KSI was left awkwardly laughing as he faced off with NOBODY after Dillon Danis no-showed their press conference.
Danis was due to fly in from New York to help promote the January 14 DAZN pay-per-view bout.

But after falling ill, the American elected to stay at home and instead focus on training ahead of what will be his boxing debut.
After the press conference wrapped up, KSI posed for photos and pretended to square up to an imaginary opponent.
The YouTube star let out a laugh when being faced with no opponent while using his imagination.
Danis, 29, did not even attend the media commitment virtually and was slammed by KSI, 29.
He said: “In terms of Dillon Danis not being here, I think it’s quite disappointing, disrespectful to me and everyone here expecting him to show up.
“It’s not something I haven’t seen before. I don’t know, maybe it’s my presence, maybe it’s just me in general, I’m so much of a scary guy.
“But I can understand that — I’m very disciplined, very focused, and if you look at my resume, I don’t lose too many times.
“I think for Dillon, that’s probably seeping in. Yeah, I know he’s undefeated himself, but I think looking me in the eyes — even when we saw each other in Texas — I could tell it was a facade.
“He had to pretend that he’s bigger and stronger than he actually is, and it kind of shows not being here how little he really is, how small his mindset really is.
“He says I’m not a real fighter but I’m here. I’m always ready.
“And, as someone he says he is a real fighter, he has not made the plane trip to see me, and has not even made the Zoom call to see me, he’s terrified.
“He’s petrified of me. It’s disappointing.”
Danis is a 2-0 MMA fighter most commonly known as Conor McGregor’s training partner, but he has not competed in three years.
Meanwhile, KSI had two comeback fights on the SAME NIGHT in August, beating rapper Swarmz, 26, and boxer Luis Alcaraz Pineda, 23.
And he returns for his sixth bout at Wembley Arena against Danis.
KSI said: “I believe I’m all he thinks about and I’m in his nightmares — constantly terrorizing him, haunting him — and it’s making him slowly break down.
“It’s making break down, thinking, ‘Maybe I’m in over my head. When I see KSI in t he ring January 14, am I really to get in there with him?’
“Is he the guy that’s going to beat me, I don’t think so.”
