Floyd Mayweather’s stint on the boxing exhibition circuit goes on as he takes on Deji. The fight takes place on Sunday, November 13 at Coca-Cola Arena in Dubai, UAE.
Floyd Mayweather vs. Deji
The unbeaten boxer sports an unblemished 50 – 0 professional record. His last professional fight took place back in 2017 when he defeated Conor McGregor. Since retiring from professional competition Mayweather had found his second calling as an exhibition fighter. So far he beat such individuals as Japanese superstars Tenshin Nasukawa and Kai Asakura. Between those two bouts, he went the full distance with Logan Paul and his former sparing partner, Don Moore.
Deji is the younger brother of another YouTube personality turned boxer, KSi. He made his boxing debut back in August 2018 on the undercard part of KSi vs. Logan Paul. Deji lost to Jake Paul, who wasn’t a pro at that time. He also lost the next two consecutive fights. However, he was able to put an end to his losing streak as he beat a fellow YouTuber, Fousey. The two of them met on the undercard of Misfits Boxing and DAZN joint venture fight card on August 27 at The 02 in London.
