Floyd Mayweather vs Tenshin Nasukawa Betting Odds

Floyd Mayweather will make his return to the ring for the Japanese RIZIN Promotion on December 31st, 2018 where he will face off against twenty-year-old Japanese kickboxing Superstar Tenshin Nasukawa.

The New Year’s Eve showcase event will be a three round fight with boxing rules. The event will take place at the Saitama Super Arena, in Saitama, Japan and is expected to draw in a full capacity crowd.

What is “RIZIN”?

RIZIN FF was formed in 2015, by the former owner of Pride MMA Championships, which was bought out by the UFC a decade ago.

RIZIN is quickly becoming the most popular MMA promotion in Asia, and their inaugural fight card was aired in the US via Spike TV. MMA and combats sports in general are huge in Japan and RIZIN are at the forefront of the modern professional combat sport in Asia.

Floyd Mayweather – Why is he fighting in RIZIN?

Floyd Mayweather Jr has enjoyed a glittering career at the very top of the sport of boxing and at the age of 41, he seems to be enjoying life and the opportunities to take on new challenges.

The Mayweather vs Nasukawa betting odds will be very much stacked in Mayweather’s favour and with a seven-figure deal in place to secure his name on the fight card on New Year’s Eve, it is a no-brainer move for him to have some fun, while travelling and seeing how combat sports operate in other parts of the world.

Floyd Mayweather Jr is unbeaten in 50 professional boxing fights and is perhaps the best defensive boxer of all time. He’s the highest earning boxer of all time too, raking in multiple nine-figure sums down the years. Mayweather took on Conor McGregor in 2017, so we know he is open to new things and he is a master at keeping his name in the headlines.

Who is Tenshin Nasukawa?

Tenshin Nasukawa is a young and talented Japanese kickboxing specialist who, even at the age of just 20, has a wealth of experience and top level success. He is a world champion in his discipline and will relish the opportunity to share the arena with a legendary name such as Floyd Mayweather Jr.

All of the Mayweather v Nasukawa betting tips will be against Nasukawa, but we should not underestimate how good a fighter this young man is. He will have the unquenching support of the Japanese people and in his homeland, Nasukawa is very much a rising Superstar.

Nasukawa fights in the Southpaw stance and is also a highly proficient karate practitioner, so his judge of distance and range is right up there with the best fighters on the planet. The trouble is, he isn’t a boxer… which is a big problem against Floyd Mayweather! Can he cause an upset during the three round exhibition? It’s highly unlikely, but remains to be seen.

Floyd Mayweather vs Tenshin Nasukawa Betting Tips

Mayweather v Nasakawa betting tips are a fairly simple equation. Nasukawa is considerably smaller than Mayweather, so it is highly unlikely to the point of virtually impossible that he could knock Mayweather out.

Mayweather is not known as a KO artist either and there is just the three rounds to work with. Mayweather is a master technician and will want to get out of there with zero marks on his face, so we can expect him to use his superior experience and footwork to excellent effect here.
