Danis became famous for being the training partner of Conor McGregor and can be seen accompanying ‘The Notorious One’ in his fights. Danis is often involved in brawls and controversies. Fight fans can remember Khabib Nurmagomedov attacking Danis after the legendary main event at UFC 229 in 2018.
On the other hand, KSI has taken the boxing world by storm. He is undefeated in boxing with a record of 3-0 and made his boxing debut in 2018. The British boxer defeated Logan Paul and took a hiatus from boxing. KSI returned in August 2022 and beat Swarmz and Luis Alcaraz Pineda on the same night.
Let’s take a look at the stats of KSI and Danis below:

How much money will Dillon Danis make for the KSI fight?
