In response to the Mirror, Mayweather’s camp are deep into planning an event for November 13, despite the American in motion on September 24 with Mikuru Asakura in Japan.
As certainly one of Britain’s leading YouTubers, alongside his brother KSI, who has also featured in several exhibition boxing matches – it’s believed that Deji’s presence will attract a big audience to the Global Titans event, and his people were quick to comply with terms on what’s going to surely be an enormous payday.
Deji’s begin to his boxing profession was removed from glamorous, with defeats in his first three fights before an announcement win over Yousef ‘Fousey’ Erakat as a part of the cardboard at his brother’s event in August.

The 25-year-old sought the tutelage of former skilled Daley Perales, who has helped him with motivation and fitness, and the fruits of the pairing were clear to see in a snug win over Fousey.
Although a fight with arguably the best boxer of his generation in Mayweather isn’t yet confirmed, the YouTuber has teased at a possible reveal coming soon.
Within the week that rumours of the bout began to circle, he wrote on Twitter: ‘Fight announcement soon.’
Deji will certainly be earning the most important payday of his profession when he faces Mayweather
The cardboard for the event is believed to be plagued by high-profile names, with a mixture of influencers and skilled fighters set to feature in Dubai.

Love Island star Jack Fincham, Harley Benn – son of boxing legend Nigel – and Jake Paul are rumoured to be in talks to feature.
And fans will certainly be treated to a lavish and near-pantomime evening if any of Mayweather’s previous exhibitions are anything to by.
‘Money’ Mayweather has built his brand around excess and spectacle, and through his recent clash with Don Moore in 2021 he could even be seen having conversations with commentators in the midst of the fight, before stopping his opponent.
He also turned up two hours late to his exhibition clash with Nasukawa in 2018, before knocking the kick-boxer off his feet 3 times in two minutes, bringing the Japanese fighter to tears in a wierd display.
And the addition of several social media personalities, influencers and web stars, the exhibition element of the night will definitely be delivered on.
