“I feel great, it’s easy money to be honest, that’s a little b*tch of a thing, I’m used to fighting real fighters, so he’s not ready for this,” Danis told Misifts Boxing. “I guarantee you I knock his ass out, watch.

“I’m gonna hurt him bad bro. The f**ked up part about all this whole thing is like these little YouTube boxers they’re gonna see what a real fighter feels like. He’s gonna see… I’m gonna hurt him bad bro, I’m gonna hurt him bad,” he added.
