Floyd Mayweather demonstrates his champion wood and defeats Deji Olatunji in six rounds in an exhibition fight

Deji Olatunji only lasted six of the eight scheduled rounds in the exhibition fight, in which Floyd Mayweather showed half of all his power

Floyd Mayweather Jr. was on Sunday afternoon in an exhibition fight against YouTube star Deji Olatunji, a result of the fight that did not surprise anyone, as Mayweather knocked out his rival in the sixth round of the fight held in Dubai, Arab Emirates.

Mayweather started the fight with small blows to Olatunji’s body during the first two rounds, but this was not always the case, because then, from the third round on, he began to throw punches with a little more power, the one he already has us. used to

Then Mayweather continued with his work in the exhibition, as he continued to demonstrate his skills in front of the entire crowd while hitting Olatunji, this being the reason why it was decided to end the exhibition in the sixth round.

Although it never seemed to reach his maximum power, it was seen how the blows connected by the 45-year-old boxer against his rival could be seen as if it had an effect on him, because little by little he felt more stunned . As a result, referee Kenny Bayless was seen stopping the match, which was more of a training session for Floyd than a ‘real duel’.

After six rounds, the fight opened, although the exhibition fight was scheduled for eight two-minute rounds. Also, it’s worth remembering that this fight will not affect Mayweather’s official boxing record.

Olatunji weighed in at 175.2 pounds and was nearly 21 pounds heavier than Mayweather at 154.3 pounds, but that didn’t help as he still fell to the fighter who retired professionally from the sport with a win over Conor McGregor in 2017.
