Logan Paul will make his return to the ring next month as he faces fierce rival Dillon Danis in the joint main event of the KSI vs Tommy Fury card.
Paul has not fought in a boxing match since facing sporting icon Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition bout in June 2021.
He has instead joined WWE for the past two years, but is now set to make his return to face Conor McGregor’s training partner Danis.
Danis pulled out of a clash with KSI in January, but will now face the influencer’s business partner in his first-ever boxing bout.
The rivals clashed on social media ahead of the fight and Paul reportedly threatened legal action against Danis over his posts.
Paul is also so confident that he will beat Danis because he is willing to put a million dollars on the line.
The latest press conference for the fight turned crazy as John Fury nearly started a riot by overturning the tables and destroying the set.

Paul versus Danis: What was said?
UFC legend McGregor will likely be ringside for this fight after revealing he will be training Danis.
The event will undoubtedly be huge in the world of power boxing and now appears to be even bigger with McGregor’s involvement.
He told the Matchroom Boxing YouTube channel: “Dillon is going to win, for sure.
“I guide him, I will train him for this and I guarantee a victory.”
After finding out McGregor would train Danis, Paul revealed he was willing to bet £1million on his victory.
“Oh shit Conor, Conor McCrackhead coaching, Dillon Danis, huh? Worst coach in history, my chances just went up,” Paul said.
“I’ll pick you up next, bitch.
“But listen, if you have that much confidence in your boy, I have a bet for you. I’d bet on Dillon, but he’s a broke asshole and that’s a fact.
“Conor, look, I got a million dollars that says I beat your boy on October 14th.
“Come on bro, I know you’re fucked, let’s see how confident you are, imagine all the coke you can buy, you fucking addict.
“Two dummies, one night, October 14th, I fuck you both.”
McGregor has yet to respond, but Danis responded on Twitter, saying: “Since you want to make bets and you’re so sure you’re going to knock me out, if I win you have to make me the better man. at your wedding.
