The former UFC star gave his take on Mayweather vs. Paul during a press conference and promoted his Eagle FC 37 event.
Here is what he had to say:
“What’s there to say? They came out, made money. It’s purely business. There was no competitive aspect to it. Old Mayweather came out, they sparred and made money. What else is there to say? How do I feel about it? The guys decided to make money. Should I tell them to not make money and not to fight? They came out, put on a show, and earned what—tens of millions.”
A blog called “Hundred Bucks” had then asked Khabib whether if he would be considering to compete in an exhibition boxing match. “The Eagle” came up with a witty response. He said:
“I have no interest in doing something like that yet. If you give me a bit more than a ‘Hundred Bucks,’ I’ll think about it.”
