Russian UFC lightweight king Khabib Nurmagomedov has once again added fuel to rumors of a possible boxing match against Floyd Mayweather, said to be taking place at Moscow’s biggest arena, Luzhniki, with capacity of over 80.000.
The 27-0 fighter posted a picture of himself together with the Russia’s boxing boss Umar Kremlev.
“The Russian Boxing Federation came up with an offer. Summer. Luzhniki etc,” Nurmagomedov captioned the photo in Russian. How do you think, (my) friends, should we take this challenge?” he added along with the hashtags #boxing and #mma.
This is at least the second meeting of the two.
The last time they were caught by the cameras together in October. Back then, after the encounter Khabib promised to gather up to 100,000 fans at Luzhniki Stadium and to set world’s new pay-per-view record.
Mayweather versus Khabib would be a huge draw.
Of course everyone wants to see Khabib in the Octagon, but maybe he can put an end to Floyd Mayweather’s unbeaten streak.
You never know.
