A couple of years ago, Danis himself was supposed to face ‘The Problem Child.’ However, the fight did not come to fruition but there was no love lost between them. Needless to say, in this contest, his animosity towards the 30-year-old will not allow him to support him, and most importantly, Logan Paul is his brother. When asked about the lead-up to his brother’s next fight, he admitted that Danis “Crossed the line,”  by insulting and attacking Agdal.

In an Interview with TMZ Sports, he stated, “Yeah look there is something there are lines that have been crossed. Like mortally, picking on an innocent girl, who has no involvement technically in the fight. But at the same time it is the fight game and all is fair in love and war.”

He picks this kid who he knows is going to make the fight massive and right now everybody wants to see the fight because of the things that are being said. All the pay-per-view is going directly into my brother’s pocket. And that’s why Dillon was picked. At the end of the day, Dillon is a puppet. “
