    Such a strange thing for mayweather to do. Tenshin isn’t even that well known outside of mma/kickboxing

    They obviously will fight under boxing rules. Easiest payday in Floyd's career. This will be worse than Danny Garcia vs Rod Salka

    What is Floyd doing, is he having some financial trouble or just bored ?

    i know if its boxing, it will be easy for floyd but it still take an a lot of effort to train and fight.

    Regarding the rules and weight, Rizin chairman Nobuyuki Sakakibara said “we still have some more work ahead of us.” Everyone I’ve talked to said they’d be shocked if it’s MMA.

    Mayweather says the “weight class and rules” will “get situated” in the next couple of weeks.

    Mayweather calls this fight a “special bout” and that he’s not really worried about weight class.

    Isnt gonna to be anything but boxing. Tenshin is a legit beast at muay thai and had beaten stadium level Thais. Lawrence kenshin who does very good HL's/fight breakdowns did one on him a few yrs back. This whole thing seems bizarre, doubt it happens.

    Facts:

    The Japanese love Mayweather.
    This will probably generate more than the PAC fight and surpass Mayweather vs Canelo Mexican TV ratings. Tokyo alone is 30mil+ in population.

    The Japanese will go crazy with promotion on this one that will invite the majority of Japanese casuals. I wonder what the stateside portal and purchasing will be.

    This is a huge stab to the UFC. The UFC must be hating themselves right now since both Floyd and Khabib know that Dana didn’t let the fight happen, obviously all under Dana’s control with Khabib’s contract.

    Floyd always wins. The only powerhouse in the Combat sports world are PBC and DAZN. Of course for Asian territories it’s a different picture, but the “big” men are all in the Western part of the world,

    the japanese don't love mayweather, in fact unless youre a boxing fan, most japanese don't even know who he is or care

    which makes it obvious that the main purpose of the bout is to promote rizin overseas, in the US

    I've been calling for this fight for ages, it just had to be made and I'm glad they finally listened to the fans
