Floyd Mayweather’s next fight will be his most bizarre one yet. An official announcement was made that Mayweather will fight in Japanese MMA promotion RIZIN against kickboxing expert Tenshin Nasukawa. The record of Nasukawa is already 27-0 at the age of 20.
Will Tenshin fight Floyd in boxing only? "I'm not particular. With or without kicks, I wouldn't mind."
Will Floyd fight kickboxing? "I just want to entertain. I will speak with my team and let my team get with Rizin. I'm sure they'll come up with a great idea."

Mayweather taking another circus fight seemed obvious, but no one could have predicted the spectacle of an international fight on New Year’s Eve.
It seems the new marketing plan of Mayweather is to compete against non-boxers he can destroy to continue adding wins and millions of dollars to his name. Not bad work if you can get it.
