Looking to follow up his one-round exhibition against Tenshin Nasukawa, Floyd Mayweather looks to continue his world tour of exhibitions in 2019.
Last week, Mayweather alleged $80 million in offers have been made for him to fight in exhibitions, one of which is a $10 million showdown this summer again in Japan.
“They called me, I got another one in Japan, in July… for like $10 million, three rounds. I got another one in July, same rules, always my rules. It’s a Japanese boxer, a former boxer from what I heard, I got a call today. In exhibitions this year alone, I think I got about 4 or 5 exhibitions this year… I’ll make about $80 million, this year,” Mayweather told TMZ.
Mayweather retired from Boxing for the third time in 2017, following his TKO win over Conor McGregor in McGregor’s first pro boxing match. From there Mayweather would tease a debut in MMA or a return to boxing to rematch McGregor, Manny Pacquiao, or even face-off with current UFC lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Instead, Mayweather would negotiate a boxing exhibition against Tenshin Nasukawa with RIZIN for their RIZIN 14 event on New Year’s Eve, which almost did not happen due to issues surrounding the rules.
