The undefeated boxing great Floyd Mayweather is scheduled to fight British YouTuber Oladeji Daniel ‘Deji’ Olatunji in an exhibition match on November 13 in Dubai. The announcement was made following Mayweather’s comfortable win over Japanese MMA fighter Mikuru Asakura in an exhibition match on Sunday in Saitama, Japan. Few people have been wondering the reason behind Mayweather’s immediate return to the ring. UFC fighter Chris Curtis believes that there’s only one explanation that is the boxing superstar might be in the crosshairs of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
The Instagram page Full Violence shared the official poster of Mayweather vs. Deji. The post caught the attention of the UFC middleweight standout, who hopped on the comments section to write:
“My man is definitely fighting some IRS problems”
Floyd Mayweather says he will not return to pro boxing
At 45 years old, Mayweather still looks to be in tremendous shape, as is evident from his recent performances. However, the boxing legend insisted that he’s staying retired from professional boxing.
“I retired from the sport, and I didn’t let the sport retire me,” Mayweather said at his Super RIZIN post-fight press conference. “I’m always going to put myself in a position now to where I, just like I was doing – fighting at the highest level. I was dictating and being in control.”
The self-proclaimed ‘The Best Ever’ added:
“I’m not going to go in there with no former fighters, former world champions, putting more abuse on my body,” he added. “I retired for a reason. I’m here to have fun and enjoy myself – sometimes three rounds, sometimes eight rounds, with guys that are going to help me entertain people.”
