In a post on his Instagram stories, Danis reminded his fans of the dispute he had with Garcia in the middle of last year, when the two exchanged challenges and insults online via Twitter.
Danis renewed provocation came right after "King Ry" Garcia knocked Campbell out with a body shot to win the interim WBC lightweight title. Danis posted a screenshot of the following tweet sent by Garcia last June:
After the two swapped some threats, the tweet happened, daring each other to step into their respective fighting styles. Dillon Danis is an MMA welterweight fighter with Bellator.
Garcia seems to have a friendship of sorts with YouTuber Jake Paul, who is in an ongoing feud with Danis. Since picking up boxing in 2019, Jake Paul has involved himself - either for bad or good - with many names in the combat sports world.
Although the YouTuber wanted a fight with Danis, the Bellator fighter supposedly rejected the $500,000 offer made by Jake Paul. Former UFC welterweight Ben Askren accepted Jake Paul's challenge and has announced that he will fight the social media star on March 28.
Jake Paul versus Dillon Danis
Since starting his boxing career, Jake Paul has been pursuing one name only: Conor McGregor. The YouTuber has declared that beating McGregor in a boxing bout is his life's mission.
However, the UFC star had never acknowledged Jake Paul's threats and call-outs, even when they became extremely personal. The YouTuber then decided to go after those in McGregor's social circle.
Dillon Danis is McGregor's personal friend and training partner. He has been involved with the Irishman in many of the infamous brawls and questionable actions performed by McGregor's crew.
Jake Paul started by challenging Dillon Danis to a boxing fight. However, he escalated the provocations from a trivial water balloon attack to a very intimate level when he brought the model, Savannah Montano, who is Danis' ex-girlfriend, into their feud.Published 03 Jan 2021, 07:59 IST
