MAYWEATHER CHASING ANOTHER BIG PAYDAY
Written by Pate Narawa on January 12, 2022
Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr is headed for another payday against Money Kicks, real name Rashed Belhasa, who is said to be in the final negotiation stages to get that happening.
The 20-year-old, who is the son of a billionaire and had previously been labelled ‘Dubai’s richest teenager’, says the fight is set to take place on 20 February on the helipad at the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah hotel.
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!’
Belhasa also claims that Logan Paul, who went 8 rounds with Mayweather, has given him some tips.
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 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 honour. I will try my best. You never know – any punch can land, and I have heavy hands. If he underestimates me? A punch can come. Anything can happen. I am much taller than him. I’m getting there. Every day I am learning. I am still young but I’m getting better and better.
Meanwhile, earlier this month Logan Paul, claimed in a Twitter post that Mayweather still hadn’t paid him.
Yeah because the dirty little rat hasn’t paid me yet lol. It’s been 6 months.

One thing is for certain, Mayweather will be laughing all the way to the bank after this match.
