Logan Paul’s Betting Outlook vs Danis
Logan Paul enters this boxing fight with three fights on his resume so far. His most recent fight was an exhibition match against Floyd Mayweather in June 2021, which went the full eight rounds. Before that, he had a split decision loss to KSI in November 2019 and a draw against KSI prior to that.
Logan Paul’s boxing style is characterized by his preference for being the more explosive fighter. He constantly lands jabs and attempts to throw effective knockout shots. Paul’s height and reach give him a natural advantage in the ring.
While neither of Saturday’s fighters are very experienced in boxing, Paul is the favorite for good reason. The YouTuber has trained consistently as a wrestler, giving him good cardio that could prove critical in the later rounds. He’s also shown the ability to adapt his style, as seen in his fight against Mayweather.
Paul’s weakness is his defensive skills, which have been deemed “questionable” by many experts in the industry, especially when Paul is facing quicker opponents. His unconventional approach to the sport leaves him open to counterattacks.

Dillon Danis’ Betting Outlook vs Logan Paul
Dillon Danis comes into Saturday’s fight being a complete newcomer to boxing, hence why he is a significant underdog. The 28-year-old American mixed martial artist currently competes in the Welterweight division of Bellator MMA.
When it comes to Danis’ MMA history, he has two wins and zero losses, with both victories coming via submission. Being a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Danis has a strong ground game with elite submission skills. Considering his striking isn’t very developed, he’ll aim to win this fight by taking things to the ground.
Logan Paul vs Dillon Danis Tale of the Tape
|0-1-1 (Pro Boxing)
As seen in the above Paul vs Danis tale of the tape, the MMA star is at a clear size disadvantage facing the taller and heavier Paul. If the fight stays standing, it’s hard to envision Danis winning in a potential slugfest with the older Paul brother.
Logan Paul vs Dillon Danis Prediction
After all the social media trolling from Danis, the narrative is shaping up nicely for Paul to silence his opponent with a dominant performance in the ring. Paul’s size and reach advantage, as well as his experience in the boxing ring, can’t be ignored when making a Paul vs Danis prediction.
This fight is a clash of styles, with Paul’s raw power and boxing against Danis’s ground game and submission skills. It will likely come down to who can impose their style of fighting on the other. Danis has trained with MMA champions like Conor McGregor, but will it matter against a legitimate fighter with prior boxing experience?

With Danis transitioning from MMA to boxing, it’s hard to back him on his first fight considering the different strategies and skills that will be required to win. His best avenue to victory might be to keep things in tight, possibly besting Paul with his knowledge of the clinch, or parrying Paul’s shots and landing short, effective punches.
Danis is evidently a great grappler, but grappling skills don’t necessarily translate to boxing. The 30-year-old hasn’t even fought in MMA since 2019, while Paul partook in a boxing match as recently as 2021.
Our best bet for Paul vs Danis is “The Maverick” to win By KO, TKO or Disqualification, which is currently being offered at -175 odds at Bet365.
