Floyd Mayweather Says Tokyo Fight's Back On, 'We're Gonna Make It Happen'

Image Update Mayweather Says NYE Fight in Tokyo is Back on Going to Work it Out Image #2

Floyd Mayweather has said that the Rizin 14 bout against Tenshin Nasukawa is back on.

"RIZIN Chairman, Nobuyuki Sakakibara, is now holding discussions towards carrying out the match based on the original contract between our promotion and Mr. Mayweather", RIZIN said in a statement.

Now, in a recent interview with TMZ Sports, Mayweather said the fight is back on as a three-round boxing exhibition.

Mayweather also disclosed to TMZ that the fight would act more as a boxing exhibition than any blockbuster fight, previously stating on Instagram that there was never an agreement for a legitimate fight to be set up.

An "exhibition" huh? Guess we'll see what that entails.

With that, Mayweather said the fight was off.

If you thought you'd heard the last of Floyd Mayweather Jr. fighting rising Japanese star, Tenshin Nasukawa, guess again... "We're gonna make it happen".

The bout between Mayweather and Tenshin Nasukawa, first announced earlier this month, was abruptly scrapped by the American boxer shortly after he revealed his plans to take on the kickboxer.

It was announced last week in a press conference in Japan that Mayweather would come out of retirement once again to face Nasukawa at RIZIN 14 on December 31 in what many believed was an official fight. I said, 'you just tell me where Khabib has made nine figures before in the octagon.

The New Year's Eve event captivated the combat sports world.

Mayweather says he's very well off financially but what rich person doesn't want to add to their fortune? "Just for promoting this event, just so far, I have made seven figures".

"I'm the A-side. If you guys want the fight to happen, you he must come my way. Just because I'm retired from boxing, people don't think that I can still go out - I still make appearances worldwide and still make a ton of money".

Unlike his insanely lucrative novelty bout with Conor McGregor in the summer of 2017, Mayweather makes it clear that this bout will not go on his record.
