Floyd Mayweather gave a couple of kids a picture to remember during a London press conference for his upcoming exhibition.
Mayweather was at York Hall to come face-to-face with the latest in a string of exhibition opponents. This time around, he faces Deji – a well-known YouTuber and brother of KSI. The event takes place at Dubai’s Coca-Cola Arena on November 13, and will be broadcast live on DAZN PPV.
As with all of Floyd’s recent events, fans are expecting to tune in to see him put on a show rather than for a competitive fight. It seems Deji himself knows this, saying he’s already won by just being involved and that he believes it’s possible he may land one punch.
As the two main event fighters faced off – rather, hugged and posed for the cameras – Mayweather paused proceedings to help a couple of young fans up on the stage to get a snap of their own.

Whilst ‘Money’ Mayweather’s accomplishments inside the ring have landed him in the Boxing Hall of Fame, what he does now to market himself has to be commended too. He’s popped up in WWE, fought Conor McGregor in the crossover bout of all crossover bouts, and continues to make a killing facing the likes of Logan Paul and Deji in these exhibition outings. It’s small moments with fans like the one above that really communicate just how good he is at pleasing a crowd.
The rest of the press conference wasn’t so heartwarming, though. John Fury, who was accompanying his son to hype his undercard bout, tried to start a fight with Anthony Taylor, a former MMA fighter and Jake Paul sparring partner.
