Welp. With undefeated boxing elite Floyd Mayweather revealing that he’s coming out of retirement in the year 2020, there is now a betting line for a possible sweet science scrap with UFC lightweight champ, Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Despite his age of 42, Mayweather is still one of the greatest boxing technicians out there. As for Khabib, well, his bread and butter has always been his dominating ground game, and not his standup. Considering these factors, it’s not a big shocker to see SportsBetting.ag having Mayweather open up as a monumental betting favorite over the mixed martial artist.
Floyd can be acquired for an astounding moneyline of -1500, with Nurmagomedov on the table at a beefy underdog value of +800. This bout must take place in 2020 for action to be valid.
Since retiring from the the sport in which he dominated for so long, Mayweather has returned to box likes of Conor McGregor, and put on an exhibition against Japanese kickboxing sensation, Tenshin Nasukawa — stopping both inside the distance. Dominating the sport of MMA, the undefeated Nurmagomedov is coming off of a third round submission victory over Dustin Poirier at UFC 244. Oddly enough, they both finished McGregor two fights ago.
