Floyd Mayweather is set to face Deji on November 13
The American knocked out Japanese MMA star Mikuru Asakura, 30, in two rounds but shipped some punches himself.
Mayweather, 45, returns on November 13 in a shock fight against Deji, 25, commonly known as KSI’s brother.
Trainer Daley Perales, who led Deji to victory in his last bout, is now tasked with drawing up tactics against the boxing legend.
Perales told The Mirror: “Deji’s got better feet, better movement [than Asakura]. So a very smart game plan is needed.
“You have to be smart where you choose your battles with Floyd because you don’t want to get in a toe-to-toe war with him; he’s experienced and knows how to make you miss and make you pay for that miss.
“You have to be very cute how you go about things and I’ve seen holes in his game because, yeah, he’s getting older now.
“Against that Japanese guy on the weekend he got hit with a big right hook that sent his head back, a jab that snapped him back and he looked a bit uncomfortable on the ropes.
“The trademark lead right hand and then roll underneath it that Floyd normally does, yes, it still looked sharp, but it also looked a bit lazy.

“He can’t stay young forever, can he? Deji’s just got to go in there and enjoy the experience because this is going to help him in the long term – he won’t be fighting Floyd ten more times, but this is going to help him in his YouTube boxing career.”
