The boxing scene has been incredibly drenched in YouTuber/influencer fights in most recent years, and these kinds of events have become increasingly popular. Floyd Mayweather fighting YouTuber is nothing new, just like the American fought Logan Paul in the boxing ring in June 2021. The news that YouTuber Deji will face boxing legend Floyd Mayweather in the ring was further revealed via social media.
Fighting announcement soon 👀

Probably one of the most amazing one-on-one fights. YouTuber Deji is reportedly ready to fight boxing legend Floyd Mayweather. King Sejong Institute’s younger brother won his first match in 2022 and will face one of the great players for now. Floyd Mayweather, who ‘resigned’ after 50-0 (27 KO), is fiddling with the YouTube boxing scene. He faced Logan Paul in a demonstration match held in June 2021, with an undetermined winner. Floyd Mayweather later assured that it wasn’t a real fight. Once again, the fight against Deji will be on display, as boxing reporter Donagh Corby’s report suggests. A bit of gossip about the fight was also shared by YouTuber Keemstar, citing his source.

Date and location of Deji vs. Floyd Mayweather fight
According to the Mirror, Deji will face Floyd Mayweather in a ‘big money wartime bout’ on November 13, 2022. This implies that the fight will take place seven days before the start of the Football World Cup. The fight will be part of the ‘Global Titans Fight Series’ in Dubai. The exact location of the match between Deji and Floyd Mayweather has not been revealed. In any case, reports have emerged that the two will fight at the Coca-Cola Arena in Dubai. This is a thrilling setting for Deji to fight and shows that he is willing to go anywhere to fight the legend of boxing.
As it is an exhibition, there is no winner other than a knockout because it is expected that there will be no judges. Rounds are also usually limited and shorter than full pro matches. Reports suggest that Floyd Mayweather’s group approached Deji to set up a bout. In any case, the array is said to never ‘beyond the 100% line’. Importance may still have twists in the story.
Deji tweeted on September 14th. King Sejong Institute’s brother, Deji, lost his first three matches, but offered to rectify the situation with his first win over Fousey in August. Meanwhile, his brother is further working to secure the next fight, and both Jake Paul and Andrew Tate taunt him. The reaction when Deji started fighting Floyd Mayweather was largely shocking. Some have referred to it as ‘the most unexpected thing I’ve ever seen’. Given Deji’s 1-3 record, few would expect Logan Paul to have a similar chance of success as Floyd Mayweather, even though Logan Paul held his position in their fight.
