The next fight of Floyd Mayweather isn’t boxing, it isn’t MMA…then what is it?

Floyd Mayweather is set to return. In a shocking announcement, it was revealed that the legendary boxer would fight Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa on December 31st in RIZIN.

What rules with Floyd Mayweather fight under?

This will be the first fight of Mayweather after his showdown with Conor McGregor which saw him stop McGregor and maintain his undefeated run. He is now 50-0 in his professional boxing career. And the record is unlikely to change after December 31st.

This is because the fight between Mayweather and Nasukawa isn’t going to under boxing rules. In fact, it is not going to be under Mixed Martial Arts rules as well. The current plans for Mayweather and Nasukawa is unknown but several reports are suggesting that it is going to be a two or three round exhibition match.

If you are still unaware of Nasukawa, he is a 20-year-old kickboxer fighting out of Tokyo, Japan. He is also the current RISE Featherweight champion. He holds an impressive record of 27-0 in his kickboxing career while he holds a perfect 4-0 record in his MMA career.
