After Paul threw a bottle at Thursday’s press conference, Danis launched a microphone at him from close range, seemingly hitting the side of his face. Reports suggest Paul was cut, but he wore a balaclava to Friday’s weigh-in to keep everyone guessing.
Paul, older brother of Jake, has been starring as a wrestler with WWE but he returns to boxing this weekend for the first time since an exhibition bout against Floyd Mayweather in 2021. It his first competitive fight since losing to KSI in 2019.
Danis, meanwhile, is an American mixed martial artist who trained alongside Conor McGregor and competes with Bellator. Scheduled to face KSI earlier this year, there are still lingering doubts as to whether or not he will actually fight this weekend, with former UFC star and bare-knuckle boxer Mike Perry tipped to potentially step in.
