It’s official, Floyd Mayweather will end his retirement once again, this time to face off against Japanese kickboxing phenom, Tenshin Nasukawa.
This is about as crazy a story as we’ve ever woken up to, eh?
We made an attempt to better understand the admittedly shocking news that Floyd will take on Tenshin earlier today but the longer we sit with it, the more real and ultimately, more interesting a decision it has become.
The first trailer for the showdown dropped shortly after the press conference, one that attempts to hype us up for a fight we quite literally know nothing about.

One would have to assume that a businessman as savvy as Floyd would not put himself in harm’s way – even for a paycheque – so it’s safe to reckon that this one will be contested under boxing rules.
As for the fight’s length and virtually every other variable, not much else is known.
We will keep you updated on this story as it unfolds.
