One of the most hottest debates these days in the boxing universe is that is Khabib VS Floyd Mayweather going to happen? And if its going to happen when will the fight be scheduled. In this article we are going to discuss some of the highlights of the events that have happened in the past few days.
Will Khabib VS Floyd Mayweather Ever Happen?
On October 14th Khabib challenged Floyd Mayweather and Floyd reacted positively on twitter. Floyd Mayweather tweeted, ” CBS showtime and MGM Grand get the checkbook out! Go to @leonardellerbe ‘s page to view Khabib Nurmagomedov challenging me.” UFC’s president, Dana White denies the fight to happen. The reason is that Khabib is under contract and secondly no one from the Floyd’s Team has contacted him. While the two champions clearly showed their interest on social media still Dana White refuses the fight to happen. On the other hand, Khabib’s manager Ali Abdelaziz has said that if Floyd wants a boxing match, they are open to the idea.
Both the champions have never tasted defeat. Khabib brings 2.5 billion Muslims around the world, with some of the richest countries of the world and they are behind him. Floyd Mayweather also known as Floyd Money Mayweather, on the other hand is a megastar. If two forces clash, that going to be one hell of a fight.
On top of that both Khabib and Floyd side has not ruled out the fight. With other words, White would be crazy not to allow this fight. But at the end of the day, Khabib is a UFC fighter and comes under the contract of UFC which Khabib and his team totally respect.
We don’t exactly know what the contract between Khabib and UFC exactly says but a copy of contract with Eddy Alvarez is published on twitter and the labor law professor Zev Eigen from Northwestern University has read it carefully and made some massive allegations. Let’s take a look at one on them. “I think it’s potentially violation of the 13th amendment , The prohibition against slavery or involuntary servitude. You can’t force someone to work for you. I don’t know how, under contract law, that would enforceable. But I don’t think it’s been challenged.” And for this reason Dana White’s remarks that Khabib is under UFC contract makes us a little uncomfortable.
There is a little tension between Dana White and Khabib. The team member of Khabib who attacked Conor in the ring would be fired. Khabib threatens to leave UFC if that ever happens. Now White told TMZ sports that the conflict is resolved and they are all good. Floyd on the other hand isn’t worrying about the higher powers. He says ” Oh, we’re fighting, I’m my own boss.”
Right now it is very early to say that Khabib VS Floyd Mayweather is happening. For more new and updates keep checking out website.
