Mayweather fighting in exhibition tonight

Former world champion and future Hall of Famer Floyd Mayweather faces 20-year-old kickboxing star Tenshin Nasukawa tonight in a three-round exhibition at the Saitama Arena in Saitama, Japan. They will go for three three-minute rounds using straight boxing rules. Both will wear RIZIN 8 ounce gloves and there will be no judges. The bout will not go on official boxing or MMA records. Mayweather is reportedly banking as much as $88 million for his trouble. No U.S. TV.

Note: On his Instagram page, Floyd wrote “What if I told you I was making $9,000,000 for 9 minutes of sparring in Tokyo Japan would you do the same if you were me? I like to call it a 9 minute walk thru.”
