Salt Bae tells ‘Money Kicks’ he wants to be next star to make boxing debut

Social media sensation Salt Bae has told Rashed 'Money Kicks' Belhasa that he wants to be the next social media star to move his famed career over to the boxing ring.

The Turkish restaurateur – whose real name is Nusret Gokce – became an internet sensation back in 2017 for his notorious seasoning style, and has since amassed 41.5 million followers on Instagram.

The Turk’s famous salting clip has seen him become one of the most recognised faces on social media leading to him working across the world, including London where he opened his Nusr-Et Steakhouse in September last year.

Since its opening a number of famous faces have dined in the London eatery, with a gold-wrapped steak reportedly costing diners £630, whilst a burger comes in at £100.

Following his success in both the social media and restaurant business, Gocke is now reportedly interested in trying his hand at boxing after a discussion with Belhalla.

YouTube star Belhasa – who was dubbed Dubai’s richest teenager – is set to take on boxing legend Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition bout on the helipad of the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah hotel.

The 20-year-old recently dined in Gocke’s Dubai-based restaurant, and shares his evening out via a video where he discusses his upcoming fight with Mayweather.

Following his meal in the Turk’s restaurant it is reported that Salt Bae revealed to Belhasa ‘he wants to get into boxing’.

The 20-year-old shared an image of the pair to his two million Instagram followers with the caption: “@Nusr_et told me he wants to fight !! Who do you want to see him fight?”

If he does enter the boxing scene, Gocke will follow in the footsteps of a number of social media influencers including Belhasa.

The youngster recently spoke about the potential of him fighting ‘Money’ Mayweather next month, and revealed he has been in contact with fellow internet star Logan Paul, who previously fought Mayweather himself in an eight-round exhibition last year.

Belhasa told Sky Sports: “Logan [Paul] made history. The whole world was talking about their fight.

The 26-year-old was then followed into the ring by brother and fellow internet star Jake who has since turned professional, most recently beating former UFC champion Tyron Woodley in back-to-back fights.
