  • Watch: Floyd Mayweather Confirms He Is Definitely Boxing Khabib

He made millions by beating the world's best boxers while taking limited damage, hung up his gloves with his faculties intact and now just comes out of retirement to accept big-money bouts against fighters with no professional boxing experience.

During a recent interview with ESPN, White was asked who he would like to see UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov fight next after his victory over former champion Conor McGregor at UFC 229.

"He wants to continue hurting boxing by making fights that don't make sense. and not giving boxing the credibility it deserves", Alvarez told TMZ Sports.

"Oh absolutely we fighting", Mayweather said.

"I'm my own boss, so I can't say what's going on on Khabib's end".

Tickets to the event cost $10 and half of the proceeds will be donated to the Ali Forney Center and Planned Parenthood . Bracciale told Newsweek that those in attendance will be "basically Antifa witches".

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

Both Mayweather (50-0) and Nurmagomedov are (27-0) are unbeaten in their fighting careers, although the American said they would meet in the boxing ring.

You may roll your eyes at that statement, believing it to be completely out of the realm of possibility. McGregor lasted 10 rounds, but Mayweather ultimately maintained his ideal record. Mayweather emerged victorious from that "superfight" via TKO in the 10th round.

However, the $100 million-plus earnings will have done plenty to soften the blow. "It could be somewhere upwards of $110m to $200m guaranteed".

The Russian fighter jumped into the crowd immediately after the win to trade blows with members of McGregor's entourage while other members of Nurmagomedov's support leapt into the octagon at T-Mobile Arena to attack the beaten Irish fighter.

[But] in the jungle there is only one king. "I know it's a different sport, but Khabib not Conor down". You have to understand, Khabib carried this boy.

"Don't pay attention to it", White said.

Amid cynics" claims that it is just an attempt from Mayweather to keep himself relevant, "Money' has insisted that the bout is indeed going down.

"He's insane. He is going to start wrestling".
