YouTube rich kid Money Kicks says he's getting advice from Logan Paul on how to beat Floyd Mayweather
- Dubai-based internet celebrity
Money Kicksis talking about knocking Floyd Mayweatherout.
- The 20-year-old says he will be involved in a prospective exhibition with the former
Popular Dubai influencer Rashed Belhasa, also known as Money Kicks — a YouTube creator with almost four million subscribers — says he was inspired by Logan Paul who made "history" with his boxing exhibition with Floyd Mayweather.
The former five-weight world champion, renowned for his box office wins over Manny Pacquiao and Conor McGregor, recently announced that he will take part in an unofficial bout on a helipad on top of the iconic Burj Al Arab in Dubai.
The fight is scheduled for Sunday, February 20, Mayweather said.
When he made the announcement, Mayweather didn't name an opponent, but YouTuber Money Kicks has since stepped forward to say he'll be the one to square-off with the legendary fighter, should an exhibition go ahead.
He told Sky Sports this week that he was enthralled at Mayweather's post-boxing career, which has included two exhibitions — against a young kickboxer called Tenshin Nasukawa in 2018, and against Paul last year. The exhibition between Paul and Mayweather, which took place over eight rounds, was held in Miami Gardens, Florida.
"Logan made history," Money Kicks told the British publication. "The whole world was talking about their fight."
Money Kicks even said that Paul, a 26-year-old internet sensation with barely any boxing experience, has given him advice on how to box Mayweather.
"He has already given me tips on how to fight Mayweather," the 20-year-old creator said. "He told me to flinch a lot, and to move a lot, because Mayweather is a fast guy who has experience.
"If I knock him out, I would not sleep for a year!"
Both Mayweather and Money Kicks have been talking about an exclusive, Dubai-based spectacle.
However, not all of the exhibitions that Mayweather has hyped up have materialized.
The 45-year-old said in 2019, months after making Nasukawa cry after knocking him down three times in a round, that he'd take part in several more exhibitions that year.
He did not feature in any.
