Considering Danis has a propensity of pulling out of fights, Paul has already chosen a potential backup fighter, just in case that happens.
On Tuesday, it was revealed that former UFC star turned bare-knuckle fighter Mike Perry will serve as the backup fighter against Logan Paul if Danis doesn’t show up on fight night.

Perry is currently undefeated in bare-knuckle boxing and will likely be a tougher fight in the boxing ring for Paul than Dillon Danis.
