Floyd Mayweather has followed up on his recent comments about a potential matchup against Khabib Nurmagomedov, saying he is more than willing to box him if they can get it done.
They said it would never happen between Mayweather and his fiftieth opponent Conor McGregor and yet, in August of 2017, the world tuned in to make ‘The Money Fight’ the second highest-selling pay-per-view of all-time.
After beating McGregor at UFC 229, Khabib called out the boxer Mayweather via the CEO of Mayweather Promotions Leonard Ellerbe’s Instagram.
Mayweather spoke to TMZ in a recent interview and made it clear that there would be no issues on his end in getting the fight done.
Whether Khabib could convince his bosses at the UFC to allow him to compete – would be another question entirely.
“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.”
“He called me out. So, he gotta come to my world.”
In a direct response to the fact that the Russian cited his second-round knockdown of Conor as a one-up of sorts over him, Mayweather was quick to make it clear that it mattered little.
“So, Khabib … you got my leftovers. Whoopy-do.”
