Money Kicks said Floyd Mayweather could avoid fighting Jake Paul because the YouTuber ‘looks really good’ and has the advantage of the Three Stones.
Mayweather, currently in talks to face the Money Kicks, returned to the ring in June for a showdown against Jake’s older brother Logan.
He weighed a career-heavy 155lb (11th) compared to Logan, who increased to 190lb, two stone heavier.
Brother Jake also fights at 190lb, but naturally runs as high as 200lb (14th), which means he has three stones on Mayweather.
The difference in size of the social media star and knockout record could be enough for the boxing legend to decide to face the young Paul.
YouTuber Money Kicks – real name Rashid Belhasa – told SunSport: “I feel like now, I can’t lie Jake looks really good.
“And the difference in weight, Jake and Logan, they’re really, really big guys.
“They’re really big, Jake in particular, he’s bigger than Logan. Now with Jake, I don’t think it will ever happen because Jake is really cool now.”
“As well as the weight difference, the weight difference in boxing is really big.”

Mayweather, 44, has been out of the game professionally since 2017 after beating UFC superstar Conor McGregor, 33, in ten rounds.
But 2018 marks the first of two exhibition comebacks against Japanese featherweight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa on New Year’s Eve.
Then two years later, 26-year-old American vlogger Paul used his size to score a major moral victory by distancing himself from Mayweather.
But before that, it was 25-year-old Jake, the famed troublemaker who made headlines by donning the boxing legend’s hat.
This sparked a massive feud between Mayweather and the Paul brothers and fueled speculation of a follow-up fight with Jake.
I don’t think that will ever happen because Jake is really cool now. As well as the weight difference, the weight difference in boxing is really big.
Money Kicks on Floyd Mayweather vs Jake Paul
This never materialized, and Jake has since improved to 5-0 as a boxer, while Mayweather is still in talks with Belhasa for a February 20 exhibition.
They are in talks to fight on top of the 700-foot Burj Al Arab Jumeirah Hotel helipad in Dubai.
Mayweather retired as the self-proclaimed ‘best of all’ with an unmatched 50-0 record and world titles in FIVE weights.
Whereas Belhasa has the boxing experience of just one year and two celebrity bouts beating Anas Elshaib and Ajmal Khan.
He watched as Nasukawa was knocked out in round one to take Mayweather into the fight, while a cautious Paul was able to avoid an expected KO.
But Belhasa promised that he would do everything possible to eliminate the mother of all troubles and try the unimaginable.
He said: “I will box smart in the beginning, but if I get a chance to take out Floyd Mayweather, I will become a superstar overnight.”
