Floyd Mayweather has booked his next exhibition boxing match against MMA fighter Mikuru Asakura in RIZIN.
The announcement was made during a press conference on Monday, which was airing the event on the new RIZIN Fight Pass service, the exact date of which is yet to be determined.
“I was just being inducted into the Hall of Fame, which is truly amazing,” Mayweather said during the press conference. “My body of work as far as when I’m talking about my career, I’m truly, truly blessed way beyond belief.
“It’s still a great feeling now to be able to travel the world and basically do these exhibition bouts and have fun and my legacy is already engraved in stone but it’s still great to go around the world and entertain people from all walks of life. I’m pretty sure he’s going to come out and give his best like any and every guy but I’ve done seen every style. So my job is to just go out there, be me, have fun and do what I do best.”
Since retiring from boxing in 2017 following a 10th round TKO win over former UFC champion Conor McGregor, Mayweather has been busy with several exhibition bouts, including his first trip to Japan, where he defeated Tenshin Nasukawa with three knockdowns in the first round, causing his corner to throw in the towel to stop the fight.
Most recently, the 45-year-old fighter dominated Don Moore in an exhibition held in Abu Dhabi and afterwards he teased another bout being booked before the end of 2022.
