That's a lot of money if true, as Mayweather and McGregor made out with a small fortune from their boxing match in Las Vegas.
Mayweather told his business partners to get their "chequebooks" out soon after Nurmagomedov's initial call-out and then insisted to TMZ the fight would happen. We fighting. I mean, I'm my own boss. Nurmagomedov's manager has been coy about the bout, but is certainly not shutting it down, saying that he thinks the Dagestani fighter would at least go the distance with Mayweather, something that McGregor was unable to do.
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. "So, he gotta come to my world", Mayweather said.
In an interview with ESPN.com, White said he wants to see former interim champ Tony Ferguson - not McGregor - get the next shot at the title. Of course, I am the king because he can not drop McGregor but I drop him easily.
It has always been rumoured that Mayweather would fight Manny Pacquiao in a rematch. More than the McGregor fight.
"At the end of the day, Khabib is a UFC fighter". "Just because all of a sudden he wants to come out and fight this guy - he doesn't get to do that". [But] in the jungle there is only one king.
It is now a genuine possibility that Khabib will follow McGregor in stepping into the boxing world to take on Mayweather.
We're told McGregor wanted to do something special to show his appreciation for the firefighters.so he plunked down a good chunk of change for 10 tickets to W.S. Game 1. "But, on my end, we can make it happen". It's more than the McGregor fight - probably 100 million dollars more. "It could be somewhere upwards of $110 (million) to $200 million guaranteed". He's not a boxer, and one-punch knockout power isn't a direct translation from the UFC to a boxing ring.
