Floyd Mayweather is reportedly in the last stage of talks with YouTuber, Money Kicks to fight him in an exhibition bout in Dubai.
Mayweather announced he was coming back for an exhibition bout on a helipad for a spectacle fight. However, the YouTuber revealed to Sky Sports that talks to fight Mayweather are at the “last stage” – they will clash in “a real fight” over eight rounds on the helipad at the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah hotel in Dubai.
“I grew up with lions – I am not scared of any human being. I will never fear any human,” Money Kicks said.”
The fight caught many by surprise, but according to Money Kicks, it was Mayweather who reached out to the YouTuber about the possible fight.
“I never thought I would ever fight Floyd. He is the best fighter ever. When I was young, I would collect his ‘The Money Team’ caps! Mayweather’s team asked my team for a meeting. We thought: ‘No way will this happen!’ The same day of the meeting, I saw Mayweather saying: ‘I would love to fight Rashed.’ He is serious. It is an honor that he has called me out. I thought: ‘This will go viral!'”
The fight now appears to be close to happening and Money Kicks believes he has the power to catch Floyd Mayweather. He will be bigger than ‘Money’ and knows if he catches him, he could put him down.
“Mayweather is too fast – I need to be close and just go crazy on him. “I won’t lie to myself. Entering the ring with him is an honor. I will try my best. You never know – any punch can land, and I have heavy hands,” Money Kicks said. “If he underestimates me? A punch can come. Anything can happen.
“I am much taller than him. I’m getting there,” Money Kicks concluded. “Every day I am learning. I am still young but I’m getting better and better.”
