Mayweather was recently called out by reigning UFC lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov on the heels of the UFC champ's title-retaining victory over Conor McGregor at UFC 229, and Mayweather seems more than prepared to step into the boxing ring to face the undefeated Russian UFC champion.
When asked whether the fight would be a boxing or mixed martial arts contest, Mayweather answered directly. "Of course we know, Vegas is the fighting capital, and after the fight you have to conduct yourself like a true professional, not just in the in the ring, but outside the ring also... it was a big melee [with McGregor's team], I haven't had a chance to see it, but from what I heard it was a insane melee".
"I'm Floyd Mayweather. I'm the A-side, you call me out you come into my world". We never give up on our brothers in Russian Federation and I will go to the end for my Brother.
"When I face Khabib, I'm getting a nine-figure payday", said Mayweather.
"Of course we know Vegas is the fighting capital, and after the fight you have to conduct yourself like a true professional", said Mayweather.
La lección que se hizo viral
El mensaje que resalta la importancia de que los niños se diviertan y los padres se mantengan al margen tuvo miles de retuits. El mensaje de deportividad que quiso dar este usuario de Twitter traspasó las fronteras y se ha hizo super viral .
Mayweather hasn't fought since and has been spending his time travelling the world. "Probably a hundred million dollars more, guaranteed". He won the fight via fourth-round submission, and then exited the Octagon to confront McGregor's corner. It also has been reported that Mayweather would come out of retirement and fight in the UFC in a rematch with McGregor. Then I saw on IG and social media he put, basically he'll fight but he doesn't want to fight in Vegas.
Nurmagomedov (27-0) defended his lightweight championship against McGregor at UFC 229 on October 6 in Las Vegas. In the video, Nurmagomedov laughs and calls out Mayweather.
Floyd Mayweather has locked in on his next opponent. [But] in the jungle there is only one king.
According to Mayweather, 41, a fight against Nurmagomedov would produce a higher paycheck than the one he received to box McGregor a year ago. "It could be somewhere upwards of $110m to $200m guaranteed".
Former multi-weight champion Mayweather was unable to knock McGregor down, which Nurmagomedov did over the course of the 6 October bout at the T-Mobile Arena before forcing his bitter rival to tap out.
