FLOYD MAYWEATHER looks set to get his boxing gloves back on with a potential bout against YouTube star Money Kicks in the offing.
The 50-0 legend was last in the ring against Logan Paul back in the summer of 2021 and that fight ended without a result as it was an exhibition.

What has been said?
Money Kicks says that Mayweather is taking on this challenge because he wants to assert himself into the Middle East market.
"He did this because there's no boxers here. Me, I love to go into markets where people haven't done it. Start a trend," the YouTube sensation explained to SunSport.
"Over here I was the first YouTuber to get a million subscribers, still a new market.
"That's why, Floyd wanted a boxer from here, because I'm big in the Middle East and Asia. Now I can be big in the world."
Kicks also admitted to being a huge fan of Mayweather growing up.
"Floyd is always respectful, cool guy, humble guy, and before meeting Floyd I always had the TMT merch," he said.
"I took pictures and always wore his merch. Always a respectful guy.
"When I met him, he said, 'You're the guy'. I said, 'Which guy?' And he said, 'You're the guy, you always support me'.
"I didn't know that he knew me. It was four years ago, five years ago, and he's always shown love."
