Floyd Mayweather’s exhibition fight with YouTuber Deji is reportedly in doubt due to disagreements over glove size and round length.
It was believed there was an agreement to have the fight take place with 14oz gloves over eight two minute rounds.
But The Mirror has learned that the Mayweather camp now wants 10oz gloves and three minute rounds.

The glove issue has been going on for the past few weeks but seems to have gotten worse.
If the fight were canceled, it would be the third to be pulled from today’s event on the day of the fight.
The 50-0 legend is set for his fourth exhibition match since retiring from professional boxing, with his past opponents including another YouTuber and now WWE star, Logan Paul.
This weekend in Dubai, KSI’s brother Deji is in the corner of the opposing team, who has admitted that his only aim is to simply throw a punch.
The 25-year-old — whose real name is Oladeji Olatunji — recently claimed his first win, beating fellow YouTuber FouseyTube, having previously fallen to three consecutive defeats.
