Floyd Mayweather has added another exhibition to his schedule.
Mayweather vs. Deji
‘Money’ is already booked to fight RIZIN superstar Mikurua Asakura on Sep. 25, but that wouldn’t stop him from cashing in from another bout against popular YouTuber Deji. Mayweather will reportedly face Deji in Dubai this fall, according to Mirror Fighting.
Mayweather vs. Deji happening probably wasn’t on anyone’s bingo card as it’s a strange fight to say the least. Nevertheless, the spectacle is targeted to take place at Coca-Cola Arena as a part of the Global Titans Fight Series event on Nov. 13.
Deji, brother of KSI, finally got his first boxing win a few weeks ago. Deji would knock out fellow YouTube star Yusef ‘Fousey’ Erakat on his brother’s undercard in the iconic 02 Arena. Before getting his redemption, Deji suffered three defeats in a row to Jake Paul, Vinnie Hacker and Alex Wassabi.
The YouTube star of 10M subscribers is expected to announce the Mayweather matchup very soon.

Opposing the 1-3 YouTuber-turned-boxer will be the 50-0 Mayweather. Since his last professional win over Conor McGregor back in 2017, Mayweather has decided to step away from pro bouts. Now he is solely focused on exhibitions and of course, making money.
Mayweather’s post-pro venture has seen him KO kickboxing star Tenshin Nasukawa and go the distance with Logan Paul and Don Moore. Following this, the boxing legend looks like he is double-booked against the likes of Mikurua Asakura and Deji, very likely his most inexperienced opponent to date.
