Mayweather has teased a foray into mixed martial arts in recent months, but his fight against Nasukawa is unlikely to be under MMA rules, according to ESPN's Ariel Helwani. And both the rules and weight class are unknown. Oh, will it be an MMA or boxing battle?
Again, we don't yet know. Mayweather has never had a professional fight outside of the United States. Meanwhile, in Tokyo, Tenshin Nasukawa's sole career achievement was just being born.
'He sees absolutely everything, ' the commentator said. "He not only won his amateur bouts, but he styled on guys. I was winning competitions at a national level", he told Bleacher Report.
"I would probably say that this is my biggest event in life, so far", said Nasukawa."I'm very happy that this is going to materialise". There was no specific individual that inspired me. He won via a tenth-round technical knockout to improve his record to a spotless 50-0.
There is the possibility of the bout being fought under amended, hybrid rules which Rizin do have a history of employing. "I would like to prove with my own fist what others couldn't do in the past", said the 20-year-old, who added he accepted the offer to fight Mayweather without hesitation.
Despite being 41-years-old, his hands still pack a potent punch, but the addition of elbows, knees, kicks and grappling in MMA represent a huge challenge for a boxer boasting an unblemished 50-0 record dating back to 1996. The current RISE Featherweight Champion, Tenshin began to make a name for himself with wins over the likes of Amnat Ruenroeng and Wanchalong PK Saenchai in the KNOCK OUT promotion out of Thailand.

Detectives begin 'unraveling' mystery of sisters found dead, bound in Hudson River
However, there is little detail about why they were in New York City and whether they have been there since late August. Police released a sketch of the two women found laying on rocks near the Hudson River off of Riverside Park.
Which makes this fight even more surprising.
At his gym in Tokyo, you'll find his mum at the reception, greeting members and visitors on arrival.
When he's away from the gym, Nasukawa relaxes with a spot of fishing.
"We still have more work cut out for us, but we think it will be a great fight everyone will be excited to see", Sakakibara said through a translator.
But after all these years, the one thing we've learned is this: Don't bet against Floyd Mayweather.
