The Oleksandr Usyk-Anthony Joshua rematch is just weeks away, which is also where famous YouTuber Money Kicks will make his professional boxing debut.

Money Kicks, whose real name is Rashed Belhasa, of Dubai, will fight British boxer Kyle Paevie on the undercard on August 20 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

“Finally announcing my Professional Debut 20th August in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia,” he wrote on Instagram.

“Extremely proud to be featuring on Joshua v Usyk card. Put in months of hardwork and hope to make my country proud on 20th August and fly the flag high for all the Emiratis & Arabs around the world. Big thanks to my team and everyone involved! Its go time”

The YouTuber was reportedly previously linked with fighting legendary retired boxer Floyd Mayweather on top the Burj Al Arab in Dubai, but the fight fell through. Mayweather instead had an exhibition match against former sparring partner Don Moore.

This’ll be Belhasa’s first pro fight after defeating Anas Elshayib and Ajmal Khan in exhibition bouts.

Also on the card for Usyk and Joshua’s anticipated rematch is Callum Smith who fights Mathieu Bauderlique in a second final eliminator. The winner will become a WBC mandatory challenger against current unified champion Artur Beterbiev.
