Floyd Mayweather has announced he will fight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa on New Year's Eve in Japan. "My opponent looks taller than I thought, I think because of the aura around him, but I think I could hit him", Nasukawa said.
'I don't even want to imagine what kind of fighter he will turn out to be in five years, ' said Yuaku Nakamura, who was knocked out in the second round of their kickboxing bout in May after being caught with a crushing left hook.
"I spoke with my team and with RIZIN and we put it together".
"We still have more work cut out for us, but we think it will be a great fight everyone will be excited to see", Sakakibara said through a translator. "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". But Nasukawa fights at a lighter weight than Mayweather was at when he turned pro in 1996. He's 27-0 in kickboxing, 4-0 in MMA on the whole and also boasts a 99-5 amateur kickboxing record before he turned professional aged 18. Mayweather said in the news conference that those details are still being hammered out.

Mayweather earned a nine-figure sum when he convincingly defeated McGregor in their hugely anticipated boxing showdown in Las Vegas in August 2017, and has talked about another return from retirement in recent weeks. "I look forward to taking this worldwide".
The 20-year-old Nasukawa has a formidable fighting record and already a reputation as one of the fiercest kickboxers in the world. And I will show that to you. My punch can change history.
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".

"As far as the weight class, we're not really anxious about that", he said. "I love to entertain, I like for people to be entertained and who doesn't want to be entertained".
"This particular bout is a special bout".
