Floyd Mayweather vs Deji undercard to feature Love Island winner, Nigel Benn's son and Jake Paul sparring partner | The Sun
16th September 2022

FLOYD MAYWEATHER'S rumoured exhibition bout against YouTuber Deji is set to feature a host of stars from the celebrity and fight world.

The American legend is in shock talks to face Deji, whose brother KSI is a social media sensation, rapper and crossover boxer.

Mayweather is in discussions to fight Deji in Dubai on November 13 with a star-studded undercard being put in place.

According to The Mirror, Love Island winner Jack Fincham has been approached to make his long-anticipated boxing debut.

Fincham, 31, competed as an amateur and after his stint in the hit ITV series, he was due to lace up the gloves again.

But his 2020 debut was cancelled following a nose injury and although Fincham continued training, a rescheduled fight date was never announced.

Elsewhere, Nigel Benn's 25-year-old son Harley, who is 9-1, could face Anthony Taylor, 33, commonly known as Jake Paul's sparring partner.

It is added that Paul Daley, 39, who announced his MMA retirement in May, has also been contacted.

Deji, 25, went on a run of three losses in the ring but secured his first win in August, beating online rival Fousey, 32.

And it has somehow enticed Mayweather, 45, to pick the former gamer as his next exhibition opponent.

He first came back to the ring in Tokyo in 2018, beating featherweight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa, 24, in one farcical round.

Then in June 2021 he went the eight-round distance with YouTuber Logan Paul, 27, giving away TWO STONE in doing so.
