Chaos, flying projectiles, bloody cuts, and hurled abuses. That’s how you can sum up Logan Paul vs. Dillon Danis and KSI vs. Tommy Fury. If you think it all ends on Saturday night, most likely you are wrong. The situation is capricious, and a minor skirmish can escalate into a brawl. If the ongoing trend continues, the Misfits event is headed to a lawless station where the only rule is a riot.

What are the chances that the event will descend into disarray? Pretty much. Will the boxing community witness tens of bodies jumping into the ring and exchanging blows? The result is most likely a repeat of Floyd Mayweather vs. John Gotti. And it started with a string of tweets by Danis, exploiting Logan Paul’s fiancée Nina Agdal‘s dating history to sell the fight.

The MMA star did such a remarkable job of promoting the fight that it’s all that’s on people’s minds. However, he did it at the cost of Nina Agdal’s privacy. Danis agitated Paul by exposing the past of his fiancée but eventually found himself on the receiving end of a $150,000 lawsuit, including a restraining order.

That didn’t deter Danis, and he has since continued to do his job. Meanwhile, the lawsuit and the tension surrounding it have overshadowed the event. Amid the controversial saga, Logan Paul recently sent a stern message to Danis. “Dissemination. You don’t gotta get to details. There’s more counts coming. It’s heavy dude. I’ll be honest, it’s a f**king 50 calibre adamantium bullet to the dome,” the WWE star said on B/S with Jake Paul.

While the heat is soaring between Danis and Paul, it has already been blown out of proportion between KSI and Tommy Fury. The involvement of John Fury has only exacerbated the situation.

John Fury: furious altercations and antics

The head honcho of the Fury family, John, has made sure he accompanies his son and keeps the emotions raw. Easy on the temper and hard on the punches. He explodes within seconds. Such was the scenario when he flipped the table at the first event press conference.

The 59-year-old has heckled KSI on multiple occasions and even once threw a water bottle at him during the open workouts. When the British YouTuber spat his chewing gum on him in response, he threatened to f*ck him up. “Come down here! Come down here! I’ll f*ck you. I’ll f*ck you! …Three days until you’re over and join Jake Paul,” he said. His hostilities see no end, as he even confronts Logan and Jake’s father, Greg Paul, on the same night.

Likewise, online scathing banter between KSI vs. Tommy Fury and Logan Paul vs. Dillon Danis has translated into more scorching comments and exchanges whenever the pairs have met on the press conference stage.

When Danis and Paul squared off in the weigh-in presser, the world didn’t anticipate another bottle-throwing antic. The American influencer exchanged a few choice words and then threw a bottle at Danis. The latter didn’t hold back and threw the mic right back, which left Paul bleeding.

It left Paul with a deep cut, but he reaffirmed his desire to fight Danis. The fans witnessed a similar aggressive scene when John Fury forcefully walked into the glass cage and tried to shatter it with his punches and headbutts. Act two of the glass-breaking endeavor occurred when KSI and Tommy Fury faced off against each other.

If not for security, any of the faceoffs could have broken into a full-drawn brawl. What happens when you throw in Jake Paul and Conor McGregor into the mix?
