Danya will follow Jake’s path and shine in martial arts.
On February 16, 2024, the debut fight of the famous Russian blogger Dani Milokhin will take place in Dubai (UAE). He will perform at the ALPHA FIGHT SERIES tournament and will fight according to the rules of professional boxing. The opponents were the Indian blogger Ajmal Khan, 31 years old. It is worth noting that some openly laugh at the Russian, while they do not want to recognize him as a fighter. And most importantly, the words about Milokhin’s desire to eventually fight one of Khabib Nurmagomedov’s brothers caused a strong reaction.
Danya was preparing to compete in MMA, but has not yet decided:
Milokhin makes his boxing debut. Instead of Khabib’s brothers: a fight with a blogger
It is worth noting that Danya has been preparing for her debut for a long time and approached the process very responsibly. He began training in the fall of 2023 under the direction of coach Zorik Stepanyan. Milokhin said that he has big plans in MMA, the blogger will not stop at the fight with Khan. Of course, it’s definitely not possible to quickly fight one of Khabib’s brothers. But at the same time, Milokhin has excellent examples of how to walk a similar path.
The brightest is Jake Paul, who is literally taking the martial arts world by storm. He made his debut in professional boxing in 2020. They tried to dissuade the American, since he was only writing blogs; no one could even get a real idea of his abilities. But in the end, Paul’s dream of becoming a professional boxer literally motivated him and forced him to train hard. And the debut was successful: Jake knocked out Ali Eson Gib.

And after that, Paul’s career began to gain serious momentum. His resume even includes victories over former Bellator champion Ben Askren and former UFC champion Tyron Woodley, whom Jake defeated twice. He defeats Jake and Anderson Silva w/ Nate Diaz. His only loss to Tommy Fury was quite controversial. The fight was even, reaching a split decision in favor of the Gypsy King’s brother. But Paul managed to close that failure with two victories at the same time.
It’s worth noting that Jake won’t stop. He has repeatedly stated his intention to win the championship belt. And if at first they simply laughed at such an idea, now he takes Paul seriously. For example, former world champion in six weight classes Oscar de la Hoya highly valued the chances of winning the title.

“I admire your bravery. I admire him for being so adamant about becoming world champion and I see the talent in him. Paul has a huge fan base and does things that have never been done before. “This kid has a great future.”
It’s worth noting that Paul isn’t just focused on getting in the ring. At the same time he develops martial arts in all directions. Jake signed a contract with the PFL league, where he is working on creating a new Super Fight division. Fighters in this division will receive at least 50% of the PPV. And Paul himself intends to hold several MMA fights. And looking at Jake’s activity, we can say that he was actively working on the development of the entire league and intends to change this entire industry.
In terms of salaries, PFL definitely surpassed the world’s top promotion:

Now Danya could very well follow Jake’s path. Milokhin has good anthropometric data: he approaches training very responsibly. And a debut under the rules of professional boxing can be an excellent opportunity to test your strength before starting a career in mixed martial arts.
