In perhaps one of the most incredible head-to-head fights yet, YouTuber Deji is reportedly set to fight boxing legend, Floyd Mayweather. KSI’s younger brother reportedly won his first fight of 2022 and now he’s ready to take on one of the big boys. Floyd Mayweather, who ‘resigned’ with a record of 50-0 (27 KOs), has been toying with the YouTube boxing scene. He faced Logan Paul in an exhibition match in June 2021, with no outright winner being pronounced. Floyd Mayweather later guaranteed that it was anything but a real fight. Once again, his fight with Deji would also be an exhibition, according to a report by boxing reporter Donagh Corby. YouTuber Keemstar also shared gossip about the fights, referring to his own sources.

Date and place of the fight between Deji and Floyd Mayweather
According to The Mirror, Deji will face Floyd Mayweather in a ‘big money exhibition fight’ on November 13, 2022. So, he implies that the fight will take place seven days before the World Cup of Soccer begins. The fight will reportedly be part of the ‘Global Titans Fight Series’ taking place in Dubai. The exact location of the fight between Deji and Floyd Mayweather has not been revealed; in any case, reports suggest the two will fight in Dubai at the Coca-Cola Arena. This is certainly an exciting arena for Deji to fight and it shows that he is willing to go anywhere to take on the boxing legend.
Since it is an exhibition, there are no judges expected, so there will be no winner except for a knockout. The rounds are normally restricted as well, shorter than a full professional fight. According to the report, Floyd Mayweather’s group approached Deji about setting up the fight. In either case, the array is said not to be ‘100 percent on the line’; it is important that there are still twists in the story.
Deji tweeted on September 14th, Fight announcement coming soon. KSI’s brother Deji lost all three of his opening fights but offered to set things right with his first win over Fousey in August. Meanwhile, his brother also struggles to secure his next battle, with Jake Paul and Andrew Tate provoking him. The reaction to Deji landing a fight with Floyd Mayweather has generally been one of surprise, with some referring to it as “the most unexpected thing I’ve ever seen.” Given Deji’s 1-3 record, few would anticipate that he should have the potential for success against any appearance of Floyd Mayweather, even though Logan Paul held his own in their fight.
