YouTube star Money Kicks to make pro debut on Anthony Joshua vs Oleksandr Usyk undercard after Floyd Mayweather bout axe | The Sun

YOUTUBER Rashed Belhasa will fight Kyle Paevie on the undercard of Oleksandr Usyk vs Anthony Joshua.

Belhasa, who is also known by his online moniker Money Kicks – is a 20-year-old YouTube personality from Dubai.



His bout with Paevie will be his first professional fight, having previously defeated Anas Elshayib and Ajmal Khan in exhibition contests.

Belhasa is the son of a billionaire and earlier this year had a fight set up with Floyd Mayweather Jr.

The pair met when Belhasa was young with 50-0 champ Mayweather visiting his father's zoo – a popular destination for celebrities including Lionel Messi, Nicky Minaj, Cardi B and AJ.

But the proposed fight was cancelled and now Belhasa will turn his attention to Paevie, who has failed to win any of his three professional fights.
