  • Floyd Mayweather schedules bout in Rizin Fighting Federation

Mayweather had teased a move into mixed martial arts for some time, both as a rematch with McGregor and as a potential superfight against undefeated UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Mayweather calls this fight a "special bout" and that he's not really anxious about weight class.

The fight was announced early Monday at a news conference in Japan. The weight for the contest, however, has yet to be determined.

"I want to continue to build my relationship with Money Team Tokyo", Mayweather said.

"I want to continue coming over here and bringing other fighters over here so my company can continue to grow and RIZIN can continue to grow".

Floyd Mayweather has won world titles in five different weight classes and is 50-0 in an unparalleled boxing career but he could be set for a stunning detour into fight with modified rules after signing with Japanese promoters RIZIN Fighting Federation.

As for Nasukawa, the 20-year old fighter from Japan is now 27-0 as a professional kickboxer with 21 knockouts.

The shock announcement was made during a Rizin 14 press conference. Racking up four dominant mixed martial arts wins, defeating multiple men to be crowned the 2017 RIZIN KICK Tournament Champion, and most recently outpointing fellow superstar Kyoji Horiguchi in the biggest fight the Saitama Super Arena has ever seen.

Regarding the rules and weight, Rizin chairman Nobuyuki Sakakibara said "we still have some more work ahead of us".

"I would probably say that this is my biggest event in life", Nasukawa said.

However, his latest effort to remain relevant in the fighting world will take him away from the comfort of Las Vegas to Japan as he once again will take on a fighter from outside the world of boxing. "I will show that to you, so please stay tuned".
