Floyd Mayweather Reportedly “Begging” To Fight Khabib Nurmagomedov (VIDEO)
When it comes to the UFC — Khabib Nurmagomedov is probably the most feared men inside the Octagon, especially after he dismantled Conor McGregor and him tap out during their fight last year.
The next time we’ll see Khabib in the Octagon is September 7th when he takes on Dustin Poirier to defend his lightweight title.
When he’s done with that, he apparently has a big name boxer who wants to do battle with him and it could net him a substantial amount of money if it goes down.
Retired boxer Floyd Mayweather is not only interested in fighting Khabib, he’s basically “begging” for it to happen, and that’s according to Ali Abdelaziz.
Khabib’s manager spoke directly to TMZ and spoke about Mayweather’s insistence on a fight.
“Floyd Mayweather to this day keeps begging to fight Khabib, begging!” Abdelaziz explained. “I’m telling you, people reaching out to me every week about Floyd to fight Khabib but at the end of the day, we’re not interested … for now.”
It was back in 2017 when Mayweather fought Conor McGregor in the boxing ring, scoring a TKO in the 10th round and putting a ridiculous amount of money in both of their bank accounts.
Dana White has already gone on record to saying that if Floyd wants to fight one of his fighters in the future, he has to do so in an Octagon.
