In a surprising bit of news, Floyd Mayweather will fight in Japanese MMA/kickboxing promotion RIZIN FF.

Word came tonight during a press conference (via Ariel Helwani) that Mayweather will face undefeated Japanese kickboxing sensation Tenshin Nasukawa at RIZIN FF 14 on December 31. The news was revealed in a press conference:

Lol. About the only question will be if they’re using mma gloves or boxing gloves but yeah I see this strictly being a boxing match with maybe the gloves being different.

But meanwhile other outlets are proclaiming "Mayweather to make kickboxing debut". GTFO, dude is not getting kicked and he is definitely not planning on getting kicked

Yeah. Mayweather's post on IG says a lot and very little. A lot because it was very long winded and if he's saying the truth (because Japan has a history of being shady AF in their MMA orgs.) that's one crazy story. It also says little because ONE has not given their formal explanation other than 'oh well, it didn't work out. If it was boxing ONLY, Mayweather will have the upperhand, no questions asked. It this was any other 'hybrid' or 'exhibition' bout, Mayweather WOULD GET WRECKED!!
