After a highly publicized fight (and victory) against Conor McGregor in August of last year, Floyd Mayweather will be going up against kickboxing sensation Tenshin Nasukawa at Rizin on New Year's Eve this year, according to ESPN.
Perhaps the most interesting aspect of this fight is that the rules are yet to be decided - and Nasukawa is an ideal candidate to take on Mayweather in a whole range of disciplines. The match has been called a "Super Challenge", and many details (including the rules, weight limit, number of rounds, and what kind of gloves the fighters will wear) are now unknown.
While Nasukawa has had kickboxing rules fights at two of the last four Rizin events, MMA would appear the most likely middle ground for Mayweather to take him on - by no means a gentle introduction to the sport.

Floyd Mayweather of the US speaks during a press conference in Tokyo, Monday, Nov. 5. With an exhibition bout expected, Rizin's promoter, Nobuyuki Sakakibara, did offer that the fight would be under "special rules" but offered no news on whether there would be a proposed weight class or the fight would operate under an open weight.
"I think he's young, very strong and very fast and he undefeated so it's obvious he's doing something right", Mayweather said. I'm not really anxious about the rules. This presented itself, I spoke with my team, I got with Rizin and we put it together.

Taylor's body is scheduled to be flown back to Dover Air Force Base today and funeral arrangements are pending, he said. The local police chief was killed in that attack , which was later claimed by the Taliban. "It's bitter", Burton said.
"I always wanted to display my skills outside the United States and be in a special fight".
"It's always been a goal of mine to go outside the USA and go into another arena and display talent as a professional because I did it as an amateur". Then, McGregor was a UFC superstar and Mayweather was also a retired boxer.
The 20-year-old with a bleached-blond quiff called it an "easy decision" to accept the offer to face Mayweather in Saitama, north of Tokyo. I'm a little surprised myself.
