Mayweather continues to hype boxing match with Nurmagomedov

Dana White Responds to Khabib Nurmagomedov Threatening to Leave the UFC

Rumours of a fight between Nurmagomedov and Mayweather started on Sunday. Mayweather's company CEO, Leonard Ellerbe, recently ran into Khabib in Russian Federation during the World Boxing Super Series and shared a video of the 27-0 UFC star asking Mayweather for a fight.

Boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather has responded the UFC champion Khabib Nurmagomedov's challenge with two words: "We're fighting".

Mayweather, 41, beat Conor McGregor in a boxing bout in August 2017.

Mayweather told his business partners to get their "chequebooks" out soon after Nurmagomedov's initial call-out and then insisted to TMZ the fight would happen. "I'm my own boss, so I can't say what's going on at Khabib's end, but at my end we can make it happen". But, on my end, we can make it happen.

"When I face Khabib, I'm getting a nine-figure payday", Mayweather said.

"Yes, more than the McGregor fight". I'm going to say somewhere between $110m and $200m guaranteed'.

Nurmagomedov called out Mayweather after defeating Conor McGregor in their controversial UFC fight in Las Vegas that ended in mayhem as Nurmagomedov jumped out of the Octagon to fight a member of the Irishman's entourage.

"When something can't be done and people doubt me or say it's impossible to do or you can never do it".

Khabib recently called out Mayweather in an Instagram video alongside Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions, saying there can be "only one king".

Nurmagomedov is eager to follow McGregor's lead and earn a career-high payday with an ambitious attempt to blemish Mayweather's spotless professional record. Of course, we know that Vegas is the fighting capital and after the fight, you have to conduct yourself like a true professional.

"Khabib better not try to box him".

Cormier warned Khabib that Mayweather will easily beat him in the squared circle.

When asked if the potential bout with the also undefeated Nurmagomedov would be a boxing or mixed martial arts contest, Mayweather was candid with his response. What is he doing, man?' Cormier told ESPN. OK, Khabib. You got my leftovers.
