| Last updated
Dillon Danis will reportedly appeal his disqualification defeat to Logan Paul.
American YouTuber turned boxer Paul was easing to a comfortable victory when Danis decided to attempt an MMA guillotine choke move on his opponent in the last round.
What resulted was a mass brawl where both fighters’ security teams entered the ring and Danis was then disqualified.
Now, it has been reported that Danis will appeal the decision.
Michael Benson of talkSPORT wrote on social media: “Dillon Danis has now claimed that he is going to APPEAL his DQ defeat to Logan Paul due to "multiple offences" including Logan's security entering the ring when he tried to take him down.”
Speaking after the fight, Paul said: “He was supposed to be good at jiu-jitsu, what happened bro? [He] scuffed the take down, tried that.
“Tried the guillotine. Im sorry I missed the hammer fist. I'm sorry it ended like this but that just shows Dillon Danis is a coward. He is just a dirty, dirty human being, but thank you for coming out tonight, Manchester.”
He continued: “It's so beautiful being here and I wanna give a big shout out to my team, my family, everyone who helped me. This camp was so hard and dealing with a guy like that was not easy. He was a true coward.
“I'm gonna be honest, this is a hobby. As you all know, I am a WWE Superstar, so I am going to be back in the WWE. ''There are some championships I want and I have my eye on something and my eye on someone. I am an American boy, [and I want the] US title. Rey Mysterio, I already beat you once and I want that championship. Let's go.”
