    Yes, this is real life. And yes, the rule set will indeed be Marquess of Queensberry (rather than kickboxing, MMA or karate - which are Nasukawa's background)...although it won't be Mayweather putting his 50-0 record on the line, nor the "Prodigy" making his official crossover pro debut. This will be a 3 round exhibition using 8oz gloves @ welterweight, on New Year's Eve @ Saitama Prefecture Super Arena.

    I hope they set Floyd up and this 5'5" kickboxer puts the beats on Floyd for being such an attention ***** at 40+ years old. Hope it happens like this...

    Well, this cat already put another slick defensive former world champion boxer in check, a couple of years ago. You remember Amnat Ruenroeng, who reigned as IBF world flyweight titlist from 2014 until 2016? Nasukawa destroyed his ass in kickboxing...and granted he was past his prime in our sport but not by all that much, that you expect him to be getting his shit pushed in by anybody, even in a different combat sport (but one in which he previously had experience).

    Void is now stinking up the JMMA world. Fighters were pulled from the card(including Cro Cop) so this farce could be afforded. When will this toxin go away?

    I mean, tbf Mirko needs to hang 'em up as much as PBF does, no?

    He wanted to retire on this very card. He's booked to rematch Nelson in Bellator a few months from now. In any case I think he'll very likely hang the gloves up in 2019.

    The other thing to bear in mind with Rizin is they are shady as hell. When they were set up as Pride FC they would have things such as clauses in contracts stating we will not test you for steroids and tell fighters they are fighting at bigger weights the day of the fight. All of their fighters contracts were illegal. They have it in them to change the rules of the fight once Floyd is in the ring. If their 21 year old poster boy smashes him with leg kicks they have an Asian superstar on their hands. This article explains what could happen.

    Why not just say boxing rules? Makes you seem pedantic.

    This is embarassing. No real boxing fan...or even casual Mayweather fan should support this.

    There wasn't drug testing in Japan period. Every fighter knew that when they agreed to fight in pride.

    Now there is a chance that Floyd will get screwed over. If you want some context into what could happen then watch the below. Both fights from UWFi. Difference is though that Takada was being booked as a monster and the best fighter in all combat sports. Calling out world champions from other promotions and the ace of the company. Tenshin isn't that yet but a win over Floyd does make him a Star.

    It's like "models" going to Dubai for a "party" and then getting mad that they have to become human toilets for the money. The fighters run over to Japan without any idea whats going to happen because they don't properly do any research and they are greedy. Just for the world wide controversy I hope Floyd gets that sweet chin music as soon as the ball drops in Times Square.

    Isn't there quite a bit of spread in weight between them? Amnat was 112, haven't people been calling Tenshin a featherweight (don't know how divisions work in kickboxing... don't know how anything really works in kickboxing if I'm being honest)?

    Still, interesting indeed...

    Floyd is really challenging himself lately :rolleyes: I hear he's looking at FIDE next to have a showdown with their champions in the ring.

    Mayweather needs to be careful here as they could do a double cross to get the home fighter over.

    Can't wait to see Floyd's professional record improve to a 51-0.
