Floyd Mayweather is demanding $600 million (£465m) to fight UFC star Khabib Nurmagomedov.

After beating Conor McGregor in August 2017, Mayweather extended his record to 50-0.

Khabib, meanwhile, is yet to be beaten in 28 MMA fights.

The UFC’s current lightweight champion has proposed to fight the 43-year-old for 11 rounds of boxing and one round with MMA rules.

However, Mayweather insists he will not get back in the ring unless he is paid a huge amount.

“It doesn’t make sense for me to fight just any ordinary fighter because I’m at the point right now where it’s about business, I’m a businessman,” Mayweather said at a Q&A in London on Wednesday evening.

“Why would I fight any ordinary fighter for $30m when I can fight a guy who has a whole country behind him for $300m?

 “The first fight [against McGregor] was entertaining. It’s all about entertaining. ‘We talked about the Conor McGregor fight, we talked about the Khabib fight. For myself, the number is $600m. If I’m going to go out there and risk it anything, it would have to be worth it.”
