Khabib Wants To Box Mayweather In Moscow

Khabib Nurmagomedov is ready to come into Floyd Mayweather’s world, but only if Mayweather will come to Moscow.

Nurmagomedov has been the focus of Mayweather since his UFC 229 win over Conor McGregor, with Mayweather claiming, “oh – we fighting. We can make it happen.

“Come into my world (boxing), make it happen.”

Nurmagomedov, who called out Mayweather in an Instagram post with Mayweather Promotions CEO, Leonard Ellerbe, would return to platform with a photo with boxing executive Umar Kremlev and the seeds of an offer to the undefeated boxer.
