Floyd Mayweather Is Down For Khabib Nurmagomedov Fight

Floyd Mayweather responds to call-out from Khabib Nurmagomedov as possible super-fight looms

Mayweather says his purse could be double what he earned from a similar showdown with Conor McGregor in 2017. "I'm my own boss".

Oh, and he did say that he and Khabib are going to fight, which we hope he's wrong about. But, on my end, we can make it happen. "So, he gotta come to my world", Floyd says. Nurmagomedov's manager has been coy about the bout, but is certainly not shutting it down, saying that he thinks the Dagestani fighter would at least go the distance with Mayweather, something that McGregor was unable to do.

"It will be more than the McGregor fight". There's good reason for that, McGregor reportedly banked close to $100 million for the spectacle.

He recently appeared in an online video alongside Mayweather adviser Leonard Ellerbe, telling Mayweather, "We have to fight".

"You have a guy who is 50-0, a guy who is 27-0 - both have never tasted defeat". [But] in the jungle there is only one king. He said I didn't knock him down.

Mayweather has gone from talking about Khabib to teasing a rematch with McGregor and then even claiming he would fight Canelo Alvarez.

The couple were also introduced to Lynx, a short-legged echidna, a cute but spiky mammal from the region. As they departed Daphne praised the couple, "It's so wonderful the two of you".

Mayweather said: "Vegas is the fighting capital and after the fight you have to conduct yourself like a true professional, not just in the ring, but outside the ring also". But let's not all forget there was a period of time where the idea of seeing Mayweather square off with McGregor in a boxing ring sounded implausible - yet, there we all were last August watching it happen.

Nurmagomedov - who calls himself "the Mayweather of MMA" - is contracted by the UFC but has reportedly been headhunted by professional wrestling firm WWE.

Floyd Mayweather took his mind off a possible fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov by attending LA Clippers' NBA clash with Denver Nuggets. Khabib brings 2.5 billion Muslims around the world, some of the richest countries in the world, and they're behind him. Khabib better not try to box Mayweather.

"Don't pay attention to it", White told ESPN.

"He's insane. He is going to start wrestling". He's not a boxer, and one-punch knockout power isn't a direct translation from the UFC to a boxing ring. "He's going to get beat so bad he is going to start wrestling".
