• Khabib Nurmagomedov Rejected $100 Million Offer To Box Floyd Mayweather
Ali Abdelaziz, longtime manager of former UFC Fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov, claims that his client turned down a $100 Million offer to face Boxing Legend Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather in a Boxing Match.
Khabib retired on October 24, 2020 after going 29-0 with a win over Justin Gaethje at UFC 254.
Here’s what Abdelaziz said:
“Khabib got offered $100 million after he was retired to fight Floyd Mayweather.
You can ask Floyd, you can ask everybody, and Khabib said, ‘no, I’m retired, I told my mother I’m retired, I’m gonna keep my word to my mother. If my mother told me to fight again maybe I will but right now, she told me not to fight’.
He comes from a Muslim culture, we respect our mothers very dearly, we can’t go to heaven without our mother’s permission.”
