Looks like Floyd wants to take on another MMA fighter.
Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor took the fighting world by storm when they went in the ring back in 2017. McGregor was completely out of his element. An MMA fighter going into a boxing ring with arguably the best boxer of all time seemed like an insane thing to do. Considering Mayweather won easily, we were all proved right. Despite all this, it seems as though Mayweather wants his shot at another prized MMA fighter.
In an interview with TMZ, Khabib Nurmagomegov's manager, Ali Abdelaziz, said Floyd is "begging" for a fight.
"Me and him have been texting each other for the last month. He's very much begging for the fight," Abdelaziz said. This comes after the two called Mayweather out after Khabib defeated McGregor in a fight in October.
For Khabib's manager, the only issue holding the fight back right now is money. "At the end of the day, if he want it, the fight is here. I like this fight. But, he has to come a little bit better. He knows what I'm talking about," he explained.
If the fight does happen, it will be interesting to see if Khabib can hang with Mayweather in the boxing ring. McGregor lasted 10 rounds against Floyd last year, so that's the bar Khabib will be looking to beat.
