“Of course, he is who he is, he’s a world champ but I’m working hard too and I’ve got the youth on my side. 

“I would love to have a fight with Floyd Mayweather and I feel I could give him some problems.”

Most recently, in June he faced YouTuber Logan Paul – who weighed TWO STONE more – in an eight-round exhibition.

And Paul, 27, a pioneer in the new wave of celebrity fighters, took Mayweather the distance.

Saleh, 29, has boxed in similar bouts before but did also compete as a 14-0 amateur boxer during his teens.

And he is set to welcome Manchester United legend Patrice Evra, 40, into the ring for a shock fight.

It was scheduled for April 30 at the O2 Arena but has since been backdated.

Saleh is keen to share the ring with a legend of the boxing world after doing so with Old Trafford icon Evra.

He said: “Me and Mayweather, we are the same weight, so I’d love to share the ring with him.

“If that comes I would definitely take that, he’s around my weight and my height, same with Patrice.
