    KSI has confirmed Dillon Danis will be his next opponent – just one day after a brawl broke out with the MMA star.

    YouTuber-turned-boxer KSI will take on Conor McGregor's former training partner Danis on January 14 in London.

    The bout will be the headline event on the fourth card of KSI's Misfits Boxing Series and will take place at Wembley Arena.

    The hugely-successful Brit was in Austin, Texas, to announce Danis and take in the main event fight between Deen The Great and Walid Sharks on Saturday at his promotion at the Moody Center.

    And KSI took to the ring with Danis before the headline battle and was involved in a heated exchange with the Bellator fighter after the bout was confirmed.

    When they went head-to-head for a second time, KSI made a defiant claim to his opponent, who has not fought since 2019.

    "Best believe, January 14, you're finished," he told Danis. "I am the nightmare KSI. Look at me in the eyes, no-one trains as hard as me, no-one is as good as me, you'll see – watch, bro."

    That meeting came after a brawl between the pair at Friday's press conference as tensions boiled over.

    The duo shared strong words on stage, before things quickly got out of hand as Danis aimed a jab towards KSI's jaw and security quickly rushed in to intervene.

    The crossover fight with Danis will be KSI's fourth as a professional, after he made a comeback with two victories in the same night in August on his inaugural Misfits event.

    He defeated rapper Swarmz in a complete mismatch, before defeating 2-5 pro boxer Luis Pineda.

    But Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu expert Danis looks set to prove KSI's toughest test yet in the squared circle.
