Boxer to fight kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in Japan

Floyd Mayweather to face star kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa at RIZIN 14 in Japan on New Year's Eve

"I have fought in the US for all 50 of my fights".

Breaking: Floyd Mayweather announced on Sunday night at a Tokyo press conference that he will participate in a fight in the Rizin Fighting Federation on December 31 in Japan.

While the fight is happening, no one knows exactly what rules will be in place as they did not announce whether they would be boxing or kickboxing - his Instagram picture shows him wearing a boxing glove and an MMA glove.

The fight will be at the Saitama Super Arena, but what form it will take is not yet clear.

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

"We will just see".

Mayweather has never fought professionally under MMA rules and did not specify what format the fight would follow.

The rules of the bout have yet to be determined, but Mayweather said those details will be finalized in the coming days. It would be shocking if Mayweather did anything other than fight under boxing rules, as he did with McGregor.

Priyanka Chopra feels the 'bachelorette vibes'
She captioned the picture, "It's always lovely to be part of someone's special moment and more so when it's a dear friend". Perhaps the most important occasion of all, Chopra is getting in some last-minute girl time before she becomes Mrs.

Floyd Mayweather is set to have a kicking finish to 2018 as it's been confirmed he'll be taking on the Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa. Are you excited to see it?

The Rizin Fighting Federation was founded in 2015 by Japanese businessman Nobuyuki Sakakibara, who was previously the president of Pride Fighting Championships before it was sold to the then-owners of Ultimate Fighting Championship in 2007. "I'm so happy that Mr. Nasukawa accepted this offer in a flash".

"Just for me to be in the ring with a young guy that is hungry ..."

"I can wrestle, I can wrestle little bit".

"I want to continue to build my relationship with Money Team Tokyo", he added, promoting the cross-code bout as an expansion of his businesses into Japan.

He said: "It's the biggest moment in my life and I want to be the man who changes history". I'm pretty sure that will get sorted out in the next couple weeks.

The fight will also mark the first time that Mayweather, a famous creature of habit, has fought outside of his adopted home of Las Vegas since his 2005 bout against Sharmba Mitchell at the Rose Garden in Portland, Oregon.
