Floyd Mayweather says fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov happening

Floyd Mayweather says fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov happening

Floyd Mayweather knows how to make lots of money, so of course he's going to keep this talk up about Khabib Nurmagomedov in hopes of one day meeting in a boxing ring where he'll earn lots of money for likely an easy night's work.

Mayweather retired after his last fight, in which beat another UFC star, McGregor.

Nurmagomedov recently called out the retired boxing great, having extended his ideal MMA record to 27-0 by destroying McGregor in the pair's megafight in Las Vegas.

In comments to the TMZ Sports website, Mayweather was adamant that a fight with Nurmagomedov was "happening" provided it took place in the boxing ring.

"I'm my own boss, so I can't say what's going on on Khabib's end".

"I don't know what's going to happen (with Tukhugov), we'll see how it all works out".

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

Hof was running for Nevada State Assembly District 36, facing Democrat Lisa Romanov in the November general election. The sheriff said there was no preliminary indication of foul play but her office was investigating.

In the opinion of Canelo, Mayweather taking part in contests against UFC fighters like McGregor and Khabib are only hurting the sport. "I'm going to say somewhere between 110 million and 200 million USA dollars guaranteed". "It could be somewhere upwards of $110 to $200 million guaranteed".

A week ago, lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov was threatening to break his contract and leave the UFC, but now, according to UFC President Dana White, "It's all good".

McGregor made a brief foray into boxing a year ago to take on Mayweather, who moved to 50-0 in the paid ranks by stopping the Irishman in the 10th round of their highly lucrative showdown. Of course, I am the king because he can not drop McGregor but I drop him easily.

And he's adamant the fight will be in the boxing ring. You must conduct yourself as a professional and it was a big melee. Of course, I am the king because he can not drop McGregor but I drop him easily. Khabib better not try to box Mayweather. OK, Khabib. You got my leftovers. "What is he doing, man", he told UFC writer Ariel Helwani.

"He's insane. He is going to start wrestling".

In a direct response to the fact that the Russian cited his second-round knockdown of Conor as a one-up of sorts over him, Mayweather was quick to make it clear that it mattered little.
