Mayweather To Fight Japanese Kickboxer Nasukawa

Floyd Mayweather Tenshin Nasukawa

Floyd Mayweather Jr's latest big career move will see him head to Japan on December 31 to take on featherweight kickboxing champion Tenshin Nasukawa.

At the moment Floyd, Mayweather 50 Boxing fights, won 50 wins, 27 of them by knockout.

Mayweather is widely regarded as the greatest boxer of his generation but seemingly retired after taking his flawless professional record to 50-0 by defeating UFC star Conor McGregor in August a year ago.

It is unknown whether the showdown in the city of Saitama will be under boxing, kickboxing or MMA rules, which Mayweather hopes will be resolved in "the next couple of weeks".

Japanese promoter the RIZIN Fighting Federation on Monday said rules and the weight class for the bout have not been set.




Mayweather had previously talked about potential blockbuster fights with UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor and a potential rematch with Manny Pacquiao, but absolutely no-one saw this announcement coming.

"I want to give the people what they want - blood, sweat and tears", Mayweather told a news conference in Tokyo after reportedly flying into Japan on his private jet.

"He's young and he's undefeated so it's obvious he's doing something right", Mayweather said of Nasukawa. I'm not really anxious about the rules. My thing is just coming over here to display my talent and put on a show for the people.

"As a professional I haven't had a chance to go outside the United States to display my skills and to display my talent for the world". "I wanted to display my skills outside the United States and be in a special fight". "I would probably say this is my biggest event in life so far and I'm very happy this is going to materialize". Then, McGregor was a UFC superstar and Mayweather was also a retired boxer.

"It was a surprise offer, but I accepted with hesitation", he said. "So please stay tuned".
