Mayweather continues to hype boxing match with Nurmagomedov

Mayweather has seemingly accepted Nurmagomedov's challenge but will only agree to the fight under his terms.

As for his potential fight with Mayweather, however, White wants us to focus on different possibilities for Khabib. He's ready to go, so now he's leaving it up to Nurmagomedov's side to make good on his call out. "The Mayweather team has not approached us at all".

"Oh, we fighting. I'm my own boss".

"We never give up on our brothers in Russian Federation and I will go to the end for my brother".

You may roll your eyes at that statement, believing it to be completely out of the realm of possibility.

McGregor made a brief foray into boxing a year ago to take on Mayweather, who moved to 50-0 in the paid ranks by stopping the Irishman in the 10th round of their highly lucrative showdown. Mayweather emerged victorious from that "superfight" via TKO in the 10th round.

ITV's highlights broadcast from the royal wedding , which aired at 8.30pm, was watched by an average of 3.4 million viewers. Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank took their celebrations up a notch by planning another celebration for the day after.

Mayweather says a fight against undefeated lightweight UFC champion Khabib Nurmagomedov (27-0) is "happening", according to Brett Okamoto of ESPN.

"When I face Khabib, I'm getting a nine-figure payday", said Mayweather. Probably $100 million more, guaranteed. "I'm gonna say somewhere between $110-$200 million guaranteed".

"Conor was about to get attacked.I leaped over and saw the door open and I wanted to get in there and protect my countryman".

Former multi-weight champion Mayweather was unable to knock McGregor down, which Nurmagomedov did over the course of the October 6 bout at the T-Mobile Arena before forcing his bitter rival to tap out.

Naturally, Abdelaziz also had plenty to say about Khabib's recent UFC rival Conor McGregor. [But] in the jungle there is only one king.

Nurmagomedov - who calls himself "the Mayweather of MMA" - is contracted by the UFC but has reportedly been headhunted by professional wrestling firm WWE. Khabib boxes well, he showed that against McGregor, where he was one step ahead. You are pretty busy with that, I hope it won't get stuck in your throat. "He's going to get beat so bad he is going to start wrestling".
