Belhasa has never fought in boxing as a professional, but competed in two exhibition bouts for the ‘Social Knockout’ promotion last year.
Since knocking out Conor McGregor in 2017 to go 50-0 and then retiring, Mayweather has had two exhibition fights.
He went eight rounds with Logan Paul last June and knocked out Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa on New Year’s Eve in 2018.
