Floyd Mayweather takes aim at Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa

At RIZIN 14 on New Year's Eve we won't be seeing TMZ videos of Floyd Mayweather Jr running the streets of Las Vegas at 3 AM.

Floyd Mayweather is planning on fighting Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa on December 31 in Saitama, north of Tokyo. The match has been called a "Super Challenge", and many details (including the rules, weight limit, number of rounds, and what kind of gloves the fighters will wear) are now unknown.

The 41-year-old unbeaten American, who captured world titles in five different weight divisions and was considered the best pound-for-pound boxer in the sport, out-boxed Irish mixed martial arts fighter Conor McGregor in his last fight in August 2017.

Note that Nasukawa is a fighter MMA and kickboxing, however, what rules will the fight with Mayweather, is not specified.

The American defeated Conor McGregor in the ring past year and now seemingly wants to face down his UFC rival, yet Dana White insists any meeting between Mayweather and Nurmagomedov would have to be an MMA contest in the octagon.

"I want to give the people what they want - blood, sweat and tears", Mayweather told a news conference in Tokyo after reportedly flying into Japan on his private jet.




"I think he's young, very strong and very fast and he undefeated so it's obvious he's doing something right", Mayweather said. "You guys know about boxing, you guys know about fighting".

I am not really sure what to expect, what about you? "I wanted to display my skills outside the United States and be in a special fight".

"I would probably say that this is my biggest event in life, so far", Nasukawa said, via a Japanese translator.

Nasukawa would also offer his thoughts on the contest and was confident in his abilities to defeat Mayweather.

"It was a surprise offer, but I accepted with hesitation", he said. Nobody has defeated my opponent in the past and I'd like to be the man who makes history. "So please stay tuned".
