Rules for Floyd vs Tenshin revealed...and there are no judges! - Mayweather

Floyd Mayweather is all set to take part in an exhibition fight against a 20-year old Japanese Kickboxing sensation Tenshin Nasukawa on Dec. 31 at the 37,000-seat Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan under Rizin Fighting Federation. This will be Floyd’s first fight professional or exhibition outside of Las Vegas in nearly 12-years.

Nasukawa is a talented kickboxer who made his professional debut when he was only 15-years old. He has had 27 kickboxing fights which he won all of them and he is also undefeated in Mixed Martial Arts, where he has had four fights.

However, Tenshin Nasukawa is in the United States right now. He has a media workout planned with Floyd Mayweather at Mayweather’s gym and the rules for the bout have been announced. The fight will take place at a contract weight of 147 pounds with standard three-minute rounds as relevant in boxing. The fighters will wear 8-ounce Rizin-brand boxing gloves. Since this bout is an exhibition, there will be no judges for the fight.

I love competing against fighters from all walks of life like in my amateur days,” Mayweather said via press release. “It’s all about entertainment. Nine minutes of entertainment. It’s going to be amazing.

I’m in the entertainment business. That’s what I go out there to do. I love to do this. I’m working out to put on a show for three rounds.

Meanwhile, Nasukawa is equally excited for the bout and has been sparring former lightweight world champion Jorge Linares who trains in Japan and is recently coming off of a TKO loss to Vasiliy Lomachenko which took place in May earlier this year at the Madison Square Garden.

There’s never been a Japanese fighter to face Floyd Mayweather in the ring,” Nasukawa said, per the release. “As an athlete, this is something that’s a great honour and a challenging task. I’d like to make a big impression.
