On Saturday, televises a middleweight world title fight and Showtime televises a super welterweight world title fight, and there’s a good chance the fighter making more money than either of those fighters is Dillon Danis. If you’re not one of Danis’s 3.5 million followers on Instagram or his 1 million followers on He has not fought since June 19, 2019.
These days, he seems to specialize in getting into street fights, talking trash to anyone who crosses his path, or causing a disturbance. Former UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov defeated Conor McGregor at UFC 229 in Las Vegas on October 6, 2018 ), he then jumped the Octagon and started a brawl on the arena floor, where he was the man being pursued by former UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov .
At this stage, Dennis’ work, as well as his enthusiasm, just seemed like a nuisance.
He will box against Logan Paul on Saturday at the AO Arena in Manchester, England, on a DAZN pay-per-view card. Since announcing the match on Aug. 8, he successfully got a New Jersey judge to issue an injunction against him for posting photos of Paul’s fiancée, Nina Agdal, online; in a news release on Thursday After the meeting, he choked a woman with an OnlyFans account and threw a microphone at Paul, hitting him in the face and cutting him.
All it does is make the fight bigger.
Floyd Mayweather put it into practice around 2004. For the first eight years of his incredible boxing career, he was clearly a great boxer and was known as “Pretty Boy” Floyd. But he was never satisfied with his salary and was ridiculed as someone who couldn’t sell tickets.
When he was “Pretty Boy” Floyd, Mayweather wore a three-piece suit, a giant fedora, and carried a machine gun in his gangster persona. He played well but was not considered a draw.
He changed this and turned himself into “Qian Mei”, creating a character that resonates. He went on to become the biggest pay-per-view seller in boxing history, making more money than any boxer.
He did the same thing Dennis is doing now, the only difference is that Mayweather competes regularly while Dennis doesn’t.
While professional wrestling pretends to be real, heels find ways to confront fans, whether it’s pulling their opponents’ torsos, pulling their hair, or using “foreign objects” from outside the ring. Out of the referee’s sight, but visible to everyone else.
Professional wrestling has changed dramatically over the years, but this plan is as reliable as looking west toward the sunset.
Dennis has seen this and now he can use social media to help and support his plans. So, to his credit, he found a way to make money fighting without actually fighting, and avoiding getting punched, elbowed, or kneed in the process, or having someone try to choke him to death. It’s also a way to gain notoriety, thereby expanding your social media presence, which can lead to more revenue.
Dennis withdrew from numerous games and received extensive media coverage as a result.
Considering Dennis has a tendency to withdraw from fights, there’s no guarantee he’ll actually get to play with Paul. Paul and Dennis cleverly included a clause in their playing agreement that stipulated that Dennis would pay a $100,000 fine if he did not play without an accredited doctor certifying that he was not in good health. They then hired former UFC star Mike Perry as a so-called backup if Danis doesn’t compete.
If you like high quality boxing, this card may not be for you. Tommy Fury, who defeated Logan Paul’s younger brother Jake on February 26 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, will face another in a select match A social media star KSI. In the Jake Paul fight, Fury, the half-brother of lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, had a combined record of 24-176-5 against his opponents.
Fury was billed as Jake Paul’s first real boxing opponent, but with a track record like that, anyone who knew anything about boxing wasn’t going to take him seriously. But hey, by defeating Jake Paul, who was 6-0 at the time, he managed to improve his opponent’s record to 30-176-5.
Fury has a last name, though, and his father, John, is even more elusive than 1970s WWWF star Johnny Rodz. John Fury hit his head on a wall after throwing a combination ball hard for no apparent reason on Thursday. He previously said he would only fight again if he could have a fight with Mike Tyson. “Iron Man” Mike is 57 years old, two years younger than “Big” John.
So what we have here is a bunch of guys with really well-known names who don’t fight, but they charge you $55 to watch them fight.
Please keep your eyes open when purchasing and know that this is nothing like legal boxing. It’s entertainment, and while it may not appeal to a lot of people, it will appeal to others.
Hopefully all the fighters will make a good amount of money and go home safe and sound to their families after a fun show.
If that happens, everyone wins.
