Former five-division champion pugilist Floyd Mayweather Jr. has retired from the sport of boxing. That being said, it would appear that the undefeated striker has now begun negotiations with the UFC once again.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. began showing an interest in competing inside the octagon after earning a TKO victory over mixed martial arts megastar Conor McGregor inside the squared circle back in 2017. However, negotiations quickly fell flat.
Since then, “Money” Mayweather has shown an interest in facing undefeated UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov inside the ring. Nurmagomedov called out the 50-0 retired boxer after submitting Conor McGregor back at UFC 229 on Oct. 6, 2018.
As reported by RT.com, Floyd Mayweather Jr. is now allegedly negotiating with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) about a possible fight inside the octagon. This time around, negotiations are in favor of “Money” Mayweather earning over nine figures from the potential deal.
Speaking to RT.com, The Money Team Russia founder Timofey Kurgin opened up on the supposed negotiations.
“I know Floyd has been negotiating with the UFC. If they sign a contract I think it will have more than nine figures,” Kurgin said.
