Floyd Mayweather Doubles Down On Khabib Boxing Bout

Khabib challenged Mayweather, and Mayweather seems to be up for it.

Floyd Mayweather has challenged UFC star Khabib Nurmagomedov to step into the ring for a mega-fight he says could be worth $US200 million. "We're fighting", Mayweather said. We fighting. I mean, 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.

Nurmagomedov extended his ideal 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. "So, he gotta come to my world", Mayweather, 41, told TMZ Sports.

Despite adding that he's not sure if he would ever return to the octagon, and Dana White not being interested in him coming back for big-money fights then leaving again, it's surely something that would entice GSP should the circumstances be right.

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

UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov poses before his fight with Conor McGregor. Probably $US100m more, guaranteed. "It could be somewhere upwards of $110 (million) to $200 million guaranteed".

Nurmagomedov is facing possible disciplinary action in Nevada following the stormy end to his victory over McGregor.

"I don't know no other fighter that has done the numbers I have done". His name has been linked to a comeback fight against Manny Pacquiao in recent months, however - and now, a potential bout against Nurmagomedov. This time it's Khabib Nurmagomedov who has Mayweather's attention. And Mayweather at his age, he was never a knockout guy even though he did have some knockouts. Because in the jungle, there's only one king.

"He said he knocked Conor McGregor down and I didn't, well, OK, Khabib, you go my leftovers, whoopee-do". He said I didn't knock him down.

Mayweather made it clear that he's on board, telling TMZ he wants to fight.

McGregor had been eyeing a rematch with Mayweather following his 10th-round TKO loss previous year.

"If you decide to fire him, you should know that you'll lose me too", Khabib declared.
