Floyd Mayweather Continues To Spark Interest In Fighting Khabib Nurmagomedov
Floyd Mayweather has no fear of entering into the boxing ring with UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.
After all, the 41-year-old American boxer stepped into a match with Conor McGregor in 2017, emerged victorious in the bout and extended his undefeated record to 50 wins.
Khabib secured a win over McGregor in the fourth round to retain his UFC Lightweight Championship at UFC 229 earlier this month, but the Eagle would have to follow in the footsteps of the Irishman and enter Mayweather's world.
Now, Floyd has taken to Instagram to share a clip from a friend of The Money Team, 'ShabazzTheOG,' about why the Russian fighter should face the boxer next.
Check it out below.
UFC president Dana White recently came out to dismiss speculation on Khabib's future, despite the fact that 50 Cent offered him a $2m deal to fight for him at Bellator MMA.
Nurmagomedov's future at UFC remains uncertain after he threatened to leave the organisation if they chose to punish Zubaira Tukhugov for punching McGregor.
"If you decide to fire [Zubaira], you should know that you'll lose me, too," he said.
"We never give up on our brothers in Russia and I will go to the end for my brother.
"If you still decide to fire him, don't forget to send me my broken contract, otherwise I'll break it myself.
"And one more thing: you can keep my money that you are withholding. You are pretty busy with that, I hope it won't get stuck in your throat. We have defended our honour and this is the most important thing. We intend to go to the end."
