Nurideen Shahid Shabazz also known as Deen the Great, is one of the most famous YouTubers in the world. Furthermore, he is also known for his fame on TikTok and his entertaining and quirky personality. The 23-year-old YouTuber has been getting a lot of attention lately for his involvement in KSI‘s “Misfits Boxing” events and Deen the Great is also part of the Happy Punch promo.
Furthermore, Happy Punch Promo is run by Fousey, who is also the founder of the controversial Daniel “Keemstar”. Every boxer wants to be like Floyd Mayweather when it comes to boxing, and reaching the pinnacle of the sport.
However, Deen the Great seems to believe that he is way better than ‘Money’ Mayweather in terms of lucrative accomplishments. He’s an undefeated influencer who’s been promoted by Misfits Boxing and is known for his recent brawl with Walid Sharks, but he’s making headlines for something else this time.
In a tweet, he stated he was better than Mayweather, which didn’t sit too well with people. Subsequently, Deen the Great stated:
Floyd Ain have 2 whips at 23.
