Fans claim Floyd Mayweather deliberately missed punches against Deji as slow-motion footage emerges
FANS are claiming Floyd Mayweather was deliberately missing punches against Deji.
The 45-year-old boxer easily beat the YouTuber in their exhibition fight in Dubai on Sunday night.
Mayweather, undefeated in his 50 professional bouts, got hit in the fifth round.
But the American turned up the heat in the sixth and caught Deji with an uppercut, which ultimately led him to victory.
This all came after Mayweather was seemingly taunting his younger opponent earlier in the fight.
In the footage above, the veteran appears to be purposely missing punches.
And many supporters are all saying the same thing.
One said: “Bro is holding back” while another replied “people paid for this.”
A third responded: “Embarrassing.”
Despite the backlash, Mayweather reckons they put on a show for fans.

“Everyone wanted to see entertainment and that’s what we have them tonight.”
Deji responded by saying: “I’m tough! I want to thank everyone who came out, my friends and family, my team, everybody.”
