Fresh off his triumph over Conor Mcgregor, lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedev is setting up Floyd Money Mayweather to be his next opponent. Leonard Ellebre, CEO of Mayweather’s company, came across Nurmagomedev during the World Boxing Super Series in Russia. In the video below, Nurmagomedev proposes that he and Mayweather set up a boxing match in the near future.
“Let’s go Floyd, we have to fight now. 50-0 versus 27-0, two guys that never like lose. Let’s go, why not? Because in the jungle there is only one king, only one king. Of course I am the king. He can drop to McGregor but I drop him easily. That’s right, let’s go.”
Mayweather responded by making an Instagram post, showing interest in stepping in the ring again after his retirement. Then, in a new interview with TMZ, Mayweather said, “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.”
It looks like we might have a legendary fight on our hands.
