Moreover, one fan made the bold claim of touting Swarmz as better than Danis.

One fan brought Anthony Taylor into the mix and stated KSI would replicate the punch he threw at Danis.

Another fan believed that KSI would win because Danis will pull out from the fight.

One fan declared KSI the winner for not fighting any competition suitable for him.

However, another user did not know who was going to win and ended up hurling insults at the two.

The fans were certainly not shy to call out both Danis and KSI on what they considered as a lackluster booking. However, the majority still believe that the YouTuber will easily overcome this challenge.

This opinion could be due to the fact Danis never competed in boxing and also not competed in MMA since 2016.
