Floyd Mayweather Demands N216 Billion, To Fight Conor McGregor And Khabib Nurmagomedov, On The Same Night

$600 million (N216 billion at $1 to N360 market exchange rate), is the incredible price tag the undefeated Floyd Mayweather has put on the table, to fight Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Floyd revealed the mind-boggling sum of money required for him to fight both men, as the undefeated boxing star eyes up a return to combat sport.

Mayweather called time on his boxing career, in 2017, but has since sparked rumours of fights with the two UFC stars, having been spotted with UFC Chief, Dana White, in 2019.

There has been speculation that the 43-year-old, who raked in $300 million after fighting McGregor, almost three years ago, may fight the pair on the same night, in what would be a ‘one fee, both fights’ deal for punters. 

The American boxing star, speaking at a DKM Promotion’s event, at York Hall, said: “We (Mayweather and White) talked about the Conor McGregor fight, we talked about the Khabib fight. 

“For myself, the number is $600 million. If I am going to go out there and risk it, it would have to be worth it.”

Mayweather also revealed that McGregor and Khabib are options, due to the swathes of support the pair receive from their home countries, with McGregor heavily supported in Ireland, while Khabib is adored in Dagestan.

He added: “In the boxing world, as of right now, it does not make sense for me to fight any ordinary fighter. I am a businessman. The Conor McGregor fight made sense. If it makes money, it makes sense.

“I do not fight fighters, or compete against competitors, that only have cities behind them. If I am going to fight you, you have to have a whole country behind you.

“The first fight was entertaining. It as an entertainment business.”

UFC supremo, White, has said that discussions with Mayweather are ongoing. 

“We will see what happens”, he said, adding that: “The discussions are always ongoing. They never stop.”
