Undefeated boxing champion, Floyd Mayweather, has accepted the challenge posed to him by UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.
The Russian who defeated Irish Conor McGregor in their blockbuster UFC bout two weeks ago to claim his 27th victory out 27 fights, called out Mayweather last week as his opponent he would love to face.
The unbeaten wrestler said: ‘Let’s go Floyd, we have to fight now, 51-0 vs 27-0, two guys who have never lost.
‘Because in the jungle there is only one king. Of course, I am the king because he cannot drop McGregor but I dropped him easily.’
The retired boxer who hung up his gloves after beating McGregor last August and clinched 51st victory out of 51 fights responded in typical fashion, saying: ‘Let’s make Las Vegas great again,’ and called on the major television networks to get their checkbooks out.
He wrote: CBS, Showtime and MGM Grand get the checkbook out! Go to @leonardellerbe ‘s page to view Khabib Nurmagomedov challenging me. LET’S MAKE LAS VEGAS GREAT AGAIN!
