FLOYD MAYWEATHER will return for an eight-round exhibit – which his rival ‘Money Kicks’ calls ‘real battle’.
It happened after the boxing legend announced he would return to the ring on February 20 in Dubai.
YouTuber Money Kicks star – real name Rashed Belhasa – has been revealed he is negotiating to become a rival.
In an interview with Sports skyBelhasa revealed the bout will last eight rounds and will be a legal competition.
He added: “Mayweather is too fast – I need to get close and keep going crazy with him!
“I won’t lie to myself. Going into the ring with him is an honor. I’ll give my best. You never know – any punch can land, and I’m heavy-handed. .”
“If he underestimates me? One punch can happen. Anything can happen. I’m much taller than him.
“I’m getting there. Every day I’m learning. I’m still young but I’m getting better and better.”

Money Kicks has a record of only 2-0, with an empty victory over the anonymous couple Anas Elshayib and Ajmal Khan.
While Mayweather calls himself the ‘Best Ever’ 50-0 – who has retired as one of the greatest boxers of all time.
The American tennis player officially retired in 2017 after defeating former UFC champion Conor McGregor, 33, in a lucrative fight.
But he has returned twice since then, both in exhibitions, starting with a one-round knockdown against featherweight boxer Tenshin Nasukawa, 23.
More recently, in June, he was dropped by YouTuber Logan Paul, 26, over eight rounds who weighs more TWO STONEs.
Mayweather asserts after his time in the boxing ring ended – both in terms of expertise and spectacle competence.
I will try my best. “You never know – any punch can land, and I’m heavy handed.
‘Money Kicks’ in the face of Floyd Mayweather
But it seems the sport’s richest boxer ever has once again had a change of heart.
Belhasa said: “I never thought I would fight Floyd. He is the best fighter ever. When I was younger, I would collect his ‘The Money Team’ hat!
“Mayweather’s team asked my team to hold a meeting. We thought, ‘This can’t be happening!’
“The same day we met, I saw Mayweather say: ‘I would love to fight Rashed.’ He is very serious.
“It was an honor when he called me out. I thought: ‘This is going to go viral’.”
