Wasn't Tenshin fighting cans at 125??

I'm all about some Tenshin, but he's too small.

4-0 in MMA competes in kickboxing at 126 so probably.  Didn't Horiguchi recently fight him in kickboxing?  He's already said he's okay with a straight boxing match.  I'd imagine 140 pounds.

Jesus he started kickboxing at 15 and it was 55 kilos until May of last year.  That's 121 pounds.

This is ridiculous.  Floyd is 3 inches taller and probably 7 inch reach advantage.

If ever there was a clear fixed fight, this is it

Why does he have to fix a fight with a midget Asian who doesn't have the power to knock him out?

Tenshin is a 125 pound kickboxer. He's not shooting for ****ing takedowns. And I don't know if all you geniuses realize this, but it's easier to see a head kick coming than it is a jab. One is substantially faster than the other. 

Floyd will embarrass this kid. I expect a very early knockout, no matter what the rules. Floyd won't like being kicked in the legs, but all he has to do is land one solid punch down the middle on his chin, and Tenshin will stop throwing those all together. It will devolve into a boxing match either way.

So a 20 year old standing 5'5" and kickboxing at 121/126 pounds while competing 4 times in MMA at 125 pounds would have to throw a fight against Floyd Mayweather?

I'm sorry but you're a goddamn idiot.  This match will take place at a minimum of 140 pounds.  It WILL NOT be under MMA rules.  However even if it was this a Japanese kickboxer/karate fighter.  Floyd smacks this BOY around under any set of rules.

If you idiots aren't trying to see who's the biggest feg you are definitely competing for biggest idiot.  No chance whatsoever Floyd would get taken down by a 20 year old Japanese kickboxer that competes at 126.

You people are so goddamn stupid that the King is finna retire.

Floyd fighting in Japan is solid move. The UFC doesn't promote anymore and would surely get things wrong with no press tours,terrible posters and Dana pretending he Don King of the show.

I love the move. More people are starting to realize the UFC not the end all and be all of MMA.

Feels like a publicity stunt.  Get people talking about Rizin, fight falls through, Floyd gets his appearance check, end of story.  

I'll believe that this "fight" is going to happen when they start round 1.

LOL when did this happen with Mayweather McGregor? TMT was in control of everything throughout....Dana and co. were just riding the waive just like Rizin will do.

So he's fighting a 20 year old with a record of 4 - 0 that's predominantly a kickboxer and is going to modify the rules so that there's no kicking? Never mind the fact that it's in Rizin and the Japanese are known for fixing fights

 

Ya not missing New Years Eve for this BAWL SHIET

If his foot comes off of the canvas one time, Floyd will throw a cross right down the middle and sit him down. 

This little goof eats one solid punch with MMA gloves and he'll be seeing stars.
