LOGAN PAUL deliberately chose to fight Dillon Danis because he knew he would be good at selling the bout, claims his brother Jake.
Logan will go head-to-head with Danis on the undercard of KSI vs Tommy Fury on October 14.
The MMA fighter has been attracting attention with his social media attacks on his opponent's fiancee Nina Agdal.
Danis recently made the headlines by getting his hands on an old X-rated video of the model discussing her sexual desires.
He posted the clip online and has taunted Logan with further images of Nina hanging out with several different men.
Danis' trolling saw him find a photo of the Danish beauty alongside former Manchester United striker Diego Forlan to the disbelief of fans.

Logan has faced a barrage of online abuse about his fiancee.
But his younger brother has now jumped to his defence.
Jake tweeted: "Remember my brother picked this guy for one reason only… because he craves attention and followers and will do his best to sell the fight, making my brother even wealthier in the process.
"Hence why Danis has no backend percentage of the money made. He’s a puppet."

Jake was initially slammed by fans for not supporting Logan and using the drama to promote his betting brand Betr.
He shut down critics, saying: "People have said you're not coming to your brother's defence. Defence of what?
"Logan is going to knock the f***ing s*** out of this kid, that's all that matters, the rest is just sales for the fight and making my brother more money.
"Defence of somebody's iddy-bitty tweets? We're grown men here.
"We've seen so much worse than this. Logan doesn't need my help with anything.
"People are mad because I used the beef to promote Betr, get over it. It's marketing 101."
Meanwhile, Logan claims the whole situation has improved his bond with Nina.
He said: "I love this girl so f****ng much, [the relationship] is so much stronger.
"Nothing will get between us, not some fake internet troll.
"Danis' life has devolved to being a pretend fighter.
