And he insists his "focus won't be distracted" by the pre-fight mess involving Danis.
KSI said: "I mentioned at the Press Conference that Dillon was being haunted by me. He made his excuses and knew he couldn't handle what I bring to a boxing ring.
"This answers the question whether he's a fighter or not.
"He's a warrior alright, a keyboard warrior, and hopefully he's learnt to leave the real men to speak with their actions rather than hollow words.

"That being said, my focus won't be distracted from the task at hand and that's FaZe Temperrr.
"We've come head-to-head plenty of times with the Sidemen and FaZe Clan competing against each other, and it looks like we have another challenge on our hands.
"Credit to Temperrr for stepping up like a REAL fighter.”
Temperrr is confident heading into the fight, and says he wants to knock the Sidemen – YouTube group KSI is part of – off top spot.
He added: "I showed exactly what I can do in my last fight.
"At any moment in the fight, I can catch my opponent and you can see how they respond when that happens.
"The Sidemen have been on top for too long, and it's time for FaZe and I to show them exactly what we're made of.
"Sure, KSI is a huge name, but only one man is going to come out of this victorious. I hope he's as prepared as he says he is, because I’m coming to London to do one thing, and that's claim a massive win inside that ring."
The bookies are heavily in KSI's favour – they're backing him to maintain his unbeaten professional record.
And despite underdog Temperrr having one loss on his record, that came against Slim Albaher, the American holds a significant height and slight reach advantage.
Temperrr is 6ft4, considerably taller than KSI, and has a one inch reach advantage, which he says allows him to catch his opponent.
