Floyd Mayweather Reportedly Set To Fight KSI's Brother Deji

Floyd Mayweather is set to fight YouTube star Deji Olatunji in a big-money exhibition in Dubai on November 13th, according to The Mirror 

This latest news surrounding the retired former boxing champion follows reports in recent months that he was holding talks to have a professional rematch with MMA star Conor McGregor, having retired after beating the Irishman to end his career with a 50-0 record.

The update also comes after the announcement of a bout with Japanese YouTuber and MMA star Mikuru Asakura, which takes place later this month.


Mayweather, 45, has been making tens of millions of dollars throughout his retirement tour that has seen him battle in Japan, Dubai and Miami. He knocked out Japanese kick-boxer Tenshin Nasukawa in 2018 before facing YouTuber Logan Paul in 2021 and ex-sparring partner Don Moore in May.

Now, he is set to fight Deji, younger brother of fellow YouTuber and boxer KSI. Deji lost his first three boxing matches at the white-collar level, being stopped by Jake Paul in 2018, then by model Vinnie Hacker in 2021. He lost a split-decision to fellow YouTuber Alex Wassabi earlier this year, but came back with a stunning stoppage win over Yusef 'Fousey' Erakat at The O2 Arena on the undercard of his brother's boxing return last month.
