Floyd Mayweather vs Deji fight purse: How much superstars can make ahead of Global Titans boxing match | The Sun
7th November 2022

FLOYD MAYWEATHER returns to the ring for another exhibition bout this weekend when he takes on YouTuber Deji.

The pair will meet on the Global Titans show in Dubai this Sunday in what will be Mayweather's fourth exhibition since beating Conor McGregor in his final professional fight five years ago.


And while the bout will not count towards Mayweather's 50-0 record, he will still be earning millions for the clash.

According to The Mail, the boxing legend could earn up to £28million for the fight with Deji – who has won just one of his four bouts.

Meanwhile, YouTuber Deji – the brother of KSI – will be hoping to make a similar amount to Logan Paul when he faced Mayweather in an exhibition last year.

Paul is thought to have earned around £10m for the fight – which reportedly sold more than one million pay-per-views.

These huge figures come after Mayweather recently revealed he was paid one million dollars for simply taking a call about the fight with Deji.

Speaking to FightHype, he said: "They reached out to me and said 'Floyd, we'd like you in Dubai again'.

"The other one was supposed to be in Dubai and it got moved to Abu Dhabi, but they want me back in the UAE. I said 'let's make it happen,' but I also told them I won't get on the phone unless I know the numbers, then we can talk.

"They said, 'We'll get you on the phone' and they wired me $1m. So I got on the phone ASAP and said 'what's going on?'

"They said they wanted me to do [an exhibition] with a YouTuber, I said, 'Yo, let's make it happen'.

"We're doing these exhibitions and it doesn't matter what happens, I can get knocked out and I'm still 50-0!

"I did what I had to do when it really counted. It don't count now."

Mayweather has already claimed he will appear in another exhibition after the Deji clash.

But Global Titans CEO Uday Singh recently told Insider they also have plans for Mayweather to compete in another fully-fledged pro fight.

And he name-checked McGregor and Manny Pacquiao as potential rematches.
