Floyd Mayweather’s exhibition bout with Deji was intended not to have an official winner, but the former pound for pound superstar ended matters in the sixth round when he had his man cornered. 

Mayweather had toyed with Deji from the opening bell and there was always a feeling surrounding the event that he could force an early finish.  

After spending much of the contest carrying KSI’s brother, Mayweather had seen enough before deciding to go through his impressive repertoire to end Deji’s challenge. 

On a show littered with numerous crossover fighters, Mayweather might not have to look far for his next opponent.  

Jake Paul sat ringside for Tommy Fury’s exhibition with Rolly Lambert while KSI was also in attendance supporting Deji. 

2023 is almost certain to see the aforementioned names feature on another event, but who will they all face?  

Mayweather is enjoying life on the exhibition circuit, and his most lucrative contest in this world could be just around the corner. 

All updates from tonight's show can be found below.
