Rules announced for Floyd Mayweather vs. Tenshin Nasukawa

Rules announced for Floyd Mayweather vs. Tenshin Nasukawa

There will be no judges, no official record and no kicking and the duration of the fight will only last nine minutes, splitted into three rounds.

He said at the time that spectators would see more than mere "casual sparring" and that the 20-year-old Nasukawa would have the opportunity to knock Mayweather out despite the fight being billed as an exhibition.

"This is a great way for me to go out there and give people some entertainment", Mayweather said. He said he was happily retired and in the business of entertaining.

Mayweather earlier also announced plans to fight Manny Pacquiao in December.

If both fighters are still standing at the end of the three rounds, it is expected that it will either be called a draw or the referee will decide the victor, since there will be no judges.

"I'm going to go out there, have fun and do what I do".

Floyd Mayweather announces he will be fighting Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa on New Year's Eve.

Well, the reception was good, the demand is there and Nissan are building 50 GT-R50 models. The engine on the GT-R50 is further mated to a reinforced dual-clutch six-speed gearbox.

Well, as it turns out, Mayweather is going to fight Japanese youngster Tenshin Nasukawa, but, as expected by many, the result is not going to actually count towards either of the fighters' records and is being seen exclusively as an exhibition match.

Nobuyuki Sakakibara, the head of Rizin Fighting Federation, which is putting on the three-round exhibition, told reporters in Japan last month that negotiations were ongoing to stage the event despite the 41-year-old Mayweather's apparent reluctance.

In August 2016, Mayweather stopped MMA star Conor McGregor in the 10th round when the Irishman chose to step into the world of boxing. I'm going to put everything out there and show my strengths. "As an athlete, this is something that's a great honor and a challenging task". I'm going to use my weapons against him.

His opponent, 21, his junior, warned that he wanted to "make a big impression". McGregor has offered to fight Mayweather under MMA rules, but The Money Team fighter said he has no desire to fight any MMA fighter under their rules.

Surely the world was not going to buy into this following the farce with the whole Conor McGregor fight of a year ago.

On November 17, the fight was finally confirmed, but was presented as an exhibition.

Nasukawa, also in Vegas Thursday, said he hopes his countrymen will get behind the show.
