Boxing Champ Floyd Mayweather’s Crypto “Money” At Stake In Lawsuit

Floyd Mayweather is all about the “Money.”

The self-proclaimed “TBE” executed a “legal bank robbery” when he fought social media star Logan Paul during summer 2021.

Now he is looking to do another exhibition match in Dubai, with a boxing ring on a helipad at the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah hotel in Dubai.

Who’s Next For “Money”

His opponent might be a local United Arab Emirates-based fighter named Rashed “Money Kicks” Belhasa.

“I grew up with lions — I am not scared of any human being,” Belhasa said to Sky Sports. “I will never fear any human.”

“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.”

In addition to being a fighter, Money Kicks is a social media influencer who projects his luxurious lifestyle in Dubai. If confirmed, it would not be the first time Mayweather has gone into another country to face a local star.

New Country. New Opponent.

He famously did a boxing exhibition at the Saitama Super Arena in Japan against Tenshin Nasukawa, where he knocked the local star kickboxer out in the first round.

“Mayweather’s team asked my team for a meeting,” said Money Kicks. “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.”

However, Mayweather has another battle brewing in another fierce arena.

“Money” vs. Crypto

Recently, Mayweather and Kim Kardashian have been sued for promoting a cryptocurrency called EthereumMax.

According to the Los Angeles federal court complaint, the two were paid to hype the blockchain-based digital tokens to their fans. However, the suit alleges that they were “causing investors to purchase these losing investments at inflated prices.”
