The American mixed martial artist, who last fought and beat Max Humphrey via submission in 2019, reportedly told KSI’s manager Mams Taylor he was ‘underprepared’ for the bout, which was scheduled to take place at the OVO Arena Wembley on January 14.
He’s since hinted that wasn’t the real reason for his late change of heart, having previously complained about KSI’s team trying to tinker with the contract after they had agreed on terms.
Nevertheless, KSI went on to extend his winning run by downing replacement fighter FaZe Temperrr in the first round.
Asked by TMZSports whether he would be open to the prospect of fighting Dillon Danis in the future, KSI responded: “Bro, I want him to go into irrelevancy – I don’t want anything to do with him anymore.
“He’s banned from Misfits, I don’t ever want to see him anywhere near Misfits, I’m never going to fight him, and if I see him I’m probably going to slap him in the face for all the disrespect that he gave me throughout this buildup.”
