KSI cryptically talked up Danis’ skill set before the fight was officially announced, saying the American was “dangerous” and had “beaten a lot of people”.
Fellow social media superstar Paul took exception to KSI’s description of Danis’ combat experience, tweeting: “‘Has beaten a lot of people’.
“You are ‘boxing’ a guy who has two MMA fights in his entire career and the last one of those was 3.5 years ago.”

Paul, 25, then claimed KSI should’ve fought his former foe Tyron Woodley, who recently revealed he had a contract to take on the YouTuber.
He said: “Should have fought Woodley but you ain’t got the balls.”
KSI and Danis clashed at the weigh-ins for Sunday morning’s Misfits card, with the latter PUNCHING the former in a heated scuffle.
The pair went face-to-face again shortly after the confirmation of their bout and were quick to trade verbal jabs.
