At this point its not easy to keep track of who Floyd Mayweather is fighting next, as he keeps making or accepting challenges amid his most recent retirement.
First at a music festival in Tokyo, Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao claimed that they’d be having a rematch for either December or in early 2019. Mayweather would slightly walk that back claiming that he’d have a “warm up” fight in Tokyo and then have face the Filipino senator in a rematch of their 2015 clash.
Now, Mayweather has accepted the challenge of current UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, who made the challenge in a video posted by Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe.
Following that accepted challenge, Mayweather told TMZ that after he beats Khabib in a boxing match, he’d have a rematch with Conor McGregor.
“After me and Khabib lock up, me and McGregor we gonna lock up again,” the undefeated boxer told TMZ.
“I’m ready to go out there and get the job done and entertain. ‘Cause me and McGregor Mayweather was real entertaining. I gave people what they wanted to see.”
Where this leaves Pacquiao if any of this happens, there is no way of knowing, but if this actually comes to pass, Mayweather will have a very busy 2019.
