YouTuber Deji will face his toughest challenge to date when he fights Floyd Mayweather in a boxing ring on November 13. An exhibition bout, the fight takes place inside the Coca-Cola Arena in Dubai.
One of the most successful boxers of all time, Mayweather has used his defense and smart boxing IQ to systematically destroy his opponents. Retiring 50-0 as a pro, Mayweather has since competed in four exhibition bouts. He has faced kickboxers, YouTubers, and MMA stars.
What does Mayweather think about Deji, the brother of KSI? Speaking to TMZ, it appears he is going into the fight blind.
“I don’t really know Deji. They just called me with the name. My team have done their homework, and we said ‘Why not? Let’s enjoy ourselves,’” Mayweather said. “I’m pretty sure he’s a tough competitor, a tough little guy.”
Mayweather is expected to make a huge payday from the bout. Per Mirror, Mayweather has stated he made around $15-$20 million for his exhibition against Mikuru Asakura.
Deji fought Jake Paul in 2018 on the undercard of KSI vs. Logan Paul I. Paul would beat Deji via TKO in the fifth round. Deji lost to Vinnie Hacker and Alex Wassabi in his next two bouts. He earned his first win in his last fight on August 27 by beating Fousey via TKO.
