Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr is primed for a return to the ring for an exhibition fight against YouTuber Deji, brother of KSI.
The American star's last outing saw him defeat Japanese mixed martial artist and YouTuber Mikuru Asakura in the second round via TKO at the Saitama Super Arena on September 25th.
His meeting with YouTube boxer Deji will be his fifth exhibition fight since his last professional victory against Conor McGregor completed an unblemished 50-0-0 record.

While there are no odds yet for Mayweather Jr vs Deji, the American will be expected to toy with his rival before cruising to a comfortable victory. However, no official winner will be declared, with the fight classed as an exhibition.
Mayweather Jr's days of being a world champion are sadly over, and only pride will be at stake when he shares the ring with Deji.
Mayweather Jr's professional record ended perfectly, with "Money" winning all 50 of his fights before retiring in 2017.
He stopped 27 of his opponents inside the distance and won 15 major world championships from super featherweight to light middleweight. He won the Ring magazine in five different weight classes and is widely regarded as the greatest boxer of all time in all divisions.
He was named the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world on two occasions in his career, and he was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in the class of 2021.
Since retiring, he has competed in four exhibition fights, against Tenshin Nasukawa, Logan Paul, Don Moore and Mikuru Asakura.
Deji, the brother of YouTube star KSI, has one win in four bouts so far.
He lost the first three fights of his career, but he ended that streak in August when he stopped Fousey at the 02 Arena in London.
Deji had previously lost to Jake Paul, Vinnie Hacker, and Alex Wassabi, but he registered his first win in fine style as he forced Fousey to quit in the third round of their fight.
November's card in Dubai is set to feature several high-profile names, with a combination of influencers and professional fighters set to share the ring.
Tommy Fury will face ex-Marine Corps Paul Bamba as the co-main event, with the younger brother of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury having won his first eight professional contests.
Other fights on the undercard include Bobby Fish vs Boateng Prempeh, Harley Benn vs Faizan Anwar and Jack Fincham vs Anthony Taylor.
