Jr. To Fight In December RIZIN Event

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

A world champion at five different weights in boxing, Mayweather has never fought in mixed martial arts and it has yet to be decided what rules and format the fight, which will take place in Saitama, will follow. Mayweather apparently isn't too anxious about the weight class.

Nasukawa, who is unbeaten in 27 kickboxing fights and four MMA bouts, has won various titles in the flyweight (125lb) and bantamweight (135lb) divisions, which raises obvious questions about the contracted weight for the fight: Mayweather hasn't fought below the 147lb division since his 2005 fight with Arturo Gatti. "It's always been a goal of mine to go outside out of the United States and display my talent".

"I just want to entertain".

Promoters said the fight between Mayweather and Nasukawa will headline the Rizin 14 card to be staged on 31 December at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

"I'm pretty sure he's going to bring a lot of excitement".

The Rizin Fighting Federation was founded in 2015 by Japanese businessman Nobuyuki Sakakibara, who was previously the president of Pride Fighting Championships before it was sold to the then-owners of Ultimate Fighting Championship in 2007.


That victory improved his boxing record to a flawless 50-0 but the format or rules for his meeting with the baby-faced Nasukawa were not specified by the Japanese mixed martial arts promoters RIZIN.

Nasukawa, who is 4-0 in MMA and 27-0 in kickboxing, is listed at 5-foot-5, 125 pounds. I'm a little surprised myself.

"Nobody has defeated my opponent in the past and I'd like to be the man to make history. I can do anything if I set my mind to it".

"I have fought in the U.S. for all 50 of my fights".

ESPN reporter Ariel Helwani said it was unlikely to be an MMP bout. Maybe he'll face Nasukawa in a straight boxing match; that would seem to be the most likely outcome. "I would love to continue to work with Rizin because Rizin is an unbelievable company, and my company, 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".
