        Not exactly, but in any case, what Iron Fist thinks to himself, that Shang-Chi is the only person on the planet who can, not equal Danny in a martial arts fight, but probably win is a more honest assessment than friendly banter between the two.
      Both can be true. Danny can think he’s superior as well as acknowledging that Shang has a chance in defeating him too.

    That's not what Danny thinks though. The word "probably" means more likely than not, as in Shang-Chi would probably win against Danny according to Danny's own thoughts on the matter.

Yes. Like I said, I agree Danny feels Shang-Chi probably has a shot against him “in a Kung Fu battle”. Doesn’t mean he doesn’t see himself as the better overall fighter given his abilities. I favor Danny over Shang-Chi due to his chi powers and I’m sure many would as well. Danny fought Shang-Chi AND a cult of crazed lunatics each possessing, while not the experience, a copy of Shang-Chi’s martial arts expertise, then survived a truck thrown at him.. and still came out on top overall. So when Danny suggested he had the upperhand after they fought, he was being modest imo. So yea, a grand says he meant it.


      And as for the “one person in the world”.. did Danny forget about Shen Kuei or Master Izo? I could also see Gorgon, Fat Corbra, and Prince of Orphans defeating Danny but I can understand not taking them into account given their enhanced abilities.

    Shen Kuei cannot "probably" beat Danny. I think he'd be seen as the underdog. How much does Danny even know of Izo to consider him? Fat Cobra isn't normally on Earth, so he wouldn't count. I don't know the status of the Prince of Orphans, but he may not be on Earth either.

Well the score between Shen Kuei and Danny is 1 to 1. Danny failed to keep his guard up in the first match and was defeated. Something you don’t do when facing the “Rock God among mercs” as Deadpool would say after he was defeated by Shen. Shen Kuei’s martial arts skills rival Shang-Chi’s. Shen and Shang fought to a draw in the past so if Shang-Chi has a shot, I figured why not Shen?



Izo is mentioned in the Book of the Iron Fist. Danny also fought alongside him during the Shadowland Daredevil arc.

Fat Cobra actually has an extensive colorful history on Earth. Last I heard he assumed the title of Black Dragon, the head of the San Francisco Chinatown Underground. And the Prince of Orphans is actually from Earth. Then there’s guys like Cap, T’Challa, Mandarin and Temugin. But I’m assuming Danny wasn’t considering enhanced opponents but strictly martial artists. Could be wrong.
