Boxing icon Floyd Mayweather Jr. is ready to see UFC superstar Khabib Nurmagomedov face-to-face in the ring. The sports mogul has announced his intention to put the gloves on and face-off against the MMA fighter.
In a new interview, Mayweather Jr. said he’s down to take on Khabib a year after defeating UFC fighter Conor McGregor in a boxing match.
“What I exactly said is CBS, Showtime, MGM Grand, get that check book ready because you already know I’m Floyd Money Mayweather. I’m in the check-cashing business. I’m about that money. We fighting. I mean, 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. Then I saw on IG and social media he put, basically he’ll fight but he doesn’t want to fight in Vegas. Of course we know Vegas is the fighting capitol and after the fight you have to conduct yourself as a professional. Not just inside the ring but outside the ring. You must conduct yourself as a professional and it was a big melee. I haven’t had a chance to see it but from what I heard it was a crazy melee [after UFC 229].
