Floyd Mayweather says fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov happening

Adjust Comment Print

While many would argue that Nurmagomedov is not a draw, Mayweather is the king of pay-per-view and knows that being billed against the UFC lightweight champion who just dominated McGregor holds plenty of cachet among casual fight fans.

Mayweather, 41, beat Conor McGregor in a boxing bout in August 2017.

Of course, if Nurmagomedov chose to pull on the boxing gloves, then he would be following in the footsteps of McGregor who slugged it out with Mayweather previous year. "So, he gotta come to my world", Mayweather, told TMZ Sports. He added, "I'm my own boss".

"When I face Khabib, of course I am getting a nine-figure payday", he said.

Mayweather, who boasts a flawless 50-0 record and the unbeaten Nurmagomedov (27-0) would be certain to generate another bumper payday if they do fight.

"If you decide to fire [Zubaira], you should know that you'll lose me, too", he said.

Since that time, St-Pierre has said numerous times that he didn't believe the UFC would allow him to jump right into another title fight after the debacle that followed his last win against Bisping. Khabib, you got my leftovers.

Mayweather seems to have accepted the challenge. McGregor then fought with the Russian's camp as numerous brawls broke out.

Nurmagomedov and McGregor have temporarily been suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for their roles in the UFC 229 brawl, with a meeting set for October 24 to discuss further penalties.

Nurmagomedov told Mayweather "in the jungle there is only one king" in requesting a bout. Probably $US100m more, guaranteed. In a recent interview on ESPN's Ariel Helwani Show, St-Pierre said he has not officially retired but is likely only interested in one fight. "It could be somewhere between $110 million to $200 million guaranteed".

But UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier, who is a teammate of Nurmagomedov, declared the match-up a joke.

"(Floyd) can't make Khabib exhausted, we already know that", Ali Abdelaziz told ESPN's Brett Okamoto. Khabib brings 2.5 billion Muslims around the world, some of the richest countries in the world, and they're behind him. Khabib is going to start wrestling in the boxing ring.
