TheBreadBatch confirms Floyd Mayweather v Deji match will take place in November at Dubai Coca Cola Arena

Taking to social media, TheBreadBatch wrote: “Confirmed – Deji vs. Floyd Mayweather. Deji VS Mayweather 100% confirmed now‼️ Global Titans was supposed to host Floyd’s last show and now they are about to announce Deji like a new signature.”

The 50-0 boxing icon has earned tens of millions on a retired world tour that has seen him fight in Japan, Miami and Dubai since quitting professional competition with a victory over Conor McGregor in 2017. He knocked out the Japanese kickboxer. Tenshin Nasukawa in 2018 before facing YouTuber Logan Paul in 2021 and former sparring partner Don Moore in May.

Now Mayweather is looking to add another social media sensation to his roster when he takes on British influencer Deji in Dubai later this year. The American is already scheduled for a fight against Mikuru Asakura in Japan on Saturday week, and will likely announce his fight with Deji, whose brother is chart-topping rapper KSI, shortly after.

Sources at Mirror Fighting have reported that Mayweather’s team is planning a star-studded Global Titans Fight Series event on November 13, a Sunday night, at the Coca-Cola Arena where he fought Moore. Typically these exhibitions are six or eight rounds of two minutes long and no judge scores at ringside, meaning if they go the distance no one loses.
