UFC megastar Conor McGregor made his professional boxing debut back in 2017 against undefeated pugilist legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. “Money” Mayweather ultimately earned a TKO victory over the Ireland native within the tenth round.
In his octagon return, “Notorious” just faced off against undefeated UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229. This time around, Nurmagomedov earned a submission victory over the former two-division UFC champion within the fourth round.
Nurmagomedov has since called out Floyd Mayweather Jr. to a boxing match of his own. Speaking to boxingscene.com, the Dagestan native’s coach and father Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov has since revealed that he believes the UFC champion will have a better shot at defeating Floyd Mayweather Jr. than Conor McGregor did.
“Based on the rules of boxing, Khabib will have chances [to win], he will certainly have more chances than McGregor. Khabib will get in real close and clinch.”
