However, Mayweather dominated most of the competition, and would like to do the same against Money Kicks – real name Rashed Belhasa.

The Middle East YouTube vlogger became famous for flaunting his lavish lifestyle online.

And now he is on the verge of going up against the man he proclaims as his boxing idol, Mayweather.

When is the Floyd Mayweather Vs Money Kicks?

Although not confirmed yet, Mayweather’s clash with the Money Kicks will take place on Sunday, February 20.

Money Kicks told SunSport: “It’s in the final stages. It’s up to the lawyers.

“We’ll make a deal, I think it’s going to happen. The date is set, it’s in the final stages.

“Maybe there will be a big announcement in a couple of days.”

The fight will take place in Dubai, with the rumored venue being a helipad on top of the world-famous Burj Al Arab.

What channel is this on and can it be streamed live?

  • A TV channel hasn’t been confirmed yet, but it will likely be on pay-per-view in the UK.
  • Mayweather’s clash with Paul was broadcast live at the Sky Sports box office last summer.
  • The former five-weight champion’s fight with the money kicks could land at the Showtime PPV in the US

What has been said?

Money Kicks says Mayweather is taking on this challenge as it seeks to establish itself in the Middle East market.

The YouTube sensation explained to SunSport, “They did it because there are no boxers here. Me, I like to go to markets where people haven’t. Start a trend.”

“I was the first YouTuber here to get a million subscribers, yet a new market.

“That’s why Floyd wanted a boxer from here, because I grew up in the Middle East and Asia. Now I can grow up in the world.”

The Kicks also admitted to being a huge Mayweather fan growing up.

“Floyd is always the respectable, quiet guy, polite guy, and I always had a TMT merchant with me before I met Floyd,” he said.

“I took pictures and always wore his merchant. Always a respectable guy.

“When I met him, he said, ‘You are the man.’ I said, ‘Which man?’ And he said, ‘You are the man, you always support me’.

“I didn’t know he knew me. That was four years ago, five years ago, and he’s always shown love.”
