American boxer Floyd Mayweather expressed the opinion that the fight with the champion of the Absolute Fighting Championship (UFC) Habib Nurmagomedov would cause a stir and bring him a record fee. His words are brought by Boxingnews24.
“They constantly ask me why I speak about fights with rivals from mixed martial arts. But listen, Habib and I will make crazy money. Conor and I collected a large amount. I only box with those who bring big numbers to the table. I am ready to work and to amuse the public. My fight with Conor was a real treat. I give people what they want to see, ”the boxer said.
According to Mayweather, he will meet with Nurmagomedov and McGregor already in 2019.
“Many did not believe that my fight with McGregor would take place at all, but I am glad that it happened,” he added.
Mayweather, October 18, said he was ready to give revenge to McGregor. The boxer also agreed to meet with Nurmagomedov, who challenged the American social networks.
Mayweather and Nurmagomedov both defeated McGregor. The Dagestan fighter did it on October 7, forcing the Irishman to surrender in the fourth round in the UFC 229 tournament. Mayweather defeated the Irishman by TKO in a boxing match in August 2017. For that fight, the American received about 300 million dollars.
