Ali Abdelaziz, manager for UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, has suggested a long-rumored boxing match between his client and the undefeated Floyd Mayweather Jr was originally planned for January of next year.

However, speculation has renewed since Mayweather was photographed at a basketball match with UFC president Dana White and announced his two possible upcoming fights.
