DEJI channeled his inner Floyd Mayweather just weeks before their showdown – by copying the boxing legend’s trademark.
The YouTuber-turned-boxer will face off in a week-long exhibition bout with the former five-weight world champion on Sunday in Dubai.
Deji – KSI’s younger brother – left no stone unturned prior to his clash with Money – he was given many extra sessions.
And he practiced some of Mayweather’s mesmerizing pad drills before fight night.
Video footage of Deji rattling off one of Mayweather’s pad sequences, which includes defensive and offensive techniques, began circulating on social media last weekend.
And boxing fans were quick to comment, saying, “Go ahead, Deji.”
Another said: “Deji looks amazing!”
And another said: “Nice coordination but Floyd does it with no effort but lots of synchronization and he can translate it in the ring.”
One remarked: “I won’t lie he looks good.”
Another chimed in: “Deji loves head movements.”

Deji, who clinched his first win in August, is excited at the opportunity to share the ring with boxing kings – although he admits he doesn’t know what to expect from Mayweather.
Speaking on the Ril and Wils podcast, he said: “First and foremost, I expect fun because I know it’s going to be fun.
“I expect him to show his skills and everything because obviously people have said stuff about him.
“Thing is, although there’s no blueprint for beating Floyd, so I don’t really know what to expect.
“Ultimately, I want to go in there and steal some tech.”
