Floyd Mayweather says fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov happening

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

They said it would never happen between Mayweather and his fiftieth opponent Conor McGregor and yet, in August of 2017, the world tuned in to make "The Money Fight" the second highest-selling pay-per-view of all-time.

When asked if the potential bout with the also undefeated Nurmagomedov would be a boxing or mixed martial arts contest, Mayweather was candid with his response.

Speaking to TMZ Sports, Mayweather added further fuel to the speculation by claiming that he was deadly serious about meeting the 30-year-old Dagestani fighter.

"Who's the A-side? He called me out, he's got to come to my world". We fighting. I mean, I'm my own boss. "It's very important. We have something pending there, so let's make the second fight".

Well, you obviously need two fighters for a match to take place, so figuring out what's happening with "Khabib's end" should probably be a top priority for Mayweather's camp, but aside from that it seems like Mayweather is determined to make the bout a reality. Probably 100m U.S. dollars more, guaranteed. "It could be somewhere upwards of $110 (million) to $200 million guaranteed".

Floyd Mayweather Jr. says he is ready to take on UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. Because in the jungle, there's only one king.

Of course, Mayweather wants any potential fight to go down in the boxing ring rather than the octagon. You must conduct yourself as a professional and it was a big melee.

Nurmagomedov had called out Mayweather days after the McGregor fight, saying: "Hey, let's go, Floyd". Only one king. Of course, I am the king because he can not drop McGregor but I drop him easily.

UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier doesn't think fighting Floyd is a good idea for the Russian UFC star. But you don't have to win to get paid and let's be honest, that's what this is all about in the end.

"Khabib better not try to box him". And Mayweather has his eyes set on a significant check awaiting him.

"Unless he's just going to go do it for money, because he is going to get beat".
