KSI was punched in the FACE by bitter rival Dillon Danis as the pair clashed at a press conference in the US.
Conor McGregor’s former training partner Danis was in Austin, Texas when he attended tomorrow’s DAZN X Series 0003 Misfits boxing event.
But he almost came to the boxer with the YouTuber on Friday ahead of the pair’s expected showdown in 2023.
Danis is currently signed to MMA promotion Bellator but has not fought since 2019.
However, that hasn’t stopped him from calling out numerous fighters on social media over the past three years.
And Britain’s KSI, who is in the Lone Star State to promote a fight under his Misfits boxing banner, was his latest target.
The shocking moment came after the weigh-in, when Danis took the stage to go nose-to-nose with KSI.
He asked him, “How are you? do you look small?”
KSI replied that he was excited, to which Danis replied: “Yeah, I’m excited too, are you going to sign the contract or not? Do you want me to strangle you right here?”
His rival replied: “No, you don’t have to. But I could knock you out now if I wanted to.”

Suddenly, Danis exploded, jabbing KSI’s jaw with his left hand before security stepped in to pull him away.
KSI was heard yelling “Get off me” as he was also restrained as the bad blood between the two men boiled over.
The anger didn’t stop there, however, as Danis was soon engaged in another heated exchange after being removed from the hotel where the event was being held.
Veteran MMA and boxing Anthony Taylor, a former sparring partner of Jake Paul, chased after Danis, causing him to stumble backwards with his right hand.
Taylor then tussled with another man before security stepped in and managed to get Danis out of harm’s way.
