According to the MirrorMayweather’s camp is busy planning an event for November 13, despite the American in action on September 24 with Mikuru Asakura in Japan.

As one of Britain’s leading YouTubers, alongside his brother KSI, Deji’s presence is believed to draw a large audience to the Global Titans event, and his people were quick to agree to terms on what is sure to be a huge payday.

Deji’s start to his boxing career was far from glamorous, with defeats in his first three fights to a statement win over Yousef ‘Fousey’ Erakat being part of the card at his brother’s event in August.

The 25-year-old sought the custody of former professional Daley Perales, who has helped him with motivation and fitness, and the fruits of the pairing were clearly seen in a comfortable win over Perales.

While a fight with arguably the greatest boxer of his generation in Mayweather hasn’t been confirmed yet, the YouTuber has teased about a potential reveal coming soon.

In the week that rumors of the fight were circulating, he wrote on Twitter: “Fight announcement coming soon.”

Love Island Jack Fincham, Harley Benn – son of boxing legend Nigel – and Jake Paul are said to be in talks to play a part.

And fans are sure to be treated to a lavish and almost pantomime night if any of Mayweather’s past exhibitions have anything to offer.

‘Money’ Mayweather has built his brand around excess and spectacle, and during his recent clash with Don Moore in 2021, he was even seen engaging in mid-fight conversations with commentators before stopping his opponent.

He also showed up two hours late to his exhibition collision with Nasukawa in 2018, before knocking the kickboxer off his feet three times in two minutes, causing the Japanese fighter to burst into tears in a strange way.

And the addition of various social media personalities, influencers and internet stars will certainly live up to the exhibition element of the evening.
