Mayweather, 45, has been involved in three in-ring mega-money displays since to continue to build his bank balance.

The first was in 2018 against featherweight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in Tokyo who was promoted by RIZIN.

He marked his comeback by knocking out 23-year-old Nasukawa in one round of their lag.

Mayweather then faced YouTuber Logan Paul, 27, in June 2021 and gave TWO STONE in the show fight.

He went the full distance of eight rounds as Paul technically avoided defeat.

Mayweather’s last in-ring cameo came in May against former sparring partner Don Moore and he is now set to face Japanese MMA star Mikuru Asakura on September 25.

However, The Mirror claims the American is looking to “add another social media sensation to his roster by taking on influencer Deji” in Dubai later this year.

The report says he will announce the fight with the Brit shortly after his fight with Asakura.

They also add that “sources have indicated that Mayweather’s team is deeply planning a star-studded Global Titans Fight Series event on November 13th” to take place at the same Coca-Cola Arena where he fought Moore.

Deji, 25, finally recorded his first in-ring victory last month in brutal style.

The Londoner, who rose to fame as the younger brother of rapper KSI, had lost all three of his previous fights.

But American influencer Fousey was simply no match for southpaw Deji, who dominated from the first round before his opponent’s corner threw in the towel in the third.
