Floyd Mayweather already has a date and a rival for a new exhibition. It will be in September, in Japan and before Mikuru Asakura, an MMA fighter, under the Japanese mixed martial arts organization Rizin. “I am an MMA fighter, but I will take this opportunity and use it to raise my name and value internationally,” Asakura 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 who is in front of me can say: ‘Mayweather does not need to do more exhibitions,’ said the former five-division world champion.
