Floyd Mayweather Will Fight In RIZIN FF

Floyd Mayweather to face star kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa at RIZIN 14 in Japan on New Year's Eve

Mayweather is 50-0 in his boxing career but has never fought professionally under MMA rules.

At a press conference in Tokyo, Japan, it was announced that he will compete for the RIZIN Fighting Federation against undefeated kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in a fight dubbed as a "Super Challenge" bout.

"I'm not really anxious about the weight class or rules - it's about me displaying my skills against another skilful fighter".

The rules for the fight with Mayweather's surprise opponent - who has not lost in 27 contests - are yet to be determined.

Mayweather posted a teaser photo on his Instagram feed at the weekend, showing him wearing kickboxing gloves.

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

As for Nasukawa, the 20-year old fighter from Japan is now 27-0 as a professional kickboxer with 21 knockouts.

Mayweather, the highest earning boxer in history, can expect to bring in more than $100 million for the contest, which is nearly certain to be pay per view.

Rumour first arose Maywether would take on the young champ yesterday when RIZIN promoter Nobuyuki Sakakibara, while speaking to the media, hinted the idea there would be some sort of partnership extablished. "I can box a lot a bit", Mayweather told Reuters in an interview in Tokyo on Saturday. It's not out of the realm of possibility that the bout is fought under kickboxing rules.

In boxing, Mayweather, who has won world titles in five weigh classes from 130 pounds to 154 pounds, has been primarily a 147-pound welterweight for many years, though his fight with McGregor was a 154-pound bout. "My punch is here to change history". "I can do anything if I set my mind to it". "I love to entertain, I like for people to be entertained and who doesn't want to be entertained".

"We've been making some huge fights happen in the USA, but we look forward to taking the Mayweather Promotions banner and the TMT banner worldwide". I'm pretty sure that will get sorted out in the next couple weeks.
