Mayweather has teased a foray into mixed martial arts in recent months, but his fight against Nasukawa is unlikely to be under MMA rules, according to ESPN's Ariel Helwani.

The combat sports world was dealt a jaw-dropping surprise late last night when news broke that Floyd Mayweather's RIZIN debut was coming this year.

Nasukawa began kickboxing in the sixth grade and reportedly built a 99-5-1 amateur record, earning acclaim in February 2017 by knocking out former IBF flyweight champion Amnat Ruenroeng. That suggests Mayweather is willing to ditch boxing and try out MMA.

Mayweather (50-0) announced the bout in a news conference in Tokyo on Monday.

Conor McGregor appears as confused as everyone else with the news Floyd Mayweather will compete in a "special" fight against kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa at Rizin FF 14 in December.

"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 particular about the rules, with or without kicks", Nasukawa said of the upcoming bout with Mayweather.

"And if it means working with a great guy like this (Rizin president Nobuyuki Sakakibara) then there is no problem". Mayweather posted a video on Instagram early Saturday that showed him and Pacquiao together, reportedly in Japan, jawing at each other over a possible second fight.

He also vowed to end Mayweather's long string of victories. If I see an opportunity to make $300 million in 36 minutes why not, ' he said after that fight in Las Vegas.

"It's the biggest moment in my life and I want to be the man who changes history".

"It was a surprise offer but I accepted without hesitation", said Nasukawa.
