Floyd Mayweather recently returned to the headlines after announcing that he will once again be coming out of retirement for an exhibition fight in Dubai next month.

Earlier this week, the retired boxer told reporters he will be returning to the ring to fight atop a helipad at Dubai’s iconic Burj Al Arab Hotel. Reports have indicated that he is looking to fight YouTuber Reshad “Money Kicks” Belhasa at the February 20th exhibit fight. While there is currently no opponent confirmed, Mayweather shared, “February 20th, we haven’t chosen an opponent yet but I look forward to it and hopefully we give you guys something to see.” Mirror also received a quote from the boxer regarding Money Kicks, “I spoke with [my advisors] about Money Kicks. We don’t really know. He is from [Dubai]…Money Kicks is doing big things and I like what I am seeing.”

The famous helipad on the Burj Al Arab Hotel overlooks the entire Dubai and has previously been the site of other major sporting events including a workout by Anthony Joshua and a tennis match between Andre Agassi and Roger Federer. When discussing how it will be to host the event at the venue, Mayweather said, “It’s going to be a very special crowd, not too many people. So if you get the chance to come here, you must know, you’re very, very special for this event.”
