Floyd Mayweather Gives Khabib Ultimatum: Box Me, Or We Ain’t Fightin’

Floyd Mayweather is giving Khabib a simple choice -- we fight in the boxing ring ... or we ain't fightin' at all!

Floyd Mayweather is giving Khabib a simple choice — we fight in the boxing ring … or we ain’t fightin’ at all!

Of course, the two have been goin’ back and forth since Khabib beat Conor and called out Floyd … but Nurmagomedov’s team AND Dana White both say it’s gotta be MMA.

Now, Floyd’s firing back … telling TMZ Sports HE makes the rules — ’cause he makes the money and that makes him the guy who calls the shots … and mixed martial arts isn’t happening.

“They said it has to happen in the Octagon. And I said, ‘Just tell me where Khabib has made 9 figures before in the Octagon!'”

“If he hasn’t made 9 figures, he’s not the A-side. So, I’m the A-side.”

Remember, Floyd told us he’s likely to fight on New Year’s Eve in Tokyo … and if he and Khabib can’t strike a deal, that’s cool with him.

“It’s my way, my rules. I’m Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather!”

Floyd Mayweather says the Tokyo fight that was on and then off … is back on — and he’s telling TMZ Sports exactly how it’s gonna go down.

Remember, Floyd was supposed to fight 20-year-old kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa on New Year’s Eve … but recently backed out … saying promoters misled him about the scale and nature of the bout.

We talked to Floyd Wednesday night as he left Peter Marco jewelry in Beverly Hills … and he told us the fight is very much alive.

“We’re gonna make it happen.”

Question is … is it boxing, kickboxing or MMA?

“Rules? It’s gonna be a little boxing exhibition. No kicking,” Floyd told us … “I’m moving around with the guy for 9 minutes, and of course it’s gonna be the highest paid exhibition ever.”

Bottom line … the money’s just too good to pass up, as long as the fight goes down on Floyd’s terms.

“It’s a no-brainer. Just because I’m retired from boxing,” Mayweather says, “I still make appearances worldwide and make a ton of money.”
