  • Bookmakers have released odds for a potential fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Floyd Mayweather Jr. is looking to go to battle with a top UFC fighter in the boxing ring. This time it’s Khabib Nurmagomedov who has Mayweather’s attention.

Mayweather quickly responded to the challenge on Twitter, which caused bookmakers to set lines for a potential boxing match.

Nurmagomedov is having a pretty busy month already. He defeated Conor McGregor on Oct. 6 in a highly anticipated bout, then jumped into the crowd and fought with members of McGregor’s team. He was suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission shortly afterwards.

Mayweather also challenged Manny Pacquiao in September to a rematch of their record breaking 2015 fight. He is a -260 favorite to win that potential fight.
