Dillon Danis Contests Disqualification in Boxing Debut Against Logan Paul

Claims of Unfair Play Surface as Danis Plans Appeal Post Misfit’s Prime Card Event

In a twist following the recent Misfits Boxing’s Prime Card, Dillon Danis, making his boxing debut, seeks to overturn his disqualification against internet personality-turned-boxer Logan Paul. The event, marked by controversy and theatrics, concluded with Danis aiming for an illegal maneuver, casting a shadow over the sporting validity of the match.

The match, which served as Danis’s return to combat sports since 2019, ended in disarray when he was disqualified for attempting an unlawful choke in the final round against Paul. Rather than retreating into the shadows after the loss, Danis took to social media, engaging in online sparring with various figures from the fighting world, including Nate Diaz.

The fighter’s most significant post-fight contention is his intention to appeal the disqualification.

“Multiple offenses were committed by Paul’s side that the commission needs to investigate,”

Danis pointed out in a tweet responding to a video highlighting an instance where Paul’s team member allegedly interfered during the match.

Despite the chaotic nature of the event, neither athlete showcased exemplary boxing skills. Still, with the official result – if uncontested – Logan Paul emerges as the victor. Adding to the spectacle, Danis quipped that his microphone hit during the pre-fight press conference inflicted more harm than Paul’s punches on the night.

While Dillon Danis’s allegations against Logan Paul and his subsequent appeal may stir further discussions about the match’s legitimacy, the episode underscores the blurred lines between entertainment and sport in such high-profile events. As the combat sports community continues to debate, the anticipation quietly builds on whether the decision will indeed be reviewed and possibly reversed.
