Floyd Mayweather’s next opponent looks absolutely tiny and dwarfed by Logan Paul

Floyd Mayweather is set to face another YouTuber following his exhibition draw against Logan Paul – with a social media influencer insisting that they are in the 'last stage' of talks.

The 50-0 former professional boxer, who won fifteen major world championships during a glittering career, is set to face novice Money Kicks in another mismatch.

The pair became friends back in 2017 while filming a video in Dubai, with the 19-year-old YouTuber going on to rack up more than three million subscribers and 162 million views.

Real name Rashed Belhasa, who has been called one of Dubai's richest kids, is the son of construction mogul Saif Belhasa, and took up boxing for the first time last year.

Money Kicks has a record of two victories without defeat having headlined two Social Knockout events at the Coca-Cola Arena in Dubai during 2021.

Building on his decision win over Anas Elshayib back in July, he knocked out Ajmal Khan a few months later, and has even posed with Anthony Joshua on Instagram.

With Logan standing at 6ft 2in, Money Kicks is far shorter at 5ft 6in, weighing an approximate 132lbs.

That makes the youngster two inches shorter and 20lbs lighter than the undefeated Mayweather, but that has not dented his confidence of an upset.

And the difference really is staggering in a picture of Logan and Money Kicks on Instagram.

Money Kicks told Sky Sports: "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 honour that he has called me out. I thought: 'This will go viral!'"

Money Kicks has taken huge inspiration from fellow YouTuber Logan Paul, and doesn't seem to have been put off by the 26-year-old's row with Mayweather over money.

He added: "Logan made history. The whole world was talking about their fight. He has already given me tips on how to fight Mayweather.

"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!"

Mayweather had teased last week: "Money Kicks is doing big things and I like what I am seeing."
