FLOYD MAYWEATHER may avoid fighting Jake Paul as the YouTuber ‘looks really good’ and has a THREE STONE advantage, Money Kicks said.
Mayweather, currently in talks to face Money Kicks, in June returned to the ring for an exhibition against Jake’s older brother Logan.

He weighed a career-heaviest 155lb (11st), compared to Logan, who scaled 190lb, two stone heavier.
Brother Jake also fights at 190lb, but naturally walks around as high as 200lb (14st), meaning he has THREE STONE on Mayweather.
The social media star’s size difference and and knockout record could be enough for the boxing legend to decide against facing the younger Paul.
YouTuber Money Kicks – real name Rashed Belhasa – told SunSport: “I feel like now, I can’t lie Jake looks really good.
“And the weight difference, Jake and Logan they’re actually really big people.
“They’re really big, especially Jake, he’s bigger than Logan. Now with Jake, I don’t think it will ever happen as Jake is really good now.
“Plus the weight difference, the weight difference is really big in boxing.”
Mayweather, 44, has been out of the game professionally since 2017 after beating UFC superstar Conor McGregor, 33, in ten rounds.
But he has had two exhibition comeback bouts since, the first against Japanese featherweight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa, 23, on New Year’s Eve in 2018.
Then two years later American vlogger Paul, 26, used his size to score a massive moral victory by taking Mayweather the distance.
But beforehand, it was renowned troublemaker Jake, 25, who stole headlines – quite literally – after nicking the boxing legend’s hat.
It sparked a mass brawl between Mayweather and the Paul brothers and fueled speculation of a follow-on fight with Jake.
I don’t think it will ever happen as Jake is really good now. Plus the weight difference, the weight difference is really big in boxing.

That never materialised, and Jake has since improved to 5-0 as a boxer while Mayweather is still negotiating a February 20 exhibition with Belhasa.
They are in talks to fight on top of the 700ft Burj Al Arab Jumeirah hotel helipad in Dubai.
Mayweather retired as the self-proclaimed ‘best ever’ with an unmatched 50-0 record and world titles in FIVE weights.
Whereas Belhasa has just ONE YEAR and two celebrity bouts worth of boxing experience, beating Anas Elshayib and Ajmal Khan.
He watched as Nasukawa was taken out in a round for taking the fight to Mayweather, whereas a cautious Paul was able to avoid an expected KO.
But Belhasa promised to go all out to score the mother of all upsets and attempt the unthinkable.
He said: “I will box smart in the beginning, but if I have the chance to knock out Floyd Mayweather, I’ll be a superstar overnight.”
