Floyd Mayweather Tenshin Nasukawa

Floyd Mayweather is planning on fighting Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa on December 31 in Saitama, north of Tokyo.

As yet it's not known what format the fight will take place, all that was said was it would be under "special rules".

Japan's young fighter Nasukawa has a 27-0 record in kickboxing and a 4-0 record in MMA - also he clearly has no hesitation against taking on Mayweather's experience.

Floyd Mayweather has made a surprising move, to say the least, as he will come out of retirement again to fight Japanese martial artist Tenshin Nasukawa. In Monday's press conference announcing the fight, Nasukawa remarked on Mayweather's physical stature.


It's an incredible end-of-career run for Mayweather, who is coming off a 10th-round stoppage of former UFC champion Conor McGregor in a 2017 boxing match that earned him his second nine-figure payday.

"Rizin has done a remarkable job with the fighters", said Mayweather, 41, who has abandoned his retirement plans for a second time.

Mayweather last competed a year ago against MMA superstar Conor McGregor, stopping McGregor in the 10th round under boxing rules. While Mayweather is undoubtedly the "A-side" when it comes to this pairing, if Nasukawa can tempt "Money" out of his comfort zone during the bout we could see one of the most shocking results in recent combat sports history. UFC boss Dana White said last week that a fight between the two would have to be in the UFC, which is something Mayweather would probably never agree to. "My opponent looks taller than I thought, I think because of the aura around him, but I think I could hit him".

"Conor and I talked for an hour last week", said White.


'Nobody has defeated my opponent in the past and I'd like to be the man who makes history. I can box a lot a bit.

"He's undefeated, so it's obvious he's been doing something right to be where he's at", Mayweather said. 'The victor of big dream fights that all people want to see'.

"As far as the weight class, we're not really anxious about that", he said.
