Amazing news from the world of martial arts: Floyd Mayweather has signed a contract to fight New Year's Eve in Japan. And that will probably be an MMA fight.
His opponent this time is not like Conor McGregor or Khabib Nurmagomedov, but the 20-year-old kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa.
Nasukawa has thirty fighting for his name and has so far proved unbeaten, but during the RIZINA 14 41-year-old Mayweather will try it anyway. The record that Nasukawa has on his name is 27-0.
Mayweather has pointed out that he is still thinking about whether to be boxing, kick boxing or MMA match. This will be decided in the coming weeks. There was also no agreement on the weight they must have.
Mayweather held a press conference in Japan on Sunday night about the fight. How much money he gets for the game, he has not (yet) said. The fight will take place in Saitama Super Arena; the third largest stadium (indoor) in the world with 36,500 seats.
We hope MMA will fight for them because Mayweather had some MMA training in the past. UFC champion Tyron Woodley offered co-operation with former fighters because he believes Mayweather can really win. Mayweather pointed out that he fought in Japan because he has great love for the country and the people.
Young and fast
About Mayuckai tells Mayweather that he is a "very young, very fast" fighter who impressed him with his physical and in his opinion of "a serious gym enthusiast." Nasukawa also describes Mayweather in good words. the old boxer can really hit it & # 39; when they are in the fight.
Before that, Mayweather showed that he would like to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov, but that fight seemed to fade in the background.
