Floyd Mayweather Jr. is back for another payday. This time around it is another exhibition versus another character from the world of social media. However, unlike when he faced Logan Paul last year, this opponent is hardly a household name.
Deji, formerly known as ComedyShortsGamer, is an English YouTuber and Twitch gamer best known for being the younger brother of KSI. As an amateur boxer he is 0-3 with TKO losses to Jake Paul (on the same card their brothers fought), Vinnie Hacker and a split decision loss to Alex Wassabi. As a pro he’s 1-0, with a TKO win over fellow YouTuber Fousey.
The event, which is being aired on DAZN in most places, and FITE.tv in a few others, also features Tommy Fury versus Paul Bamba in a six round pro bout. There is also an appearance by former WWE wrestler Bobby Fish and Love Island contestant Jack Fincham.
Mayweather vs. Deji PPV begins at 1 p.m. ET with the main event ringwalks expected at 4 p.m. ET. The prelims will start at 10:40 a.m ET and air live here on Bloody Elbow (see stream at the top of the page).
