Mayweather took a routine win over Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in 2018, before facing YouTuber Logan Paul in 2021 in a historic influencer boxing fight, netting the American around £72 million.
He was also taken away by his former sparring partner Don Moore in May, but will now face Deji, brother of YouTube sensation KSI, in an event hosted by Global Titans Fight Series later this year.
Deji, who has 10.7 million subscribers to the online video platform, defeated fellow Yousef ‘Fousey’ Erakat last month via a third-round stoppage after losing his first three bouts.

At the moment it is unknown what the wallet will be for this fight, but Deji could expect a similar sum to Paul who made around £10 million from his fight with Mayweather in 2021, despite a winner of the fight never being confirmed. .
“Big thanks to Global Titans and my team for creating this incredible opportunity,” Deji said Monday.
“It is a privilege to headline this phenomenal spectacle in Dubai against the all-time great Floyd Mayweather. This is going to be fun!’
