Floyd Mayweather next fight: Shock news emerges over 1-3 YouTuber opponent

Floyd Mayweather

Floyd Mayweather is one of the greatest boxers to ever glove up and step foot in the ring, retiring with a coveted 100% record after winning all 50 of his professional fights.

On the other hand, Deji is a famous YouTube star who shot to fame along with his brother, KSI, creating funny and gaming videos from their bedrooms over a decade ago.

Fast forward to 2022 and the YouTube brothers are two of the most successful content creators around, with both of them taking to the boxing ring as part of the influencer boxing scene.

Mayweather set to fight Deji?

The Mirror have exclusively revealed that Deji is going to step foot in the ring with Mayweather this year in a big-money Dubai exhibition bout.

It will take place in November as part of Money’s exhibition tour, carrying on stepping in the ring for his fans.

So far he has wins against Tenshin Nasukawa, the Japanese kick-boxer as well as taking on Logan Paul and Don Moore, the latter coming in May this year.

His next fight is against Mikuru Asakura, but he will announce the fight with Deji shortly after his latest exhibition bout.

Where is Floyd Mayweather vs Deji up to?

Deji’s team allegedly agreed to terms quickly soon after the fight was offered to them as Money looks to draw a bigger audience than his last fight did with Moore.

Rumours began about a possible fight between the two on social media this week, with the YouTube sensation announcing he has a fight lined up with an announcement coming soon.

This is a huge step forward for Deji who saw his last fight come on the undercard of his brother’s boxing event.

What are Floyd Mayweather and Deji’s records?

As previously stated, Mayweather is a 50-0 professional boxer, dominating the ring for his entire career, striking fear into those who dared challenge him.

On the other hand, Deji is an amateur who has been taking on fellow YouTube stars and influencers, with a 1-3 record, quite the contrast eh?

Deji did finally get his first win last time out as he stopped Fousey at the O2 Arena in a much more convincing performance on his brother’s undercard. What a jump that is though, from influencers to many people’s boxing GOAT!
