Floyd Mayweather begins hyping potential Khabib Nurmagomedov fight with lofty expectations

Watch: Floyd Mayweather Confirms He Is Definitely Boxing Khabib

Floyd Mayweather says a money-spinning bout with UFC champion Khabib Nurmagomedov "is happening".

Floyd Mayweather Jr. points after he speaks to the media after his TKO of Conor McGregor in their super welterweight boxing match on August 26, 2017, at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Nurmagomedov beat McGregor in mixed martial arts in Las Vegas last weekend before calling out Mayweather, who says the fight must take place in the Nevada city.

"Who's the 'A-side?' He called me out so you have to come to my world", Mayweather said. "I can't say what's going on on Khabib's end, but on my end we can make it happen".

Floyd Mayweather responds to Khabib Nurmagomedov's challenge to a fight. Probably 100m United States dollars more, guaranteed. He said I didn't knock him down.

Nurmagomedov, fresh off his defeat of Conor McGregor and attack on McGregor's trainer, has been critical of the UFC's handling of the entire mess, and now seems like the flawless time for the Dagestani grappler to cash in on his fame, but will it actually happen?

"I don't know no other fighter that has done the numbers I have done".

In June, Volkswagen also agreed to pay a 1 billion euro ($1.2 billion) fine imposed by German prosecutors. The fines still leave Porsche facing an "administrative" diesel case among the group's companies.

As for McGregor, he looked surprisingly upbeat for being just days removed from getting his butt kicked by Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229.

Mayweather did not knock down McGregor during their fight past year, but appeared to be toying with his opponent in the early rounds.

Rumors have been swirling about a match between Mayweather and current UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov for a little while now, but some recent boasting by Mayweather has helped ramp things up to a fever pitch.

"I don't know. We haven't talked about that yet", White said about who Nurmagomedov will face next. "Let this guy enjoy his win and then we'll figure it all out".

Nurmagomedov told Mayweather "in the jungle there is only one king" in requesting a bout.

The fight made both fighters a fortune, with McGregor pocketing a reported $US100 million and Mayweather earning up to four times that amount.
