Floyd Mayweather WILL fight Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa

The pair will wear Rizin's own 8oz. gloves and weigh no more than 147lbs for the exhibition, which is scheduled for New Year's Eve in Tokyo.

The fight website Boxing Scene reported on Friday that there will be no official victor or loser if the bout goes the distance, but Nasukawa could be planning for a knockout. I'm in the entertainment business.

"This is a great way for me to go out there and give people some entertainment", Mayweather said. I love to do this. I work hard to put myself in the position where I call all of the shots.

Although it is an exhibition fight, it will be the first time Mayweather has stepped into the ring to box at an event since defeating Conor McGregor in a pay-per-view bout in Las Vegas in August 2017.

He also stated that he will never fight under MMA rules. 'As an athlete, this is something that's a great honour and a challenging task.

Undefeated boxing legend Floyd Mayweather will indeed be competing on the annual New Year's Eve card for the RIZIN MMA promotion in Japan at RIZIN 14, and he will be taking on one of the world's biggest kickboxing sensations in Tenshin Nasukawa.

Oil producers join forces and cut production again
In order to put an end to crude oil prices, the organization of oil producing countries has agreed to cut the oil production. Following the announcement, Brent crude, the global standard, was up $2.79 a barrel, or 4.7 percent, at $62.85.

In the meantime, Mayweather will stay somewhat active with the unusual fight against the 20-year-old Nasukawa, who is 27-0 with 21 knockouts in kickboxing and 4-0 with two knockouts in MMA fighting mainly as a featherweight and junior featherweight.

It's been made clear by RIZIN that this isn't a fight or a boxing contest but rather an exhibition as the result of this bout will not be put on their records.

"I'm going to say this once again".

It's a glorified sparring session, a "small" three-round fight in Saitama, Japan, to show off their skills, and will not even be included on their professional records, according to the veteran American. "I do not want to fight a regular fight", he said on Instagram on Friday.

The retired Mayweather took Khan's comments in stride and said that his detractors should try to improve their own situations instead of worrying about what he is doing.

This week's announcement appears to cement the fact that Mayweather will indeed travel to Japan to face Nasukawa after he previously distanced himself from the event following his press conference appearance, saying he had been blindsided by the announcement.
