Undefeated professional boxer Floyd Mayweather told TMZ that a boxing match against UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is going to happen.

Mayweather went on to say: "We're fighting. I'm my own boss. I can't say what's going on on Khabib's end, but on my end we can make it happen."

Mayweather (50-0) last competed in a mega-fight against UFC star Conor McGregor in August of last year. “Money” retired after defeating McGregor under boxing rules via TKO in round 10.

Nurmagomedov (27-0) is coming off of a fourth-round submission victory over Conor McGregor at UFC 229 earlier this month.
