Floyd Mayweather Announces Next Fight - And It's insane

Floyd Mayweather Announces Next Fight - And It's insane

Nasukawa is a 20-year-old, undefeated 27-0 kickboxer who most recently beat former UFC title contender Kyoji Horiguchi under kickboxing rules at RIZIN FF 13 on September 30. Mayweather is regarded as one of history's finest boxers, but since his fight with Conor McGregor it seems that he is considering branching out into the MMA world.

Mayweather, undefeated in 50 fights and a world champion in five boxing weight divisions, said the rules of the bout have yet to be clarified.

Although the fight was announced, several key details were not, including the specific rules of the bout, the number of rounds, the weight limit, how the fight broadcast would be distributed and what type of gloves they would wear.

"I want to continue coming over here and bringing other fighters over here so my company can continue to grow and RIZIN can continue to grow".

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

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 wanted to do something different".

In an interview on Saturday, the 41-year-old said he would be comfortable fighting under any format.

"I just want to entertain". 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.

"We still have some work to do", said Nobuyuki Sakakibara, the RIZIN chairman. I'll speak with my team and get with Rizin to come up with a great idea.

It may simply be that he is trying to maintain the crossover audience he created with McGregor and that the Rizin bout will simply be boxing in a cage, rather than a ring.

"I'm very happy that this is going to materialise". Nobody has defeated my opponent in the past and I'd like to be the man who makes history.

Ariel Helwani said tonight that the rules and weight still had to be worked out.
