- Danis has called for himself and Paul to receive ‘Olympic-style’ testing
- The pair are set to receive standard tests rather than USADA tests
- Danis has slammed Paul on social media in the aftermath of the news
Dillon Danis has continued his verbal barbs at Logan Paul on social media after it was reported that the pair will be drug tested ahead of their bout next month.
KSI and Fury have both returned negative VADA (Voluntary Anti-Doping Association) tests in camp and will be checked regularly, but Paul and Danis won’t do the same.
The Mirror reported that Misfits Boxing promoter Mams Taylor confirmed that Paul and Danis will be tested for steroids ahead of their grudge fight. They will undergo standard tests rather than VADA or USADA (US Anti-Doping Agency) tests which Danis has regularly called for.
‘This is nonsense,’ Danis wrote in response to a tweet confirming that they will be drug tested.

Danis has hit out at Paul saying their drug test is the ‘easiest to beat in all of sports’
‘Another scam by Logan Paul to pretend he’s clean. Setting a specific day and time for a p*** test is the easiest to beat in all of sports, especially for someone like him with experience.
‘It’s why the UFC switched to USADA (US Anti-Doping Agency).’
Mixfits Boxing promoter Taylor told the Mirror that the tests will be administered by the Professional Boxing Association.
Danis though has regularly claimed that he wanted ‘Olympic-style’ testing for himself and Paul, which would have meant involvement from the USADA or UKAD.
The 30-year-old has made accusations against Paul, who has denied ever taking a performance enhancing drug in his life.
Danis last week described Paul as a ‘juice head’ in response to a topless picture from the YouTuber-turned-boxer who showed off his impressive physique.
In response to Paul’s picture, Danis commented: ‘It makes sense why you turned down Olympic-style drug testing.
‘You juice head, all that muscle mass, you’ll gas in that ring.’
Paul addressed accusations of steroid use during an episode of Andrew Schulz’s podcast Flagrant last month.
In response to the accusations, which have been made without basis, he claimed that he offered to do a USADA test if Danis took an STD test.
He said: ‘Shut the f*** up. Guys – the conversation never happened (about testing).
‘I said “Dillon, how about this? You want to do your USADA testing, I’ll do an USADA test, you take an STD test, the results are public.
‘He laughed at me, of course he won’t do it, he’s gonorrhoea walking.
‘I’ve had this physique, I’m in good shape, this isn’t some unaccomplishable thing if you work out six days a week.’
And in a later episode of his own podcast Impaulsive, he claimed he ‘didn’t know’ why there would be no more stringent testing, telling co-host Mike Majlak: ‘I’m not on steroids.

‘I don’t know how many times I need to clarify this, I don’t know why we aren’t doing USADA or VADA testing, the conversation was never had between us.’
‘I’m more than happy to do it, I’ll do it – I just have one request; Dillon laughed at me in the face-to-face but if I do a drug test I want him to do an STD test. I’m just curious what’s going to show up and he laughed at me, he wasn’t interested in doing that and I wonder why, I wonder what you got, you feel like a gonorrhoea guy to me.’
There has been no indication that Danis has ever contracted any sexually transmitted infections.
KSI’s bout with Fury will headline the card on October 14 at the AO Arena in Manchester.
