Mayweather has seemingly accepted Nurmagomedov's challenge but will only agree to the fight under his terms.
In the opinion of Canelo, Mayweather taking part in contests against UFC fighters like McGregor and Khabib are only hurting the sport.
Pacquiao claimed Thursday Mayweather's next fight will take place on New Year's Eve. He added, "I'm my own boss". I can't say what's going on at Khabib's end. "But, on my end, we can make it happen".
"When I face Khabib, I'm getting a nine-figure payday", said Mayweather.
Then "Pretty Boy" Floyd, who retired undefeated with a record of 50-0, gave McGregor an extremely backhanded complement by declaring "McQuitter was a way better fighter than Canelo's cheating ass". $100 million more, guaranteed...
A clip emerged of Nurmagomedov calling out the legendary boxer - who fought McGregor last August - and the 30-year-old quickly received a response. Only one king. Of course, I am the king because he can not drop McGregor but I drop him easily.
Nurmagomedov told Mayweather "in the jungle there is only one king" in requesting a bout.
Nurmagomedov and McGregor have temporarily been suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for their roles in the UFC 229 brawl, with a meeting set for October 24 to discuss further penalties.
"I see in an interview, he said when he hit Conor McGregor, he knocked Conor McGregor down. It could be somewhere upwards of $110m to $200m guaranteed".
UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier doesn't think fighting Floyd is a good idea for the Russian UFC star. "What is he doing, man", he told UFC writer Ariel Helwani.
"So, Khabib ... you got my leftovers".
Nurmagomedov and Mayweather both have recent victories over the Irish striker McGregor. That wouldn't happen against Khabib and Mayweather would probably embarrass him and light him up and pick him apart all night long but Khabib would probably go 12 rounds.
