Last year Floyd Mayweather defeated Conor McGregor in the biggest fight of the year. He stopped Conor McGregor in the tenth round via TKO and made a whopping $285 million and the fight sold 4.4 million PPV in North America. It was ranked as the second biggest fight in the history of combat sports right behind Mayweather vs Pacquiao.

Although the fight was a farce in the opinion of most hardcore sports fans, it was sold like a real grudge match and both Mayweather and McGregor exploited the fans and made them believe that McGregor had a chance against the greatest boxer of this era.

Now, Floyd Mayweather is back again with another farce fight, as he says he is willing to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov, who is coming off of an impressive fourth-round submission win over McGregor. He called out Mayweather last week in a boxing event in Russia in presence of CEO of Mayweather Promotions Leonard Ellerbe.

Speaking to TMZ, Mayweather said: “Oh — we fighting. I’m my own boss. So, I can’t say what’s going on, on Khabib’s end. But, on my end, we can make it happen.”

However, as with McGregor, Mayweather expects the fight to be in the ring rather than the Octagon.

“I’m Floyd Mayweather,” he said. “I’m the A-side, you call me out, you come into my world.

“I don’t know no other fighter that has done the numbers I have done. I don’t know any fighters that have made the money I have made.

“So, he called me out — come into my world, make it happen.

“I see in an interview, he said when he hit Conor McGregor, he knocked Conor McGregor down.

“He said I didn’t knock Conor McGregor down. OK, Khabib. You got my leftovers. Whoop-de-do.”

Mayweather thinks he will make even more money fighting the Russian than he did when he took on McGregor.

“When I face Khabib, I’m getting a nine-figure payday,” said Mayweather. “More than the McGregor fight. Probably $100 million more, guaranteed. It could be somewhere upwards of $110m to $200m, guaranteed.”
