Undefeated boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. will fight undefeated kickboxer/mixed martial artist Tenshin Nasukawa at RIZIN 14 on December 31. It is currently unknown if the two will compete in boxing, kickboxing, MMA, or a “mixed rules” matchup.

Mayweather (50-0: Boxing) last competed in a mega-fight against UFC star Conor McGregor in August of last year. “Money” retired after defeating McGregor under boxing rules via TKO in round 10.

Nasukawa (27-0: Kickboxing, 4-0: MMA) most recently defeated Kyoji Horiguchi via unanimous decision under kickboxing rules in September. He’s earned 21 knockouts over the span of 27 career kickboxing bouts.
