Floyd Mayweather Jr. Announces Exhibition Fight Against Mikuru Asakura
Floyd Mayweather Jr. announced an exhibition fight against Mikuru Asakura

Floyd Mayweather will return to RIZIN 38 and face Japanese fighter Mikuru Asakura on September 25 at the Saitama Arena. After manhandling Don Moore in his last exhibition, Mayweather will now return to the roots of his post-retirement boxing career.

Following his 50th and final pro fight against Conor McGregor, ‘Money’ fought and knocked out RIZIN star Tenshin Nasukawa in 2018. He then fought Logan Paul and Don Moore before aiming at the Japanese combat community again. The undefeated boxer will now enter his fourth exhibition and seems optimistic about earning an easy paycheck.

Mikuru Asakura has appeared unfazed by his 45-year-old opponents’ abilities. However, Floyd Mayweather is still a defensive genius inside the ring and would probably make easy work of Asakura.

Watch Mayweather vs. Asakura full press conference below:


29-year-old Asakura made his professional MMA debut in 2012 and has amassed a record of 16-3 so far. He will be the underdog against undefeated five-division world champion Mayweather. Other than his youth, Asakura has very little going for him.

Several Japanese fans will back him to avenge Tenshin Nasukawa's loss, who looked like an amaetur against Mayweather back in 2018.

The clash against Floyd Mayweather could also fetch Asakura the biggest payday of his entire career. Asakura will enjoy home support. Here’s everything about the fight.
