Khabib Nurmagomedov's Father and mentor is lobbying for a rematch with Conor McGregor but this time inside a boxing ring.

Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, told Russia media outlet IZ, it's a fight they are both interested in.

"As for the fight against Conor according to the rules of boxing, we are interested in such a fight," Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov said. 

"Khabib showed that he is able to win the best strikers of mixed martial arts. He talked about this before, but few believed it.

"However, after bright victories over Michael Johnson, Edson Barbosa and Conor people begin to believe.

"Khabib has all the skills to win by the rules of boxing. One of the key skills can be called endurance.

"I remember his five round fight with Iaquinta, in which Khabib showed his willingness to fight in absolutely any area, using everything from a light left jab to control on the ground."

Before any fight can be announced, whether boxing or MMA, both Nurmagomedov and McGregor must still face the Nevada State Athletic Commission on December 10 to find out their punishment for their roles in a melee at UFC 229.
