Floyd Mayweather is continuing his tour in Dubai, where he’s scheduled to take on British YouTuber Deji. They call him “Money” for a reason, and right now he’s either making a lot of it because he can, or because he needs to.
As Money waits for a “real fight” with Conor McGregor, the boxing legend has a lot of exhibition bouts to get through. The Hall of Famer will face off against Deji in an exhibition match in the PPV event on November 13th.
Deji and Floyd Mayweather both shared their words on the upcoming event. Deji thanked Global Titans for crafting the opportunity for him to take on Mayweather and said that the fight will be fun.
Huge thanks to Global Titans and my team for creating this incredible opportunity. It’s a privilege to be headlining this phenomenal spectacle in Dubai, against the all-time great Floyd Mayweather. This is going to be fun!
Mayweather also expressed excitement for the upcoming match and thanked Global Titans. He said that he is honored to be “a part of such an iconic event in an iconic city.“
I am delighted to bring this incredible boxing experience to Dubai. Global Titans will give fans an unrivalled boxing match with a huge undercard. It is an honour to be a part of such an iconic event in an iconic city, and I would like to thank the Global Titans team for reaching out to me and giving back so much to the sport I love.
Deji is the brother of YouTuber KSI, who also dabbled in celebrity boxing and outpointed Logan Paul in a 2019 bout. Of course, Jake Paul said that Money is destroying his legacy with these exhibition fights. Logan Paul and Mayweather battled as well in an exhibition match last year.
