Floyd Mayweather is set to make a special appearance in Saitama, Japan on New Year’s Eve for RIZIN FF 14. The Japanese mixed martial arts promotion called upon the undefeated boxing legend for an exhibition boxing match that will top their annual NYE spectacle.
In the bout, Mayweather will be taking on Tenshin Nasukawa, a Japanese kickboxing phenom.
The 20-year-old prodigy amassed an amateur record of 99-5 by his 18th birthday and eventually turned pro with an overall record of 105-1-1. Tenshin is currently 27-0 (20 KOs) as a professional kickboxer and holds a 4-0 professional record in mixed martial arts.
Of course, with such impressive credentials, it is no surprise that kicks will not be allowed in the bout which will air exclusively via online pay-per-view on FITE TV.
Unfortunately for viewers in the United States and Japan, the main event will be blacked out and excluded from the broadcast. However, those who are viewing the international stream will get to see Mayweather’s showcase bout.
