Floyd Mayweather responds to call-out from Khabib Nurmagomedov as possible super-fight looms

Watch: Floyd Mayweather Confirms He Is Definitely Boxing Khabib

Stop me if you've heard this one before: Floyd Mayweather Jr.is looking to go to battle with a top UFC fighter in the boxing ring.

Former world welterweight boxing champion Floyd Mayweather insisted Wednesday he plans to fight mixed martial arts star Khabib Nurmagomedov following the Russian's victory over Conor McGregor.

Mayweather, 41, says his purse for the fight could be double what he earned from the McGregor bout in August 2017 but declared the fight must take place in Las Vegas.

"We fighting", he told TMZ. He knocked out England's very own Ricky Hatton in devastating fashion but I don't see it. "I can't say what's going on on Khabib's end, but on 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", said Mayweather. It also has been reported that Mayweather would come out of retirement and fight in the UFC in a rematch with McGregor.

Of course, if Nurmagomedov chose to pull on the boxing gloves, then he would be following in the footsteps of McGregor who slugged it out with Mayweather a year ago.

"I already know what he [McGregor] is gonna do, you know, he's a quitter, you can't take that out of him, you can't train that out of him, you can't beat that out of him... you can beat that in to him, but you're gonna beat that out of him".

Nurmagomedov told Mayweather "in the jungle there is only one king" in requesting a bout.

As far as Nurmagomedov's next fight in UFC, White said the promotion has not given it serious thought. "So, he gotta come to my world", Floyd says. "It could be somewhere upwards of $110 (million) to $200 million guaranteed".

Nurmagomedov - who calls himself "the Mayweather of MMA" - is contracted by the UFC but has reportedly been headhunted by professional wrestling firm WWE. Khabib, you got my leftovers. Khabib brings 2.5 billion Muslims around the world, some of the richest countries in the world, and they're behind him.

"I'm ready to go out there and get the job done and entertain; me and McGregor was entertaining". I love Khabib man but he is going to get beat up by Floyd Mayweather.
