Despite the fact that he keeps announcing his retirement from boxing, and the fact that he is now 41 years old, "Pretty Boy" Floyd "Money" Mayweather is still the biggest draw in the sport and is still the name that every fighter in boxing is talking about.
However, it is not just boxing where Mayweather is such a wanted man, since he has also become a target for the big names in the UFC.
Floyd has already cruised to an easy 10-round win over UFC star Conor McGregor. and now Khabib Nurmagomedov wants to have a shot at TBE.
With that said, though, Khabib has not been doing his chances any favours by thinking that he is able to make demands to Mayweather, which is utterly ridiculous.
Floyd is the big-name draw, and if a fighter wants to get him out of retirement, then it is always going to be on his terms.
The Russian MMA star insisted: "If we make a bilateral agreement with Floyd Mayweather, the fans will be pleased.
"The first match in the ring and the second in the cage, then this would be real. I want to test myself in boxing once, that's fair."
There is no way in a million years that Mayweather is ever going to agree to get into the cage with anyone.
He is too old to start learning all of the other elements needed to fight in the UFC, and it would be too risky and too dangerous for him to take on one of the best MMA fighters in the world.
When it comes to the boxing side of things, the American superstar might have been out of action for over a year and is the wrong side of 40, but he would still be too good for Khabib and it would be just as boring and unentertaining as when he fought McGregor.
The chances of us ever seeing a fight between Floyd Mayweather and Khabib Nurmagomedov were already slim, but with these demands from the Russian, there is no chance that this fight is going to happen at all.
