared circle next year, KSI expects to make a statement.

” Regardless of what, Jan. 14,” KSI will understand my frustration at his disrespect for me. “I am a man who, if I focus, when I want it, it doesn’t matter what. If anything, this makes me want to train harder, makes me want to do more than I already am doing, it makes me want to do more sprints, more bag work, more sparring, more of everything that I’m doing at such a high level.

” I’m up for anything, regardless of whether Dillon Danis or Tommy Fury is involved, Jake Paul, Jake Paul, or any other guy. I’m a completely different animal and will prove it in all the fights I take part. It’s just a shame, honestly.

“I believe I’m all he thinks about and I’m in his nightmares — constantly terrorizing him, haunting him — and it’s making him slowly break down. It’s making break down, thinking, ‘Maybe I’m in over my head. When I see KSI in t he ring Jan. 14, am I really to get in there with him?’ Is he the guy that’s going to beat me, I don’t think so.”
