Floyd Mayweather Has Confirmed He's Organised Tenshin Nasukawa's Next Fight

Floyd Mayweather has confirmed he's organised Tenshin Nasukawa's next fight and it's another 'exhibition'. Sigh.

On New Years Eve, Mayweather returned to the ring by facing Nasukawa in a three-round exhibition but it didn't last long.

He stopped the Japanese star inside the very first round after knocking him down three times.

And it appears Mayweather is setting up another exhibition bout for Nasukawa. This time, against his fighter Gervonta Davis who recorded his 21st professional victory against Hugo Ruiz at the weekend in California.

Davis floored Ruiz in one round to retain his WBA (super) super-featherweight title, and his next fight will be versus Nasukawa, per Mayweather.

"We're talking about May [for Davis' next fight]," the 41-year-old said.

"if that's okay with him. He got an exhibition bout with the guy Tenshin in Japan, in April. He is fighting Tenshin in an exhibition match in Japan, in RIZIN. I'm proud of Tank. He is going to stay active. So first it's Tenshin in April and then in May it's the real fight."

So, another trip to Tokyo, Japan, for Team Mayweather.

Davis, who's touted as one of the best fighters in boxing and is still only 24-years-old, will face the kickboxer before defending his belt in May.

Nasukawa got absolutely destroyed by the former 'P4P' king. If Davis does indeed take on him, you'd have to believe the results will be the very similar or even worse for Nasukawa.

Get ready for Davis vs. Nasukawa in an exhibition, folks.
