Floyd Mayweather Jr. Will Fight Undefeated Kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa In Japan

Floyd Mayweather Jr. Will Fight Undefeated Kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa In Japan

Instead he will face the 20-year-old Nasukawa, an undefeated kickboxer at 27-0.

"As far as the weight class, we're not really anxious about that. It's always been a goal of mine to go outside out of the U.S. and display my talent". As a professional I haven't had a chance to go outside the United States to display my skills and to display my talent for the world'. "I look forward to giving you guys entertainment come December 31, but my relationship with Rizin doesn't just stop here".

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.

"I'm going to bring a lot of excitement", Mayweather said at the press conference where the fight was announced. "I think that when it comes to experience, I have more experience on my side". 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.

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 United States, but we look forward to taking the Mayweather Promotions banner and the TMT banner worldwide.

"When I was offered this, I accepted right away without any delay whatsoever", he said through a translator.

Apple chief Cook sees short-term impact from weak Re, import duties
On Tuesday, Mr Cook unveiled a new iPad Pro and MacBook Air as Apple completed a refresh of its major product lines for the year. Apple's cautious forecast could accelerate investor fears that have in turn erased stock market gains for much of the year.

Mayweather, a five-division boxing champion who turns 42 in June, has not fought since a 10th-round knockout of UFC star Conor McGregor under boxing rules in August 2017. I'm a little surprised myself.

"It's the biggest moment in my life and I want to be the man who changes history". "Boxing rules I wouldn't mind".

It was not clear whether it will be a boxing match, an MMA fight or some other combat sport.

"It's always been a goal of mine to go outside the USA and go into another arena and display talent as a professional because I did it as an amateur".

Mayweather was confident they would reach an agreement that would suit both fighters.

Information from ESPN's Ariel Helwani was used in this report.
