Floyd Mayweather to fight Japanese kickboxer on New Year's Eve

That being said, the undefeated pugilist did recently tell TMZ that he hoped to fight in Tokyo in the near future, and that mixed martial artists and kickboxers were being considered as potential opponents.
Speaking at a news conference in Tokyo on Monday, Mayweather said the decision to fight in Japan was about expanding his global profile.
A world champion at five different weights in boxing, Mayweather has never fought in mixed martial arts and it has yet to be decided what rules and format the fight, which will take place in Saitama, will follow.
The fight will be at the Saitama Super Arena, but what form it will take is not yet clear.
Mayweather will turn 42 in February, but he said he's looking forward to working with Rizin FF and fighting a risky opponent in 20-year-old Nasukawa, who is undefeated in kickboxing competition and most recently defeated Kyoji Horiguchi. "It's all about entertainment and that's what we want to do for the people".
Floyd Mayweather says the form of his fight with Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa is yet to be revealed.
Mayweather's last bout was in 2017 when he beat Irish MMA fighter Conor McGregor, running his boxing record to 50-0 and earning close to $300 million (£230m).
The rules of the bout have yet to be determined, but Mayweather said those details will be finalized in the coming days. "But it will be a great fight that everybody will be so excited to see".
"Just for me to be in the ring with a young guy that is hungry ... I'm so happy that Mr. Nasukawa accepted this offer in a flash". I'll speak with my team and get with Rizin to come up with a great idea. I'm a little surprised myself.
He said: "It's the biggest moment in my life and I want to be the man who changes history". It's not out of the realm of possibility that the bout is fought under kickboxing rules.
