For the third time in 2022, Floyd Mayweather will be competing in an exhibition bout. He will face off against YouTuber Deji in Dubai on November 13.
Mayweather has been busy since he retired in 2017 against Conor McGregor. It is expected to be another big payday for “Money,” whose net worth is over $450 million. During the introductory press conference, Mayweather stated that he was offered a price he couldn’t refuse in order to fight Deji.
“They said we’ll get you on the phone, and they wired me one million dollars,” said Mayweather, via Yahoo Sports. “So I got on the phone ASAP and said what’s going on? They said they wanted me to do [a fight] with a YouTuber and I said, yo, let’s make it happen. We’re doing these exhibitions and it doesn’t matter what happens, I can get knocked out, and I’m still 50-0!”
Deji Olatunji is the brother of KSI. He fought and lost to Jake Paul in 2018 on the undercard of KSI vs. Logan Paul I. Later, Deji lost to Vinnie Hacker and Alex Wassabi in his next two bouts but earned his first win in his last fight on August 27 against Fousey.
