“Don’t Discredit Michael Bisping” – Khabib Nurmagomedov’s Manager Trolled Amidst Floyd Mayweather Insinuation

Published 05/10/2022, 9:15 AM EDT

It is not an easy task to go up in weight class and expect to dominate the weight class. Fighters have to give up size, weight, and power advantage & face serious adversity. Not many can make such jumps and continue to maintain a flawless record, and hence, it is why Ali Abdelaziz, manager of Khabib Nurmagomedov, backs Floyd Mayweather.

He took to Twitter to share a special post dedicated to the unbeaten professional boxer. Much like Nurmagomedov in MMA, even Mayweather has never tasted defeat in his own sport. With 20+ years in the fight game and over 50 victories, he is still sitting at the top as arguably the greatest boxer to ever step into the ring.

Abdelaziz also stated that Mayweather is indeed ‘count for pound king’ best boxer in the world. He also highlighted that Mayweather wasn’t just a multi-weight class champion, but also decimated 16 consecutive world champions in a row.

This post seems like a deliberate dig at Canelo Alvarez, who suffered his career’s second professional loss this past weekend. The Mexican boxer went up yet another weight class to challenge Dmitry Bivol for the light-heavyweight crown. But unfortunately, it didn’t go as he intended as the 31-year-old boxer got dominated for all 12 rounds.

 MMA Fans react to bold claims made by Khabib Nurmagomedov’s manager

It is indeed factually correct that Mayweather hasn’t tasted defeat, unlike his peers. With Alvarez picking yet another loss, this has cemented Mayweather as the undisputed GOAT (Greatest of all times) of boxing.

Usually, the term that is used to denote the fighter in the world follows, pound-for-pound, but Abdelaziz added a strange twist to this phrase.

More fans jumped to the thread backing Floyd Mayweather’s claim of being the best boxer to ever grace the squared circle. He might not be considered the most exciting fighter, but his legacy is simply unmatched.

This fan corrected Abdelaziz’s claim, as at the time half the listed fighters had not picked up world titles at that time. These boxers went on to become world champions later on, but they weren’t anywhere close to it when they fought Mayweather.

It is no doubt that Abdelaziz is still hoping to aid his client, UFC champion, Kamaru Usman to book a fight against Canelo Alvarez. This latest post fits right into that narrative as the welterweight kingpin continues his campaign to face the boxer.

Boxing fans have another name in mind that doesn’t follow the popular opinion.

Somehow, Michael Bisping has been mentioned in the thread without ever turning pro in boxing. ‘The Count’ and his fan following seem to live on despite being removed from active competition for more than 5 years.
