44-year-old Mayweather can take on 20-year-old Money Kicks in February 2022 in Dubai. After facing Logan Paul in June 2021, Mayweather hinted at putting a quell on his exhibition fights. But he is back to making another appearance and this time against a lesser experienced boxer than Logan Paul, i.e. Money Kicks.

Billionaire kid Money Kicks face-timed Logan Paul a few days back to take tips regarding the fight. Paul warned him about getting knocked out in the fight, and ‘Money Kicks’ agreed on it.

‘Money Kicks’ said, “I know that bro, I am not stupid bro. I don’t play myself. He is Floyd Mayweather”

Logan Paul at least had some experience in the sport with his back-to-back fights with KSI. Besides, he stood taller than Mayweather and had a prominent weight advantage to his side. Mone Kicks may not have any of these features and that can end up being an enormous problem for him.
