Floyd Mayweather On Khabib Nurmagomedov Fight: "We Can Make It Happen"

Watch: Floyd Mayweather Confirms He Is Definitely Boxing Khabib

UFC president Dana White recently came out to dismiss speculation on Khabib's future, despite the fact that 50 Cent offered him a $2m deal to fight for him at Bellator MMA.

Floyd Mayweather appears to be giving up on a Manny Pacquiao rematch as he says he's fighting Khabib Nurmagomedov - and he even called Conor McGregor his "leftovers".

The 41-year-old American is open to the idea of a fight and believes it would beat the £450m that was generated when he beat McGregor.

However, it most likely wouldn't be as big as Mayweather's bout against former UFC champion Conor McGregor.

We're told McGregor wanted to do something special to show his appreciation for the firefighters.so he plunked down a good chunk of change for 10 tickets to W.S. Game 1.

Mayweather has taken the bait and has been bantering back and for with Nurmagomedov via social media and in interviews with the likes of TMZ Sports. We fighting. I mean, I'm my own boss. "But, on my end, we can make it happen". But, on my end, we can make it happen.

"I swear to god, Khabib would go the distance with Mayweather".

"It will be more than the McGregor fight".

However, the $100 million-plus earnings will have done plenty to soften the blow.

Russia's Nurmagomedov, 30, defended his UFC lightweight crown with a submission victory over Ireland's Conor McGregor two weeks ago in the top-selling UFC fight ever, improving his record to 27-0. McGregor lasted 10 rounds, but Mayweather ultimately maintained his ideal record. Me and Khabib going to do insane numbers, me and McGregor are going to do insane numbers.

Nurmagomedov, after defeating the Irishman on his return to UFC, then called out Mayweather himself. "It could be somewhere upwards of $110m to $200m guaranteed". Khabib brings 2.5 billion Muslims around the world, some of the richest countries in the world, and they're behind him.

"Don't pay attention to it", White said. You have to understand, Khabib carried this boy. I love Khabib man but he is going to get beat up by Floyd Mayweather.
