Floyd Mayweather Heavily Favored in Potential Bout With Khabib Nurmagomedov

  • Bookmakers have released odds for a potential fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Khabib Nurmagomedov.
  • Bovada has Mayweather as a 20-1 favorite to win a boxing match against 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. Bovada opened their lines with Mayweather as a -2000 favorite to win and Nurmagomedov at +900.

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 at Bovada to win that potential fight.
