Ali Abdel-Aziz, manager of UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, said that his ward was offered a huge amount for a boxing match with legendary ex-champion Floyd Mayweather. According to Abdel-Aziz, it was about $ 100 million. According to Khabib’s manager, the president of the promotion, Dana White, was ready to support this fight, but the Russian fighter refused to fight according to the rules of boxing.
“Look, we were offered $ 100 million for a fight with Floyd Mayweather. Dana White was in action, everyone was in action. But, as you know, Khabib is an MMA fighter. If Floyd wanted to fight according to the rules of MMA and get his ass – not a problem, “Ali Abdel-Aziz told TMZ.
We will remind, Abdel-Aziz also expressed doubt that Dana White will be able to persuade Nurmagomedov for revenge with Conor McGregor.
