Weighing Floyd Mayweather and Deji: the difference is almost 10 kg, and Fury has a scandal


On November 13, a fight show will take place in Dubai (UAE), the main event of which will be an exhibition fight of boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. and YouTuber Deji.

Today was the official weigh-in ceremony of the boxers.

Don’t let the difference in weight bother you – this is fixed in written agreements.

Mayweather weight – 70 kg; Bentley’s weight 79.5 kg.

But the British light heavyweight Tommy Fury (8-0, 4 KOs) was not without a scandal. Beneath it, the scales showed 82.3 kg; under his rival American Paul Bamba (5-2, 4 KOs) – 79.2 kg.

Bamba and his team are outraged – they claim that Fury exceeded the allowable limit by 3 kg and should be punished for this at least financially. Tommy’s do not consider themselves guilty and insist that the fighters were initially given different contracts with different weight restrictions.

However, despite the spat, the fight seems to go ahead.
