Floyd Mayweather vs Deji net worth: How superstars compare ahead of Global Titans fight | The Sun

FLOYD MAYWEATHER's clash with Deji Olatunji is growing closer and fans are beginning to get excited.

The legendary boxer, who boasts an incredible 50-0 record, will take on the Youtuber for his fourth exhibition fight since his 2017 retirement.

In contrast, Deji has one professional win on his record after beating YouTuber FouseyTube, which followed three exhibition losses.

Mayweather and Deji have had very different career paths going into this fight, but they are both similar in terms of being successful – and lucrative.

This is how their net worths compare before their fight in Dubai.

Floyd Mayweather JR estimated net worth – $1.2billion (£1bn)

The boxer, 45 – known as "Money" – is one of the highest-earning athletes ever and is renowned for his incredible wealth.

Mayweather has built his cash with a series of record-breaking pay-days throughout his career and claimed in 2021 that his net worth had passed $1.2bn.

Forbes reported ahead of his fight with Conor McGregor in 2017 that the $200m (£175m) that the boxer made from the fight put him over the $1bn mark.

Further money-spinning fights since then – included his exhibition fight with Logan Paul – has only helped the star increase in value.

Mayweather is estimated to have garnered over 24 million pay-per-view purchases throughout his pro career and even formed his own promotional firm – Mayweather Productions.

The "fight of the century" with Manny Pacquiao in 2015 also ranks as the highest ever pay-per-view bout in US history.

As many as 4.6m Americans bought the fight and watched Money pick up his 48th career win with an unanimous points victory.

All of this, along with other sporting ventures, means the fighter can boast an incredible net worth.

And he has rarely been shy about flaunting his cash with the 45-year-old once pictured at a table with stacks of money piled up around him.

He is also known to have expensive collection of stunning cars and houses which he regularly flaunts on social media.

Deji Olatunji estimated net worth – £5m

Deji had a very different route into boxing than Mayweather and built his name outside the ring.

The Tank is the younger brother of KSI and initially appeared in his Youtube videos.

Deji then branched off by making his own content, which included gaming and prank videos.

Like his brother, the 25-year-old was among the leaders of Youtubers taking on boxing and was on the undercard when KSI took on Logan Paul in 2018.

He has not always fared well in the ring and lost his first three fights.

But Deji's popularity has only continued to grow from his Youtube days and his net worth now reportedly stands at £5m.

Most of his success has come from YouTube, where he has over 9.7million subscribers and 3.4billion views on his channel.

Youtubers' money comes through adverts placed on their videos and subscribers signing up to someone's channel.

The platform is also an incredible vehicle for gaining name recognition and collating with other social media stars.

Deji's reputation could grow even further if he puts in a good performance against Mayweather, and he has revealed his dramatic physical transformation as he prepares for the fight.
