Tyson Fury is a showman, be it inside or outside the boxing ring and he never fails to steal attention. After knocking out Deontay Wilder in an epic heavyweight classic, he can land up against Dillian Whyte shortly. While the paper works are apparently in process, Fury is cherishing the hiatus and sending stern warnings to other people.

A desire to battle UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou is still sensible. But ‘The Gypsy King’ is also offering verbal assault to Floyd Mayweather, someone who is miles away from his combat radar. Well, Tyson Fury was recently in Dubai where he met Money Kicks, Mayweather’s next potential opponent.

While he backed the YouTuber to KO Mayweather, Fury also had a friendly interaction with Money Kicks. The pair even stood for a face-off, after which Tyson Fury screamed on Belhasa’s (Money Kicks) face. Well, the Internet star didn’t budge. The meet-up was supposed to be about the Floyd Mayweather vs Money Kicks fight. However, Tyson Fury managed to steal a portion of glory from it.

Money Kicks, a YouTuber turned boxer, is now one of the most possible names to bring Mayweather back into action. After a below-average showdown against Logan Paul in June 2021, ‘Money’ hinted at putting a quell on his in-ring stunts. But he is back to spinning fight talks and has assured of repeating another take in the ring.

Meanwhile, Mayweather is also looking at other options and has recently claimed to consider a professional fighter as his next opponent. So, Money Kicks is just one of the many names with whom we can see ‘TBE’ lock horns.

Fury seemed confident while making his bold prediction of seeing Money Kicks stop Mayweather in the ring. But it’s bizarre to picture unless done in reality. Floyd Mayweather is arguably the greatest boxer of all time, who has never seen defeats in his professional career. While several world champions failed, Money Kicks will clearly have to bring in something different to the table.

But Mayweather is soon to be 45 and is nowhere close to his prime. Therefore, young fighters can try their luck on him at this stage. Mayweather has retired professionally and his 50-0 record will remain flawless forever. That said, Money Kicks is still miles away from facing ‘TBE’, which makes Tyson Fury’s prediction pointless for the time.
