Boxing: Mayweather Accepts Challenge To Fight Russian Khabib Nurmagomedov
Floyd Mayweather the retired boxing legend has not fought since he took his record to 50-0 with victory over the Irishman.
He was called out by Nurmagomedov following the Russian’s own victory over McGregor – and accepted the challenge.
“Oh, we fighting. He called me out. So, he gotta come to my world,” Mayweather told TMZ .
“I’m my own boss. So, I can’t say what’s going on on Khabib’s end. But, on my end, we can make it happen.
“When I face Khabib I’m getting a nine-figure payday. It’s more than the McGregor fight. Probably $100million more, guaranteed.
Nurmagomedov extended his perfect professional mixed martial arts record to 27-0 and retained his UFC lightweight title with a stunning fourth-round submission victory over McGregor in a fight which ended in controversy and a mass brawl.
Nurmagomedov told Mayweather “in the jungle there is only one king” in requesting a bout.
