Floyd Mayweather’s coach ‘very optimistic’, the fighting legend will make a stunning return to professional boxing, putting his impeccable 50-0 record on the line

  • Mayweather takes on Youtuber Money Kicks in an exhibition match next month
  • His ‘special exhibition’ with Youtuber Logan Paul last June ended in a boomerang
  • Trainer Gerald Tucker thinks that ‘Money’ has more to offer than exhibitions











Floyd Mayweather’s coach is still “very optimistic” that the boxing legend will return to professional boxing, putting his perfect 50-0 record on the line.

The 44-year-old had hinted that his eight-round ‘special show’ with Youtuber Logan Paul in June last year could be his last appearance after the run-of-the-mill match ended in booing.

However, Mayweather will face Dubai-based Youtuber Money Kicks, real name Rashed Belhasa, in an exhibition match atop the Burj Al Arab hotel next month.

And trainer Gerald Tucker believes that ‘Money’ has more to offer than exhibitions.

He said, ‘I think he’s going to fight a few times a year.

“It’s great money and there are people like me, big fans of Floyd’s style, who want to see him in the ring just to show off his skills, which are unparalleled in the history of the sport.

“I think he will only do that for people like me. But I’m also optimistic that we’ll see Floyd fight one day.

‘I’m not giving away any secrets or anything, I’m just hopeful, I can feel it.

“None of what he’s said, just the way he looks in the gym and how easy it is for him to beat up people while sparring.

“And I mean guys who can become world champions in a year or two.

“So yeah, I’m very optimistic that we’ll see him in the ring one more time and put his undefeated, impeccable record on the line.”

Mayweather blasted Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in a 2018 exhibition but kept his distance from a heavier and taller Logan Paul.
