Floyd Mayweather will participate in MMA fight on New Year’s Eve

Floyd Mayweather announces next fight with key detail missing

The American earned more than $240m for fighting UFC star Conor McGregor 17 months ago in Las Vegas, and has been involved in four of the top five biggest grossing fights in combat sports history.

Mayweather and Nasukawa were introduced at a news conference on Monday in Tokyo by Rizin officials.

Floyd Mayweather is reportedly set to make his MMA debut against an undefeated fighter.

RIZIN is a Japanese promotion, and the "Super Challenge" fight between the two will take place at RIZIN 14 on Monday, Dec. 31 in Saitama, Japan.

As for Nasukawa, the 20-year old fighter from Japan is now 27-0 as a professional kickboxer with 21 knockouts.

"But this particular bout is special as far as giving people something they've never seen before". I think when it comes to experience, I have more experience on my side but when it comes to youth, youth is on his side.

"We'll talk about that, we'll get that situated within the next couple weeks", Mayweather said about the rules and weight class for the fight.

Former five-weight world champion Mayweather beat UFC's Conor McGregor in a boxing match in August 2017 to extend his ideal record to 50 wins.

"When I was offered this card, I accepted it right away without any delay whatsoever".

"I just want to entertain".

He added: "You might be surprised after hearing this announcement, and honestly speaking I'm a little surprised myself".

"It's the biggest moment in my life and I want to be the man who changes history". I'll speak with my team and get with Rizin to come up with a great idea.

'I wanted to do something different.

Ariel Helwani said tonight that the rules and weight still had to be worked out.
