UFC legend Khabib Nurmagomedov has called out Floyd Mayweather for a future fight.
Khabib, who is now retired from fighting in the UFC, is widely regarded as one of the finest MMA fighters ever to walk the Earth.
He could now be keen to give another sport a go, having called out Floyd Mayweather for a fight on camera. The video has subsequently circulated on social media.

We assume that Khabib is open to the idea of boxing Mayweather, because there’s little to no chance of the American accepting to step into the octagon.
Mayweather has been staging multiple exhibitions in recent years. He could be intrigued by the PPV potential of a fight with Khabib.
We’d have to deem it seriously unlikely to ever come to fruition, though, which is probably for the best for the legacy of both fighters…
