Floyd Mayweather is ready for a new exhibition fight. the opponent will be Asakura, MMA fighter and who will be tested in September, in Japan. “I am an MMA fighter, but I will take this opportunity and use it to raise my name and value internationally,” the Japanese mixed martial arts organization Rizin commented.

Mayweather promised to put on a great show for Japanese fans in what will be his fourth exhibition fight after having measured and knocked out Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa in December 2018, he later fought the youtuber Logan Paul in June 2021 and to boxer Don Moore in May.

“My legacy is already set in stone. It’s still great to go around the world and entertain people from all walks of life. My job is to just go out there, be me, have fun and do what I do best… When September comes in Japan, people want to see me still competing and see if a young man in front of me can say: ‘Mayweather doesn’t need to do any more exhibitions,’ said the former five-division world champion.
