Floyd Mayweather To Make Boxing Return In February, Names Possible Opponent
Floyd Mayweather is making another return to the boxing ring after outboxing Logan Paul months ago in June.
Mayweather confirmed he will feature in an exhibition match on February 20 in Dubai, just four days before his 45th birthday. The bout will be staged on Burj Al Arab Jumeirah’s helipad.
“February 20th, we haven’t chosen an opponent yet but I look forward to it and hopefully we give you guys something to see,” Mayweather said.
The boxing legend officially retired in 2017 after defeating UFC star Conor McGregor in an unheard-of crossover fight.
But he returned twice for exhibition fights. The first was a quick finish of featherweight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa and the second went the distance with Paul.
Mayweather added that they may do more than one fight to entertain people. But he clarified that he doesn’t want to call his matchup on February 20 a fight, but more a “limited edition boxing showcase.”
Though they have not officially confirmed an opponent, Mayweather did confirm rumors that YouTuber and social media giant “Money Kicks,” whose real name is Rashed Belhasa, could be his opponent.
“We don’t really know, I think since he’s from here it’d be great….,” Mayweather added. “But the kid Money Kicks – he’s doing great things and I’m liking what I’m seeing. We’ll see.”
