    Anybody got any inside scoop? Mayweather claims it's set from his side in this interview late 2018, all that's left is for Khabib to give an official yes. Boxing.

    I would enjoy it. Not every day you see a grappler try out boxing.

    I hope not. Khabib has zero chance against Mayweather in boxing.

    Aren't you curious to see how well he would do? Nobody thinks he would win but it would still be interesting.

    Khabib will lose 100% so I don't see why he would take this fight. Imagine if Khabib sleeps Floyd though haha.

    Mayweather gonna get robbed carrying around $30K and flashing it out in open.

    Ya his body guards are likely strapped but getting in a shoot out with a street hood is not smart for Mayweather's survival. Better to just hand over the $30K.

    No interest to see the fight made.

    But if it is made I would watch anyway.

    I don't know why UFC fighters don't think Mayweather hits hard. Those who actually fought him said he did...

    No, it wouldn't be interesting.

    Unless you find complete mismatches interesting, that is.

    I'd watch it, but there's much better fights out there for Khabib.

    Pointless and fucking dumb.MMA fighters need to stop trying to box thinking they can beat boxing greats.just makes MMA look bad.I know a lot has to do with how much they can make but fuck that.

    i don't think Khabib would be under any illusions he would win. It would be all about the once in a lifetime payday, if it sells. Conor may have believed he could win as he had this 'destiny' belief in his head at the time.

    Not sure it would sell like Conor/Mayweather would though and Mayweather is saying he would up his guaranteed purse by $100MM which means if it does not do huge numbers Khabib could walk away with little or nothing.


    Cardio does not matter if you have near zero boxing skills like Khabib.

    Conor shocked the world (outside haters) by actually putting up a decent performance and making Mayweather earn it. Khabib would be embarrassed badly.

    this guy had cardio for days but would not be able to touch Mayweather.
