Floyd Mayweather Anthony 'Pretty Boy' Taylor Fight

Floyd Mayweather has another fight booked, and this time it’s against an actual fighter, as opposed to a YouTuber.

The legendary ‘Money’ Mayweather has been having fun in the twilight of his career, notching easy victories over far lesser opponents for the money he’s so aptly nicknamed after. It looks like this charade will continue, with the announcement of his latest fight against Anthony ‘Pretty Boy’ Taylor.

‘Pretty Boy’ was most recently in the spotlight due to a wild brawl against one of MMA’s most ridiculed fighters, Dillon Danis. Danis is scheduled to face English Youtuber KSI in a boxing bout, and during a staredown, Danis shoved his fist in KSI’s face and threw a drink at him. Taylor had no intention of letting this slide, as he and his entourage followed Danis and his crew outside of the venue, where a wild brawl took place. Giving Taylor some much-needed relevance.

This must have been enough relevance for Floyd Mayweather to take notice, as soon after word of their boxing bout was announced by none other than Anthony ‘Pretty Boy’ Taylor himself on Twitter.

Anthony ‘Pretty Boy’ Taylor set to become Floyd Mayweather’s latest victim

Using Twitter, Taylor announced his latest matchup against boxing phenom Floyd Mayweather:

“Next year I will be sharing the ring with the greatest fighter of all time which none other then @FloydMayweather my respect for this man is beyond. I might talk and fool around but I respect this man very much and vice versa!!! @FloydMayweather.”

Anthony Taylor last graced the boxing ring in an exhibition bout against Jack Fincham. Since it was an exhibition, there was no victor. According to sources, that exhibition made seven appearances inside the squared circle.

On the other side of the ring, will be boxing legend, Floyd Mayweather. Currently, his record sits at a perfect 50-0. He’s defeated the likes of Canelo Alvarez, Manny Pacquiao, and many other boxing legends. It will be very interesting to see how ‘Pretty Boy’ combats a man with as much boxing experience as ‘Money’ Mayweather.

What’s your opinion on this fight, and do you think it’s just more easy money for Floyd Mayweather?

Boxing great Floyd Mayweather has kept his winning ways intact with a sixth-round win over Deji Olatunji in Dubai, UAE. The 50-0 retired champion made his fifth money-making exhibition appearance since 2018. 

Mayweather’s approach to his latest exhibition match started out with confidence. He had his hands down and a smile on his face to open Round 1. Deji, whose overall boxing record was 1-3, was looking to shock the world. Mayweather landed a few shots to the body and face throughout the round. 

Mayweather taunted Deji and the crowd in Round 2. He landed more accurate shots as Deji defended. In between rounds, he danced and practiced some of his punches with one of his cornermen. Deji showed more offense in Round 3 but Mayweather’s defense was on display as he was slipping most shots with his elite head movement. 

Mayweather threw a combination of jabs and body punches in Round 4. Deji landed some of his own jabs and body shots in Round 5 as Mayweather smiled it off. The social media star did pushups in between rounds. 

Floyd Mayweather Became More Serious

The taunting by Deji changed Mayweather’s demeanor. He stalked Deji in Round 6 and started pouring on powerful shots, including a right hand, left hook and an uppercut. Deji had a fighting spirit but Mayweather’s combination of strikes were simply too much. He stopped Deji in Round 6 to remain unbeaten. 

During the post-fight interview, Mayweather gave props to everyone involved in the event, including his opponent Deji. 

I want to thank the whole country of the UAE, unbelievable crowd, unbelievable turnout, unbelievable people. I want to thank everybody that supported this event. I couldn’t do this without my dancing partner. ‘Deji, you’re a tough competitor. I’m proud of you, keep up the great work. Your brother KSI [is] a hell of a fighter also so I want him to keep up the great work…I’m proud of you guys.’”

Floyd Mayweather

On November 13, Floyd Mayweather will return to the squared circle for an exhibition bout with YouTuber Deji Olatunji.

Emanating from Coca-Cola Arena in Dubai, the event features a stacked night of fights that includes Tommy Fury competing in the co-main event and the boxing debut of former WWE Superstar and current AEW wrestler, Bobby Fish.

The card will also feature Anthony Taylor, an accomplished mixed martial artist who has competed under the Bellator banner. Taylor is most notable for being Jake Paul’s sparring partner. During a media event ahead of the boxing showcase scheduled for next weekend, Taylor decided to go into business for himself, jumping on the microphone and lobbying for a fight with Mayweather in a rant that left everybody in attendance feeling a bit awkward.

“Lets be honest, what I think we really want to see is ‘Pretty Boy’ Anthony Taylor vs. ‘Money’ Floyd Mayweather. Now that’s a fight! Personality, personality. I’m the most qualified fighter to be fighting Floyd Mayweather in exhibition. I fought on Showtime. Some of the biggest fights ya’ll ever seen on pay-per-view. I deserve to fight Floyd.

“He already said he’s never seen Deji. I’m the f*cking ‘Pretty Boy’ baby! Former ‘Pretty Boy’ now ‘Money’ Mayweather. Anthony ‘Pretty Boy’ Taylor vs. Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather. Dubai! England! Vegas! Come on baby! I’m here by myself! I’m here by myself. No daddy like Tommy [Fury]. No bodyguards. By myself. I can take care of myself. Anthony ‘Pretty Boy’ Taylor. Ya’ll remember that name. Remember that name. That’s what I’m talking about.”

Floyd Mayweather Tries to Respond to Anthony Taylor’s Outburst

Floyd Mayweather did his best to try and respond to Anthony Taylor’s comments but was hilariously stopped short of completing his thought.

“We all gotta be respectful. We all come from… We all got a background where we come from. He may be a good fighter. I don’t know.”

At that point, a member of the live crowd could be heard yelling, “He stinks,” getting a noticeable laugh from many of the media members in attendance and Mayweather himself.

Anthony Taylor currently holds a record of 7-5 in mixed martial arts per Tapology, but he is yet to find much success inside the squared circle. In five career professional boxing bouts, Taylor holds a record of 2-3, most notably losing to Tommy Fury via unanimous decision on the undercard for Jake Paul’s first fight with Tyron Woodley. Taylor competed on the Paul vs. Woodley 2 undercard as well, losing to Chris Avila via majority decision.
