RIZIN 14 Floyd Mayweather vs Tenshin Nasukawa NYE
A kickboxing prodigy fighting a worldclass boxer double his age.. the world has gone mad. Gotta see this

“Floyd Mayweather, guess again.

The 41-year-old boxing legend was part of a shocking announcement on Monday in Japan as he was introduced at a Rizin Fighting Federation press conference in Tokyo, Japan, where officials declared that Mayweather will step into the Rizin ring opposite 20-year-old kickboxing and MMA sensation Tenshin Nasukawa at a year-end show on Dec. 31.”

RIZIN 14 Floyd Mayweather vs Tenshin Nasukawa NYE
Mayweather is teasing on twitter with MMA style gloves..


“Before Nasukawa was introduced, Rizin promoter Nobuyuki Sakakibara provided a brief explanation for why a partnership with Mayweather makes sense.

“I think my shortest answer to that is the fact that now we are aligned to achieve something together and that is hitting a new challenge, taking a step forward to whatever wonderful thing that we can create together,” Sakakibara said via a Japanese translator.”

-
It was not announced exactly what kind of fight Mayweather and Nasukawa would be participating in. Sakakibara could only say that the contest was going to be under “special rules,” but otherwise gave no indication whether it would skew more towards boxing, kickboxing, or MMA. The weight class that the fighters will be competing in was also not mentioned.

'special rules" = 100% boxing match. I can't see Floyd agreeing to anything else.

At best, some limited, ground for 15 seconds, or very strict rules with leg kicks.

RE: RIZIN 14 Floyd Mayweather vs Tenshin Nasukawa NYE
this is the chance for RIZIN and JMMA to raise their profile internationally

will they rise up to the occasion?

even in straight boxing, tenshin is dangerous for mayweather, esp.with MMA gloves

but the last fight I saw with Tenshin and Horiguchi was suspect

so I don't have much faith in the "reality" of this fight

RE: RIZIN 14 Floyd Mayweather vs Tenshin Nasukawa NYE
it makes no sense financially for either party. Floyd was paid $300 mil for McGregor, even half of that of that money is too much for Rizin, even assuming Yakuza is involved in this. And at 40 years old a loss leader fight isn't worth it you'd think, unless he's setting up a monster fight against Pac-man in Asia. I this case I'd assume "special rules" is like an 8 round warm up fight under boxing rules.

how much would it cost to buy the PRIDE brand back from WME? they're like 3.5 bil in debt, sure could use the money right now.

Look at his hat. This is definitely a tune up fight to rematch Pac. I hope Rizin is involved in that as well.
