'We’re fighting': Floyd Mayweather says Khabib Nurmagomedov bout will happen

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

After he replied to the challenge on Instagram, The 50-fighter spoke to TMZ in Beverly Hills and confirmed his interest in fighting another UFC star but stressed how it would have to be in a boxing fight because Khabib, the UFC Lightweight champion, was the one who made the call-out.

But Mayweather says any fight with the mixed martial arts great would have to take place in the boxing ring.

Mayweather, who came out of retirement to defeat McGregor in a money-spinning fight in Las Vegas past year, stressed though that any fight with Nurmagomedov would take place under boxing rules. "Of course we know, Vegas is the fighting capital, and after the fight you have to conduct yourself like a true professional, not just in the in the ring, but outside the ring also... it was a big melee [with McGregor's team], I haven't had a chance to see it, but from what I heard it was a insane melee". "So, he gotta come to my world", Mayweather said.

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

"When I face Khabib, I'm getting a nine-figure payday". "We're fighting", Mayweather said.

This time it's Khabib Nurmagomedov who has Mayweather's attention. Probably $US100m more, guaranteed. "I'm going to say somewhere between $110 and $200 million guaranteed".

Nurmagomedov, after defeating the Irishman on his return to UFC, then called out Mayweather himself. The Russian has threatened to quit the UFC over the cancelation of his friend Zuybara Tukhugov's fight on the next UFC card, over his role in the post-fight melee. 50-0 vs. 27-0.

Nurmagomedov had called out Mayweather days after the McGregor fight, saying: "Hey, let's go, Floyd". But don't forget that it was Conor who had hit my another Brother FIRST, just check the video. if you decide to fire him, you should know that you'll lose me too. He defeated Conor McGregor on October 6 in a highly anticipated bout, then jumped into the crowd and fought with members of McGregor's team.

Rumors have been swirling about a match between Mayweather and current UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov for a little while now, but some recent boasting by Mayweather has helped ramp things up to a fever pitch. Let's go. Why not? I don't know any fighters that have made the money I have made. Because in the jungle, there's only one king.
