Floyd Mayweather is demanding $600 million (£465m) to fight UFC star Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Mayweather extended his record to 50-0 by beating Conor McGregor in August 2017.
Meanwhile, Khabib, who is the UFC’s current lightweight champion and is yet to be beaten in 28 MMA fights, has been tipped as the next man to challenge Mayweather.
Khabib has proposed to fight the 43-year-old for 11 rounds of boxing and one round with MMA rules.
But 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.’
