Widely regarded as the greatest boxer of all time, Floyd Mayweather is set for another high profile exhibition match today in Dubai, as 'TBE’ (The Best Ever) takes on Deji Olatunji, the younger brother of YouTuber-turned fighter KSI. The undercard, which includes Tommy Fury, is about to get underway. Here's how to watch a Mayweather vs Deji live stream, no matter where you happen to be in the world.
Mayweather famously retired from professional boxing in 2017 with an unblemished 50-0 record, but the lure of the ring, along with another sizeable pay day, appears to have been enough to draw him back for this, his fifth exhibition event. Those past show fights have seen the 45-year-old beat social media star Logan Paul, a couple of Japanese MMA fighters and his old sparring partner Don “Dangerous” Moore.
Deji, real name is Oladeji Olatunji, will be appearing in just his fifth fight ever when he steps into the ring for today's eight-round contest. The 25-year-old ended a run of three straight defeats with a recent victory against fellow YouTuber FouseyTube, but has admitted his sole goal is simply to land a punch against the legendary opponent on Sunday.
Chief support for the headline act comes with Tommy Fury taking on Paul Bamba, while the bill also see Love Island star Jack Fincham make his professional debut and Harley Benn – brother of controversial British fighter Conor – also in action. Here's all you need to know about how to watch a Floyd Mayweather vs Deji live stream today.
