Update Mayweather Says NYE Fight in Tokyo is Back on Going to Work it Out

Boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather Jr said on november 5, 2018 he will come out of retirement to fight Japanese kickboxer half his age Tenshin Nasukawa, on New Year's Eve in Saitama. Mayweather stated that talks are still ongoing and sounded confident that the two sides will eventually work something out. Ultimately, I was asked to participate in a 9 minute exhibition of 3 rounds with an opponent selected by the "Rizen Fighting Federation".

A few days later, Mayweather announced that the fight won't happen because it was supposed to be a demonstration, not an official meeting. "It's a no brainer".

The legendary American said he never agreed to fight Nasukawa and understood that he would have an exhibition bout against an unnamed Rizin fighter for "a very large fee".

Mayweather's decision to pursue a fight with Nasukawa was seen by many to be a money-grab, a notion the 41-year-old has dismissed. Nasukawa recently defeated Rizin Bantamweight Grand-Prix victor and former UFC flyweight title challenger Kyoji Horiguchi in a wild kickboxing match. "Mayweather Promotions/Rizin. We're going to make it happen".

LM5 is Little Mix's first to be released since splitting with Simon Cowell's record label earlier this month. I love you all so much and just need yous to know that! "Thank you for sharing and helping others love you".

We never expected Mayweather to agree to a rule-set which would allow Nasukawa to use kicks, nor did we anticipate a mixed martial arts debut from the 50-0 boxing legend. "I still make appearances worldwide and make a ton of money". "Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Oprah, they still go out there and do different things". And I said, "Just tell me where Khabib has made nine figures before in the Octagon!"

Rizin FF 14 will take place at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan on December 31, 2018.

He also revealed that he got paid 7 figures just to promote the RIZIN 14 event, and the exhibition which is basically just light sparring to demonstrate or simulate a real fight, will be the highest paid exhibition in history.

Shortly after his dramatic victory over Conor McGregor in October, Khabib called out Mayweather on Instagram.
