DILLON DANIS and KSI had to be pulled apart as they came face-to-face for the very first time.
Conor McGregor‘s former training partner was in Austin, Texas as he is attending tomorrow’s DAZN X Series 0003 Misfits Boxing event.
But he almost came to blows with the YouTuber-turned-boxer on Friday ahead of the pair’s expected showdown in 2023.
However, that has not stopped him from calling out numerous fighters on social media over the past three years.
And Brit KSI, who is in the Lone Star State to promote a fight under his Misfits Boxing banner, has been his latest target.
The shocking moment occurred after the weigh-ins as Danis entered the stage to go nose-to-nose with KSI.
He asked him: “How are you doing? You’re looking small?”
KSI replied by saying he was excited, to which Danis responded: “Yeah I’m excited too, you gonna sign the contract or no? You want me to choke you out right here?”
His rival retorted with: “Nah you don’t need to. But I could knock you out right now if I wanted to.”
Suddenly Danis exploded and threw a left-hand jab at KSI’s jaw before security raced in to intervene to pull him away.
KSI was heard yelling “get off me” as he was restrained also as the bad blood between the two men boiled over.
However, the trouble did not stop there as Danis soon found himself in another heated exchange after he had been removed from the hotel staging the event.
MMA and boxing veteran Anthony Taylor, a previous sparring partner of Jake Paul, chased after Danis and sent him stumbling backwards with a right hand.
Taylor then scuffled with another man before security jumped in and managed to usher Danis out of harm’s way.
