But according to The Mirror, Mayweather has demanded the fight be over three minute rounds, not two, with 10oz gloves worn.

The bout is contracted to 14oz gloves over eight, two minute rounds.

And with the dispute at one point ongoing, it left the fight in jeopardy.

But Mayweather was seen warming up for the bout on his Instagram story with the dispute seeming to be resolved.

Deji’s friend Ryan Taylor had revealed there was a disagreement over the gloves earlier in the week.

He told Fred Talks Fighting: “Deji’s got a way of surprising people, we’ll see what happens. Deji’s got power man.

“We were literally just talking about it there and having a joke about it because there were some conversations about 10oz gloves.

“Everyone’s been talking about gloves but yeah, Deji’s tough. We’re going to see what happens.”

Mayweather, 45, is boxing in his fifth exhibitions since officially retiring in 2017 after beating UFC superstar Conor McGregor, 34.

He hit the scales at 70kg, or 11 stone, which is his second highest weight ever.

Deji, 25, was up just before and came it at 79.5, or 12st 5lb to take a much needed weight advantage into the bout.
