UFC star Conor McGregor comments on Floyd Mayweather and his RIZIN fight

Flamboyant boxing star Floyd Mayweather has announced his follow-up fight to last year's outlandish Conor McGregor extravaganza - and this one is even more freaky.

The exact nature of the bout in terms of rules for the fight were not announced during the press conference. The match has been called a "Super Challenge", and many details (including the rules, weight limit, number of rounds, and what kind of gloves the fighters will wear) are now unknown.

The American boxer has a 50-0 record and recently revealed he is coming out of retirement to face Nasukawa on New Year's Eve.

Mayweather is widely regarded as the greatest boxer of his generation but seemingly retired after taking his flawless professional record to 50-0 by defeating UFC star Conor McGregor in August previous year.

Japanese promoter the RIZIN Fighting Federation on Monday said rules and the weight class for the bout have not been set.

"He's young and he's undefeated so it's obvious he's doing something right", Mayweather said of Nasukawa.

I am not really sure what to expect, what about you?

"As a professional I haven't had a chance to go outside the USA to display my skills and to display my talent for the world".

"It's always been a goal of mine to go outside the USA and go into another arena and display talent as a professional because I did it as an amateur".

The 20-year-old Nasukawa, speaking at a news conference alongside Mayweather, called it "probably the biggest event of my life so far".

Meanwhile, Mayweather also sounded enthusiastic about the match-up and suggested it might not be a one-and-done deal with Rizin.

"Honestly it was surprise offer but I accepted without hesitation", said Nasukawa. My punch can change history.
